Not put warmth on the referee for wanting silly and searching like they’re making an attempt to look away in order that they do not see the spot. And that is the best way it felt to me, it felt just like the referee was simply making an attempt to look away simply so he would not see the spot occurring behind his again … It simply did not make sense like, ‘Oh, I will simply look over right here,’ after which that does not simply fall on the referee, it falls on the expertise, that falls on the agent producing that match, and stuff like that.”
