Obviously a knights supporter.

Read Chris's comments - he admits they were lucky. As for the foul - watch the game highlights.

Disgruntled Boro fan tired of watching the guys pain which is not their fault.
You clearly dont understand what good football is. Because if you did you would be disgruntled about the way Boro try and play. Not the other poor excuses. Even your own star player Schutch was moaning about balls not being played to feet.

Attention Borough players and coaches.

Try playing the ball into your strikers and wide players feet and getting in behind the opposition defence instead of knocking POINTLESS LONG BALLS! It is OBVIOUSLY not working and your coach should be burning the players that keep doing this OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Cooper, D Pearce, Palmer and Hawkins are not up to standard and continually knock the ball long to shy away from the fact that they can't play anywhere near decent football.


I have never agreed more with a post on this forum - spot on.

Boro must adopt a coaching philosphy that eschews the long ball. Look at Hey at Knights - limited cattle but his players have bought into his approach to play out and to feet.

BLOODY REFEREES!!!

They give out cards and they are crucified ....they dont give out cards and they are crucified !

We should stand down all referees for a week and see what happens then !

Pandemonium I would have thought!



Probably get a fair even game......

The first half should have been 1 nil to Kingborough
One disallowed goal which was clearly over
One penalty which was clearly not a penalty and there was no way the referee could see it from where he was standing


At the time of posting this comment there are 8 negatives. That means these 8 were not at the game - watch the highlights.

Luckily the mistakes by the ref were against both teams this time. The most obvious one which shows a clear lack of understanding of the game- the advantage rule... Use it!
Also not every bump and knock is a certain foul, believe it or its a contact sport. Watching ONE game on tv should highlight these points.

Any week the Lions lose they blame the referreeing. Perhaps they should look in their own den to where the blame lies.

He doesn't get on with spinner


He get's on fine with Spinner, Hill doesn't have the maturity to keep the ego in check. Hence all the petulant behaviour. Look at a lot of 19 year old and you'll understand what I mean. Then put that 19 year old who comes from a league where there are thousand just like him e.g he's a nobody, into a league where he's touted as a possible star and presto. Instant egomaniac. I have confidence that he'll work it out, if he stays in Tas.
