It's funny how the Sea Bogans (Mariners) are immune from criticism of poor/low home crowds in the A League.

I would have kicked them out of the A League Years ago myself except for the fact they seem to be a fertile breeding ground for young and upcoming junior footballers in this country so we are stuck with them.

Defiantly, the commentators even went out of their way to mention there was some possible weather on the radar when mentioning the crowd.

Fair comment. Still it wasn't played in our home ground/city in a one off anomaly.

Doesn't take away from my main point in that Mariners constantly have many of the piss poor/lowest home crowds in the A League and no one dares criticise those 'battlers' for it.

your trolling cheap shot doesn't really apply in a salary capped league where every club operates under the same rules and financial fair play rules

I dont troll of which you seem to be an expert in,i thought a couple of players could be paid outside the salary cap but not entirely up to date.

Name me which club has lost more quality players to other clubs or overseas in the last 3 years than Melbourne City ?

Given how heavily and stringent the ATO watches high profile/high income people, esp sports stars (of any code) its practically impossible to rort the salary cap these days, esp now in a code like Association Football (our owners the City Football Group are in a bit of a pickle currently about it)

Good thing Mclaren didn't take that penalty shot.
 
This ref is possibly the worst I gave seen at any professional level, not just the A League

What a bloody turnip. Three VAR decisions overuled him (so far)
.

It's his 2nd A-League game and he is not really any worse than any of the other clowns. I didn't see the City pen but I can understand why he initially didn't give the pen against Leckie.

Well I will cut him some slack from that perspective I suppose.

Jamie MacLaren and his lazy, arrogant form of late is really starting to piss me off..

Saw this previously with Floparoli at City. Get a big head from media yanking your chain and become complacent

Least he shaved that s***Ty peroxide haircut I suppose.
