    These apparent refs couldn't even get this decision right. Love how most on here think thats ok. Couldn't handle all-age these knobs.

    Go back and have a look at the assistant looking into the sun, and that's on the far side of the field to where they are looking through a number of players. Put yourself in their shoes.

    You might not accept it but you can see how doubt creeps in. And if there's doubt, the mandate is to defer to VAR.

    Look at the Liverpool game this morning. Exact same scenario. Assistant did the exact same thing from a reaponse and this time VAR said it was in.

    When the goal was given, Scott was absolutely incensed and ran over screaming to the assistant.

    I daresay she made a comment that she thinks the ball was out, because after running over to her, he was quickly appeased and they set up for a goal kick.

    I think she did her job.


    What I don’t like in this situation: I think she should give the ‘soft decision’ and flag and say she thinks the ball was out and make VAR prover her wrong to give the goal. I guess they have been told to give benefit to the attack.
    And she was not in a position to definitively say.

    Calling the referee the "diversity ref" isn't ok. The gender of a referee doesn't and shouldn't matter - Casey Reibelt is a professional referee in her own right who has completed the course to achieve such a level. In fact I see that have female referee in the center at the highest levels of the game for both men and women is something that should be celebrated and set our game apart from others.

    More broadly to all on this forum, not JM specifically, it's been called out on this forum before that this is not a friendly place for women, and it's time we do it again. Many of know each other, but a lot of us don't know who each other are. No matter who we are, the Jets should be what united us and bring us here regardless of gender or anything else. We should all be better.

    As for commentary - couldn't agree more. It's as if there isn't an attempt to hide the clear bias in commentary to the big city teams. The Jets men didn't win that match....WU lost it.
    Hear hear.
    Foz needs a ?like? function.

    I'm confused, are you saying that they got this call wrong? Because the referees called this as out, which I agree with. If you think it was in, that's fine. I just want to clarify why you're unhappy with the decision.

    I can only assume people are unhappy with the ref because she sits down to pee. I just think people should try it out before they write it off so quickly, sometimes a nice sit down wee is a great way to reset. Especially in the heat when you can get some air down there and cool your giblets before carrying on with your day.

    That's very feminine of you and hardly a surprise but you don't need to share that much.


    The diversity hire referees were terrible

    Stop offering excuses

    That shouldn't have went to VAR

    You would expect all age officials to get that call right

    If these diversity hires are only there to satisfy a quota then it is another blight on the game. Their position is about competence and it should be the most capable at the role.

    The diversity hires proved they were out of their depth

    I love how you still don't know what VAR is and how it's used, completely on point for you.

    Im amused you had a choice to take on the message of Jeterpool’s comment, Foz guidelines and generally speaking not be an obnoxious, sexist, disrespectful dinosaur, and went right ahead and ignored it.

    Wouldn't it be nice if the mods explained the banning of someone, so that the rest of us may avoid offending them and their associates in the future

    sexist nonsense, worse than the rest of the crap spouted in this thread

    and it wasn't me being offended that led to this ban, it was the multiple reports on the post

    we mods and admins rarely bother with this forum anymore now that it's gone to shit

    Thanks boz, I see your point of view. My take on it was, if political parties and big companies have female quotas to fill, some might think that FA is going down that path. As for the forum, I think it is more diverse than it's ever been, if you know what I mean

    I'm still not at ease with how this has played out, the original complaint wasn't against the member, several people made the same comment but he got banned. There were multiple complaints but from who? In the interest of an open and honest forum, and considering it caused a banning of a long time member, who made the complaints

    What’s difficult to understand?

    There were a few comments made regarding the female referee, making the errors because she was a female. More comments about it being diversity hire.
    Jeterpool, called the comments out, in a very respectful and polite manner with an aim to educate and perhaps make people aware how their comments may be portrayed, even if they were not intended that way.

    Then immediately after, MFKS continued to use the phrases that were specifically called out and then added a little bit of member for good measure.

    Rule number 1 is be respectful. JP respectfully asked that terms not be used and urged us all to be more mindful of our comments and MFKS was deliberately antagonising.

    It doesn’t matter who reported it. I wish I did. But what does it matter if I did?

    This place used to be a bunch of supporters of the jets to have like minded conversation and banter and chat football.
    We give rugby league a fair bit of shit, but you head on over to their forum…every thread is full of respectful conversation, no arguments or anybody deliberately antagonising people.

    I was equally amazed. Funnily enough, there was more chat on there about Matilda’s WC than on here. Quite a big interest in the Women’s NRL team and competition too.

    A friendly warning and a week off would have been ample. It's like sending someone to the electric chair for a parking infringement, that's all I'll say, carry on
