Is the reffing really that bad? The Klein call last week aside, has it been any worse than other years? Are the commentators blowing it out of proportion?
The refs are somewhat doing their job, enforcing the rules. When they don’t do it, commentators complain. Now when they do, commentators complain. What the ‘great’ minds of Johns and Gould have not said is how the refs should do their job.
Gould has gone too far. I honestly don’t want to watch the broadcast anymore, not because of the footy (I’ll always watch it) but because 9 have empowered Gould to shoot down other people’s careers. Politics and agendas aren’t interesting. Shut up and call the game.
The nerve of commentators to state over and over that the refereeing isn’t what fans want. If it isn’t what we want then why keep talking about it? I don’t want to continue being reminded that some talking heads don’t like the way the game is being run. How about they focus on the good, not the bad?
