That's really letting him off the hook though. He has always come across as self obsessed, and clearly one of the worst. But to brag about it like this? There is no way he can carry on as a PL ref imo. If the PL/FA and referees association want to retain any credibility they must sack him and make sure that the rest of the refs actually follow the rules. There is NO excuse for this. In fact, is there any law being broken here? Seems to me that at the very least, anyone with money on the game might have a say in this.
