Diehard Rugby League fans and casual watchers agreed on Sunday evening in their dislike for Phil Gould.
Gould coached the Panthers for their first premiere in 1991 and served as the club’s football director for many years until he stepped down from his post in 2019.
Melburnians are already sensitive to what they see as the anti-storm sentiment north of the Victorian border, and they were given extra ammunition from Gould’s work behind the microphone in the early replacement of the biggest game of the season, convinced he preferred the Panthers to them Craig Bellamy’s troops.
It started when Storm center Justin Olam received a penalty attempt in the first few minutes for Panthers center Tyrone May stepping out his leg to prevent his opponent from grounding the ball – which is illegal.
Nine commentators, Peter Sterling, said it was the right decision at halftime, and many on social media agreed. At the time, Gould said, “I don’t know what Tyrone May could have done differently there.
“It’s not what I would call random kicking, but the referee decided that he was kicking the ball.”
Gould also disagreed with a kick-off against Panther’s Hinterrower Viliame Kikau later in the first half.
“There was no knock. He actually threw a pass that was knocked down by a Melbourne Storm player, ”Gould complained. “The judgment is wrong. The judgment is wrong.
“Where was the linesman in this play?
“Should have played.”
The way Gould kept entertaining the Panthers even after 22-0 at halftime was also well received by an angry Melbourne crowd who wanted to express their feelings.
