Good call v bad call - we all make them, and let's face it, no one heads into a game trying to make a mistake.
Ask NRL ref Ben Cummins who is still adding up how many tackles are indicated when you wave your hand in the air after a ball appears to bounce off a defender who's played at it from a kick.
But that's rugby league for you, and good on Raiders coach Ricky Stuart for making the call to not criticise Cummins after what was an outstanding NRL grand final, because that's a classy call. And probably saved Sticky thousands of dollars in fines.
Just as easy to miss the good call which was Latrell Mitchell's decision shortly after Cummins' howler to throw an exquisitely timed flick pass to a flying Daniel Tupou who burst down the flank before clinically delivering to an unstoppable Tedesco in support, turning hopeful Raiders supporters into abject miserable wretches for yet another 12 months.
You just can't afford to dwell on those calls, because we all make them, classy or otherwise, and I don't want to ponder if it's in the spirit of the game applauding the team that won, even though I wasn't going for them.
Good call v bad call occurs on all levels of life and often turns on the outcome.
Donald Trump's call to allow Turkey to invade northern Syria and potentially obliterate the Kurds is possibly a bigger call than any made during the NRL decider, just.
Bad call for the Kurds, who fought side by side with the Americans against Islamic State, and maybe a worse call for the world if the Kurds, rightly incensed that their former allies are selling them out, decide to re-animate ISIS.
Sometimes a good call or a bad depends on which side of the drone strike you're on, other times it might be whether it takes your mind off impeaching the president.
The A-League kicks off this week and it won't be long before good call v bad call comes into question in the form of the review.
Like so many sports, football was never satisfied with the ref's call, often because they got it wrong, a lot.
So they instituted the review in all it's various bunker forms, providing so much technology, so many slow motion replays, all that accuracy for officials to misinterpret.
True football fans revel in the shadows between fair call and getting away with murder and often the review provides the same opportunity. Australia's dairy industry is supposed to be struggling but you wouldn't think so given the amount of milking that goes on in the beautiful game. It might be a great call this season if officials decide to crack down on it, but don't hold you're breath because that's football mate.
Having a review system is better than having no review system, though, no matter how many times they review that decision due to good calls and bad.
For Roosters' fans, Ben Cummins' howler was a good call. For Raiders fans, it was an opportunity to suck it up until next season. Don't start me on cricket replays.
