  1. Chelsea Fan says:

    it’s a hard job to referee a game but %15 mistakes is not good enough at this level, NBA gets EVERY decision right and basketball is still amazing to watch. Something to consider, i feel like these days it’s the referees that decide who wins games sometimes and could turn out to be crucial decisions that could help a team win the title or make a team get relegated. All this because referees make bad errors, bring technology in to the game!!! I’M TIRED OF CONTROVERSY

    • Dogface says:

      Thanks Chelsea Fan – great comment… we’re told that the controversy just adds to it and makes it better, something to talk about. That’s just spin – it’s missing the point, we want to watch football not fuckups.
