After the winds around the game of the season calmed down, the referees' union analyzed the events of the meeting between Hapoel B'Shlosha and Maccabi Haifa.
The professional committee will discuss the case, when criticism is already being heard of assistant referee Dudu Bitton's insistence on keeping Meir away following his remarks towards assistant coach BS Bendo ("zeros, shemales").
"Things like this happen in a tunnel. If there was no dismissal no one would have talked about it," union officials said. "There are dozens of such cases in a season. "It's old enough and experienced to know that. However, there is a certain offense here of the cursing player, but it is not on the verge of affecting the game in that way."

Aviad Shiloah, who erred when he pulled out a red card for Matan Hozaz in the game between Hapoel Jerusalem and Maccabi Tel Aviv, was not included this weekend. The first yellow card he handed out to Hozaz.
