Five red cards in the English Premier League yesterday, three of them nonsense. Another soft one today at Southampton, inside 45 minutes.

Are refs on a mission to ruin football for spectators?

    Have a look at Callum Paterson’s red card at Hamilton yesterday and you’ll see it’s not just in England…

    No, they just don’t and can’t see everything. Until football accepts immediate video replays to help the ref like Rugby does, the refs have no chance. The famous “Hand of God” would never have been allowed along with a multitude of iffy goals refused or awarded. C’mon people, with all the money in there, you’d think they could afford the technology to ensure that stadiums don’t blow up because of a bad decision. Then again, maybe they’re afraid of something….

    Problem is, Fergus, that sometimes they see things that never happen, or take a rigid attitude to things that do.

    Point taken; you can’t capture something that didn’t happen on camera, not that quick anyway.

    In the Noble case, the camera captured it straightaway. In Coutinho’s case, second yellow, It took a second or two longer. Refs can have bad games, like players; but when policies are laid down that impinge on their discretion and affect their common sense thinking it’s the clubs and the punters who lose out. That’s my concern.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
