Black mark for today's referee Craig Thomson
« on: August 04, 2018, 17:41:44 »
I have put this in a separate thread as it has nothing to do with how Ayr or Partick played today. Nor is the black mark for any decisions during the game. Today's game kicked off slightly before four minutes to three. I was in by 2.40, so I was fine. But quite a number of supporters must still have been queuing to get in and been in by 3.00. They had paid their money and were entitled to see the full ninety minutes. This simply shouldn't have happened and the referee is solely to blame. Mr Craig Thomson, hang your head in shame.

Thought my watch was wrong when our first goal was announced as 9 minutes but my watch said 3.05 !
Also left my seat in the stand to watch the last few minutes in the SRE but the whistle went when I was in the back of the stand, had to run down the stairs to applaud the players before they left the pitch !
I take it the 'Flag ceremony' was over quicker than expected , despite the flag refusing to unfurl !

Aye the game should have kicked off at 3, paying customers deserve that at least...

Same thing happened at St Midden - folks queuing to get in and game kicked off at 2.55. Apparently a champions thing - maybe explain it to the clubs who don't win championships very often so as they can tell the punters

To be fair the club did tell people to get to the ground early for the flag raising at 2.45.
Anyway that's one problem I'm more than happy to have !
