I wasn't saying any of that as a Crocs fan, just as a basketball fan. It wasn't a watchable product. There are two separate sets of rules, so when you play in Perth you have to make sure you absolutely kick their butts if you want to win, because a marginal game will generally tip firmly in their favour in terms of the officiating.
Last week the Crocs get their butts kicked by New Zealand. If I was a one eyed fan misguidedly whinging about referees like some of you suggest, I would have complained about Townsville getting beaten because of the officiating then. I didn't. Because they got their butts kicked in a fair game.
If I was a one-eyed fan without a clue, a chorus of neutral supporters wouldn't be singing along with me.
Perth are the best team in the league. They don't need the help they get. If anything, it just tarnishes their winning legacy, so it's not good for anyone, not even Perth.
Whether Perth won last night or not isn't the issue. And they very well could/would have won if the game was called properly. But that's not the point. The point is that was a garbage display of what is supposed to be a sporting contest. I judge the credibility of a game by whether a reasonable, neutral fan would find it fair, and by that measure, that wasn't a fair game.
