Would love to hear his reasoning for not giving the McGinn penalty

McGeouch got no protection at all today and I lost count at the amount of times a Falkirk player kicked the ball away in order to waste time

Another toothless refereeing performance that benefited the rangers

I posted on anothr thread there was a blatant push seconds before the incident where the penalty was given that night so don't feel like we got anything wrongly.
This is also the ref who gave Falkirk possession in the semi at Hampden to score the deciding goal.

I think it was one of those that is so obvious no-one feels the need to appeal The ref didn't have too many decisions to make. He made a few errors without much consequence but refs are judged on the big decisions. He got this one 100% wrong and there appeared to be nothing that could stop him making the right call barring complete incompetence or bias.

[QUOTE=Sergey;4550670]Other than the penalty shout, I think the ref pretty much called every other decision correctly.[/QUOTE

Some of the decisions given around the pitch these days are absolutely tragic. My problem is that these are given for very little, sometimes nothing, yet in the box in needs to be a GBH to get a penalty. The refs need to STOP blowing up for every single contact during the game outwith the box. It's killing the game. It takes some teams 20-30 seconds to take a free kick and the crowd just can't get going. If a few tackles are allowed to be made games will just flow better and the crowd can start to enjoy it.

Problem is that everyone has accepted this as normal and its not. Oh and by everyone I mean managers, commentators, co-commentators, players and now fans (listen to fans shout for ANYTHING now).

Why do Hibs get so few of these decisions? If it had been Rangers I can't help thinking it would be given without hesitation.

You must certainly be at it to think that wasn't a stonewall penalty. The Falkirk player virtually looks as if he has wrapped his legs round McGinn's to bring him down. Got hardly any of the ball and should have been a pen.

Already been said but there was clear penalty seconds before the McGinn incident. FWIW from end we were in at the game, it looked like a clear assault on McGinn as well.

If that's not a stonewall penalty then I don't know what is.

In his interview Alan said he'd discussed it with the ref and doesn't understand his decision. Presumably he let us play an advantage, that would have been an astounding reason....

Maybe the incorrect sending off of McGinn in the ER game last month was the thing that evened up the pen from the first game against them. Over three matches against Falkirk, we've had game changing decisions against us in two, which arguably have cost us four points.

The whole stand certainly didn`t make loud claim, but from my angle I was staggered that we didn`t get it. I overheard a few fans heading out passing on text messages received notifying that it should have been a penalty, so it wasn`t clear and obvious to every Hibs fan in the ground.

Every time ive seen Beaton he has been poor and i thought today was no exception.

Penalty decision aside....he let Falkirk players continually kick the ball away, one of which was the most blatant booking you could get. His positioning as well seems dodgy. Yet again today he got in the way of the ball and seemed oblivious to the time wasting tactics at one nil.

The goalkick he gave at the end looked like a blatant hibs corner although i havent seen it on tv.

SunshineOnLeith
17-01-2016, 08:18 PM
I thought he had a good first half, although both teams were so inept there wasn't much for him to do.

Second half he lost the plot, though. Penalty decision an obvious shocker, but even discounting that the number of unnecessary freekicks he awarded in the middle of the pitch destroyed any flow the game had, it was a classic example of a ref spoiling a game by making himself the centre of attention. Half of the freekicks Falkirk were getting in the last 20 minutes, their players weren't even appealing for!

brog
17-01-2016, 08:31 PM
John McG was far too honest with the pen, as all the TV commentators agreed, they were also 100% sure it was a pen. The only thing slightly strange about the incident was that it was almost like watching a slomo replay in real time. The Falkirk player has made his challenge but at the same time JMcG has moved the ball further away from the tackle. On grass, the tackler could possibly put the brakes on, on icy artificial he clatters into John for the clearest pen you'll ever see.
Anyone trying to say it wasn't a pen, just ask one question, would it have been awarded to Sevco or Celtc!

Was a pen from where I was sitting, you get some you don't get others. Indifferent to the refs performance today. Thought we were poor today until Henderson came on and must say I was surprised Keatings started. Bottom line we should have played better today, if we had we'd have won easy regardless of the ref.

He was swayed by Houston banging on about the penalty from the last time.

That and the fact that McGinn tried to stay in his feet - you need to fall down to get a penalty.

Why do we keep listening to Houston by saying the penalty was dodgy? We were denied a stonewaller seconds before so there was nothing dodgy about it! We had to play 50 minutes, wrongly, with 10 men at home and this was as blatant a penalty as you will ever see today!

Hibs were by far the better side today, first half both sides were poor and no surprise it was 0-0, but for 40 out of 45 second half minutes Hibs battered Falkirk, missed a great chance with Cummings, a stonewall penalty, and 3/4 good half chances that just didn't fall, as well as there keeper making 1 or 2 cracking saves!

We all know no referee will ever get every decision correct. But it's the number of crucial decisions they are getting wrong that needs to be looked at, and which I find hard to just meekly accept. If supporters don't say anything, we can expect more of these s*** decisions to continue.

All clubs, from time to time, are on the end of terrible decisions. Some more than others though it seems to me. Maybe I'm looking at things through the green tinted glasses, but Hibs seem to be on the wrong end of these crucial decisions far more often than we are on the right end.

The penalty decision was the inevitable result of the amount of simulation in the game. Players throw themselves to the ground at the slightest hint of contact and expect to be given a foul.

