    Lyon was pushing the limits with his call - "It's like your trying to get them back in the game" to the ref
    But he said what I was thinking....
    They were constantly offside & always laying on the player, throwing 5-6 ridiculous forward passes & 1 time...Burgess tackled- momentum stopped,....stands up & passes the ball ???? Play on ????
    We got lucky with the No Try call ...but the rest....obvious calls that I agree ...were in Souths favour big time.

    Poor, poor reffing! And that burgess try wasn't a try, a ball does not bounce a meter if it has been placed securely on the ground in contact with the players hand.

    There was three kants onthefield tonight, and only the touch judge got a pass mark.

    What annoyed me was the selective intrusion of the video ref. He ignored several strips of the ball, then radioed-in when Souffs' winger dropped the ball. Yes it was a strip - but either you do it for every wrong call or you stay out of it.

    Loved that remark can't believe commentators were blowing up about it when they all remain quiet with Cam Smith basically doing the same thing every week

    You cannot be serious. The touch judges missed at least 4 foward passes.

    Killer didn't accuse the Ref, he merely made an observation that the Ref's rulings were like... :think:

    Bozo would be pleased :)

    I figured the NRL has decided to allow NFL style passes in an effort to suck up to get Hayne back.

    As I said last week the refs will be a farce. It's just good to see that we've become a team that can win in spite of that sort of adversity.

    Agree with everything except the 'no try' - it wasn't a try. While they don't require proper downward pressure anymore, the wording is something like 'maintain control' - and there's no way Burgess had any control over where that ball was, he was desperately scrabbling to keep a finger or two in contact with it as it slid away from his hand. If that was a try, Myles didn't knock the ball on a couple of minutes later either - he had the same level of finger contact on the ball the whole time as Joe Burgess did.

    Reading the RLW review of the match, they mentioned they would be surprised if the MRC didn't get involved with Killer's comments. Surely not.

    It was really obvious from the side on view that he lost it. I couldn't understand the outrage of the commentators at all.

    He is very lucky he didn't get binned Refereeing was rubbish but when was the last time a decision was changed. You never ever question their integrity.Complain about a decision but to suggest it was a plan to get Souths back in the game is crazy.

    Absolute waste of time .Get back and get on with it. Smith gets away with the same stuff and it annoys the hell out of me.

    Every chance he will be charged in my opinion as he has reputation for it. Will be an absolute shame if our momentum is killed by this.

    Challenging the ref is trademarked by Bozo. Kevin Walters was sent off during a club game during a English tour for telling the ref what the penalty count was when he went back in after half time.

    I just don't know if it works in today's day and age. Does it just get the ref off side. You would want to pick your mark.

    Cam Smith butters the ref up. Stirs all the players up. When's the last time Melbourne got screwed by the refs.

    He said that?? Hahaha he's right... good on him I didn't hear because I couldn't hear anyone but me!! The most sh*tbag refereeing effort of the year. They lost the f*cking plot.
    I actually think the on field refs have improved this year and the bunker is marginally better than last year but tonight was f*cking borderline dodgy !!

    Come on Maxta, you know the deal ;-)
    Its all about the spectacle. An evenly contested, exciting game/TV product that comes at the expense of the rules. Bias is king in this comp, the refs facilitate that. This is the NRL

    (it annoys the crap out of me too)

    He will get some kind of suspension, one for being a Manly player and two for whatever rule they can dream up and find. He was right though they were given every leg up possible. We were getting too much ball and too much go our way for them not to start finding penalties.

    Two refs is no better than one, half the time I can't even see why someone was penalised. I mean I know what the signal is for but most of the time it is marginal and really just a subjective call. Go back to one ref and stop penalising every bit of rubbish that can be imagined
