I know you lot don't really care about me and my A-League tucked down here but I'd like your opinion on something.

Probably the highlight of a game full of absolutely awful calls which also saw an off-side goal being awarded and two on-side goals being disallowed, this bit of theatrics from Adelaide Reds player Jeronimo Neumann apparently was convincing enough to make the ref determine that this was a likely goal, (despite the keeper comfortably making the ball before Neumann,) and give Ben Sigmund, (the guy two or three steps behind Neumann,) a red card.

My question is whether this sort of embarrassing officiating would be tolerated in any other league. This was the same ref who oversaw last year's Grand Final and made another bass-aackwards call that decided the game.

Makes me sad.

Officiating in the A-League is becoming notoriously poor now. A lot of football games have a bit of a controversial call, possibly two, most of them can be called 45:55 calls that just went the wrong way. The A-League refs are getting it obviously wrong time and time again and the FFA and teams don't really want to voice it because they feel it shouldn't be happening. Just because it shouldn't be happening isn't a reason to ignore it. To have four obvious and provably wrong game-deciding calls in one match is a bit much.

The Phoenix are challenging Sigmund's red card with the FFA, be interesting to see what they come up with and whether they take any action against Jeronimo for being a cheating twatweasel.

Not quite a fifty-fifty challenge, I guess.

Yeah, something that's a pretty close call but on later consideration could be determined to go one way. I can forgive a ref for that.

Okay so new rage:

The A-League's match review panel met to address the dual issue of the allegation against Jeronimo for diving and the challenge to Sigmund's red card by the Phoenix.

Can you guess what they decided?

Despite the absolute obviousness of the dive that the commentators picked up on at the time, despite the media reporting that Jeronimo would likey get a two match ban for simulation, despite... despite everything they decided to uphold the referee's decision. This means Jeronimo gets away scott free and Sigmund will face a one match ban for the red card.

I honestly don't know what's going on. I'm starting to see the sense in the theory from some that the A-League is weighted against the sole New Zealand team in the competition because they fear the Australian public's reaction to the New Zealand team being successful. I can't see how they reached their decision on this. If I had to guess I'd suggest that Football Federation Australia has far more concern for the image of Adelaide's star import than they do for running a fair competition. I hope this lasts a long time in the A-League spotlight. It's wrong and it needs to be fixed.

I think that's one of the key problems. Everyone's very excited this year that players like Emile Heskey and Alessandro Del Piero are playing in our little southern hemisphere competition and officials are making sure to cast them in the best possible light, even to the extent of treating them favourably. Jeronimo is Adelaide's key new import this year and it would be terrible for Jeronimo's image if he was disciplined for being the cheating bastard he is. The A-League is far more concerned for their image than running a fair competition. Because things like diving and shithouse refereeing shouldn't happen they pretend as though it doesn't. I'm not sure if it's a successful tactic in bringing in interest for football but it's quickly making a lot of football fans pissed off.
