I am far from hung up on the tree of fouls for & against, just in case you are hung up on just one of my posts in this thread.
"Boti might or might not be arguing about 'home cooking' or lack of it"
There is no "might or might not" about it. It's there in black and white.
SA refs, in their attempt to show no home bias, instead go the other way and disadvantage Lightning.
How about this gem
He rightly was over-ruled, which strongly suggests he was either completely wrong or did not know. If it was the latter, then clearly his automatic decision was to favour the visitors. If it was the former, well ....
Because of course, the only reason one ref with one view on a court can get one call wrong is utter incompetence, right? And the only reason they can make a judgement call one way over the other is a need to favour the visitors, right?
I'm fine with people calling me out on whatever leaps of logic I make, but crap like that is allowed through to the keeper unchallenged? LOL
I am concerned about the standard of officiating too. To me there is a noticeable gap between NBL and WNBL, and it's not like NBL refs are flawless themselves.
There's also a gap in resources between the 2 leagues, so it makes the reffing gap harder to close.
So what's the solution?
