No matter how surprising it may sound, but with almost the same message, Atlético Madrid, unfairly condemned once again, addressed not so long ago all the clubs in La Liga, except Barcelona and Real Madrid, of course, this tandem in the Spanish championship. plays the role of the Russian “Zenith”. But unsurprisingly most of the participants have ignored this proposal so far, La Liga boss Javier Tebas knows his business: he remains a fan of authoritarian schemes. So the Spanish decided to wait a little longer, but they can afford it: they have fans who regularly fill the stadiums and carry out performances and actions in support of their teams and against the arbitrariness of the judges. The leadership of the local judiciary does not change the interpretation of the rules every year. In the end, now La Liga has a “Negreira affair” – it is quite difficult to imagine such a thing in the Russian championship. We will not be accused of an influential and wealthy club; at most they will put the judge on a polygraph and be banned for life, no matter what the lie detector shows.
In general, Ms. Salikhova knows what she is talking about. All Premier League teams can afford is protests.
– If the judges continue to do what happened with Martins and Tyukavin, then we must remove the players from the field, refuse to continue the game, – Feduna’s wife suggested.
In fact, it seems that there are no other levers of influence yet. Putting every judge who screwed up on a polygraph is not enough of a polygraph. And they will not raise the level of professionalism of Russian referees. In 2020, Zarema’s husband, Leonid Fedun, already tried to radically solve the problem with our referees: he threatened to remove Spartak from the championship, arguing that he was tired of participating in this antics. But he did not dare to take that step: the problem of the referees does not start on the field, but at the top, in the ESC.
The RPL has played only two rounds since the championship resumed after the winter break, and how many refereeing errors have already occurred and two referees took leave without pay until the end of the season: Anton Frolov and Evgeny Kukulyak. There were still enough referees for the 18th round, but by the 19th, Vitaly Meshkov and Sergey Ivanov were on the bench due to mistakes in the previous stage, Yan Bobrovsky withdrew due to health problems.
In the 20th round, the choice became even smaller: for example, Vladislav Bezborodov, who worked in the game Spartak – Fakel (3: 2), and Vitaly Meshkov, who was not called up from the bench after the match, did not receive appointments Spartak” – “Ural” (2:2). But the head of the RFU Referee Committee Pavel Kamantsev remains optimistic. The teams are not on strike, the salaries of judges have been increased, which means that everything is under control. And, no matter how Zarema Salikhova urged the clubs “not to chew snot”, it is unlikely that something will change dramatically overnight: the inhabitants of the elite division are clearly not ready for pose or join in. After all, as you know, “all happy families are the same, and every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
