Sorry, missed this one with the other reply.
With the bold, the burden of proof is on the accuser, and good luck with that. Poor reffing doesn't automatically mean match fixing, and where all 4 officials in on it?
If they take sanctions against the refs and keep it 'in house' it's not like it never happened. All the clubs will know and more importantly so will all the other officials, who don't want that to happen to them. Throwing it all over the media just creates a bigger storm.
