(240)-343-2585

In one such event, my brother and I attended the El Classico last year, and the situation was terrible. Temperatures were rising by the minute as the game started. It was a crucial game as it was a show of supremacy in Spain. The players were at their best. the managers run all over shouting instructions to the players as the opposing fans screaming their hearts out in support of their teams. Only the referee assumed impartiality. However, the issue of refereeing has been our source of conflict in these matches. While my brother thought and believed that the referees have always been fair, others and I felt that FIFA referees accord favoritism to Barcelona against Real Madrid. This day was not different according to me. Two of Real Madrid players were red carded in what the referee called foul play. The manager also got a warning, and Barcelona went all the way to win 3-1 in what my brother celebrated as a well-deserved win and a show of soccer supremacy in Spain. I was so frustrated with the referee, the results, and mostly by my brother, who would not see the injustice done to Real Madrid by the referee. My brother’s efforts to accommodate and convince me that the game was fair and that Barcelona deserved to win were met with abuses and demeaning statements. In the run of events, I remember cursing him to foolishness and subsequently slapping him. I could not afford to go home with him, as he would disagree with my views on the game. I was aggressive while he was accommodating in conflict.
