Even when the ref is k*k you can’t say so
Wellington – A complaint of “match day misconduct” against the Stormers was under investigation following the Super Rugby team’s win over the Hurricanes, SANZAR said on Wednesday.
Lately I have watched a couple of soccer games and I soooo wish the soccer bosses would become as strict as rugby.
The mob of players that gang up on the ref to express their disgust or argue a point after he has blown the whistle, is a disgrace. I have never seen a referee change his mind and reverse his decision. The way they back away from the mob to avoid being pulled and pushed around is ridiculous. I would also love to see off field cards, handed out by TV match officials for diving and outright cheating to get freekicks and penalties. (David Luis) over the weekend. To still lie writhing on the ground play acting, then smile at the camera is not clever it’s cheating and should be stamped out of the game. What are we teaching our kids? Is it clever and OK to cheat now?
Refs are not infallible and make mistakes – they don’t have slow mo replays. Accept the k*k decisions for and against. Complain via the correct channels after the game and get on with the game.
