Rub of the green + refs decisions

Post by MacDougall » Fri 08 Jul, 2011 10:03 pm

Now I know we [edited by mods] hard tonight. That was a worthless display. But Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezuz did Parra have it gifted to them.

The Tigers getting called up for non-forward passes. The bounce of the ball off the upright TWICE. Refs missing Hayne's massively forward pass that led to their last try. Balls bouncing away from Tigers outstretched and diving hands right back into Parra hands ALL THE DAMN time...

It was a frustrating watch. I can't believe we lost 20-6. With the amount of luck that went against us and how absolutely poor we were we needed to lose that game by 50. They might actually find positives out of 20-6.

The dominant team, rightly or wrongly usually gets the rub of the green. Problem is, I can't recall the last time we were the dominant team

September 2005, I think.

Even when we dominated the middle part of the game the calls and bounce of the ball was still against us. We probably should have been up 18-6 at half-time but Lui and McKinnon just don't have a clue how to position players for the last pass and the Parra upright must be remote controlled.

I know mate, but it was only the penalties that kept us in the game for the first 25 mins tonight.

Absolutely correct. Referees and luck are the two biggest factors in the NRL atm.

Hayne was given a free reign by WTs the bloke was allowed to do what he wanted with no pressure from our defence, had he been hit hard a few times and made to think twice, it could have gone a good way to upsetting their offence.

the referees run the game ......they answer to nobody ....but wasnt the game over at 8-0.. i listened to 23 minutes of the first half and it sounded like we got 4 piggy backs out of our own 20 .. can we really blame the pink guys in the middle for a lack of crativity for the past month or so ?

Can't blame the refs at all tonight, we got the better of most decisions. Bounce of the ball not going our way at any stage, passes not sticking and severe lack of pace are our real concerns. It's been like this most of the year though, not just tonight.

We had no luck, but we didn't deserve to win. We were giving a clinic in how to bomb tries today.

Beau Ryan had 3 tries before half time if people remembered to pass him the ball.

Mckinnon had a certainty off the upright.

so, four tries, and disallow the try scored off a BLATANT forward pass from Hayne, and that is a potential. THIRTY point turnaround.

Even if none of those tries went unconverted, we still smash them.

It's not as bad as everyone makes out.

Why can't the video ref rule on forward passes, especially if they result in a try? We were pulled up twice for passes that weren't forward, but none of the officials saw Hayne's pass that went metres forward, apparently.

I sought of understand why they cant rule on forward passes, especially some of the close ones the camera angle wouldn't get it right.

We didn't play well enough, the refs weren't to bad.

However I almost chocked when all the officials and the commentators missed that forward pass of Haynes. The 9 team were raving about it.

Luck didn't go our way either but at the end of the day we were not good enough.

If you play well you can afford to be a bit unlucky.
