Please for the love of (insert your own chosen deity) can we leave threads about games alone and post all the stuff about referees,good, bad or indifferent on here.

That way we may be able to discuss rugby games rather than how referee's are biased, rubbish,cheats, ruining your, my, that league.


Cheers

Good idea. Will try to stick to it myself, but don't think certain others will.

Hope to be proven wrong.

Not going to happen, nor should it. Decisions are a part of discussing the events of the game.

They are, but this isn't about simply discussing officials decisions in a game thread. In fact it's about some destroying game threads, using those threads as a conduit to vent their spite. This needs to stop, and this thread is a way of doing that. It should happen, but I doubt it will.

Is that on the pro 12 threads? If it completely derails the threads fair enough, I don't tend to read them.

It is, and reading them will just give you a headache. The threads outside of that which do discuss refs, etc are fine, and enjoyable to read. Not so the Pro12 threads that tend to be hijacked if they involve the Provinces.

There are a small number of posters from both the regions and the provinces that derail pro12 threads regardless of if its about officials or something else, the majority of them turn into playground one-up-man-ship with each side simply blaming the other for starting it 1st. I very much doubt a thread about referee's will change that.

Leinster should do the same for the reverse a couple of weeks ago where Fiztgibbon seemed to refuse to penalise the Scarlets.

Yes they should if they feel they have ample video evidence. It's the failure to raise awareness of the league's shortcomings that is contributing to it's downfall.

At least you have accepted that the refs aren't bias towards the provinces now. It took a while but we got there OK

Chunky again your taking your opinion and using it to arrive at a conclusion that doesn't hold up to fact

Theres no evidence of a downfall in the Pro12, in fact the opposite would appear to be true considering they were able to add Sky to their broadcasters and increase attendances to games. Surely a downfall would see a fall in attendances and/or a loss of broadcasters?

The league having it's own review of officials. Teams compiling lists of unacceptable decisions. Fans booing referieez off the pitch even whrn their team has won.

Its getting worse and worse.

Yeah but then you'd have to ask where currently teams don't ask for clarifcation. English teams certainly do and the international teams do. Are you really doing your job right as a coach if you're not asking? I think we'd all agree that the football Premiership is one of the most professional leagues in the world and the greatest manager there in a lot of opinions (Ferguson) used to constantly question refs and get some of them banned from reffing Man U. Is that league viable?

Fans will always boo officials. Some fans even boo when the calls are obviously correct...

You see the league having it's own review of officials as a negative! There's no pleasing you. It's great that this is being done, and surely the answer to your gripes.

It's only getting 'worse and worse' in your head. It's what you want to see. It's your only hope of something that is never going to happen - A B&I.

I have been at matches and actually seen people leaving the game in disbelief at what they are seeing and claiming why they are bothering when such inept refereeing is reflecting on the outcome of a rugby match. The product is poor becuase we have inept officials.

Why can't people see this ?

The league should always be reviewing its officials but the current one is....

'....comprehensive officiating review, focusing predominantly on the appointment of the league's assistant referees'

As for teams compiling lists of unacceptable decisions

We are going through a process, as we do after every game,” said head coach Wayne Pivac.

“You can have an opinion, but you have to be able to back it up with facts and video and that’s what we have done.

“We will send some video away and we are just asking for clarification, so if we are in those positions going forward hopefully the outcomes are a bit more favourable.”

So it happens after every game, its just highlighted on this occasion because of the added controversy and they can be better prepared

As a few on here have stated, they have seen incidents at games and been outraged only to see things differently once they have seen highlights or the whole match back. Outraged home fans aren't the best barometer for a refs performance

It's not my imagination, I have witnessed it with my own eyes and ears. I have actually been at games where people have left and said they would not bother next time because they are fed up. The last time I saw it was at the Ospreys V Munster game, and it was not just one or two, there were loads of them all up in arms because of the inept refereeing. Please do not take the mick as I have witnessed it first hand.

I haven't noticed a huge drop off in attendance at Scarlets. Maybe Scarlets fans are victims of mass hysteria? It can happen, I suppose. Especially in Wales, with the water and everything.

I do not get to go to too many Scarlets matches. It's too far to travel, and now that the holiday season is over I have no reason to go down to my caravan in Tenby so I do not bother, so I cannot speak for them, but I do go to a lot of Blues games, and I also try to watch Ospreys and trust me, there are a lot of disgruntled fans when it comes to the standard of refereeing in our league. Not just me and chunky on here.

Ok a genuine question.
How do we improve the standard?
Full time refs? Who pays them? Where do they train? More ref swaps with other leagues?

Well for a start I would have fully pro refs. I would get them all up to speed and as close as possible to the fitness of the players, I would have them all employed by the league, not the unions, and I would have them all driving the same protocols and all working to the same mandates that the league sets out. You see, for instance, the WRU could have their refs looking at certain aspects of the game, and the IRFU could have their refs looking at something else. I would want one employer with one hymn sheet.

Because I can't take your claim seriously. The evidence contradicts your claim. I can also understand why fans might walk out on Ospreys and Cardiff this season. They haven't exactly lit up the league, have they? Although Ospreys will get back on track no doubt.

It would depend on refs wages. It would be very expensive, I think, but I also think it would be the Unions that pay out, as they do now. Unless you're suggesting the teams pay top up? I think it could be doable, but then it still comes down to resources.

If they are fully professional and impartial then that should not be an issue. Refs who ref people who are from the same organisation is my issue, their nationality isn't, as long as they are good enough I could not give two hoots where they came from. At least they would all have just one organisation sanctioning things and pushing the same mandates and protocols.

Can't be good for his self esteem. But watching that game I would be backing the decision if I was a Scarlets supporter... Heck I'll support the decision anyway if we can see it across the board. In that game I thought Hodges was intimidated by Leinster's pedigree and their crowd.

If they are fully professional and impartial then that should not be an issue. Refs who ref people who are from the same organisation is my issue, their nationality isn't, as long as they are good enough I could not give two hoots where they came from. At least they would all have just one organisation sanctioning things and pushing the same mandates and protocols.

The reason for the question was more to do with travel, as always working away would ratchet up the cost
