An offside goal on Sunday, two penalty claims on Wednesday and we are out of two cups!
Yet the responsibility lies with the Arsenal management and it`s playing staff. WHY?
A Ref makes a bad decision and loses a team a game of football, which results in lost revenue, yet they can walk away without any real flack? Is this fair today? Had Arsenal had been given the penalty, we might of scored and gone onto win the game and then a home tie to Man City, more revenue and bonuses etc etc. Yet because Mr 3 Card Poll decided either claim was not a penalty when replays show how clear they were, we lose out and the Ref gets off scott free.
Now I know that they are only human, and mistakes happen, but it just seems in today`s game that more and more is at stake financially and the costs involved to losing out to poor decisions are worse today than when England scored against West Germany in 66.
Is Video replays needed? Do we need the Ref's to take more responsibility? Should we have games relayed or should the Ref's interviewed after the games? Should there be a public table of just how good or bad the Ref`s are.
If you worked for a company, how many bad errors would that company let you make before they sacked you? As a Ref you have cost someone the honour of winning something and also cost them money by your mistake.
It is time Referees are held more responsible for their careless actions.
