Female ref for Harrogate game


Doha

Some male refs are good, some are bad. More female refs will result in some being good, some being bad. What will continue to be genderless privilege is the freedom to make ludicrous decisions that cost teams points, then carry on the next week as though nothing has happened.

Good refs bad refs what gets me is how they see the rules that's the biggest problem in football, one will give the decision the same offence isn't given by another. That's the biggest problem with refereeing. There needs to be more officials around pitches who stick to laws and work as a team like in other sports like rugby union and American football

The problem with that is a lot of RU and NFL (more so) rely on set piece plays. That allows officials the time to stop the game. The laws are the laws, I agree, but football requires some allowance to allow the free feel. I always liked Collina for his judgement and many others, Mr TK on the other hand just no no. Interpretation of rules does have its down/upside. I thought the referee had a good game. About time too my wife always makes better decisions than me 🙂

I don’t see why gender should be a barring factor when so many refs in L2 don’t let blindness hold them back.

Spot on! I thought our ref had a decent game. Fitness shouldn't be a problem? - Sky said she kept up with play better then many men.

I think its very difficult. We all want decisions to be black and white and to have a clearly defined set of guidelines for making each type of decision. On the other hand however we want refs to use their common sense and to make decisions based on the context of the game and specific situation.

A big thing for me is refs should be mic'd up. If you disagree with a decision its easier to accept if you know the reasoning behind it. It works in other sports but in football referees are too worried about making themselves look like fools. On top of that selling the little radios so that you can listen in is another avenue of income for clubs.

I think that works in certain types of sport. In rugby the ref gives a running commentary but most the game consists of blokes in a huddle with the odd breakout. Even then they proceed to boot the ball into touch or make a few passes and go back into a huddle. I don't think it would work in football and a reason is the mobility required of the ref and assistant refs.
