Too much complaining?
Is it just me, or does there seem to be a lot of complaining coming from the six underperforming teams?
I understand that it can be frustrating to be this far into the season and still have a win percentage under 50%, but all i hear from coaches, fans and players is a lot of excuses and no owning up to what they're doing wrong?
Blaming refs is my big gripe. Sure, they suck most of the time, but you'd be hard pressed to find a ref who is always going to satisfy every person from every team. someone will always complain about a call.
My biggest gripe is players not taking responsibility for their own actions. Dont be undisciplined on the court and then blame "bias" refs when the calls dont go your way (im looking at you Tigers)
The only way things like this will get solved is if teams start taking responsibility for what they're doing wrong. Instead of Anstey blaming the refs for calling a tech when the rules clearly state a tech is to be called, how about teaching your players to be smart when they get into a situation like that, or hold their tongue, instead of complaining about the rules and the umpires!
PS: i know every team does it to some extent, the tigers were the first that came to mind given their reaction to their performance in the two games against perth
