Diomedes: “We’re facing a lot of hostile referees”

Published

Diomedes Argos complains about the referees he has in his matches with his social media placement, which is also accompanied by a video.

Diomedis has received complaints from the referees in his games in the Handball Premier and voiced them with its placement on social media, also accompanied by a video.

Its relative placement in detail: “What’s happening this year in the Greek league is unprecedented. Since the beginning of the year we’ve been dealing with a lot of hostile referees, whether we’re playing at home or away, and the refereeing mistakes against our team follow one another. Sometimes , like yesterday we were so much better competitively that we could even win the referee, sometimes not and that cost us points in the first round.

The doctrine of “form a team to win the arbitration” does not represent us. We demand equality and fair treatment and strong governance in OHE that ensures these values. But it seems that we are asking much of a federation which itself defines the KED and which in turn seems utterly unable to halt the downward spiral of Greek arbitration.

We have shown the patience befitting the greatness and history of Diomedes, who wanted to protect the sport at a difficult time in its history, but instead of being appreciated, this was perceived as a weakness and as a result, the situation got worse game by game. So far, however, patience has its limits. We will not allow anyone to play with our players’ sweat and undermine the sacrifices of team management. We will no longer tolerate arbitrations such as Tolios, Mertinian, Charalambidis, Slavetis, Kyriakou, Grapsa, etc. accompanied by the corresponding observer ratings.

OCHE and KED must take their (big) responsibilities, changes and cuts are needed, the groups will no longer pay for their incompetence. Enough is enough…

PS1: Although the refereeing is so tragic that it cannot be disputed, it is still interesting for the whole handball world to realize the extent of the sport’s humiliation, so we are accompanying this announcement with a video.

PS2: We remain at everyone’s disposal (ΕΧΕ – KED) for possible initiatives that will lead to the correction of this situation.
