this . The ref is out of the job and back to reffing park footy if he blows the pea out of the whistle and has a 30-6 penalty count. Can’t do it, won’t do it. The Storm, Panfers and Rooters know this.Melbourne don’t change how they play, whether they cop a few early penalties or not, they know the ref won’t have the resilience to continually penalise them every set. It’s the same with the PTB, they will play it off the mark every single time knowing the worst that will happen is once in a blue moon the ref might call them to go back and play it. Every single element of their game is about pushing the rules and the game have always bent for them.
“Cop a few penalties here and there, all sweet, he can’t keep penalising us”.
And they are right…. Watch the Riff game this week, same thing will happen.
