For the second time this season, Flynn, Melbourne coach Chris Anstey and the rest of the Tigers line-up have left a game in Perth feeling they simply were not given a chance to compete against the Wildcats.
In what was a likely semi-final preview between the second-placed Perth and third-placed Melbourne, the Tigers had scored six quick points during the third quarter before too bizarre unsportsmanlike fouls were called in favour of the Wildcats.
The first was on Flynn when he tangled Damian Martin and then another on Tigers' backup guard Nate Tomlinson for barely a touch on Rhys Carter.
That turned the momentum back in Perth's favour and the home side went on to lead by 15 points at three quarter-time, and prevail by 20 to win a 10th straight match at home and improve to an 18-5 record on the season to be eight wins ahead of the Tigers now on the ladder.
While his coach didn’t want to comment on the refereeing after being fined for comments he made last time in Perth, Flynn was not afraid to let loose with his press conference post-match likely to cost the former 163-game NBA point guard, and No. 6 draft pick, a fine from the NBL.
"It's hard to win eight against five. I know Chris is saying he doesn’t want to say anything, but I will," Flynn said.
"Hats off to Perth for playing really well, but there comes a time in the game where you can't have outside things affecting the game."
Even though the Tigers managed to keep their cool on-court much better than last time in Perth, Flynn said that no matter how hard you try to ignore the 'outside factors' that opposition teams have to put up with, it still bites you at some point.
"You can put it out of your head when you are out there, but that doesn’t mean it's going to stop. You can play and it wasn’t as though there were unsportsmanlikes for us reacting to anything Perth did, it wasn’t things like that," Flynn added.
"It was out of our head and we were just playing the game, but as the game went on certain things happened that you just can't control. You have to take a look at this. It's already hard enough to beat them but when you have these outside things impacting the game it makes it impossible.
"It's just sickening. You play so hard and you've got these guys in the locker room playing so hard, and knowing you can't really have your imprint on it all the way because of these other outside interferences. It's tough.
"You've got guys playing their heart out trying to fight for a finals run and you have these outside things impact the game and it's just sickening, it's sickening."
Flynn is just 17 games into his NBL career but one thing he was told early on was how hard it was to come to Perth and get a victory for a visiting side.
He was flabbergasted that nobody has come out and said anything so bluntly about it before and had no qualms putting himself out there to talk on behalf of the other teams in the league.
"One thing I heard when I first came to the NBL was that you come here and you have to be ready to play a little extra and play a little harder because things aren’t going to go your way," Flynn said.
"I was thinking why everyone knows this and why nothing has ever been said about these certain things when you come here to play. I don’t know if Perth is a city that kidnaps referees or anything like that. This is my first time in Australia and I'm still trying to feel it out, but the crowd could be a factor who knows.
"It really has to get looked upon because when you come into these situations and you are playing against a great team already. It's hard to be on the road and when you have other things influencing the game it just throws everything out the window."
Despite his frustrations, Flynn doesn’t feel the referees cost Melbourne the game with them outplayed by the Wildcats.
"We didn’t have our best game and they outrebounded us by almost 20 and that's one thing we limited them at when we were at home. While not having our best game, we still hung around and then it happened," Flynn said.
"We just have to stay locked in and stay focused, and we have things that we have to accomplish still to get into the finals. We have tough games coming up that we have to win and we just have to come together as a team. We will just move on and leave this in the dust. It's over, it happened with and we lost, but hopefully we can see them again."
While Anstey didn’t want to go into specifics, he will let the NBL know when he talks to general manager Chuck Harmison and referees manager, and former AFL umpire, Peter Carey.
"I'm not going to comment on the referees, but I will be asking Chuck Harmison and Peter Carey a lot of questions on Monday," Anstey said.
"I'm not paying $1000 for this press conference, but it's a tough place to come and play at the best of times. There were errors made, we broke down offensively and they killed us on the boards.
"It was a 30-rebound turnaround from last time so there's a number of issues there and a number of areas we need to get better at. It's a tough environment to try and get better at it in. I hope we come here again and if we do, we cross our fingers."
