Graham Poll Quits International Football Refereeing

Following his debacle between Australia and Croatia Graham Poll's retirement from refereeing international football matches is more than welcome news. Except if you play in the English Premier League, I guess, where he can concentrate his efforts now.

Having ref'd in Euro 2000 and World Cups 2002 and 2006 and having blundered in each and every one, it's another case of three fouls and you're off.

Speaking as an American that isn't terribly interested in soccer, it's frightening when even I can make better calls than the referee.
