It's not looking good for Nobby if he had to be restrained by the fourth official. I wonder what might have happened if he hadn't been?

Unfortunately, it seems Referee James Child brings out the worse in some people in the game. Didn't John Kear have a few words about him a while back or was it somebody else?

I'm sure Mick would appear as a witness for Nobles defence. He could take a dossier with all his forum rants about Mr Childs

Surely getting arrested twice in 2 years is a hell of a lot worse that a little 'ref abuse'?

admitedly I've only seen the incident once at normal speed but the penalty decision looked a joke to me.

Childs is a rubbbish referee. He should be rounded up and shot, or else demoted to Keighley.

bit harsh on noble he walked down the touchline shouting and balling then through his water bottle on the floor but stopped at the edge of his box, the 4th ref then walked and stood infront of him (he hardly had to restrain him) :huh:

Its OK Cummins the Clown will defend his match Officials no matter what. The sooner Cummins goes and somebody not so arrogant and prepared to admit faults comes in, the better. The standards of match officials across the Pro League is poor. That comes down to Cummins.

Child has too often been at the centre of this sort of 'controversy' for my liking and i've said it before and i'm sure i will say it again; too often he is a major influencing factor (or rather his performances are) on a result, more so than the players he is refereeing.

NB: That is not me saying he is bent, rather implying that his own poor interpretation of the rules and moreover his bafflingly inconsistent application of them have a detremental effect on the quality of most of the games i have watched him ref since he came onto the SL scene particularly.

Quite a few Championship club coaches have moaned about his performances in the past. I seem to recall Mark Aston having a go in the press after one Eagles game last year.

That said, Mark Aston does have previous when criticising referees. He's been better this year, though. Good job - it's really unhelpful and probably just winds Cummings and company up. Much better the 'softly softly' approach.

There was one young kid who reffed the Sheffield-Widnes game at the start of this season who was utterly incompetent. He probably would be a great ref with more experience, but he lost control of the game within about 10 minutes and all hell broke loose for 70 minutes - not helped by Thackray laying out Sam Barlow with a flying elbow (unpunished by the officials).

There was more to it than what was shown on telly, he went nuts after the kick went over, kicking over a advertising board, he followed Child down the tunnel still arguing with him, apparently they had to stop Noble going into the refs changing room after the match. I think he also confronted Child during half time also.
