refs aren’t deciding games
panthers kept giving away penalties, teams were warned before the game, wallace was warned multiple times too.
saying that, the penalty to sin bin was soft.
teams need to fix their discipline and im with the nrl in this that short term pain for hopefully long term gain.
you go back on this now, then teams like melb start wrestling in the ruck again, 10m become 6m, dodgy play the balls become a norm.
nrl has tried to fix this and i wish the commentators would stop bringing this up and support instead of always criticising, they just fuel everyone more and more. just shut up and commentate, dont give your opinions and influence others about refs all the time please.
but that was a wrong decision at the wrong time.
do you disagree with the rest or just one statement?
There was talk about foot on the ball in the ptb… I’m still seeing balls rolled under feet.
I find myself studying markers since last week… As you know they’re never square… There’s no consistency… They’re trying to make a perfect game but they never will… Players will always push the boundaries… It’s not chess or snooker but it seems that’s what they’re striving for
so what’s the solution?
dont give a penalty for 8m but give a penalty for 7m? you just know that 8m will be pushed each time too
they are trying to be consistent but they can’t. the refs receive no support coz one idiot makes a big mistake like last weekend.
and these “commentators” worry less about calling the game than giving opinions, giving their predictions and influencing the public’s opinion which leads to outrage.
the people running the game might be idiots but not every little thing needs to be nit picked.
