Referees seem to be very gullible people. They probably have 124 bound editions of the Encyclopedia Britannica at home, buy mops and rags from those dodgy door-knockers with ID tags around their necks, and provide their bank details to Nigerian major-generals.
As for footballers, they're just scummy cheats.
The worst thing about is the vile Man United fans who refuse to admit it was a dive and come up with all kind of utterly terrible excuses, then insult you if you dare question them.
Man United fans (in general) are the Federer fans (in general) of the football world. No offense intended to any on here and I know a few supporters who are great guys, but there are so many who are utter sanctimonious, hypocritical biased pricks, who have the audacity to moan at what doesn't go there way.
The amount of decisions that they get is ridiculous though. The Fulham incident (1-0 up, give away a clear penalty in stoppage time.. ref waves play-on), then QPR (Young offside and dives/theatrical to get penalty at 0-0) and then today. And the worst thing is, the FA refuse to admit any wrong-doing by the piss-poor-incompetent-possibly-corrupt referees.
...sorry about that. Don't really care much about the PL (would obviously prefer someone other than them to win it but if they win it deservedly, then fair enough...) but all the ridiculously awful/biased decisions that go their way get a bit annoying, and the thick/biased fans that refuse to admit these quite blatant cheating (Young) and shocking/corrupt refereeing decisions then will rub it in everyone's face when they win the title (through cheating/horrible refereeing) despite having never even been to OT just get me wound up a little bit.
