Team performed well, with the exception of a couple heartbreaking decisions. Editor's Note: There's a change from the last few weeks. The form will now be listed above Scott's ratings so that inputs can be taken with less influence from his ratings. Loading... I'll just start this week's ratings by saying I don't give referee ratings. I know a lot of you are pretty upset with the referee, but that's not the point of this exercise.
