    FIFA drops refs who made biggest mistakes

    PRETORIA, South Africa – The World Cup’s worst referees were sent packing on Tuesday as soccer’s governing body tried to cut down on the glaring errors that have plagued the tournament.

    Koman Coulibaly, the referee who gained notoriety for controversially denying the United States a potential game-winning goal against Slovenia in the group stage, was sent back to Mali without having refereed another match since his glaring mistake 11 days ago.
    The 10 referees deemed to be the worst in the tournament were excluded from the final list of elite officials who will be in contention to take charge of the all-important quarterfinal rounds onward.

    All 10 packed up their things from the secret refereeing base near Pretoria – where the officials have lived in isolation since the start of the World Cup – and were due to catch flights home either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

    Hours after the USA 2-2 draw with Slovenia that Coulibaly would not be allowed to referee another match, and so it transpired.
    Also on the list of those axed was Uruguay’s Jorge Larrionda, who committed the most high-profile mistake of the event by denying England’s Frank Lampard a goal against Germany, even though his strike landed more than two feet over the goal line.

    Another referee to be sent home was Stephane Lannoy of France, a leading European official who was originally expected to take charge of key matches late in the tournament. But Lannoy’s fate was sealed when he sent off Brazil’s Kaka against the Ivory Coast for an innocuous challenge. So too was that of Italian Roberto Rosetti, who allowed Argentina’s hotly disputed first goal against Mexico in the round of 16.
    The cuts are part of FIFA’s bid to drastically improve refereeing standards after a series of incidents that infuriated fans, players and coaches alike.

    “Naturally we deplore it when we see the evidence of referees’ mistakes,” FIFA president Sepp Blatter said. “Our goal is to improve the overall quality.”

    Sepp Blatter is the one who needs to get the boot.

    World Cup 2010: Blunder referees sent home for rest of tournament

    • Jorge Larrionda failed to award England after ball crossed line
    • Roberto Rosetti allowed Argentina offside goal to stand

    The Uruguayan Jorge Larrionda, who refused to award a clear England goal, and the Italian Roberto Rosetti, who allowed an offside Argentina goal to stand, were the two most high-profile names to leave the tournament at this stage.
    England went on to lose 4-1 but at the time of Frank Lampard's disallowed goal were 2-1 down.
    Mexico were drawing 0-0 on Sunday evening before Carlos Tevez's offside header was given.

    Lampard blunder referee goes home

    JOHANNESBURG — Four referees who found themselves at the centre of embarrassing World Cup blunders left for home on Tuesday after failing to make the shortlist for the remainder of the tournament.
    Uruguay's Jorge Larrionda, the man who missed Frank Lampard's 'goal' in England's 4-1 defeat to Germany, is on the hit-list.

    Italian official Roberto Rosetti, who allowed Carlos Tevez's header to stand despite the Argentinian striker being offside against Mexico, is also heading home.
    France's Stephane Lannoy and Koman Coulibaly of Mali also missed out on the list of 19 referees released by FIFA to officiate from the quarter-finals onwards.
    Lannoy missed the double handball of Brazil striker Luis Fabiano in the build-up to his goal against Ivory Coast while Coulibaly disallowed Maurice Edu's late strike which would have given the USA a 3-2 win over Slovenia.
    Referees retained:
    Rashan Irmatov (UZB), Yuichi Nishimura (JPN), Khalil Al Ghamdi (KSA), Jerome Damon (RSA), Eddy Maillet (SEY), Carlos Alberto Batres (GUA), Marco Rodriguez (MEX), Benito Archundia (MEX), Carlos Simon (BRA), Hector Baldassi (ARG), Oscar Ruiz (COL), Pablo Pozzo (CHI), Michael Hester (NZL), Viktor Kassai (HUN), Olegario Benquerenca (POR), Howard Webb (ENG), Wolfgang Stark (GER), Alberto Undiano (ESP), Franck De Bleeckere (BEL)

    Mimi sioni hata umuhimu wa hao marefa kurudishwa nyumbani wakati tayari damage ilishafanyika kwa timu husika. Refa aliyekubali goli la offside anaweza kuwa alichangia kuwafungisha virago Mexico, maana ndio lilikuwa goli la kwanza la Argentina, so liliwa-demoralize wa-Mexico kwa kiasi fulani na wakajikuta wana-panic.

    Huyo aliyekataa goli la Lampard pia aliwaumiza England kwa kuwa lilikuwa ni goli la kusawazisha, kama goli lile lingekubaliwa may be vijana wa England wangeweza kupata morali, lakini unapoona goli limeingia kabisa na bado linakataliwa inakatisha tamaa kwa kiasi kikubwa sana na unaweza ku-conclude kwamba may be refa anawapendelea timu pinzani kwa makusudi na hivyo hata mfanye juhudi gani hamuwezi kushinda.

    Dawa ya matatizo hayo waanze kutumia replay, na tena inachukua just a few seconds kuona yupi mwenye haki. Yaani unaona timu nzima wanakuwakia bado unakomaa tu?

    Blatter kama ataendelea kugoma kutumia teknologia ya replay, atakuwa na nia ya kuzibeba timu ambazo zimekuwa zikipendelewa maana sometimes officials (marefa) wengi huwa wanaweza kuingia uwanjani na hisia negative kwa timu flani na hivyo kushindwa kutenda haki ipasavyo. Lakini akiona replay ataona aibu na pia inamshitaki kama ataendelea kushikilia msimamo ambao siyo sahihi.

    Unajua goli la lampard kidogo anaweza kusema hakuona, alilile la kuotea la argentina. Sasa lili la USA liliokataliwa na yule refa wa mali hivi anweza kujiteteaje? Maana yeye alitumia kibur tu kulikataa hakuna sababu yoyote.
