A bad result for Hibs was made worse after having Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson sent off by referee Alan Freeland. The whistler had what can only be described as a shocker, he booked nine and sent off four in-between missing just about everything that mattered. I think he must be a rich man now as I can only assume he had put his house on Falkirk winning this match. At the risk of sounding like a sore looser which generally I am not, right from the first decision he was out to give Hibs nothing but yellow and red cards.
I have seen various polls held on this Blog covering diving cheating etc. I would like to know peoples thoughts on whether referees should be castrated for ruining a potentially good football game?
I think there maybe some more to come out of this match, whether it is punishment for Hibs or the Referee will be an interesting point.
In midweek Hibs beat Gretna 6-0 in the League Cup, their reward is a home quarter final tie against Hearts our Edinburgh rivals. Lets hope Freeland is not the ref. At the end of last season Feeland refereed Hibs last league match, he sent off two Hibs players and booked six. Sound familiar?
Guess it is time to drown my sorrows.
