Agression against referee
Posted 06 April 2011 - 10:22 AM
The violent madness that engulfs Egyptian and Algerian footballing relations exploded yet again, this time during Saturday's African Champions League match between Egypt's Zamalek and Tunisia's Club Africain. With Zamalek leading 2-1 in the second leg but still down 5-4 on aggregate, they had a vital late goal disallowed after being ruled offside. The home fans decided to blame the match's Algerian referee and in stoppage time, hundreds of them stormed the pitch.
The match was abandoned as the officials fled the scene and the crazies on the pitch threw stones, lit flares and attacked the players and each other.

I guess we can't blame the old regime for what happened this time

Such as shame because the game of football is so good things like this just ruin the whole thing and have no place any where in the world. I do think you have to respect the referee even if he does make a bad call at times otherwise its just madness and pointless. At the end of the day on the football pitch the referee is the boss and thats the end of it. True football fans get this - not these animals rioting in the video.
