Bulgaria bans refs for sucking

Now this is a precedent I can get behind.

Bad referees aren't going to cut it in Bulgaria. Two of 'em got four-match suspensions for their ineptitude.
"There's no place for such referees in Bulgarian football," [BFU Vice President Yordan] Lechkov was quoted as saying after Sliven's defeat last weekend.

"All of us are watching games from all around Europe and we see that referees are making mistakes. But they don't do it deliberately," he said.
Twelve refs have faced such punishment in the last two years.

And for my money, it should happen more often.
