    I think they should have stoooed play to allow raiders to realise what had happened since it was the reffs stuff up. They only marched down the other end because raiders had no idea what was going on and were not able to organise

    I reckon that most times this season when a player has been sin binned that team goes on to score a try or at least playes the better footy. 2 of the roosters trys were only scored due to unusual circumstances which put them at a disadvantage and caught them off guard if those 2 tries don't happen rorters don't even look like winning

    I'd need to go back and watch all of that section of the game again, but from what I saw the Roosters were able to make the break because Leilua's tackle on Cordner was around the legs and he didn't have a chance to make it to marker. He compounded that by jogging back really slowly which gave the Roosters the over lap.

    Having said all that, my personal opinion is the Raiders were dudded throughout the game and the Roosters seem to score a disproprtionately large number of 'lucky calls' on a regular basis.

    People should also go and have a look at their win rate under Gerard Sutton. It's very 'odd' to say the least.

    It's pretty harsh to blame Joey when you consider Tapine let the first try in, and gave away three early penalties

    So true. To win you have to legally cheat. And who are the 2 best teams at doing that. Why shock horror its the Rooters and Storm

    He did say is “is it 6 again?” but moronically waved his arm to signal before he got the call to say no. He should have kept his hand down waited for the call. It is entirely his fault, anyone that’s played knows that once they saw the arm signal the Raiders players would not even paid any attention to referee, they would have been zoned in and focused on the upcoming set.

    We should also remember the bulldogs losing rate under sutton. Round 1 2016 was our last victory under him. Since then 18 straight losses. Sequences of wins or losses under the same referee should not have that sort of disparity. And i am a former junior league referee.

    "if those 2 tries don't happen rorters don't even look like winning" - except that they did happen. That's the whole point of Gibson's sage advice.

    I think the players went into the game thinking what most fans felt was going to happen, that's what caught them off guard which gave the Roosters the advantage.... otherwise the Roosters never looked like scoring! At the end though, it was like a rigged boxing match, boxer A was smaching boxer B, boxer B lasts till the 12th round, the judges give the win to boxer B!

    I watched the replay yesterday of 2004 and man didn't we get the bad calls in that game, luckily we had a great side that just played too well.

    Was it Cummins that fucked us over on Good Friday last year when he didn't allow Jackson to get back. Remember the play, not certain of offical though

    We were lucky when the Roosters were penalised for running behind a player when they scored before half time. I expected them to get the usual referee call of fair try - but we got the penalty.

    Go back to the GF win against Manly, and see where we were awarded a try on the seventh tackle. Nobody realised we had an extra tackle until well after the game- not the Dogs, not Manly. The media was full of it the next day, and didn't Bob Fulton blow up! You'll also see we were denied a fair try- the commentators couldn't believe it was not awarded. Manly were well and truly out of the game, yet their fans reckon the seven tackle try "robbed" them.
    Go back further to our win against Balmain at the brand new SFS, where Terry Lamb took out Hanley with a deliberate head high tackle. It was payback for the way Hanley took out our fullback. Baa should have been sent off, yet the referee saw it as OK, and not even a penalty. So we can't always say the refs are against us.
    I've always seen those incidents as balancing the bad calls we'd copped all year.

    Thats right. They can't afford, and wouldn't dare upset that much influence or money involved in the game.
