No outcry from the media when we get bad calls

If said ref makes sure that absolutely no possession comes your way, then yes that ref can be blamed. That second half was fxcking managed by the officials. 6 nil penalties and 5 x 6 agains, as well as not calling back a blatant forward pass, penalising us for a good tackle into touch, and awarding an obvious obstruction try, and not penalising the bulldogs for JAC blatant flop and not penalising the dogs for the crusher on Eisunhuth. And sending Lomax to the bin when he barely touched him. Too many blatant things that were conveniently overlooked, yet in the first half the dogs got a stack of 6 agains that were less infringements than the ones we got pinged for in the second half. The ref thought the dogs were PERFECT as far as 6 agains go in 80 minutes of footy. Game management at its best. Oh, and Burton was in front of Sexton for their first try
We got a stack of penalties in the 1st half and scored twice. Flanno thought we played well in the first half. I didn't.

We made some good metres although that was aided significantly by penalties.

But whenever we were in the opposition 20, we looked pretty lost - like we were so surprised to have gotten there we didn't know what to do.

It's been that way for years now.

Do you actually think Adam Gee made a conscious decision to get Canterbury back into the game and then ensure the Dragons could not win?

We are way down the bottom few teams for penalties received and 6-agains received. Most of the penalties we get are absolute penalties where the ref has no choice due to a smack across the chops, crusher, blatant flop, etc. We get very few discretionary penalties where the ref has to decide if a penalty is warranted. The frustrating thing is that whilst we don't receive these penalties, our opposition in the very same game, get 4 or 5 of them. In so many games we have received none or one 6-again and the ones we get are usually after the 60 minutes mark and the game is just about out of reach.
Mr Hunt needs to whinge like a Storm captain, he just whimpers and pouts

The stack of penalties were evened out by 5 or 6 six-agains to the doggies. In the second half the doggies got 6 penalties to our none and we got zilch 6-agains.
Therefore, in the first half possession was at around 50%. And that is why Flanno was happy with us leading. In the second half possession was at about 70-75%. Even Penrith would have got smacked in the second half with that much possession against them. It is impossible to defend for 30 minutes of a 40 minutes half. Especially against a backline that includes Tracy, Kiraz, Xerri, Chrichton, JAC, Burton and Sexton. + Kikau and Preston out wide.

I thought Flanno would be more vocal about the bad calls and the refs but the team is getting flogged when they lose so he cannot really blame refs. If they lose a close one to a bad call I will be interested to see how he will react. It won't be far away that is for sure.

Even the team leading the comp and having the best defence got shredded when the possession and momentum is 70% against you. The Sharks were just as much up shit creek as we were. I said above that "even Penrith would have got smacked in the second half with that much possession against them". If you replaced "Penrith" with "Sharks" it proves my point. NO TEAM can overcome the possession against stat we endured against the doggies.
