  • Our correspondent Croref always tells us to read between the lines. Night clubs, he writes, more often than not are a cover for prostitution and in many cases building companies serve for money laundering. Batinic was nominated by Zelko Siric, the referee designator and a bit of dodgy character.
    Although his performance was highly critizised (5 red in one match last year) and he was several times penalized because of bad refereeing in years before that, the referee commission in Croatia still nominated him.
  • Batinic is from Osijek, so are most refs in the 1st and 2nd Croat Divisions, so are most people who vote for the new referees on the list.
    Croref adds that Batinic drives a Mercedes, apparently people in Croatie know these things. Let it be known that yours truly drives an old Volvo.
  • Batinic's father was also a referee.
