It may or may not be coincidental these have been comfortably the worst games of the tournament to date....
Have to agree with you . Although the Egyptian ref of Aus v Jap should probably not be designated for the next round for fear of causing more and more controversy .
Any one can err, but to be insecure in their error is far greater offence , IMHO. He will be under even more pressure in subsequent rounds and will struggle to gain player respect in the way he has gone on both during the game and after, IMO.
