Can anyone explain how Robinson managed to get away with the head high late shot on the Catalans player ? Two saints players recently received bans for the same thing.

Maybe because he did not hit the guy with a head high shot at all? From the TV reply he tackled the guy across the chest without the ball.

I didn't even think it was a sin bin never mind red. Robinson took a much worse shot earlier in the game.

4 posts deleted, 1 main and 3 others quoting it.

 

It is a long established policy of this forum that we WILL NOT accept people calling referees "bent" or any other similar term implying dishonesty.  You can question their competence all day long if you so desire but you cannot question their honesty.  If you want to rant about referee honesty then go elsewhere.

 

Infringements to that policy will see you get either a suspension from the forum or an outright ban depending on your past conduct.

Alright

The refs were downright incompetent from start to finish for reasons I stated earlier and heavily in the favour of the home team

The second part of this statement pretty much ignores Craig's warning

No it doesn't, it totally complies with the acceptable questioning

It does seem to be implying dishonesty

There are two ways to read that:

 

Meaning 1:  The ref was rubbish and coincidentally all his rubbish decisions were against the away team.

Meaning 2:  The ref was rubbish and he was influenced by the home team/crowd into making decisions against the away team

Meaning 3:  The ref was rubbish and he was also heavily in favour of the home ream.

 

Meaning 1 is acceptable but would need a detailed explanation to justify.

Meaning 2 has a far higher burden of proof and would most likely get binned

Meaning 3 is only acceptable if you have indisputable proof that you can get John Drake to accept before you post it.
