Have you seen a team like that even get to the knockout stages in the UEFA Champions League? Especially to the quarter finals or the semi finals?Have you ever seen a Rabotnicki player get a ban extended? Or an Aktobe player? Or a Rubin player? Or a Braga player? Maybe a Metallist Kharkiv player?
All thrown at random, I don't have a clue if they actually have, odds are they haven't. It's simple, people only bring it up because it's Barcelona we're talking about. 'People' seem to be just butthurt and tend to look for something/one to blame other than their teams or a **** referee.
But oh noes, it can't be a **** referee, the referee was picked by UEFA! Conspiracy, conspiracy I tell you!

HAs a team like that already ****** won 1 champions league in a way that is definetely not fair?
No you have ****** not.
It's not a conspiracy, yes it might be just a coincidence that they get through some teams due to badly given red cards...
But seriously? How many times do these coincidences happen? Seems to me a lot of times...
yeah. I though it was excessive at first, but then found he'd already got one before. Not sure what he was thinking though, should have just played the game on the pitch rather than excessive mind gamesHe did? Well in that case it seems fair.
Served one game already, 1 match suspended and then games that were suspended from last year too.
Thing is had he lined up and played like they did second leg they might have taken the tie. When you wind everyone up into a frenzy then play such a combative destructive game, you run the risk of exactly what happened to PepeYeah, he obviously thought that getting into Pep's mind may cause a change of tactics as a 'surprise', but obviously Pep only has one way of playing with no Plan B - so there was never a chance of that happening.
Exactly.. You'd expect someone with the experience and street smart that he has to know that and have a back up plan - which ironically he didn't have either.Thing is had he lined up and played like they did second leg they might have taken the tie.

Hmm yeah, they had a goal in offside, but so did they have an unfair disadvantage in the second leg against Barca when they were left with 10 men... Unfair red card that almost helped Barca go through, hopefully you'll remember that...I picked random, not so big teams noone would care about. But, as you probably know, Braga, for instance, have reached the EL finals. And they probably didn't get any ban extensions.
And if you want to talk about 'fairness', when Porto won the CL Scholes had a legit goal disallowed, when Inter won the CL they had a goal in offside against Barça, and we can go on forever. Referees are **** for everyone.
And this is my final post regarding this issue - I'm beginning to feel arguing with a wall is more productive.
