Why Do Footballers Argue After The Referee Has Made A Decision?

why do footballers argue? It doesnt make any difference. The ref will never go back on his decision.

^^ truthfully, i dont think Lagerback has anything to offer. Check his records, nothing impressive. He even lost to Bruno Metsu, whom i think would have been a better option if at all we needed a foreign coach, in 2002.

First, they are human being

Second, football is beyond kicking the ball its also a psychological game so you always do your part deliberately to affect

the psyche of the refree no matter how strong he might want to prove to be. That way the next decision he makes about you

or your team will be done with caution. Such psychological work could make a refree who just gave a player red card to over look

another red card offense if your team commits another one. It all depends, you play the game kicking the ball and you also play the psychological part

to your own advantage.

I wish Nigerian footballers understood this because you will see them at the world cup just accepting everything thrown at them while

Argentina, Brazil, Italy, England and the rest will deliberately 'work' the refree on his decisions to their over all advantage on the field of play.

Even Tunisia, Algeria and Egypy understood that basic psychological principle.

@ marhoski

its a different thing when you react to an insult because something comes out of it. Its either you are warnin the person not to repeat it or you are trying to make the person apologize or for some other reason but when you react to a refree's decision, its an action in futility even when you're right, the refree wont change his decision

well, i think its just instinctive and sometimes when you're right, the FA can look into it.

I agree with kgdavid. . . .It's to intimidate the Referee and put pressure on him so he'd favour them in the next decision.

because in the heat of the moment, emotions take over. more importantly some players complain vehemently so as to put pressure on the ref to favour them on the next decision
