I am so bloody upset I’m staying a million miles away from anything resembling a TV! I see the Supersport report calls the Lions very lucky at that last breakdown…I suppose that is one way to put it!

  • @SeanJeff (Comment 195) : yes, when we complain, we are sour losers, because the lions were so great this season…I am just so over a ref being a cheat, cause no professional ref can be that bad by accident. I also walked away from the tv after mapoe’s try, could not stop shouting at the tv

  • I heard from a well known news paper reporter that the Sharks attended the post match formalities for only a few minutes and left. Rdp refuse to respond to any questions. There might be some consequences for them. Some accused them of being completely unprofessional and ……. Needless to say, the Lions call their actions non-sportsman like

    Question, do you think their actions is justified and appropriate?

  • @pastorshark (Comment 196) : mate the amount of swear words I typed after the game to post here would have made my mother disown me! Luckily my girlfriend saw it and took my phone away and only got it back now. Cheating is an understatement of what we witnessed today.

  • I really don’t like it when fans start blaming refs as I am a strong believer that sometimes the calls go your way and sometimes it doesn’t. The perception might also be that they are bad losers.

    I recall the Super 2007 final (I am sure most of us do). The manner in which they beat us in the last few minutes still haunts me. Jaco vd Westhuizen climb on the crossbar of Rugby goal post after the game revealing a white shirt that he had underneath his jersey. The shirt had a religious message on it and I thought to myself “what a contradiction!”

    Are we bad losers, if we complain about the refs? The Sharks team has selected this as their professional career and just like any other job, certain decisions would be perceived as unfair. I assume just like we would vent our dissatisfaction about those unfair decisions, they have the right to do so.

  • In general I will always advocate a dignified to response to whatever comes your way. I can understand this though. The second half was poor reffing and I got hot under the collar…but looking straight at a Sharks player who has hands on the ball, not penalising him because you know he is legally on the ball and then just ignoring the fact that the Lions player is holding on in front of the poles after the hooter…what can that be but just blatantly not wanting the Lions to lose on their home ground in what would have been Ackers last game. That’s just wrong. The Sharks aren’t doing themselves any favours with this reaction, but I can understand it and I feel it is the sort of response you will get in the face of the no-consequences impunity of referees…they feel powerless in the face of being robbed in broad daylight for all to see and this is about all they can do! What happened on that field was wrong and it makes me sick to my stomach…right now…well, screw it!

    Maybe we rest a few players after a long sr season.

  • So…
    Rob Houwig: …the Sharks, who may also feel referee Marius van der Westhuizen made some brutal calls against them at important times…
    AFP: The Sharks suffered severely from the harsh yellow-carding of lock Stephan Lewies…
    Brendon Nel: On a day of drama, it isn’t far-fetched to say the Lions burgled the win after looking rather ordinary for most of the game, and were given one of the luckiest decisions right at the end where it seemed the Sharks looked to have won the ball on the final whistle and their players howled for a penalty for their cause. Referee Marius van der Westhuizen, ignored their pleas and gave the Lions a fortunate scrum, ending the game and giving the home side a massive victory in the process.

    None of it seemed to balance out, did it? This is what is so frustrating – the problem is there for all to see but absolutely nothing can be done about it…and making the Sharks the bad guys also doesn’t help…

    Ag damn it!

  • @BluffShark (Comment 199) : I really hope that is true. We were robbed. How many times must this happen especially when that fuck but is referring? The crap thing is if you complain you are called a bad loser. How was a penalty not awarded for the tackle on Kobus? He was tackled without the ball.

  • We need to discover why we are always getting robbed by match officials. Do our guys chirp the ref during the game? Is our captain too confrontational with the ref? I don’t know how many games we have lost due to bad calls against us by refs. The refs should remain neutral though and until something gets done about it, I will support RDP’s actions when it comes to post match conferences regardless of sanction. Bullshit is bullshit. Quiet diplomacy has not worked for us.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 213) : Discipline like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. How many around the neck clean outs at ruck time get overlooked every single match? But oosthuizen already had been carded early in the season, hence he is over scrutinized on this at every ruck. Same with our Aussie and kiwi counterparts when bans are handed out. Our captains tend to approach the ref hands in the air requesting justice. Kriel last night was the model of how to approach the ref. He started every statement with : sir could you please, if he didn’t hear what he wanted, with a straight face: yes, sir, thank you, sir. Where Philip had clear disgust on his face when he wasn’t pleased
