That 50 against ginivan was obscene...insane..putrid..pathetic ..not my opinion but an a facf..you have no love for footy if you tbink that *smile* is ok
The whole Ginnivan thing just shows how much it stinks.
They actually admitted they were going to umpire him differently to other players. Then realised how sick that was and changed back but not too much, just a PR cover up exercise.
It s like our free kick differential. An approximate average of - 60 per season over the past six or so seasons is nothing but a bias.
The bias previously did not usually occur in finals which is why our free kick bias generally in finals did not happen. No longer.
Its becoming so obvious that I watch a game and am automatically thinking of who is favoured by the officiating.
Thats not why I watch sport.
I watch for the unpredictability, the freakish skills, the unlucky bounces.
Remember when officials had a good game if they were not noticed. Doesnt happen often now.
I have watched us be beaten by Sydney when the 50 should have been paid against Sydney for a kick out of the ground.
I have watched a winning goal to Lynch overturned on no clear evidence to the contrary. (just an aside that the review was introduced to stop obvious blunders like the Hawkins and Liberatore mistakes in finals, not overturn goal umpire soft calls)
I have watched the Rugby the other night when a penalty to Australia meant we would win the game and was then reversed.
I have watched the rugby league when there were about six players sin binned in one game.
I have watched Papley push with two hands in the back to mark and kick the winning goal.
Sorry but I am really losing interest in watching sport.
Its just become another sick example of the fix being in and the result influenced by officials.
