  1. A ref can be demoted its happened before, suspended I doubt it, as you say not exactly overrun with them are we.
  2. Only in the fact that the player or coach can be banned from playing or coaching how often does that happen to a ref.
  3. I can read and understand everything I have written, it's you that seems to have the problem, is that with you having been a referee yourself? noone else can have an opinion, everybody else is wrong, what was it you put, referees make mistakes but considerably less than players or coaches, your words not mine.
  4. What have I said wrong now? Oh and by the way I'm not on anything
  5. What you said was the refs report is a factual account of what happened and is accepted as such, no mention of the referee not having to be asked any questions.
  6. I appreciate that refs have a very hard and at times thankless job to do, I also respect them, I also know that the rugby-league are clamping down on referee abuse and I don't have a problem with that. Had LeeF with his knowledge of ref reports mentioned the fact that they are not questioned all of this could have been prevented, as I said earlier I haven't been to a hearing before so I wouldn't know what goes on. I heard the referee was not at the hearing.
  7. Well yet again you are clearly wrong, as I said earlier I didn't put the ref had lied, my point was he wasn't at the hearing to back up what he had reported or to be asked to elaborate on it by either the committee or the coach, why is that so hard for you to understand?
  8. To georgehadgingerhair the club policy is to respect all officials as it should at all age levels, I too have played the game and watched for 50+ years and have a son still playing, I like you don't know what was said or in what manner it was said, so by talking to an official you are setting a bad example, I could understand you saying this if he was screaming in his ear with an aggressive manner but from where I was stood that didn't seem the case to me, obviously the club have spoken to him over this
  9. How did I imply the ref lied, and how do you base your opinion that I don't respect the officials under which current system, you have just stated yourself the disciplinary committee read the refs report and "thought" that it contained all the facts, so by that statement are you suggesting it may not have contained all the facts, had the ref been there they would have found out wouldn't they?
  10. I think if Mark had of pushed him to the ground surely the referee would have had that in his factual report don't you? Now Mark has served his ban he can now carry on been a very successful coach at a very successful club.
  11. I think this has reached its course now as you obviously only believe one side, that of the referee, fair enough, I didn't say that the referee had lied in his report or that I don't respect the officials at any time, you have just made the assumption that because I said the referee could have put anything you think I'm wrong when my point was why didn't the referee have to attend the hearing if questions needed to be asked
  12. So by disagreeing with what the referee says that means you don't have any respect for them in your opinion, does that apply to a captain of a team aswell if they ask the referee about a decision, your missing my point altogether, the referee said one thing the coach said another but because that's what the report says in your eyes that is what happened, no ifs or buts.
  13. I put that because that referee didn't go to the hearing, as I have never had to attend I wouldn't know what the protocol is, my point was with him not been there to be asked anything had there been a query, there are two sides to everything surely, you can't have a disagreement with a piece of paper.
  14. I take it from your response you are either a referee/linesman now or have been at sometime, how is what I have said a lack of respect to any officials I haven't called either for how they control a game, but it seems to your way of thinking if a coach has a difference of opinion and says something to them they have to be wrong and the officials are right, like I have said we all make mistakes, and anyone that hasn't has never done anything.
  15. Your correct in saying I have no knowledge of refereeing a game, this has no relevance what so ever, as for the rules of the game I may not know all of them, but your opinion on my respect is totally wrong I have respect for everyone unless they give me reason not to do so, and like I said I heard the penalty count, if that was wrong then I apologise for offending you, it doesn't matter to me I'm not on the pitch playing I'm just watching a game, but don't tell me for one minute that referees don't make mistakes or touch judges there only human like the rest of us
