Don't very often post on here but really feel I have to today.

 

As gutted as the next fan tonight to lose in that way but was more disappointed with the behaviour of some of our 'fans' at the end of the game. The abuse they hurled at the Barrow players was truly disgusting, I really hope the cameras didn't pick up on it as it reflects badly on the club. It wasn't the Barrow players who disallowed the tries, made the dodgy decisions & missed the offsides, it was the man in green and his pals.

 

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but we should all remember, when we wear the Knights colours, whether on or off the pitch,we are representing the club.

I for one was embarrassed to be wearing my Knights shirt tonight leaving the ground and it wasn't because of what happened on the pitch but because of those so called fans and their disgusting behaviour.

Just one comment and that is we either have the video ref at every game at our level,televised or not,or we don't bother with it.

We played some dumb rugby tonight we should have had it sewn up by halftime, we just didn't look fit in the last 20 mins we looked dead on our feet, it said on the radiol Brown could miss the rest of the season poor game all round for us tonight.

i honestly thoght it was a really good game tonight. well done barrow for never being offside.don't know about the video ref calls but most of them suggested by their formation  that they were no trys including the one for barrow when all 26 players lined up for the next tackle. no one was more surprised than the barrow players! the offside at the end may well have been but i would love to see how many times browny was closed down fom an offside position

What was all this business in front of the Stabler Stand, After walking all the way round because the side gate is no longer open we get turned round and not allowed to walk in front of the camera gantry because the game had started. apparently Health & Safety!! Well what was different before Kick off, and at Half Time and at the end?? Got to remember not everyone can arrive "early" for various reasons such as work etc. Got to say I agree the whole thing was just a farce, I'll have to see in future if its a bit of a rush in future I think I'll stay at home and not bother  By the way there was no scaffolding over the walkway.

 

Secondly what rule book was the ref using tonight? do we use the new "free play" rule in this league, (yes i have seen it used in previous weeks), also why did he not go to the video when Barrow scored after the ball came out in the tackle? Both teams were "offside" all night so why wait till the death to pull us up?

 

Gone home very frustrated tonight, after watching York RL in its various guises for nearly 60 years I just wonder where we are going and after tonight's farce both on and off the pitch I can understand why people say why bother.

Can you tell us about the Video Ref calls.

The try he give to you guys to me looked like he was held up and on any of the 4 try's we had disallowed?

The ref was not as bad as you are making out.

More penalties should of been blown for lying on for both sides, he didn't blow the majority of the time so at least he was consistent.

The video ref calls could of gone either way they were 50/50 which you can't really blame the ref for. If there was not a video ref York would of probably won the game, but I don't think that's relevant.

The penalty at the end had to be blown, York players were 2 yards ahead of the ref. It was a brave decision by Leatherbarrow. He made mistakes for both sides and even assisted York with a try, purely accidental of course but I really don't think Leatherbarrow had much impact on the scoreline.

At the end of the day it was a great game to watch. There

was only one score in it at all times. Both sides were evenly matched, York could of one just as easy as Barrow did. A draw would of been fair but I would not of blamed the Ref if barrow had lost.

I think that the most disturbing thing about tonight's game was the fact that on seven occasions the referee could not be sure of what he saw in front of him and had to use a TV replay.

So, what does he do next week when there are no TV cameras and he's not sure ?  Yes, he guesses !!

Second half, you could see York kept looking over to the ambulance. Harsh thought to have in your head when you're trying to do a job. Looks like Briscoe will be out for the rest of the season too.

Cracking game though, really entertaining, despite the poo result. Would like to see the game on the telly to make my own mind up on the decisions.

As for the behaviour at the end. Gloating is effectively enticement, and there was plenty on and off the pitch.

Still, I brought 3 who had never seen a rugby league match before and they loved it, all will be back - so that's a result in itself.

I think its even more disturbing when the video ref doesn't have enough relevant camera angles to make a confident call either way, the 2 Batley conversions given in our tv game were later ruled to have missed. How he could make a call on a few of those decisions tonight with what he had to go by heads or tails comes to mind, when jobs are on the line just not good enough.

Visiting here only but could not let this post pass by without commenting, moan, whinge, wine, bejebus, this was a cracking match, end to end stuff, it had everything, dramatic calls, trys, excitement, drama, 2 committed teams going for it, etc. 

 

This person was put out by some extra walking, did not pass the way they wanted too and now suggests not attending future games because of it, hello, the world does not revolve around you........get a grip please.

Even worse, the referee was actually standing more or less under the posts on the disallowed drop goal !!

 

For what it's worth, watching through these "neutral" eyes on some of those video decisions, Wiper was (momentarily) held up on that Barrow try in the corner; there was no off-side on the Brown kick for the try in the second-half (although I don't think it was grounded anyway); Freer did knock on by the sticks at 24-24 ... and the Barrow drop goal did go over.

 

It did come across as a good game on the box though ... and the result just adds to the intrigue and unpredictability in the bottom half of the table ...
