I WENT to Proserpine on Saturday afternoon to watch, what I thought would be a good game of football between Whitsunday Brahmans and Souths Mackay.
The quality of the football was probably even better than what I expected.
But the same could not be said for the refereeing of the A Grade game.
Now I know we are taught not to question refs and to be graceful in defeat, but we’re also taught to be fair.
If it was incompetence, the bad calls would be shared by both sides, but when only one side gets them all, then I think integrity comes in to the equation.
I can remember Gorden Tallis questioning Bill Harrigan’s integrity in a State of Origin game and ending up getting sent off for calling him a cheat.
Maybe my view is not shared by everyone, but when Souths supporters say it was embarrassing and that they felt sorry for the Whitsunday players, I think some questions need to be asked and hopefully some answers provided.
