Thread: How Corrupt are Our Referees

  1. #1

    Default How Corrupt are Our Referees

    Having been a bear since the fifties, I now believe there is more to what's going on with our Referees. Since we were put down we have literally witnessed decisions that have defied all rules of football nearly every week. People come out with the phrase that Refs are only human and make mistakes, what we have had to suffer is beyond a joke, and makes me wonder. Are they a certain persons luckies?

    They don't think they are corrupt. They just go with the flow...

    Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome.

    Beat me to it. They are shit scared of rocking the boat and losing their jobs so just toe the party line. Today's performance was the worst refereeing display I have ever seen in my 36 years of watching football

    They are not corrupt, it's just a combination of being grossly incompetent and being fearful of Peter and his Cabal.

    I have always held the belief that if you're good enough then the referee won't matter. However after witnessing the decisions today I know that's not always the case. I think referees find it easier to give decisions against us as whilst we'll be angry at wrong decisions we generally move on and get on with it. If decisions are wrongly given which affect Celtic the media and fans have it as some sort of conspiracy. Then if you remember Dougie McDonald changing his mind at a penalty decision affecting Celtic he was hounded from refereeing by the media and Celtic yet Craig Thompson changes his mind on a penalty decision for Rangers and not a word spoken about it, he actually went on to referee in the champions league.

    To my mind todays referee was bent . Furthermore , He has a poor track record preceeding todays 'weird' happenings as pedro caixinha termed them .

    This referee has to be finished imo .

    Just has to be .

    Nothing to do with corrupt IMO, they are just f*cking horrendous at their jobs. If I was a scottish football referee id be totally embarrassed for my profession after than c*nts performance today. Its the worst ive ever seen from a referee at any level

    He should be demoted to referee kids matches for the rest of the season. He'll be back in his place next week though to make more horrific mistakes.

    Your defence of referees is boring now.
    If Beaton gave these decisions against the tramps his life would be a misery and you and he both know that.
    He is a coward and a spineless cheat.
    I hope if he has bluenose neighbours then tell the spineless runt what they think of him.
    Non violent of course.

    They're terrified of making a wrong decision against Celtic as the fallout is massive with an onside media joining in allowing airtime to conspiracy theories

    This along with the intimidation from Celtic as a football club makes it all the harder for a ref if there's any doubt

    Imo the majority of 50-50 decisions go Celtic's way and you only need to look at the amount of off the ball assults by the Celtic captain that get ignored by our officials and media alike

    Not sure corrupt is the word I'd use but to a man they're shit scared of upsetting one club , that can't be denied

    The bigot liar in the away dugout got refs flown in from Israel and Cyprus for a lot less than what we got today.

    Stokes sent off?
    McGeough sent off?
    McGregor sent off?

    last week Moult sent off?

    last night, Biton penalty?

    In in one week 5 decisions that could affect us.

    oh forgot, Jack got sent off for nothing, result for the ref.

    That chap today was a disgrace, it was like he had been pre-conditioned himself beforehand to ensure he did not upset his SFA paymasters. Is he corrupt? I don't know about that but the SFA certainly are.

    Beaton should not be given the opportunity of being corrupt in any of our games again. He ruined the game today.

    Moult's just wasn't a sending off

    Should Cousin have had a straight red card for his elbow. or just a yellow?

    Not at all, eg: No one would have batted an eyelid if Jack wasn't sent off, no one, cheat pure and simple.
