Griffiths free kick. Honorable mentions also to Alan Freeland for his performance in that game v Falkirk in 2006, and the ref that allowed the Falkirk defender to play basketball at the end of the playoff first leg in 2016.

Thatís the one I thought of (after Griffiths non goal), the ref also gave a penalty for it if my memory serves me right.
The worst incident I remember though was at Partick, not involving Hibs. A goal was scored but rebounded quickly out after hitting the rear stantion. The ref signals play on but meanwhile the defender had picked up
the ball (in his penalty box) and booted it down the park. Play on, incredible!

I heard the linesman told James McPake that it was not over the line when he asked him why it wasn't given. That is even worse.
He then leaked to the press that he didn't see it.
A liar either way.
The Falkirk players' multiple handball offences in the space 1.5 seconds in the playoff. So costly for Hibs. Could see it was handball from the south end of the East Stand. Ludicrous that some pundits sided with the ref on that one.
McNamara being adjudged to have given a penalty away with tackle on Tommy Burns at Parkhead. We collapsed to a 3-0 defeat. So obviously not a penalty.
Did that idiot hun goalkeeper McGregor not throw himself to the deck like he'd been punched by Mike Tyson getting Riordan booked or sent off? Something telling me it was the game we opened the new east stand.
Surely thatís the only reason that he never gave it? As in, he thought it wasnít over the line
Well it was obvious to me, a good 15 yards further from the goal than the linesman, that it was well over. If his eyesight is that bad he shouldn't be anywhere near officiating at a game. Either that or he's a cheat.
