    I know touch judges cop a lot of flak in regards to their ability to do their job properly, also on many occasions it has been said "why do we need them in our game" but tonight we as supporters of this great sport, must give credit where it's due and acknowledge the fantastic call that went against Melbourne! All I can say is "its about %$&*@! time", well done touchie! Please everyone stand up as one and cheer the touchies..... WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO.......

    I couldn't believe they didn't over rule it. That was the first thing that came to mind after I saw the replay....

    LOL as much as I hate Storm, I can't rejoice.. That call just reminded me of how shit these guys really are, clearly he got it wrong but no-one overruled his decision... Why bother taking it to the bunker?

    The touchie and the bunker need to be examined and probably dropped for making such a deliberately bad call

    With "mistakes" like that it's no wonder more and more fans are waking up to this rigged betting product.

    Loved the News Limited headlines .... not biased of course. You would think the bunker denied them a match winning try the way they described it.

    The NRL amateur hour. Clueless bunch of dopes. Pride is killing this once great game. I honestly thank God they brought in the bunker as it clearly demonstrates how stupid the powers that be are. It pushes the officials into a corner and try to bumble their way out. Just like a classic sci film where they create a monster that takes over the planet. Dumb dumbs.

    Yeah it was the wrong call, but how is it worse than any other wrong call or penalty given throughout the rest of the game? How many times do we see teams get BS penalties that lead to a try in the next set? Are these less important because it’s not the last couple of mins in the game? Fuck off with that shit

    Because it decides the game. If bad calls are made throughout the game there is a thing called 'time' that allows you to get back in with strategy etc.. With 1 minute to go that convenience is gone.

    Storm denied one more shot, I think everyone north of the border thought so what.
    How the fuck did he come to that?

    Can't not bag the touchie ..... it was an absolute shit call.

    I hate Melbourne like most do ( except for the Mexicans south of the border) but the outrage is magnified ten fold because it was Melbourne.

    I am sure too that I saw the HIA card used ( green free interchange)to replace Brandon Smith before half time with Solomona when the injury the player had was an arm/ shoulder due to a 'chicken wing' tackle for which the Canberra player was penalised and put on report.

    http://websites.sportstg.com/get_file.cgi?id=2770816

    At the start of the season each team will be provided with a set of official interchange cards numbered 1-10 (plus free interchange cards, one red for fouled player and one green for subsequent free interchange) incorporating the team logo. Clubs are to hand the Green card to the interchange official prior to the commencement of the match. d. It will be the responsibility of each Club to have these cards available

    Over by a blade of grass...love the touchie. The last penalty Storm got was bs anyway.

    Yay the little guy team (by comparison to Storm and Rorters). Thank God no GF featuring those 2 smug clubs. Touchie needs a bonus paper bag off Politis lol

    Not a great decision but the storm weren't guaranteed to score.

    The better team won on the night anyway.
