Mauri and Foggia did the same (not talking about the penalty on Zàrate) and after the game did not refrain from telling that to the referee in person. Result: both Mauri and Foggia have been banned for two games.What's with Serie A refs lately, in the minutes I have watched this moron gave like a dozen totally non existent fouls.
Ridiculous. As if the referee's job is somehow beyond reproach. I would understand a ban if the players outright insulted him, but if the referee makes poor decisions why shouldn't a player be allowed to tell him that?According to "Gazzetta dello Sport", in the referee's report it is written that Foggia said to the refereeing trio "You were a scandal today", whereas Mauri was more creative (at least off the pitch...) and said to the referee alone "What have you eaten today? You were a scandal". Two game bans for each of them.
