Refereeing in 36ers-Hawks was substandard
I hope Brad Giersch, Brett(the Panda) Hogan and Tim Brown do not accept full payment for their display tonight. If they do there would be grounds for charges to be laid for taking money under false pretences. They allowed Illawarra to scrag, hit and do anything they liked to Randle, which ultimately resulted in what could be a season ending injury.
Tim Brown at one time told Randle to walk away from Weeks while he was being continually man handled. While if anyone looked cross eyed at Kevin Lisch they were called for fouls.
You could not level the inconsistent argument against these three blind mice as they displayed an unabashed bias the whole night. Don't be fooled by the foul count stats, if the game had been called even remotely fairly Illawarra would have been down at least three players by half time.
It is my greatest hope is that these three refs do not officiate in anymore games this season let alone Sixer games.
