He included: “It definitely wasn’t[for swearing] There’s absolutely nothing that can get censored.
” I asked the 4th authorities if they ‘d had handling balls for Christmas and he [the referee] produced a yellow card and stated he was doing his analysis of the laws of the video game.
” I stated, ‘well you need to have begun that earlier in the video game’.
” I believe I got dealt with in a different way to other supervisors there since if any other supervisor really states anything there, I do not believe they get sent for that at all.”
