Mick Jagger was up in arms, with millions of others, as he watched England's 2nd goal against Germany, hit the ground OVER the white line and then bounce back out.
All those who watched the replay were equally shocked as the goal was momentarily celebrated then disallowed by a geriatric 'referee's assistant' who forgot to put in his contact lenses that day.
The embarrassed 'ref.s assistant' has allegedly gone into hiding and is undergoing plastic surgery. He knows he is now a 'wanted man' and will be going into The Witness Protection Programme as soon as he is healed.
He's a fan of The Rolling Stones and is just beside himself with grief after watching the replays. He can't bear to think what Mick must be feeling towards him.
Mick Jagger, who was cheering on the American team the day before, with his friend, Bill Clinton, is 'fit to be tied'.
My source tells me that Mick said the following:
"O.K.", he said, "That one goal technically would not have made a difference to the outcome. BUT it must have affected the lads' morale early on in the game. They must have lost faith in the officials at that point. I'm surprise they had the early on.
Who knows what was going on in their minds after that pathetic decision by the 'linesman' (how can I call him a ref's assistant when he didn't help the ref. at all, unless the ref. had money on Germany to win?)"
Mick's meeting with FIFA bosses later this week in an effort to get instant replays ruled 'in'. He's getting a group together which is rumoured to include, Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Bob Geldorf, Ringo Starr, Rod Stewart and a number of other 'living' pop stars from the 60's and 70's.
Mick added, "If I can't get no satisfaction, I'll be taking it to HRH. Something needs to be done."
"We have the technology. Why the hell are they not using it?"
That's the cry from millions of Football Fans across the world because many games in the recent history of the game would have had different outcomes if they used the technology they have at their disposal instead of relying on 'sight impaired' officials who don't seem to be able to keep up with the ball when it's in play.
Let's hope that Mick and the lads can talk some sense into FIFA.
