Fairly new ref did my course in June, done over 20 games now. Not really sure how to formulate my thoughts but i will have a go... Does or did anyone have quite a empty feeling after refereeing games? Sometimes feel I have had a great game and feel high, sometimes complete opposite, a lot of the time however I just feel empty? I am not a needy person by any stretch but I am not sure if it just a lack of feedback which equates to that or a lack of experience or what. It's strange because I am not really sure if I enjoy refereeing or not, I love football always have done and I enjoy the intellectual side of refereeing the interpretation and the knowledge etc but for example my next game next weekend I don't have a buzzing feeling just a kind of again empty feeling of almost apathy? Really strange. Possiby linked to missing playing (I am 28 and played last season) my current plans are to keep going for whole season and see where that takes me. Thanks for taking the time to read a bit of a ramble! Would be interested to hear if any of the newer refs can relate.
