    I'm starting to believe the theory that the NRL are trying as covertly as possible to have Melbourne win the comp this year. They're always getting Saturday night matches (their preference. If we got our way we'd have way more Sunday arvo matches) and getting the majority of calls their way in pretty much all the Storm matches I have seen this year. Dunley and Watmough's penalties were absolute jokes.

    However, that doesn't excuse some of our **** defence and ball handling tonight. Crocker's try was a joke. Whoever missed those three tackles that led to massive linebreaks about halfway through the 2nd half should be taken out back and shot. I'm thinking it could have been the one suspect as well as they were all essentially in the same position along our defensive line.

    is that the best the storm can do, a couple of calls and we win, and what the go when Robbo made that break down the left wing and he was held down for an eternity, we got the penalty but isnt thet what the bin is for

    Matai was very lucky to get his try though.

    You have to wonder why the dwarf was going around the legs that close to the line. I think Menzies had a thing or two to say about it as well.

    That was a try, surely something hit the ground.

    Matai played well tonight, made ground every touch and no real clangers.

    Outplayed Inglis in my opinion.

    yet no comment on ingis' effort

    matai looked as though he hit the ground, ingil looked lucky to get within 10cm

    whos team are you on? - honestly

    Tooves - although simpkins was crap the worst calls were from the linesman

    His try was as obviouse as inglis try. In my opinion they both got them down.

    I would have to say sitting down watching the game last night my girlfriend commented. How come, in a year that the NRL is doing the big push to have melbourne become popular in victoria, do they conveniently take out the jj gilman shield after a season of getting away with murder in the play the ball all year.

    You gotta wonder don't you. A ref has a lot of control over the way a game goes. Giving an extra second to hold down the play the ball works out close to a full 5 mins of extra hold down. Thats a lot less work to do. And the piss weak excuses for a piggy back down field. Well, don't let me get started. Lets just say i've seen quite a few melbourne games this year and we wern't the first to be hit with some dodgy calls.
