Referees

Post by larrycorowa » Sun 18 May, 2014 9:27 am

I had my doubts initially but I thought the referees earned a pass mark tonight. Yes, they got a few calls wrong but none were game changing.

Easy to be intimated down there with Gallen and Co. coming at you all night. But they stood up to him well and got most things correct.

credit to Gavin Morris.

In the last couple of years I literally thought the game was being rigged by the refs. The least I can say for them is that this year I don't feel that way anymore, more that it's just incompetence.

tell me about it, for example i got the feeling in SOO II 2013 they wanted it to go to game 3. It would have gone there anyway cause NSW played so poorly, but the refs really helped it along in the first 10-15minutes.

These days i can see they're trying but they're simply s***... Wouldnt mind the bunker idea implemented to have some more consistency with video ref decisions.

I always had questions when we went to 2 referees

The more officials you have the more they can influence results

Last night I thought the Sharks got the rough end of the pineapple , barring the forward pass from Gallen leading to Gordon's try

as a lover of rugby league I cant believe how refs are killing our game .when 2 refs were named I was one who thought it would help the game what a load of rubbish the game is going backwards the refs are killing it.

Eh we were both guilty of it. If anything the Sharks were doing it just because we were getting away with it and were finding it tougher than us.

Actually the wrestling ability is something I've seen improvement in. We're slowing down the ruck and getting away with it.

I thought the referring was good.

I thought both Wade Graham and Gallen were cry babies and needed to pull their heads in.
Shame.
