Wolves captain Karl Henry didn't hold his tongue whilst discussing the performance of the match officials at Middlesbrough on Saturday.
The skipper was on the receiving end of a harsh 88th minute penalty decision, when despite not moving his arm towards the ball, the linesman still awarded a penalty.
In case you were in confusion, a handball award is suppose to be for deliberate handball, you are suppose to show some kind of intent, not just have a ball fired at you with pace and have little chance of moving out of the way.
You are also suppose to have touched the ball with your hand or arm.
So if you're going to give a decision like that you should be 100% sure with yourself, when it's late on in the game and it's going to be an incident that decides the outcome of a match, you should definitely be sure you're decision making is spot on.
"It hit me on the shoulder and the linesman saw something else. I thought it was rubbish officiating - I don`t know why he`s at this level. He cost us the game.' Henry told the Shropshire Star.
He continued: "I think we were robbed and Middlesbrough deserved a point, at best. For the ref and the linesman to give a penalty for that was a disgrace.
"They won because of a rubbish decision by the linesman."
Of course when controversial decisions are given, both sets of players and fans are likely to come to two completely different conclusions.
We're of course all biased to our a team, but on this occasion we are justified in our complaints!
When a former Premier League referee, who just so happens to also be a Middlesbrough fan breaks cover and sides against the referee and his own team, then you know it's a poor decision!
Jeff Winter said: 'I have got to be honest, and even with my Middlesbrough hat on, when the ball was whipped into the box, I didn`t think it was a penalty.
"The player didn`t look as if he moved his arm in any way, shape or form - the ball just merely hit him.
"And, having seen it on television again, I`ve seen nothing to change my mind.
Vital Wolves Comment: I wonder how long it will be before we see linesman Sebastian Stockbridge and referee Rob Madley in charge of a Wolves game again?
