Firstly I would like to state that I am willing to accept that people make mistakes and under normal circumstances we need to trust that the people in charge have the best interests of the game and players top of mind when officiating and appointing certain people with that responsibility. So here are my concerns; 1. Why was Shayne Hayne appointed to the most important game of the year when it was under, his particular, control during the past 2 years that one team playing in the grand final appears to have received what could only be described as the rough end of the pineapple on more times than not? And that team is Manly! result controversy again surrounding his performance???? 2. This is particularly the case following on from the game at Bluetongue between South Sydney and Manly in round 23 Hayne was at the centre of what could only be described as a below par performance seemingly assisting one team with 3 times as manly penalties ensuring they were helped out of their red zone on no less than 4 occasions? 3. During the last 2 years it is obvious that Hayne has had problems dealing with Manly players in particular Keiran Foran, "Shayne Hayne to Keiran Foran: "Go away, I've had a gutful of you. You've only been around for five minutes." 4. In a grand final the game should be between players and they alone should decide which team wins not the referee. In this case Hayne in particular appears to have taken it upon himself to be the centre of attention for the wrong reasons. In summary we have heard nothing all week from the referees boss about the controversy that surrounds the game on Sunday. Social media is alive with supporters of other teams that normally dislike Manly intensely coming out and stating in their minds Manly were hard done by in the game and again in particular by one referee Shayne Hayne. Quote Doug Graves said | October 6th 2013 @ 11:38pm | Report comment I despise both these teams, always have and always will, but yet again referee incompetence has heavily influenced the outcome and brought the game into disrepute. I don’t know what is going on with the refs and their training but the standard of reffing is regressing to a point where the games are in most cases painful to watch and in some cases unwatchable due to the amount of clangers they come up with. If Dave Smith does one good thing in his tenure he must fix the reffing, if not for the good of the game then to prevent himself from looking like a wood duck with his clownish apologies to robbed sides. Good one Shayne said | 10:17am | Report comment Watching the game on replay is even worse. Shayne Hayne was ridiculous. The refer. Frustration. 1. Mitchell Pearce – knock on 3rd minute. Should have been Possession 15 meters out 2. Mitchell Pearce with hand in play the ball of Keiran Foran after Manly try. Should have been a penalty 3. 27th Penalty Jamie Buhrer raked out. Dropped ball Luke O’Donnell. Should have been Manly ball 15 meters out in attacking position. 4. 31st Minute – headbut on Justin Horo. Should have been penalty to Manly. Hand in the play the ball penalty. JWH dropped it cold. At what point was there a hand in there. Cost manly 2 points at 6-6. Shayne Hayne. Too long in the tackle. Bull**** was 3 seconds 5. 34th minute Contact on Mitchell Pearce – tackle on legs. He was in the air. Roosters attacking 10 meters out. 5 minutes before halftime, 6. 39th minute – Came off Jennings should have been Manly feed. Jaime Lyon should have had ball. 7. 43rd Aubbeson tackled Lyon without the ball. Should have been penalty win sinbin, Lyon was taken out. 8. 51st Cherry Evans kick and late tackle by Jake Friend should have been a penalty. 9. 57th minute JWH gets up and body slams Tom Symonds second effort after tackle. Penalty every day of the week in any other game. 10. 61st Moloney’s pass to Mini was forward. Should have been no try. 11. 69th Friend came in high on DCE when already tackled. Dirty 12.70th Lyon was taken out by Jennings. 13. Wolfman ingoal Moloney clearly pulls his hair, video ref and the rest of the world see it? Nothing from refs??? With all of this we have heard not one single word from Anderson???? The Chairman the commission board and the CEO need to come out and give the Rugby League supporting public some sort of answers! Or it could do what is has been doing all year and keeps its collective head buried deep in the sand! Steve McLean RL player until 34 supporter 48 years Let's see if they bother?????
