Perhaps, but the article only mentions the monkey cries regarding other matches by other teams. Why not include that info here, if that really is what happened?

Raw Beer, does it matter what exactly was chanted? Isn't the point that the ref found it enough to halt the game? It feels that you disagree with stopping the game.?

No! How can anyone agree or disagree with the ref if the article does not tell us what happened. That was my point.

Checking out other sites, it appears that if a player claims to hear racist chants, the ref is required to halt the match to remind the spectators to behave. From the story, we don't know if the alleged chants were confirmed.
