    Yet again no ref yet

    Countrywide, I have referee friends up country and referee retention is a problem.
  3. I cannot be consistant I am a human believe it or not and we are by default inconsisant, but I m consistantly inconsistent therefore I am consistant.
  4. BBrad1, I have to disagree we are not instructed to use our cards to gain respect etc, I enjoy nothing better than a good contested game and have not had to take any disciplinary action but sometimes players will not let you keep the cards in your pocket and you take the necessary action, a good example so far I have used very few cards yesterday it was 5 yellows and a misconduct report, It was something I had unfortunately forced upon me by the players.
  5. Dave, of course there are lots of people involved in the game who do fantastic work to keep the game running for all of us, but being a referee and in no other capacity I can only speak for myself and would not dream of speaking on behalf of anyone else.
  6. No Older I do not have to justify my self to anyone, all I was stating was fact people can read into it whatever they like , it will not stop me enjoying my football.
  7. Big Al, this Saturday I came home with £16.50 in my pocket after the game, I admit I bought a pint after the game, I left home at 13.00 hrs returned at 17.30 but it doesn’t end there, I have to sit in front of my pc and fill out a match report also my kit needed washing this includes my boots needed cleaning. Also throughout the season I attend RA meetings once a month and occasionally meetings at the CCFA hq in Bodmin which is a 60 mile round trip and yes my pockets are bulging with my earnings, I think not , referees do not do it for the money they do for the game they love.
  8. Hi Steve, thanks for your comments, it was a pleasure to meet you and hopefully we will meet again during the season.

  9. Hello, hope all is well? I know we'll be seeing you tomorrow at Grampound but on Sunday we may be hosting a games against the threemilestone vets and are looking for a ref, would be an 11am kick off at the trispen pitch again.

    Would you be interested in reffing that, should be a stroll in the park to ref!

    Cheers Elliott

  10. Spot on with your post on language Keith, Scousemouse etc seem to think it's a black & white problem , but it's a very big grey area.
