Bigs and foul trouble

All the talk about Tyler getting hard done by with calls is just a new version of an established theme from the past couple years. Last year Hodgeson and Jacobson couldn't breath on someone because they would get a foul. Hodgeson is still finding it tough this year.

Nbl refs not used to reffing big guys. If a big guy does something like a big block, screen or use their strength the nbl refs call foul. Been like that for a while. Doesn't help when most refs are short and think they see wrong

Josh Boone had his troubles at times but seems to have adjusted of late.

I'm saying they're all hard done by with the current ref crop of duds. He's not alone.

Don't start me on how poorly big guys get treated by refs. Been watching that crap for years. The other week I saw a smaller opponent grab a bigger guy around the waist from behind, they lost balance under the ring and fell backwards.

The call.

A bloody charge on the big fella'

Refs out there, there is NO FOUL on a guy just because he is big!

Rant over...................!!!!!!!
