Rob Styles At It Again!

Bleacher ReportCorrespondent IOctober 29, 2008

I was at Bristol City’s home game against Sheffield United last night where “dodgy” ref Rob Styles was the referee for the game. He once again made awful decisions for both sides in addition to the most obvious penalty I have ever seen.

We all know Styles has had many bad games recently. Although we have to “Respect the Ref” in accordance with the FA’s new policy, he has gone too far.

He was demoted due to general lack of professionalism and know how and his terrible decision on Habib Beye for Newcastle United. 

This morning newspapers said, “He was once again causing much controversy."

My question to the Bleacher Report football community is how far do these refs have to go before the “Respect the Ref” campaign becomes ridiculous enough, because some refs are incapable of reffing at the top level?

Where can I comment?
