Linesman stops game after copping abuse from fans


Recommended Posts


Notts County's game with Crewe finished 15 mins late due to the lino refusing to carry on after getting a load of verbal abuse from County fans. The incident happened after a last minute penalty was awarded to Crewe. What makes it worse is the opposite Lino refused to swap sides.

Why should the lino on the opposite side swap?

There's a hierarchy of linos. I forget which side the more senior one stands on but he was the one who used to take over if the ref got injured before it changed to be the 4th official (which happened in this game)

The ref can call upon the more senior lino to switch sides in exceptional circumstances
