ELPwhatever; remember games last 80 minutes, it's no good saying 'we were 32-14 up' and then... that Fev 'let' Batley back is their fault, but Batley, back to a bit of form, played for the whole 80, and if they're keen enough to do that, give them credit. Think back how many teams last year were beaten at the death by us due to playing the whole 80. And, on the original topic about refs, there isn't a good one amongst them, not one who will make a decision for himself without passing it on to the video ref for him to get it wrong, forward passes are par for the course, knock-ons given when the ball clearly goes backwards or the guy who drops it is facing his own posts, reluctance to show red cards, taking the easy way out by going on report, which, if a guilty decision comes out, benefits the next opponents instead of the team against whom the player is playing when he commits the offence etc etc etc. What passes between the assessors, the RFL and their officials? It appears that they are either blind when watching, or think that the ref's performance is acceptable and are unwilling/unable to take any sort of corrective action.

 

 

And yet how many times have we watched a game again on video only to find out that the ref was right all along?

 

Fans believe that their eyesight, perception and lack of bias is perfect, when sadly it never is.

wouldn't be a ref for any amount of money as they can never get it right all the time. all fans regardless of which team they follow will only pick up on any decision that goes against their team. we are all guilty of watching games expecting everything to go in our favour thought the young lad made mistakes but he made them for both sides. very pleased with recent performances from the dogs, determination coupled with confidence goes a long way. keep up the good work.
