HEADS

  • As so many ex-FIFA referees, Ian Mcleod became a bit of a football politician. His being a commissioner and the chairman of the referee's committee was cause of some protests by other referees. He was both the person who appointed referees and the one to take care of possible complaints. And there were complaints, it being South Africa, complaints concerning racial issues.
    This was in 2007.
  • In 1998 the match Cape Town Spurs - Vaal started 50 minutes too late because refereeMcLeod had gone to the wrong stadium.
