Barnsley boss Mark Robins was left furious by Surrey referee Gavin Ward's decision not to consult either manager before abandoning Saturday's game at Plymouth.
The Tykes were cruising 4-1 at Home Park when Ward called the game off 13 minutes into the second half due to a waterlogged pitch.
"I don't think the referee would have made the same decision if the score was the other way around," said Robins. "The decision was made unilaterally by the referee and that's the first time I have seen that."
He added: "I don't think that is was dangerous. I'm just really disappointed with his decision."
Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock had some sympathy for a frustrated Robins and agreed both managers should have been consulted but ultimately felt Ward had made the right decision.
Sturrock said: "He should have had a word with the two managers or captains at half-time. But if we had played the next 15 minutes, after the decision was made, it would have been shambolic because of the incredible deluge. It was getting bad enough as it was."
