    It really gets me when a coach can blame a decision at the end of the match as a defining moment and as to why they lost. There are plenty of errors and 50/50 calls which mould the result before you get to the 75th minute.
    Easts got more than fair share of the 50/50's, especially the last couple of ball strips which gave them the chance to go upfield and try to win the game.
    I wonder if Ricky Stuart blamed the bunker & touch judge for their loss or did he blame Frank Paul No-commonsene

      It puts the coach back in control. They are just shifting attention from the players to the officials.

        What was The Rorter's coach's view on the forward pass that Mitchell threw in the lead up to their last try ?


        No mention of that Trent ? Just going to ignore that one you dumbass ? Pull your head out of your arse. Your side won the penalties 9-4 and got more than their share of dubious calls.

            I have no issue with whinging if a dud call costs you a game at the death. It is hard when that happens. However last night was hardly a howler, it was a 50/50 call and they also had all the 50/50 calls go their way all night.

              No he doesn't. This pales compared to that blatant biased match fixing episode. All because Greenprick and Polintheass promised $BW a premiership to keep him which he proceeded to dump on them and leave anyway. Eat a bag of diks Robitusin.

                  2 50/50 calls and they got 1/2 and still crying.

                  I guess years of rorting change your view on reality

                  Watched the Latrell Mitchell forward pass try, frame by frame. His feet are 13 metres out when he passes, and the ball lands 11 metres out and then bounces several metres further forward. Now it is possible, when running, for a legal backward pass to float forward - even more than that. That's just momentum. Problem was that Mitchell had been jinking around the 12-13 metre mark for a couple of seconds, so had little forward momentum when passing.

                  The proof of the puddling was that Mitchell was so annoyed at himself for stuffing up the pass that he first looked up at the sky (not at the play), threw his arms up and then down in sheer annoyance at himself, and then turned away while the try was being scored. He didn't even watch the supposed "try" being scored because he knew it would be called back for the forward pass.
