Hand of the Emperor officials back with a flash
Do you remember the refereeing tandem Paulo CÃÂ©sar de Oliveira and Maria Eliza Barbosa, who let AdrianoÃ¢ÂÂs 'Hand of the Emperor' goal stand?
Well, PalmeirasÃ¢ÂÂ intervention prevented them to be considered for work on the SÃÂ£o Paulo State final, but they somehow managed to be selected to officiate the Minas Gerais match.
This time, even bad refereeing like theirs couldn't prevent high-flying Cruzeiro from running over AtlÃÂ©tico. But, once again, the duo took center-stage. Just take a look at the kits they donned for the final.
Fair enough. For lousy uniforms for lousy referees Ã¢ÂÂ probably approved by RonaldoÃ¢ÂÂs transvestite friends.
