Ref for Sunday.

11 posts in this topic

Let's hope he doesn't need an abacus like Mr Bloem!!!

His number of 7 tackle sets last week was disgraceful.

Surely it's not expecting to much for the officials to be able to count up to six??

Not a 100% but believe he is from the St Helens area.

It seems as if certain games have been selected to give new referees game time. You have M Woodhead, Haven v Swinton have G Kendall and Fev v Town have A Sweet, who reffed the Haven v Donny game last Sunday and no-one had a good word for his performance.

League Weekly Silver Whistle Appraisal for the above Ref's:

 

Mike Woodhead at Gateshead Vs Skolars Score: 75/100

 

Chris Kendall at York Vs Hemel Score: 55/100

 

A. Sweet at Haven Vs Doncaster Score: 25/100

 

Is there any hope for any of us if the Whistleblower is rubbish.

I suppose its OK to criticise referees but what is the answer - presumably there is no long line of folks trying to get in on the act, all better than the current bunch.

 

Seems like we need to make it a more attractive proposition to become a referee with the intention of attracting more (and/or better) candidates.

 

Mr Sweet may well have been rubbish ( I wasn't at the game), but what was the alternative?

Former Hornets and Oldham winger Chris Campbell is now a ref.He was quite a flyer Chris, so he should be able to keep up with the game.

He reffed his first pro game Scorpions v Thunder a fortnight ago.Be nice if he reffed one of our games.

Perfect choice for a future "A627M El Classico" if there is one.

I'd like to know who the assessors were in the referee Sweet game.  To award a referee only 25/100 would suggest that it was not a totally independent set of adjudicators.  I have lost count of the times people have criticised a ref near me when they were obviously wrong in their reason for doing so.  Missing the count is one that a regular poster on here does as a matter of course, forward passes are another favourite, how in the name of almighty Pete they can tell a pass is forward from play near the ends when they are on halfway I don't know!

 

Stop worrying about referees or do the right thing and get onto your local referees society and have a go, I think most would realise their errors very quickly.

 

Pugwash.

I've got to disagree with you Andy. Just because a referee got a low mark doesn't necessarily mean that the adjudicators were not independent. I wasn't at the match so can not comment on Mr Sweet's performance. Referees can have bad days like everyone else. I would be worried if he was being given low marks all the time. I would also not expect every referee to be given a high mark irrespective of his performance.  A long time ago I achieved the mark of 25% in an Art exam. This  was a subjective mark and I couldn't argue with it as it wasn't my best work. I would suspect that the adjudicators had guide lines to help them come to their decision.

 

I'm a little too old to take up your suggestion re trying my hand at refereeing. However I do think that the referees that I've seen over the years cover the complete spectrum of competency. Most are ok and have good and bad days but a few are just  not up to the job and a few are excellent.
