Are referees getting more stupid (and linesmen)

this was awarded a goal! player shoots at the goal, hits the crossbar and bounces down at least 5 feet in front of the goal line.

The goal was awarded due to the poofter neck attire being sported by the keeper.

well that is a good point. Tevez wears them aswell. Still though how could this resemble a goal!!! Martin Hansson and his linesman must be at it again. They both had an uninterupted view.

About 85/86 minutes were gone in the Celtic game last weekend and Boruc launched the ball forward as below:

Next thing, the lino was flagging and Falkirk were awarded a freekick on the edge of the box after he informed the ref that Boruc had brought the ball out of the box. Truly ridiculous.

Ever hear about the time the Clare U/21 goalie got pulled for pucking the ball out from outside the small square?

Let us not forget, Tipperary would be All Ireland Senior Hurling champions but for the referee.

Paraguyan footballer banned for 27 games for trying to choke referee

The Paraguayan footballer José Pedroso has been handed a 27-game ban for attempting to choke a referee during a Chilean second division match at the weekend.

The governing body of Chile’s professional league handed down the penalty late yesterday.

The ruling stated that the defender had been banned for 20 games for attempting to choke Marcelo Miranda, five more for trying to attack him again after being pulled away, and two more for the red card he received just moments before the incident.

Pedroso resigned from the Chilean club Rangers* after the match on Saturday and said he was returning to Paraguay.

There’s one on the vanarama ™ conference league circuit. She’s a great ref. Let’s them kick away at each other. Takes no nonsense otherwise. It genuinely must be tougher for her as half the crowd are desperately trying to find fault.
