Gavin Badger

Unread post by marzie » Tue 07 Jul, 2015 8:15 am

I've been saying we don't win when Gavin Badger refs for years but never had the stats to back my claim. I absolutely dread seeing this guy referee our games and fully expect a game full of questionable and some downright ridiculous calls against the Tigers. Example A - last nights game I'm sure you all remember.

This photo says it all really. Bare in mind 1 of the 2 victories was the 1 point win against the Titans in round 1 this year when we just scraped a victory despite a number of poor calls against us.

He's a fool with that hipster beard. Very poor ruck referee.

Surprised me when he ruled "try" on the Naiqama suspect put down, I thought it was reasonably clear he lost control.

So to my eyes, Badge got 95% of the 50/50s wrong, which is bad.

That's the thing, he calls try on Naiqama put down when you could tell he lost control but the Tedesco one he rules no try when it clearly was a fair try.

I've also noticed how he will almost always call the try on the spot for the opposition even when it's a 50/50 call and then will refer tigers tries to the video ref even when it's 100% a try to check for anything to take it away from us

Eels certainly scored their come-back tries off the back of runs of penalties.

Interesting comment from an unbiased source, a SMH reader:
Impartial viewer but if the refs were ever one sided this game was it.No Tedesco try when everyone knew it was a try then penalty after penalty for stripping by the Tigers when at least 75 % of the time it was loose carries.

"Just check for me if Richards starts off in touch before he catches the ball".

Err what? Did anyone else watching think that needed to be checked. Then once checked, did it need to be checked 20 times?

He may as well say "just check everything possible and give it a no try if you find anything"

I turned the TV off when the penalty count against us for the second half was 8 - 2 at the 70 min mark. I believe that the Tigers are not Badgers fav team ,but the rules allow him to make that choice.
In the old game, the onus for ball security was on the ball carrier and if he passed the ball after "held" he was penalised, these days the onus is on the tackler not to touch the ball even though he knows that the carrier is going to try offloading at any time, even after "held" is called because these days he is told to play the ball, no penalty and there is no replay if the ball carrier "drops" the ball in a multi man tackle , Badger blows strip penalty.
The new rules are killing this once great game.
Taking everything into consideration, I think their effort was OK last night , at half time the game was theirs to lose, but any side would have lost with that second half penalty count

Why do you think he gets to ref us every week - the NRL know how incompetent he is and won't let him near a game that might have some bearing on the competition. If that was the rorters or souffs copping that refereeing performance it would all over the back page about incompetent refs.

Check with Todd Greenberg he acknowledged refs are a problem and was going to do so,etching about it :lol: and no use asking Archer as I am told he had the view that the Tigers are ill disciplined.

So the players can see it, fans can see it, why doesn't the NRL do something? And this isn't the first time. Refs have way too much influence over the game and it's getting worse

I wonder how close to wind players are allowed to sail. JT 100% gets a fine if he says that stuff.

We were reffed out of the game. Plain and simple. I don't like bagging refs but that was an absolutely hopeless display.
