MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

"To discuss whether referees take money or not is the same as discussing a woman who gives herself with no love. ... A woman cheats herself and nature if she gives herself without love. If a referee officiates a game based on his personal love, he commits a cynical crime. ... I respect those referees who take money from two stupid teams and then honestly officiates a game. They do not harm soccer in any way. Though it is bad, still everybody is equal for them."
-- Vladimir Romanov, the Russian-born Lithuanian-based owner of Scottish Premier League club Hearts, rants on referees. Romanov has also taken to calling members of the media "monkeys" and had officials hand out bananas and peanuts to the press before a home game. (BBC)
