Every team is yelling. Olympiacos about the penalty against Atromitos, Panionios about the penalty against Olympiacos, PAOK about the penalty against AEL, AEK about refereeing at Xanthi clash, Lamia about the penalty against AEK, Panathinaikos about Kerkyra, AEL about Panathinaikos, etc... So, it is easy to realize that things are going much better than what we were expecting...
There is no corrupted system, no "new boss", everybody can win and lose points from the mistaken decisions of the referees.Even Olympiacos, which destroyed the project with the moves that have been written down at the 250 pages of trial case about the Criminal Organization, won and lost points this season. PAOK have not earned any points this way yet, AEK are protesting after a match in which the opponents were two footballers down at the last 20 minutes, Panathinaikos watched after many years a clear mistake in favor of them. Amazing things are happening!
The reaction of the people who are watching the Criminal Organization being demolished and can not stand that there will be mistakes against everybody is simply a pleasure. It is like watching Jihadists publishing announcement against terrorism.
What happened at Leoforos Stadium was the final point of a generally bad week for Greek refereeing which started at Peristeri, was continued at Nea Smyrni and completed at Panathinaikos' stadium.
However, I am not interested in if there was a penalty in favor of Panathinaikos at Rodrigo Moledo's incident or if there was a disallowed goal against AEL. Me personally and SDNA as well did not fight in the recent past, and it would have been extremelly stupid claiming that, in order to avoid any referee mistakes in the future. We fought against corrupted referees. Trash referees who were doing exactly what they had ordered them, one way and brutally, like hitmen every Sunday. This is over once and fo all!
Nowadays, every team can win or lose points by referee decisions. The corrupted referees have gone home and if there is still one of them, the Central Refereeing Committee knows well what to do. From the 56 matches so far, there are only two in which I am noticing something werid behind the referee decisions. Not the mistaken penalty in favor of Olympiacos in the additional time of Asteras Tripolis home clash, not the penalty PAOK did not win against AEL, not the mistakes at Leoforos Stadium on Monday. If these two referees be appointed again, Central Refereeing Committe's officials will be naive, because they know well who they are and what they did.
Finally, for seven matchdays we feel like we are Europeans once again. It is not something weird, the "big" clubs have always the assistance of refereeing, but sometimes there are also mistakes or even "crimes" against them. But not all the time. Neither Real Madrid, nor Pari Saint Germain, nobody this way. Only Juventus did it with proof in the past and suffered relegation, in order to think about club's relationship with morality and football.
So, there is not standard assistance for any team right now. Every club is almost at the ranking position it belongs. We should reward Central Refereeing Committee for that, there are still some mistakes but it seems that they have the right intention at the referee appointments, while at the same time the Hellenic Football Federation is not being involved in referee issues, because it simply has no right to do that. We were waiting 20 years for the feeling of a normal championship, where any team can win or lose points from the referee mistakes, 20 years to feel that each side can beat the other one and the matches are being played fair and square until their last second!
