Didn't know where to post this so this is as good a topic as any.

SA played Brazil last night in Sao Paulo and lost 1.0 to a late penalty, the talking point this morning was not the penalty or even the game but the fact that the referee used some kind of spray to mark out the 10 yard line that the players had to stand behind for the free kick to be taken.
It made the refs job a lot easier.

The line on the field would disapear after a few minutes.

Anybody seen this before?

Dave, I heard somewhere that any member who posts on a topic which has laid dormant for more than 6 years get his name put in a hat in a yearly draw for a free "I Love Glasgow" T shirt. tongue.gif
That referee should be sent one anyway for using the heid. biggrin.gif

I haven't seen it, but i heard the commentators on the The Rangers v Elgin City match discussing it last weekend, it seems to be a Brazilian experiment, i would like to see it applied here.

But the ten yard line of a six foot ref would be much farther from the scene than that of a four foot ref, wouldn't it ?

Don't follow your logic Tombro.

10 yards is 10 yards ?

Unless he has a bliddy big tape measure, and giganormous compass, the only way he can mark it out, is by using his stride length.

THEE I don't think its right your suggestion - especially when we still dont even know who posted the 400k post yet?!

Naw !!!!!.

The rules say 10 yards and 10 yards is 10 yards not 10 paces of a midget ?

Conclusion-- If someone cannot pace out ten yards then by defination they cannot become a Ref. smarty pants tongue.gif .

Motherwell 0 Hibs 1.
Great goal I think the guy was Wotherspoon, but Motherwell were robbed, the ball was well over the line before the Hibs goalie played it out with his hand.
Score should be 1-1, and Motherwell have a wee edge play wise, wont be surprise if Motherwell tie it up in the second half.

Motherwll 0 Hibs 4. Final
Almost looks like Motherwell didnae come oot at halftime and I widnae blame them, it sure looked cauld in Scotland.
However they got a penalty to score and Higdon missed it.
Leigh Griffiths of Hibs got two penalties and scored both, he looks no a bad player!

Dont referees punish obstruction any more?
I am watching Mozambique V Ghana and a Mozambican defender blatantly obstruct a Ghana forward and in doing it falls in front of the forward.
Result a foul given against the forward?

Well it is the beautiful game of multi millionaire African corruptors and their paymasters from Europe!

How can you ever watch a game played with pass around millions and know you are watching anything approaching honesty. Was probably the "Hand of God" making his contribution.
