I suspect it will go the same way as Phil Clarke's "margin meter".

Just to be clear, you mean it will go away for a while then come back again much improved and no longer hyped as something it was never meant to be?

As long as they can weather the first couple of weeks they will have blocked most of the idiots, as they all seem helpfully seem set on identify themselves.

Okay!

Just seemed an odd example when the margin meter is used several times during every Sky match. Seems odder now.

They are answering questions on there now - I’m finding it very informative.

Im liking that they seem happy to say, "yes, agree that the pass was forward".

 

There's no apologies but I wouldnt expect there to be, its a tough gig, they will get things wrong and its nice to see them able to confirm that they got something wrong. To be fair they are right more than often!

 

I like the idea and as has been said, once theyve gone a few weeks and blocked all the crazies then its a very useful tool to access officials and ask good questions.

Here's my current favourite and to no suprise they didn't reply

@RFLReferees if a female streaker intercepted the ball & scored a perfect try would you goto the big screen to check the grounding?

Alibert admits to a mistake in his reffing of the Salford game, which I think is admirable given the public nature of Twitter.

I don't think that questions can be answered in 140 characters with any consistency.  interesting so far though.

Thought it was superb, hats off to the refs for putting themselves in the firing line so to speak.

I'm impressed by this initiative, and read every (constructive) question that was answered. Good, informative stuff.
