The FA and their censorship
I'm no fan of Mourinho but when asked about that ridiculous handball decision he wouldn't comment as he would be fined despite his anger being perfectly reasonable

That is ridiculous. Is there any other industry that fines you for giving your opinion (as long as it's not racist, extreme etc).

And why aren't referees and VAR officials held to account? Interviewed by the media in the same way the managers are, forced to explain their decisions.

It's the public that funds football, therefore we're entitled to explanations when senior officials fuck up.

If he were he would have criticised the decision, called out VAR as being shit and those at Stockley Park are clueless and swallowed the fine. It's not that he can't afford it.

There is no way that was a penalty.

Exactly, Geeps. It's nothing less than censorship. I'd be fascinated to find out what would happen if someone challenged them legally to be more transparent.

Why the extra rules?
Probably because football doesn’t want to be in court to resolve things

As said you can’t call a ref a cheat or corrupt but you can say he has made a mistake
Or you can say the law is a load of old cock like Hodgson did
Mourinho is just being a drama queen

Mourinho,

Is an attention seeking cunt.

From his stroppy walk down the tunnel to his post match comments, all part of the act. The man that sees nothing when his players dive.


Like I said, a cunt, and only a cunt would find themselves in agreement with him.

If you actually slander or libel a ref, there's the courts.

Why the extra protection?

Re: The FA and their censorship
Agree though that refs should have mandatory post match interviews like managers do
Before they have a chance to make something up & get their stories straight

Re: The FA and their censorship
I understood managers & others are fined if they question referees integrity.
You are allowed (I presume) to say you think the referee made a mistake or say that you don’t like the current interpretation of handball
What was Mourinho intending to say?

Hodgson complained about the current interpretation. I don’t expect he said anything that will see him fined

Re: The FA and their censorship
Dates from when refs were all but amateurs, who might fuck off if they were criticised.

They're supposed to be professionals now, and are certainly paid like it. So why should they be protected?

Spurs whinging about penalties is irony
