Was at the other end and haven't saw it again but going by players reaction it must have been a clear case for a penalty? 

Even Walker on sky said a good few times it was a penalty.

While he refused to say the first handball was a penalty when Crocker said it was.

Must have been pretty blatant if that slime ball was agreeing in our favour.

It was mate.

The earlier one was debateable and Crocker thought it was but Walker just snubbed him when he said it.

I'm the same mate. Opposite end of the ground, but , as you say , practically our whole team & bench all seemed pretty adamant it was a stick on.

While we should be beating the likes of Kilmarnock without penalties, too regularly refereeing decisions are going against us which is costing us points because we are not good enough at the moment

But referees know that they can get away with not giving us decisions that they'd never dare be so relaxed about it with the green and grey hordes.

So until we do start saying something about it, we will be playing to a different set of rules than everyone else.

While we understandably don't want to become a bunch of biased whiners like that bunch stropping every time they think they're hard done by, we can still question why we are not getting decisions in a civilised manner.

And that has to include us fans, our few friendlies in the media, the manger and players, and the board speaking up about it.

Was with my brother and we both said it must have been a fair shout going by our players reactions. Ref never looked interested.

The challenge on Boyd by Wilson, he quite clearly caught him. Seen given for far far less. Was shocked it wasn't given.

Refereeing decisions are scrutined more heavily if:

1. It influences an important game, cup final, semi -final or close fought league campaign.

2. The team is pish and every decision from the ref carries more significance as the team arent capable of rendering the ref irrelevant.
