Well firstly you i have never 'attacked ' a ref,never seen one get 'attacked ' in a very very long time and thousands of matches,and anyone who does should be prosecuted .
I made millions of mistakes playing football and fully accept refs and linesmen do honestly and its a tricky job,but i never made a mistake with an agenda attached to it ,which all refs do at all levels ,in other words cheating.
Now you may say footballers cheat ,i would say ok but its order to gain an advantage ,maybe not sporting but
All refs cheat ,for any number of reasons ,but not to gain an advantage,i have heard many refs admit this.Its because they can.
Few give up their time for the love of the game ,90% are in it for money ,which is not insignificant ( depending on your wealth) esp as many ref several games a weekend. More so in amateur and kids football where the players dont get paid ,its a disgrace.
I dont agree with the pace of the modern game excuse ,Stevie Wonder could have seen De Jongs karate kick in the WC final ,H Webb had an agenda just one of a million examples .
My main point is that at all levels the maj of refs havnt kicked a ball in anger,they have kid refs now at 14 year old !!!!!!! Unbelievable.
Last nights game was probably one of the most baffling reffing football has ever seen,forget the offsides ,although the same official flagged for Ledenwoski when through on goal a clear onside ,but ignored Ronaldos goal clear offside ??? Not even difficult spots.Why would you give a yellow card for an innocusious foul in the 3 rd min ,then totally ignore a dozen more similar incidents ,most from the same player.
Video evidence will help ,but they will even get that wrong.
I totally agree regarding reffing at different levels,offside in a game with no linesmen is just guessing and should be scrapped, but they dont want to relinquish the authority ,i have questioned it at county level.( in fact I would scrub offside altogether ,another thread)
My answer is all refs should have played at least to a level near to the level they are reffing,kids football should be reffed by adults,at CL and Prem standard that means paying them accordingly ,they know the cheats ,they will have a better understanding of a deliberate game changing fouls and a foul in an honest attempt to get the the ball.
No refs get paid if the players dont.Scrap the useless officilas stood behind the goal ,really how they continue with this is incredible.
Bayern should force an inquiry to the game last night.
It will come soon when a team will walk off in protest,and i wouldnt blame them.
