A Great Site For Referees
This site is about the most interesting site that I have come accross. It has a question and answer section of real submissions to qualified referees.
It's worth checking out - you will learn a thing or two.
The Guide to Referees - A little tounge in cheek
The Blind Ref - sees himself as the friend of the fast-flowing game.
Appears to have lost his whistle and lets anything pass.
The Whistling Ref - a chronic whistleblower for every minor misdeed, fragmenting the game with a thousand irritating stoppages.
The Homer Ref - believes that every savage foul by the home team is nothing more than an enthusiastic tackle.
The Headmaster Ref - treats everyone as naughty little players.
Gives patronizing sarcastic glances, much finger wagging and stern lecturing.
The Flashy Ref - is immaculately costumed.
Uses flamboyant gestures and often acts out fouls in mime.
The Smiley Ref - has seen it all before and believes that humor is the best way to defuse potentially explosive situations. nearly always smiles when he gives a severe warning.
The Perfect Ref - is firm but fair. Restrained but decisive.
Unmoved by emotional outbursts.
Unimpressed by special pleading, and can tell a trip from a dive at
