People having different opinions on any  topic is fine. We can all have a debate on it, maybe change our minds, or have our original opinion reinforced.  However,  you deliberately set out to play the man, in a fairly nasty way too....a volunteer, after all, who gives up his time to enable games to get played. There's a difference.

Most Online Today: 272. Most Online Ever: 779 (January 10, 2011, 05:47:52 PM)

It's little wonder that this place has lost roughly 500 participants from the peak.

Feck aff  ;D

"How shall we feck aff, O Lord?"

You’ve all been naughty boys!

They may well have been, but is that a black, yellow or red card offence? Did the ref just ignore it?

Only 63 posts, but I see there's some previous form in respect of giving off about referees, going back a lot of years too!

They put in their match report & text in the final score. That's the end of the "accountability".

Thanks for that MR2.  just couple points  i never mentioned you booking the cdall plauer because i believe you made the right call so why would i bring it up. Just for ref my understanding is that throwing a hurl is a yellow card offence??  I stand to be corrected no problem if its not.lastly where would i sign up to be a refereeing auditor??  I like the sound of that.

I don't think it's quite the job that you think it is....it's generally meant to be a constructive role & a tool for improvement....if it's unimportant criticism & having a go you want to go in for, here is probably the right place.

Mac 23 you will see in my first post that i said i had never heard anyone previously say he was a poor ref, which implies he is a good one. For the record i didnt know he was the ref on sat but now i do is it fair to ask him as you say did he genuinely not see 3 deliberate strikes & a hurl been thrown in the air in an attempt to block the ball???
If he says he didnt see those incidents then i have to take his word for it & let the matter rest. However if he didnt see these incidents it only completely backs up my previous comments that he should not ref any further cship games this year as unfortunately he simply isnt up to it

If you want to comment on referees & make a much more effective contribution, why not sign up with the county as a refereeing advisor & do it properly / fairly?

Was in Vienna just before Christmas last year & the whole place was an Xmas market! Big one was at the City Hall....it was freezing, light snow falling, so all very festive.

Saw Ken up The Hill a few weeks ago. It was "interesting", as he himself might say.

The ongoing problem with the victims/survivors/legacy issues would suggest that this will not be possible.

As Reginald Maudling said years ago on a flight out of Belfast "for God's sake, bring me a large scotch. What a bloody awful country". He was a Tory Home Secretary,  so it looks like nothing much has changed since.

His anger is understandable.  Pete Boyle started Argento from nothing (a market stall).  Like many others he would have built his business with a lot of blood, sweat and tears and a lot of initiative.  He's a good guy who gives a lot back.  Why wouldn't he be frustrated if something outside of his control is threatening his business and the livelihood of his staff.

You obviously never worked for him, or watched him in action with any managers who displeased him!
