    Because we got shafted by corrupt officials and couldn't finish our chances as usual

    didn't think the ref was that bad really. thought every difficult decision he had to make he got right.

    not quite sure what changed in the second half, but we just sat back and let them come at us. Obviously he needs some time, but Wes seemed a bit invisible. hope that changes in the next few weeks.

    there was a penalty in the 2nd round that he not only didnt call but somehow called as a freekick against us, this made more frustrating cause it was equally as much of a penalty as last weeks against us. There were also a handful of times where he just didnt call obvious fouls, at another point called a foul commited on us the other way.

    But even still it shouldn't be a conversation of a ref ****ing it up for us, we took it to em and looked great in the 1st half and as you said something changed and we came out 2nd half looking flat.

    There was one instance in the 2nd half where we had a free kick and a VARtree player went and stood over the spot and from a yard away stuck out s foot to block us restarting play

    As clear as day a Yellow as you will see.

    The ref didn't even see it that was how bad he was

    They done the same in the first half and stood over the spot intentionally not allowing us to take a free kick and received no sanction

    Blatant incompetence from the official


    The penalty no call was also typical HAL
    If that was a Jets defender and a VARtree attacker it would have been a penalty every time

    We are shit at both ends of the park and cost ourselves but FMD we don't need officials making life harder for us than we do already

    To say it levels out over the course of the season well we gonna be owed a lot over the next few weeks to get even close

    Ref was horrible. VARtree players were constantly holding us and shirt pulling and the ref wasn't even remotely concerned about it. As soon as we did it , he'd award VARtree a free kick.
    When the ball struck the Ref it was completely his fault because he cut off our best passing option. Had he have stepped back he would only have been struck by a defensive pass more so than a genuine goal scoring opportunity.
    The penalty we were denied would have been given every time were it against one of our defenders as well.

    So when you add all these little things up it makes a big difference to results.

    Shitney FC's record in Asia when the refs don't care who they are is a prime example of how much influence refs have in the A-league. If those same Refs were in the A-league SFC would not be anywhere near where they are on the ladder.

    Sydney would be still up at the top end without the ref help

    The problem is they also have a significant advantage in Salary Cap set up which favours them over all other clubs bar VARtree

    The refs help they get is a joke because they already have a stacked squad in their favour and are well organised already so the assistance they get from the officials is just not needed with all the other assistance they have


    Without the refs help they wouldn't be in front by as much


    What must also be said is that Sydney's reign at the top the last 4 / 5 years has actually seen the competition deteriorate. If anything the HAL doesn't need them to be successful as they offer little of value to the comps general health and well being

    BTW, what was the ref doing that he couldn't see a Tard player deliberately pinning one of our defenders down by wrapping his legs around him while the Tards were attacking, stopping him from getting up?
    Life isn't the same without Con... but it can only improve without Tinks...
