I’m watching the Gala/Atletico game in the Europa league…and I see a third and fourth official behind each team’s goals(i never knew they existed:eek:)…what exactly is their role? To see whether the ball crossed the line? A 4th and 5th eye for the ref perharps?

Well a few minutes ago a Galatasary attempt on goal was foiled by a blatant handball by a Athletico player…well the 3rd official chose to ignore it or didn’t ‘see it’…so what is the point of this official? Can he make a decision independent of the ref?

IMHO he is a waste of time…either have video evidence or eliminate them…

Yep, they simply ate Gala's penalty at the most important time in the game.

4 refs aren't enough I guess. Or maybe they just didn't want to whistle it, who knows.

Pretty sad way to go out..

****ing dumb shit to put officials there, imo we need 20 linesmen for offsides distributed everywhere around the press boxes, in helicopters, etc. No one cares about ball crossing the line or not, almost never in doubt

made a thread about this a while ago...
its so frustrating how much of a failure the 4th and 5th refs are... this is not the first big mistake theyve made too... ridiculous
