Referees must be held accountable
Saying referees are attention seekers would be an exaggeration. The men and women in the most bizarre attention grabbing Outsurance sponsored uniform are getting adequate attention.
Whistles have been blown against the whistle blowers. Like their outfits- their blunders have never gone unnoticed. Cape Town City coach Benni Mccarthy has sarcastically lambasted, Thando Ndzandzeka, after his side was demolished 4-1 by Kaizer Chiefs last month. McCarthy labelled Ndzandzeka a best performer of the match. Man of the match awards are spared for the best performing player on the day.
Referees decision is final but it is bad when that final decision impacts the outcome of the match. People's jobs are at stake here and PSL has to take action urgently. Coaches are usually called for a disciplinary hearing when they question referees decisions. Why referees get away with murder is a pondering question to many. Referees must be held accountable for their blunders.
