The 2 bears who opened the show on Clyde SSB

That’s just the ones we have been on the receiving end of.

There are a few the filth have gained from as well. Hamilton last minute winner when there was 2 blatant fouls in the build up. Clancy giving them a pen for a dive against Ross county whilst they were struggling at 0-0. Griffiths staying on the park at Hamilton after stamping on an opponent then getting a Hamilton player send off with a foul that lead to their equaliser.

Then there’s the LC final. None of the tarriers last two goals against us should have stood.

Some of our supporters just aren’t grasping how much corrupt officials are impacting our season.
Yes, agree that we should call out the refs. But we need to box clever when doing so.

That’s one aspect. The other is for it to be drilled into the players - in a sensible fashion - that we will get no help from the officials (quite the opposite in many cases). So the squad needs to be alive to that and be absolutely merciless in its approach to every single game.

At the moment we are not doing the latter. For example, the Morelos dive at the piggery is beyond stupid because he’s on a yellow and must surely understand that Clancy is desperate to show him another. That happens and it has a big knock on effect on the season.

Also, question whether you need a player who can influence the referee and put him under pressure. I’m a very big fan of Tavernier. He’s a good captain but seems too nice for that sort of approach. It’s just not his style. So who else can step up and take that role? Ideally a centre mid who will be close to most of the action points.

We were one more shitty Clancy decision from not winning at the piggery in December.

In spite of battering them from first whistle to last, we were one dive in the box away from leaving there with just one point.

Just being better isn't enough.

I'm amazed that anyone who claims to be a Rangers fan refuses to see this.
I got it after the game yesterday from a couple of Bears as in if we take the officials out of the equation and just beat the team in front of us. :eek:

FFS only in the last 2 games, 10 major decisions have went against us, that's right 10 which in anyone's language is quite incredible.

3 goals incorrectly ruled out in our last 2 games along with a stonewall penalty.
Opposition goal allowed to stand after a handball.

A potential swing of 5 goals there in just 2 games due to incorrect decisions.

Aye, it's dead easy to just go out and win games when you're up against that.
And 3 points.

Then Aberdeen & the LC Final too.

And thats before their games at Hamilton ( Griffiths ), Pittodrie ( Main penalty ) and probably more I’m missing.

Despite our recent form, this league table is DRAMATICALLY different if referees just do their jobs properly.

Davis - Most experienced & seen as a really fair guy.

how much things have been different if the game was refereed fair?

we'd have won by 3/4/5 clear goals at least and the tarriers wouldve had 3/4 sent off missing their next game in which they struggled in. We lost morelos for three instead.

Excellent BT. Did they cover back to December mate ?
The second of the two highlighted the LC final and the game at the piggery.

The first caller was very good in calling out all the inconsistencies regarding what’s deemed a yellow for our players in comparison to our opponents.

It’s getting to the stage that there’s that many that folk are losing track.

When perfectly good goals are regularly being chopped off it makes that task a lot more difficult.
Good goals being chalked off.

Obvious offside goals against us being allowed.

Players being allowed to kick seven shades of shit out of us before a yellow card yet we are booked for blowing kisses and fist pumping - and we are ALWAYS booked for the first tackle.

It isnt a level playing field and if players know they are off if they time a challenge wrong but their opponents get away with it, it affects them big time on the pitch.

I also thought the 2 of them spoke well, didn’t jump in and go ott but got their point across that these decisions are costing us points. Non surprisingly, Hugh started banging on that we should be worrying about our lack of form rather than refereeing performances.

Ps. Did anyone else pick up on Alex Rae’s little dig on Taylor’s gesture yesterday?
The lack of form didn't award an illegal goal against us or disallow a winner and thats just one game at Rugby Park.

Aye bit whit aboot tommy burns team and the affside call furty years back did no one make that point.
That and the “cheating hun” Beaton not sending Morelos off eh. The guy who denied us a stonewall penalty that day and never sent Brown off for a blatant red. The guy who has cost us 5 points in the 2 away fixtures of ours he has had this season.

You know it’s bad when they need to go back years to try and find any sort of injustice.

I don't think the officials are cheats, I do however think that they are of the mindset that it's easier to not give us decisions than to give us decisions. Last year there was people going off their heads from teams all over Scotland, spurred on by the East End Nonces because we were quite rightly awarded 4 penalties in a game against St Mirren. Three out of four of those penalties were 100% pens with the other one 70% imo but regardless of this you had people who hadn't even seen the game claim the ref gave us 4 soft penalties.

Then you had idiots like Chris Sutton, Stewart et all. stoking hatred after the 2-0 game at Ibrox against the scum, they had no issue with the ref performance straight after the game but 1-2 days later they are claiming it's the worst performance ever and refs are receiving death threats of unwashed lunatic man children.

The scum claim every other ref has/had a season ticket at Ibrox and the refs are terrified to give us anything due to this.

Things like this cannot be understated.
It's not just the result on the day, there's the knock on effect too.

They'd be coming back to massive pressure on the back of an absolute hiding with at least 3 players suspended.

You then have thumb allowed to chuck stuff at fans with no action taken. Then allowed to stamp on players in a game where he should have been suspended.
A game where they should be a goal down, down to 10 men and facing 70 more minutes, instead they are inexplicably playing 10!

But no, we're wrong. It's just a few mistakes.

If they are of a mindset that it’s easier not give us a decision then surely that is a form of cheating.

You’re right mate, I’m losing track too, it’s that bad.

So glad we are fighting back. It’s been noticeable to me that SOME of the media are speaking out more now.

Gordon Duncan got in there yesterday to say that although SG didn’t complain the decisions at Kilmarnock were blatantly wrong.

During the Killie game even Craigan & Sutton we’re very strong in their comments. AND even Hartson & McFadden accepted that Jullien was very very lucky at Pittodrie on Sunday.

Been going to games for 35 years plus and can’t remember a season with more blatant cheating by refs...anyone?
I’m in my 50th year & its 100% the most prolonged & consistent period of games where we’ve been cheated in my life.

Another bear said the same to me. Forget his name but he’s been supporting us for 65 years.

It’s that bad.

So what you are saying is you don't think they are cheats, yet they are cheating?

If a team plays poorly and still grinds out a result, we are told it’s the sign of champions. We haven’t been at our best admittedly, however we haven’t been on the ended of any skelpings. Tynecastle aside an argument could be made we’ve been hard done by in the remainder of the games we’ve dropped points since December.

If we had been subject to more consistent and correct referring we could easily be sitting here 5 points better off, multiple goals better off and with a trophy in the bag.

5 points very quickly could have been;
  • stonewall penalty vs Aberdeen when we only got a free kick - finished 2-2
  • 1 or 2 red card vs Kilmarnock (Dicker/Burke), handball for their first goal, non penalty for Morelos and disallowing our goal.
Only decision of note we have benefitted from was the penalty vs Hamilton that they weren’t awarded.
