The one that’s triggered here is you Earl. You’re following me around like “a wee lap dug” 🤣
Still struggling with how an Internet forum works eh? Just an FYI, you post on a thread, it pops in new posts, d’oh. And yes you are still triggered, quite embarrassing really. Even the EPL fan boys don’t go on about referees or penalties as much as you do.

In the EPL referees have to declare their club allegiance and aren't allowed referee games involving that team. That is not the case in the SPL.

I don't know any ex-EPL referees who take part in fundraisers for EPL teams do you? It happens with a particular team in the SPL.

In the EPL if the head of referees comes out and criticizes the awarding of a goal because of a (marginally) incorrect off-side decision, then he'd be likely to do so irrespective of the team involved and would criticize other similar incidents. Crawford Allan gave an interview on one recent case but ignored a number of others.

If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then more and more it seems likely that there's a duck involved there somewhere 😜

I stopped after referees so no rebuttal needed. Same old, same old, whinge, moan about them, embarrassing.

You haven't a clue and just try to apply epl standards of conduct on how things go in the SPL. That's not what happens in real life Earl.

Could you imagine if a former England international manager said when he was managing an EPL club that a ref who was a fan of a different EPL team, requested and got to ref that epl team in a competitive league match and that the ref got at least 6 important things wrong? Or when the ref admitted after the game (the ref's team won btw) that he'd made some crucial mistakes the ref was told to "stuff the apology".

Even in amateur sports like the GAA they don't allow refs ref their own team. Imagine what Cork would have to say if the next Cork v Tipperary Munster Final was reffed by a Tipp ref - and that's just in amateur!