In this case McGinn made the "mistake" of trying to stay on his feet rather than screaming in agony as he plunged to the turf, which would confuse a good referee, never mind a Scottish one.

Refuse to give him credit he was awful in the semi final including intercepting play twice also and wasnt particularly great in the play off game at ER where Rangers reffed the game. Yesterday Sibbald clearly kicked the ball away twice with a cosy little chat rather than the yellow card which should certainly have happened when it happened twice. The penalty decision was I am afraid an absolute shocker to miss given he was 6 yards away. Unacceptable bearing in mind the importance of it.

Also remember this clown turned the game at Ibrox when we were outplaying them in the Petrofac when he sent off Handling for at best a yellow challenge. Also gave the highly dubious goal against Albion Rovers at Ibrox, bit of a pattern emerging.

Often when you get a strong penalty claim in front of that club's big support, the referee can be convinced he is making the correct call if the whole stand is on it's feet claiming for the spot kick. The fact the whole stand didn't shows it wasn't immediately obvious to us, but it is not really much of an excuse to be fair for John Beaton's error of judgement as he was in a good position to view the offence.

The league will not be decided on one decision or ref's performance, but when the league is as tight as it is, individual decisions like these will be enough to decide the champions.

12 penalties for The Rangers is utterly ridiculous, irrespective of their perceived "direct approach". Is there any other team in the UK with more ?

I despair of Hibs Net sometimes. Last season Celtc had a shocking decision given against them & they called for everything except a judicial inquiry over the penalty they didn't get. A season earlier we had if anything 2 worse decisions given against us when playing our rivals. LG's goal, clearly well over the line & Jordon's goal at PBS, about 3 yards onside but disallowed. Those 2 decisions arguably cost us staying up. Now we have a stonewaller of a pen not given & Hibs fans come on here to say, well we could have conceded one vs Sevco or, we got a soft one last time. Those same fans will then complain that our team lacks the mental will & strength to triumph in the big games!
Seriously, can you imagine any poster on an OF or Yams site defending the ref in these circumstances? The team on the field & the fans in the stand need to be professional & forthright in ensuring we receive fair treatment. Not cheating, not howling for everything but not sitting on our hands while ludicrous decisions go against us! Rant over, support our team!

Seriously!

Some folk believe because we got a soft penalty in the past, that in some way should be evened out by the referee yesterday getting it 100% wrong.

Stubbs clearly felt aggrieved. Anyone who seen the penalty claim from mulitple angles will be hard pushed to convince anyone who has also seen it from more than one angle that it was not a stonewaller. It was. Not "hibs.net" fact - real fact based on the fact a player was brought down in the box, the ball was gone and it was a ****ing lunge!!!! FACT!!

If you dont see that as a stonewaller and in this case, a game changer, you need to forget specsavers and get a nurological assessment....as for the impact that would make at this point in the season........couple of points more to us, **** all to our nearest rival and breathing right back down the necks of rangers.

It was a penalty. It was crucial. It could have made the difference and we could have had 2 more points and falkirk one less. Moreover, it SHOULD have been given....

Don't think the refs decision was the worst mistake on Saturday.

1 Cummings allowing goalie to save

2 Malonga header-open goal

The thread is about the poor decisions made by the referee not mistakes made by our coach or players.

PS the game was Sunday not Saturday (;

Could only be when he had a header near the back post, you know, the one where there was no pace on the cross, up against a centre half, strongly challenged and about 10 yards out beyond the back post! Can't believe he missed either! The mind boggles at some peoples stupidity!

AH, I often enjoy your posts but I find it hard to match your version of events with what I saw on Sunday. IMO the only error a Hibs player could have made which would have equalled Beaton's would have been if Jason had missed the goal he scored! More pertinently there's already several threads with in excess of 30 pages dissecting & analysing our performance. Why come on a thread about the Ref & take the opportunity to put the boot into our team again? Now that even Houston has recanted I hope you're not Beaton's only supporter in claiming he got the decision right!

Merely pointing out that the referee made a very bad mistake but there were lots of others and his mistake wasn't necessarily the one that cost us the game.Not aware I'm in the habit of putting the boot into the team.All comment is fair if sincerely held -even the poster above who thinks I'm stupid:greengrin

I agree wholeheartedly that the club should stand up to the injustices and we should support them. However, remember prior to the 2012 cup final our chairman did say that we didn't want CT in charge. What did we get? A great big **** you from the SFA and a great big ****ing over from CT. To add insult to injury they gave him our first game the following season. We'll get SFA from the SFA while they are based in the 19th century.

Broq appeared to be referencing the support rather than the club. And we should all kick up **** at every opportunity. Where the club though, failed in 2012, IMHO, was by not continuing the displeasure after Thomson was appointed and continuing it after the event. And every time he came in our midst thereafter. BTW, If we were all in the 19th Century you can bet your bollox Hibernian would be causing uproar. Thomson and his entourage would have been chased out the ground fearing for their lives. And may never have come back.

The noise coming out of Easter Road about that decision (and other decisions) at Falkirk on Sunday should be deafening. And it should get the support of everyone on here. It shouldn't be some of our own getting their post count up by sniping about how soft we are. Especially if they can't be arsed turning up.
We were cheated.

Well you actually said the ref's mistake was not the worst & provided 4 examples which inferred they were all worse than the ref's howler. Hopefully by now you've had a rethink re those comments.
