I recently watched the 1985 Challenge Cup Final. Long held up as one of the great games of all time. Its on You Tube A few minutes in, a knock on, ref blows a penalty for laying in the ruck. Today we'd get an inquest from people screaming that the game has been destroyed. Then, the commentator said "ref has blown a penalty which is quickly taken and Hull are on the attack" The callers called. They didn't give a million opinions on why the game was being ruined. It was a joy to watch. I do boxing every week. After 30 minutes simple combinations become really hard. Fatigue plays a part. Mistakes will occur. Referees are not immune to this and nor should they be. We shouldn't expect it of them. Its easy to criticise sitting at home. If people want to throw f**king barbs they should get out there and do. If they can't they can shut the f**k up.
