Interesting Referee Stats

Just found this googling. Apologies if anyone else has seen or posted previously.

I can’t comment on it’s accuracy or otherwise, just found it……

Watched the last 60 minutes on TV, thought it was appalling refereeing. Hardly penalised Bulldogs for off-side, we copped 5 or 6, some very marginal. Their holding down seemed to go unpunished whilst we got pinned. And when we made the break near the end (when Marsters missed the penalty), why on earth wasn’t it a sin-bin for professional foul? No advantage to us getting a penalty when we probably would of scored a try.

Yep, it was an interesting refereeing spectacle.

Too many refs on the field. Only need one and the booth.
Give the touchies some more input.
I hate the 2 ref system. I even seen the 2nd ref like wtf and not understanding what the other ref was blowing it for.

Its killing the games flow.

Looks to me like the 2 x ref ‘‘éxperiment’’ is failing. I’d rather go back to the 1 ref and 2 x touchies. That way 1 person is responsible and has the help of video ref when needed. The 2nd one on the field is only diluting an already weak roster of qualified officials.

This surely cant go on. How long before a club takes the NRL and refs to court citing unfair treatment causing loss of competition points and income from lost opportunties? Video evidence would be easy to come by, particularly for some of the one-sided refereeing displays.

Edit- imagine, in a court of law, a referee justifying why they blew a penalty for x and not awarding a penalty for y, when it is exactly the same thing. Then imagine the referee’s boss and then the NRL boss having to back them with commonsense reasoning or face a potential court judgement for the plaintiff against the NRL, the referee’s and individual referee for negligence or denial of natural fairness / justice.

Is there a way to bring attention to this? Not meaning to be One-eyed but Wests (along with some other supposed ‘bottom’ teams) always seem to get the raw deal.

Do we start a petition? Send emails? I’m sure if the NRL recognise the punters are aware of the favouritism they may just do something, or at least it may subconsciously keep the refs honest…

Now that we have the bunker one ref should be plenty

Having two sucks when one calls play on and the other one overrules them with the wrong call

When I watch the Tigers play nearly every time the ref penalises us I think “what the hell was that for?” After the TV replay I still think that the penalty was a bit harsh and the other mob are getting away with worse.

Yet when I watch games between two other teams the penalty has to be an absolute howler for me to raise any kind of concern.

I think they call it a passionate bias.

Perenara was atrocious - even Johns was commenting nearly at the end of the match how our team got pinged for being inside the 10 when we are hardly inside it. It’s as if he was insinuating that the ref was looking to penalise us whenever he can. I’m not sure if anyone heard Johns’ comments.

Having two refs just multiplies the errors. That referring display on weekend had me shaking my head……they miss two metre forward pass that puts man in gap and penalise is for a legs tackle…both the penalties that they got 2pts for were marginal calls

Mate I’m the same. I ask my friends - is it me or are the refs against us?? I really don’t know. But it does seem that every week our opposition get the run of the green refs wise. BUT LAST WEEK IT WAS BALL CONTROL - not refs

Heard this too

Henry Perenara is suss. I have massive questions marks on his integrity

Refs were struggling to measure 10 metres in the second half they were standing 12 metres back when we were defending. Thought the ground markings might help, but apparently not.

Referees have immunity under the law for bad calls.

You’d never have anyone putting their hand up to be a referee.

The only thing that might stand is if there is gross negligence resulting in physical injury or match-fixing of course.
