Sadly it reflects society which imho is increasingly lashing out at perceived grievances and injustices and of course social media is an easy way to do it. What you may not say to someone's face you may well express on social media and certainly without the restraint. What you do on social media then becomes the norm in public. No longer inhibited, decency and respect goes out of the window. Wayne Barnes this week admitted that he has considered quitting because of the abuse and international rugby referees more generally are very, very concerned at what is happening.
Is it not the case that FIFA has gone into defence mode because of the controversy about the World Cup and access to Collina et al by the media is non existent? Therefore we can never find out why decisions were given with little or no explanation. I would like to think there will be a transparent assessment of the performance of the referees at the tournament - without the personal criticism of any of the officials of course.
As for this business that a foul in some circumstances is not a foul elsewhere on the pitch with an apparent attempt by FIFA to keep play continuing. It would help reduce the rancour if there was an explanation.
