“I’ve been speaking about changes since long time ago” says opposite of Zenit Kazan Maksim Mikhailov.



He is not satisfied with some referees’ decisions during the game against Halkbank and as he says it is the last drop that makes the cup run over!

“We have to make some changes in volleyball refereeing system. If the referee makes a lot of mistakes, he should be punished. Then, they will have some fear and will reduce mistakes! I’m not talking only about the last match but a lot of previous games. We need to change this system” says Mikhailov!

If the referees have nore fear, they will make more unintentional mistakes. The problem is that CEV is putting unexperienced referees to ‘learn’ on this matches! And that might mean that the club will loose important game and maybe next year there will not be more sponsors ready to pay any more, and players and many people will loose their jobs… And it all starts from a bad decision who to put to be referee.

I would advise Mr.Mikhailov to try to referee a match. And then speak about changing the system, because if you really want to change the system, first you should understand it and punishing is not something that refers to a inteligent sport like volleyball. It is easy to speak about something, when you never have done it.
We should also never forget that the referees are doing their job, because it is theirs hobby and the players are profesional-player.

@Ref I agree with you. It is not easy. But also there are a supervisors from the CEV that have to do something and be really objective about the refereeing, especially about the mistakes. Supervisors are also doing the same thing, they just respect what the others ‘indirectly’ told them to do and they try also just ‘not to move the water’. Everybody’s loosing in this dirty games
