Let's start of with some quotes by Adelaide’s players and coach and some of Melbourne’s players replies.
Aloisi was angry after he was sent off for two yellow cards and had this to say on the matter.
"I never even touched the player the first time," Aloisi told Fox Sports.
"I mean, Kevin Muscat kills our player on the halfway line from behind and gets him, and doesn't get a booking."
"And I don't even touch the player and get booked ... the second yellow card - Jesus, if I've seen a softer yellow card ... "
Veart one of the A-League's best and most experienced players who played in Europe for a decade had this to say about the officials at the match..
"Melbourne have done well today, but we felt we were harshly done by. I think the three blind mice could have done a better job out there," Veart said.
"The league's got to have a look at it. The players are getting very professional now, and we're getting basic errors made every week."
"It's just not good enough. This league has to look at getting better officials and start getting someone to start looking at the officials again." (The referee for the match was in fact one of the referees at the 2006 fifa world cup)
"How can they get away with basic mistakes every week and come out and get big games again?"
Kosmina was fined and banned from coaching his time on the sideline after an altercation with referee Mathew Breeze in their preliminary final against Newcastle United Jets which they won to face Melbourne in the grand final.
Not only that but Mathew Kemp Adelaide's first choice left back was suspended in the final after picking up a yellow card in their game against Newcastle. It probably shouldn't have been a yellow.
Kevin Muscat Melbourne's captain defended the referees and his tackles.
"Regardless of whether that tackle went in or not, we were going to go on and win the game," Muscat said.
"Regardless of any decisions, any offsides, the goal that was disallowed, regardless of all that, sometime you've got to admit that the better team won."
A-League chief Matt Caroll was far from impressed with Adelaide's attitude and has said they are considering fines and further action against the players and the club. He had this to say.
"We were disappointed with the behaviour of some of the Adelaide United players... at best it was poor sportsmanship, at worst it was sort of almost park-like behaviour," Carroll said in Sydney.
"We expect a lot more from professional athletes."
"It doesn't do credit to the club, it doesn't do credit to the players and it doesn't do credit to Australian sport."
Carrol said some Adelaide players may be facing disciplinary action after the incidents.
"We're reviewing a number of incidents both on-field and off-field... it is possible (there will be) fines and sanctions for some of the players," he said.
