Below is a 125 page paper on professional sport being impacted on referee decisions and some may find it interesting.
Essentially at the time of writing there does not seem to be any precedent where a court has awarded relief in equity and ordering the reversal of a match result . There are precedents which impact decisions where match fixing has occured or on the case of NSWRL, where unregistered players had been used.
There is a chance in torts for a team to seek damages for brech of duty of care however, this is dicussed at length but the “but if” test would need to be proven. I don’t think that the tigers would be seeking $$ compensation and are pushing for the 2 points.
Indeed this statement seems to be most relevant to the Tigers.
“Case Law demonstrates a judicial reluctance to interfere with the outcome of sports contests unless there is a showing of bad faith, fraud or corruption. The same resistance has been met in holding sports officials personally liable for monetary injuries resulting from officiating mistakes.”
Personally, I hope that the tigers don’t go down the path of litigation, whilst they may have written advice that favours seeking relief, I’d say that it’s not in the spirit of the game and sets a dangerous example moving forward.
Edit: I don’t know much about horse racing, but they do have a process of race protest. Hmmm now I am conflicted.
