Title: Referees
Post by: barton cobbler on February 20, 2018, 19:13:34 pm
So it seems that getting players to surround the ref after an incident does pay off, it certainly did for Wigan last night. What a weak ref Anthony Taylor proved to be, in front of the national TV cameras too. It sends out a message that if you give the ref enough verbal's he might change his mind, he really has set up his colleagues for a load of hassle !
      15 years ago that challenge wouldn't have been a booking let alone a sending off.

Well unless you have a time machine what you have said about the sending of is irreverent as this is now not then.  The challenge made was quite similar to that of the Walsall lad who took out Foley a few weeks back.  Red card. After seeing the City fans reaction after the game, good job  ;D Arrogance is so ugly. Alan Shearer is correct when he said that the big teams should put out their first 11 and then make subs when/if they go ahead.

I have no time for this part of the game. Until such time as the FA back the refs and allow them to grow some balls and penalise players for dissent and talking back to the ref this will continue. It is one area that football can learn from the egg chasers.

They tried to clamp down on it by moving free kicks forwards 10 yards when dissent was found, but then they discontinued it for some reason.
