Hey guys, I play in the AAM 9. Know absolutely nothing about your division but when I was dropping off the team sheet from our game at Max Ruddock I started watching Winsto Blk vs Rydalmere. Game was abandoned in the second half. The score was 1-1, official ref and two linesmen, decisions were going against Rydalmere, correctly for the most part, but yeah a couple were probably wrong including a blatant handball on halfway. You could tell Rydalmere were getting agitated and the ref was copping an earful, especially from the bench from perhaps the coach maybe? Someone not in uniform anyway. Winsto then scored to make it 2-1 and Rydalmere were adamant it was offside. I was right in-line with it watching on the hill and was clearly onside and a legit goal. The linesman agreed. But a group of Rydalmere players, including the keeper, got in the refs face. No idea what was being said but I can't imagine it was pleasant. Finally the ref tried to move to halfway and one player lashed out with his foot knocking the ref to the ground and that was it. A couple of players then had to be physically restrained by their teammates from chasing after the ref but it didn't stop them hurling abuse at the ref as he ran from the field. Disgraceful scene. I know you blokes play the top division, but it was ridiculous and it's games like this that result in none of us getting refs.
This is our first year playing 5's but the one game we played rydalmere (I was suspended) could have gone the same way. It seems everyone has the same thing to say about rydalmere. This could have serious ramifications for them though...

Yep I was playing 35/2's on the other field. Our ref stopped the game and took details, I know both teams in our game were disgusted and I hope the ***** goes for life and chuck the whole team out of the comp, the Winston hills officials did a great job of sorting the situation and looking after the ref.
There were two very young assistant refs doing the game and they looked absolutely terrified, as I said bloody disgusting, make an example of the whole bloody team. Granville, step up and stamp this crap out of our association NOW!

Exactly right Bronx about the refs nd zampa with the repeated offenders, they should be removed from this competition when teams and officials are afraid for their safety playing/reffeering against these blokes and they will not stop their behavior until they are made an example of and this behavior is not tolerated. Surely Winston hills will get the 3 points even though the game was abandoned?
