So it turns out he isn’t the nice guy Wigan fans made him out to be? Shock horror.

I’ve never seen a top flight professional player do that before. To say there was nothing in it is a very dangerous thing to say. We condone that kind of behaviour then the games finished as any new ref is fair game to be physically threatened.
I was sat behind the wigan directors right next to the tunnel area where it happened and from our seats It was perfectly obvious who he was going for, your directors’ reaction to what happened suggest they agree- it wasn’t a player it was the official- the ref had to tell him more than once to leave, it was clear he didn’t want to. Isa is very lucky that others intervened.

I’ve just watched the highlights and if there was ever a prize for making a mountain out of a mole hill then you win it hands down. It’s been completely blown out of all proportions.

Just watched it myself, mountain, molehill, but should have just walked..... Interestingly, he was in no hurry to get to the initial handbags, probably the last to get there.

Maybe a 1 match ban and a fine, but i would be surprised at that to be honest... Is there a precedent for strutting 10 yards away from a ref in an aggressive manner?

If you don't bother to go to the game when you live in the locality then you are not really a fan and therefore your views are invalid. It's simple.

Here's a question, players cannot touch, intimidate or verbally abuse a referee but is it OK for the head of match officials to act aggressively to the other refs?

Depends what you mean by aggressively and I’m struggling to see the relevance between that and what Isa did.

A few years ago several refs quit alleging bullying from their boss.

Shame he wasn't born in Manchester..he could use the Liam Gallagher defence if questioned about strutting away :D

Snap. Not seen a jot on Twitter so can’t be all that bad. Let’s be honest, if it was the press would be foaming at the mouth with him playing for Wigan.
Keen to see what all the fuss is about?
