Star of the match: Ramírez Domínguez

Referees have a tough job and get more than their share of abuse, but the fellow whistling the Athletic - RM match last Saturday should be reprimanded for not knowing the rules regarding yellow and red cards. A disgrace that only rewarded the ugly play by Athletic.
Exhibit A: And the referee thought García was faking it? (no card given)

Exhibit B: How many professional fouls does it take? (no card given)

Exhibit C: Guerrero gets a yellow for tackling from behind

Exhibit D: Ramos gets a yellow for ... talking from behind

Exhibit E: Don't they give red cards for these??
Dude, i've found your videos in youtube, but i see some missing from this match... like pablo garcía pulling the hair of an athletic bilbao player, a compilation of ramos' lessons of how to use elbows when jumping for a ball...

No wonder i'm the first comment here, just taking a look at your objectivity makes it clear.
Thank you for your comments.

I have never claimed to be objective, nor do I expect Athletic fans (or anti-madridistas) to be particularly thrilled with this set of videos. Even so, I don't think much can be said to discredit my claims that the refereeing in this match was god-awful.
