'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - 'it was a pen'

Rotherham United were hard done to on Saturday, and not just according to us, the fans, but also a report in today's Star says so too.

A penalty decision, not given by Mr Salisbury, in injury time at the end of the game, would have been given by the other officials there says the report.

'It was ball to hand in front of his face,' said the ref - nearly four thousand Millers fans for what it's worth, the manager and, it seems, the linesmen, disagree with you there.

We also disagree with a decision made earlier in the game which, in effect, led to Chester's equaliser. The ball came off a Chester players leg. The linesman, next to the incident, flagged for our throw in. The referee, near the centre circle, over ruled his linesman and gave the throw in to the visitors. As I said, the ball then ended up in the back of the net for the equaliser.

Yes, I know, what comes around, goes around and Stockport fans are still seething about a decision involving us last weekend and I'm not really arguing about the penalty decision. But surely, if a linesman is nearer an incident than the referee, he has the right to make the decision - otherwise, why have them?

Some might say this sounds like sour grapes - too right it does!
