    Can we actually analyse some of what he said in the presser, for those who haven't seen it yet... http://www.nrl.com/fw1-press-conference-sharks/tabid/10959/contentid/936546/default.aspx

    Keep in mind he's said the game needs fixing because they can't get any calls right, not even close yet for a man who clearly came in prepared it's amazing how wrong he was;

    Let's start with his thoughts on the James Maloney sin binning

    "Touch Judge is calling Lachlan Coote offside, so what's first? Penalty to us but no what is it, player in the sin bin"

    "When James Maloney touches him the ball is already in Valentine's hands"

    If you're going to come out and bag the refs, make sure you're getting the calls right yourself otherwise you're just as incompetent as them, worse because you've had the benefit of replays.

    Maloney clearly touches him before Valentine gets the ball and Lachlan Coote isn't even close to being offside. This type of ranting and raving is embarrassing for the game.

    Paul Gallen's attempt at milking a penalty was diabolical today.

    God forbid a coach getting angry after his side lost a controversial match

    Guarantee anyone else in his shoes does the same thing

    The problem is there sh*t calls on both sides.
    Sharks 2nd try was on a bs penalty, the 1st shouldn't have been a try imo but will cop it.
    It wasn't as if the Cows didnt get crappy calls either.

    No accountability, Sharks made plenty of errors and mistakes in game management.
    That's why they lost.

    Agree with him on the Fifita knock back and the Matt Prior penalty. Gallen tried to milk it.
    I reckon Maloney is a victim of being Maloney, kick chaser are obstructed or interfered with in every game yet they wait until the semi finals to start binning blokes.

    Hit the ball with his legs. Fair penalty.
    First try wasnt grounded in the goal line. Fair try.
    But you are correct. Sharks made plenty of errors and mistakes that cost them the game.

    I don't recall flanno's rant about the refs a few seasons ago after the whole try on the 7th tackle

    The sharks missed 37 tackles today

    You just think that cos we're used to piss weak refs who are too scared to use the bin.
    Deliberately grabbed a player to deprive him of an opportunity for a try scoring play. Should be a sin bin every day of the week. need more of it.

    To be taken seriously, coaches need to get upset about the standard of officiating after winning. Barrett should've acknowledged the terrible Uate decision against the Knights earlier in the year. Instead he said something along the lines of "you win some you lose some". If you only care about shithouse refereeing when it impacts on you negatively, then you can't expect anyone else to care when it happens and there'll never be the improvement we all hope for.

    Round 1 thru 26 you get rorted you might have a case to blow up, but in a sudden death semi,you show a bit of class,give the other mob a rap, and reflect on miss chances. You save your sprays for a few days. Okay Flannigan must have been gutted,but it has come over as a bad case of sour grapes.

    Also were the Sharks the better team???

    Refs have been pretty good this weekend. Just a whole lot of sooking fans of losing teams.
