RADIO: Are Referees Conspiring Against Sundowns?

The Big Issue - Are Referees Conspiring Against Sundowns?

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 15, 2018 08:57 AM
In this episode of the Big Issue, we take a deep dive into the topic of whether referees are against Mamelodi Sundowns. We speak to the people in charge of referee appointments and interrogate their thought process and the systems they use to appoint officials for PSL games. Absa Premiership coaches also have their say on the matter, including their thoughts on the possible introduction of VAR to assist officials. Former PSL referees Charl Theron and Ace Ncobo also add their word on the topic.

I have been following leagues that utilise Video Assistant Refs i.e Bundasliga, SeriaA and Major League Soccer. And I can tell you now it is bad for the game, especially in South Africa where people are reluctant to go to the stadiums. Video Assistant Referees diminish the entertainment value and the naturalness of football and the stoppages are too long. With it, anything that happens in the box is a penalty. Ace is right maybe it should be incorporated in cups only.

@skols ; surely you're a blind clueless idiot who cannot see that Sundowns is a dominant team and a special one for that matter, having rubbed shoulders with the best in the world abo Messi and clearly the PSL refs are always robbing Downs. For you to ask; what is special with Sundowns exposes your idiotness.

I think the Hon. P. Motsepe must scrap the " players and technical staff" share the winnings. That is breeding greediness and that makes people to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Salaries and reasonable incentives should be the order of the day.

1st of all this is nonsense Cowditor. Yes Pitso has a right to complain about poor decisions made by match officials but that doesn't mean you at soccerladuma should run naked here a push a false narrative that Sundowns think referees are against our beloved team. Stop feeding us poison wena

Most of ppl are not happy about our teams progress. Even the media as well is against us. PSL too they try by all means to put Sundowns under pressure.You can find out Sundowns has no game to play while other teams are playing.But we are the team who is coming behind to others with two games in hand.We are watching Our Pitso is right to shout about this problem.

Even if Dunusas are granted permission to select their favorite referee they won't succeed especially with the current squad they've assembled.

Really now? What's so special about Sundowns that the referees can conspire against them? Sundowns just like any other team in PSL have moments where controversial decisions goes against them just the same as they also do benefits from those decisionseeking at times, so what's the fuss about? The sooner they accept that their lady luck has ran out the better
