I just don't get the apologists looking to justify incredibly bad decisions by officials. And there are a few of them on this site. To even contemplate that a referee can't be replaced because appointments had been made some time previously is just head in the sand stuff. What would happen if a referee suffered an injury or illness a day or two before a game. Of course, replacements can be made. And in this instance, all Romanian game officials should have been replaced simply to avoid the suggestions of bias coming after the event.
