It's not even that bad tonight. I think overloaded has money on the game. If bullets lose they have no one to blame but themselves with poor defense this second half.

Lot's of talk about it this year, but I think its just all round bad reffing for all games, for both sides too

I agree in that it doesn't seem as prevalent tonight. In fact the riffing as a whole has been ok tonight

re: Home cooking

AKA got that right, part and parcel of the home court advantage philosophy.

Whether they wanna admit it or not, most refs are loathe to piss the home crowd off. Pointing out fouls/violations, booing, cursing, threats of violence... come to think of it there has been a couple of cases where soccer refs have been gunned down on the field in South America if you wanna go to the extreme.

That was a charge... why Beal went so early on the last possession should be the question...

The charge call was correct. The third quarter had a few Brisbane favoured calls imo. Holyfield unsportsmanlike on tueta should have been a standard foul.

re: Home cooking

Even if they didn't call the charge on Beal, I didn't think it was a blocking foul and he lost possession so it was a turnover either way. There were a few iffy decisions but that certainly wasn't one I would hang my hat on from that game as evidence of home cooking.

They were behind. Have to leave time for a foul if you miss the shot.

After the last game between Perth and Adelaide, we had a strong Easterly blowing, and you could smell the aroma of the home-cooking blowing across the Nullarbor.

re: Home cooking

Adelaide fans are so caught up on that Knight/Randle charge call at the end of that game that they forget the Wildcats were on the wrong end of a bunch of howlers that game too. I think most cats fans acknowledge it was a very questionable call at the end, but Adelaide fans don't seem to acknowledge the other bad calls in that game.

re: Home cooking

We Adelaide supporters recognise the bad calls in that game that Perth got. We understand refs will make mistakes on calls. The main problem we had with Knight/Randle call is that the NBL has this flop rule, and in the Adelaide home games the refs had been handing out flop warnings and techs to Adleaide players left, right and centre for going down trying to get charge calls. it's the blatant inconsistency in the calling and interpretation by the refs. Have you noticed how Knight has managed to stay upright defending much bigger opponents in the games since then.

re: Home cooking

How can you complain about flop calls at home when you have the worst offender of flopping in the league on your team. The flop warning and tech situation has been a joke all year with it being called differently game to game.

re: Home cooking

not complaining about the calls happening, just the inconsistent interpretation, thats the whole point I was making about the flop call changing in the Perth game compared to at Adelaide where the refs had been calling flops. It's just guesswork by the refs and the thread is about home cooking. At the start of the year the refs were calling 1-2 flops a game and yet calling nothing lately and players are still falling over the same and the refs are more inclined to call the charge. Maybe the crowds booing/reaction to the flop calls is influencing the call. Teys lately hasn't been warned for a flop has been rewarded with charge calls.

re: Home cooking

It's obviously not home cooking, its just that Adelaide have been smart. Rather than incur the salary tax by paying players, they have put the money into paying the refs. No other possible explanation.
Unless we can get some independent and bribe proof FIBA refs for the finals, mights as well just give Adelaide the trophy now.

re: Home cooking

Seriously Adelaide paid refs.. You idiot.. If you can't see the brilliance in what is happening at Adelaide like the rest of the country is conceding and admiring then poor you. Yes reffing is inconsistent and annoying but what season and competition is it not annoying. Yes NBA seems better but their rules are different. Defensive 3 seconds is a big one and alllows more spectacle but less D so easier to ref in open space.
