- The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) suspended football referees Otis James and Nykasie Liverpool in 2005 for three months
The decision to suspend the two referees was arrived at after the Disciplinary Committee considered the referees' responses to allegations which were made against them, pointing to their conduct after a game in the Fruta Conquerors KO Tournament between Conquerors FC and Victoria Kings, played at the Tucville ground on November 16.
According to the committee their behaviour tarnished the image of the game and their own reputations.
