Don't Blame Refs Please!!

Post by artful dodger » Fri 17 Aug, 2012 10:15 pm

After each origin game we hear coaches/fans question every close decision that may not go there teams way get lambasted by media and fans alike.
Let's not lower ourselves to these standards, I was out there tonight and thought yea there might of been a few dubious decisions go against us but over the course of the year we have had our fair share of calls go our way that on closer inspection may have had us out of the 8,eg round 1 Vs Sharkies.
Lets be measured with our criticism please!!!

Oh no, we wouldn't want to hurt their feelings, would we? That's okay, we'll just have to happy with no points instead of two

You can't defend the indefensible. Calls were absolutely disgraceful.

The refs need to be accountable.

People reckon Marshall is a protected species, they haven't seen anything. The men in Pink may as well be the Men in Black - they are untouchable.

I'll b**** and moan loudly and proudly about the refs until i'm out of breath, since our players and our coach are not allowed to,

How is questioning - criticising WRONG decisions by officials that have a freeking remote control and can watch replay after bloody replay lowering ourselves??????

Round one was round one....24 bloody weeks ago ....you might feel better that we got the rub then....but the Sharks didnt.

Guess what bud....SOMEONE ALWAYS LOSES! So take your high & mighty moral righteous attitude for a long walk off a short pier eh?

I don't think you quite understand what was at stake tonight . I'll leave it at that
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

I hate using bad refs as a cop out. But we lost coz of them. 2 horrendous video ref calls both against us. Hampsteads only defense is if he says " I hit the wrong button......twice"

I think it all comes down to the fact that Fulton has his hand on Pritchard (??) , but then again Ayshford was also impeded

If it was us scoring I probably would of been dirty if it was denied

Hell yeah Ink. I was also at the game, and the dogs were playing 8-9 metres all night. Half of them were nowhere near the 10 all night. And I'm talking 3-4 times each set. How hard is it for a ref to look from side to side? They don't need to be looking at the ruck, that's what the pocket refs for. The touchies should get a job at Maccas

Our season was destroyed by these incompetents tonight - I have every right to be bloody mad!
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen

My friend this is type of rhetoric we can leave to other clubs, there are things during a game we can control other thing (refs decision) we can't, don't get me wrong I think the try that was given after the obstruction was no try, but referees interpretations can be questioned but never really changed, let's look @ the 1% parts Of our own game before we point blame ok

I don't whinge about the refs normally, but after tonight when they awarded that obstruction try to the dogs, I think all the refs should Go back to refs school and learn
The game all from the start

Jason Taylor wrote a huge article on how Bulldogs were deliberately shepherding and impeding defenders. They go and do it blatantly and after 50 replays still get it wrong.

Harrigan has ruined refereeing with his "interpretations". He should be sacked.

Your kidding aren't you!! The referees were disgraceful. Oh and by the way i'm sick and tired of hearing about Cronulla - what about the blatant knock on by their fullback 10 mtrs out that probably would have led to a WT try and an extra 6 points and huge momentum.
