Update On The Ref Slapper. Ref Faces Harsh Punishment

Remember that Indonesian player who slapped the ref from behind? He initially got a life ban from the game for attacking the ref. From behind.

However that was subsequently appealed and the player, who hit the ref from behind, ended up with a 12 month ban.

Now comes news the ref involved in the incident faces a harsher punishment when his case is held. I am not sure what he is being charged with. Perhaps having his back turned on a player who wanted to hit him? Allowing his mouth to bleed too easily? Using a whistle in a built up area?

Don't look for logic 'cos you won't find any. And anyway look at England where the suspensions dished out there in recent years involving the likes of Terry and Suarez defy closer investigation.

Regular readers, both of you, will know I am not one for cynicism. I am a trusting sole who believes everything I read.

And now for something completely different. These are Persiwa's results since that player slapped the ref. From behind.

Pelita Bandung Raya v Persiwa 1-1
Persiwa v Arema 2-2
Persiwa v Gresik United 0-1
Gresik United v Persiwa 1-0
Arema v Persiwa 5-0
Persiwa v Sriwijaya 0-1
Persiwa v Pelita Bandung Raya 1-1

Persiwa P 6 W 0 D 2 L 4 F 1 A 11

Before the incident where the ref was slapped from behind away to Pelita Bandung Raya Persiwa had lost two home games in four and a half seasons. They have now matched that in three weeks.

Please dont turn around and look for me...
