    Worst decision ever witnessed at Easter Road

    Following on from the best goal thread, I thought it'd be good to do something similar and came up with the worst decision ever witnessed at ER.

    For me and I think the most obvious, John MacDonalds fall in the box to gain Rangers a penalty in the very early 80s (I think?). That decision angered me for a very long, long time!!

    Griffithis non goal or the non hand ball penalty in the play off against Falkirk which had massive implications, penalty given and scored we go up that season

    It's this one because of the positioning of the officials especially the Hearts fan running the line.

    They two immediately jumped out for me. Astonishing decisions that should have saw every member of the officiating teams never get involved in a football game ever again.

    That's the one that sprang to mind for me too. Laursen was trying to get up off the ground when the ball hit him

    Grant Brebner's sending off in the Derby we won 1-0 with a late O'Connor goal was a shambles.

    Going the other way, the decision to give Paul Hanlon's goal when we beat dunfermline 4-0. Think the ball just about bounced on the 6 yard line!!

    Matty Jack getting a penalty against Dundee Utd was a shocker too.

    Not sending Cochrane off after his blatant assault on McGinn is right up there for me.

    Even now it gets worse everytime you see it.

    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.

    Underrated one - the foul on Paul Hanlon in the 0-2 game against Rangers in Championship season 1.

    Never a more baffling non-free kick award I ever did see.

    Surely thatís the only reason that he never gave it? As in, he thought it wasnít over the line

    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.

    Once seen someone buy one of those bright orange pizza slices from the East Stand. Poor chap.

    This has to be it. Absolutely zero explanation for that other than cheating.

    Falkirk playoffs an utter joke as well.

    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.
