Blaming the assistant referee is not always right

Football players are stars in blaming the assistant and center referee for their own mistakes. This video below is a perfect example.

In the Polish top league match between Zagłębie Lubin – Legia Warsaw a corner kick needs to be taken. However, the player doesn’t take a good look at the assistant referee and kicks him first, before touching the ball.

Because he’s neutral, the ball is considered to be taken by referee Daniel Stefanski. He let the play continue. An opponent nearby sees it and captures the ball and walks away with it.

The video below shows bad passes in the beginning followed by the stupid corner kick. Looks pretty odd.

Which of you does know the official guideluines for assistant referee’s positioning at a corner kick?
