Lowdesert Posted April 30, 2016 Share Posted April 30, 2016 I was brought up, was coached and coached others to respect referees and to believe that referees never cost you the game. You have it in your hands to win. But, in recent times, I am becoming more frustrated. Are referees just trying to ensure they go through a process to appease their boss? Or, do they rely on their judgement and descretion? From what I've seen its the former and it's slowing the game down too much. In addition, they seem to be making more basic mistakes - mistakes that fans, ex players and pundits see, but decisions stay the same. Are we any better off with technology? Obviously. But would the game be better if the refereeing Team on the pitch worked together more, committed to decisions, were allowed to use descretion and stopped going to the video for what seems like everything?
