In practice, Judge Nir Myerson's remarks were specifically referred to incorrectly.
"Myerson has a very problematic history in the games he refereed Hapoel Tel Aviv, and this issue worried us already when we received the placement. In recent days we have accumulated many more cases in which referee Myerson is involved in wrong and offensive decisions towards Hapoel Tel Aviv. In fact - Hapoel Tel Aviv did not win a game Nir Myerson has been in charge since May last year, including a balance of four losses, including many cases of blatant errors of judgment, "in addition to a balance of eight whistles against Hapoel Tel Aviv in the final game compared to only two whistles for Hapoel Tel Aviv."
The team demanded the appointment of an examiner and an external and transparent examination: "The Tel Aviv Basketball Club requires full transparency and criticism of the level of refereeing, similar to other sports in Israel and around the world, which includes a detailed report after each game and especially in big games.
"They say that the sun purifies everything - the
must also be exposed to criticism and transparency in their decisions - and we had better start the final game."
The latter, and uploaded videos that show the referee's alleged mistakes during the team's games and in the final in particular.
