Refereeing Hitlers

Tee hee, Jerry have just been beaten by a Serbian team aided and abetted by a Spanish referee clearly sponsored by the company who manufacture the yellow and red cards. I do so love abysmal referees in these tournaments. I find them to be one of the World Cup's most endearing eccentricities - especially as Mexico enjoy the advantage of having one less shit ref that can take control of their games as the Mexican referee is amongst the very worst of them.

I had concerns early doors that the Saudi referee in charge of Mexico's slaughtering of the French yesterday would destroy the game as a contest after giving Guillermo Franco a yellow card early doors for frowning with intent to snarl and ordering Ricardo Osorio to roll his shirt sleeves down! but in fact he turned out to be OK.

Up until this afternoon it has to be said the worst referee so far in this tournament was Mexican referee Marco Rodriguez who cannot wait to get up in the morning to send someone off. It's usually the latin refs who are the worst as they're all so theatrical and love the attention. Also the refs from small football nations tend to get a little over zealous in order to compensate for their countries diminutive footballing stature.

As a rule of thumb, if the referee has latin blood thrashing through his veins or from a country that has no professional football league I will always bet on there being a sending off. And why not, if it means Germany lose and I make monies, then I'm all for it.
