I pretty much agree with this, one difference though is that a bad call at the very end really does decide the game as there’s nowhere for it to go after that. when it happens early on, an entirely different game unfolds after the decision, so you can’t concretely say how it influenced the end result the way you can with a late call.Not trying to step on any toes here, but can anyone here honestly convince me or themselves that a poor or non decision in the last 10 seconds, is any different to one during the course of the game?
There were multiple poor decisions in that game as there is in every game. Specific ones that stick out to me include the 'chopping the arms' that lead to Close's goal despite the fact there wasn't even the slightest contact. Another is the first goal of the game when Henderson kicked the ball all but 7 metres to Miers. If you nullify every bad decision then you probably lose a couple of goals as well. Can't just pick and choose pointing out the last one.
I would even argue the same point in favour of you guys in the Brisbane game.
