What's going on?

Khune took to Twitter to vent his frustrations after receiving two yellow cards. Referee Phillip Tinyane booked the goalkeeper twice in quick succession - once for time wasting and once for dissent. The referee was spot on with his decision, as both are yellow card offences. However, Khune slammed the referee and demanded that the league's governing body, the Premier Soccer League, do something about the state of affairs in the local game.

Who said what?


While the standard of refereeing has been pretty rubbish this season in South Africa, Khune has no leg to stand on. If he had not acted like a child for being booked for time wasting, he would not have been booked for dissent - which is the act of showing excessive displeasure with a referee's decision. Yes, the Tweets would have come out when Khune was angry, but that is no excuse, as he is solely to blame. For once, the referee was in the right - just don't tell Pitso Mosimane.
