|Unfortunately, players and coaches are not allowed to criticize these guys no matter how much they interfer with the
bad calls. All things being fair one would think that "bad" calls would even out over the years. But apparently there is something about being
a New Zealand team that upsets these guys. When I coached basketball I instilled in the boys the idea that the team had to beat the other side and
the referees. The best teams do that. You take the game away from the whistle blowers.|
| Steve ClarkMisses opponents' forward passes. Sux rating: 3|
|Sean HampsteadWe are talking blatant calls with this guy.
And he keeps a straight face. If refs' performances are reviewed, how does he keep his job? He more than any other one makes the wrong call in critical situations that
completely affect the result.
Sux rating: 8|
|Paul SimpkinsVery even handed.
The others can learn from his marshalling. Most of calls are accurate, but no one is perfect so he still has to suck.
Sux rating: 1
|Russell SmithI really liked him when he first came down-under
but he has been in Australia too long and now acts like the other refs. To be fair, in the only Warrior game he has done in 2006 he made equally bad calls
against both sides.
