Not something that has happened personally, but I thought I’d ask.
Let’s assume you’re at a tournament or a public pitch and there is a match on straight after yours so the teams and the ref are standing by.
You have a mass confrontation or other serious match event e.g. off the ball incident...
Let's say you officiate in a league that requires you to report the substitutes and the time they happen.
A sub happens at half time and you are informed. Do you report it as 45th minute or 46th minute?
I have two questions based on a game I watched on Saturday.
1) Crowd shouts abuse at Orange player who then turns round and shouts back telling them to shut up and get a life. Would you be giving a sanction for a player shouting at the crowd? Does adopting aggessive attitude work with a player...
Is there anything to stop a defending team (at a freekick or in open play etc) all holding hands to form a human chain to stop the opposing team being able to run through?
Obviously there would be length considerations in terms of reaching from one side of the park to the other, but in theory...
A few discussion points in this video for you to talk about.
1) Around 7 seconds, are you giving a PK, IDFK, or play on. What cards are you giving if any.
2) What action are you taking around the incident at 25 seconds
3) Discuss the actions of the AR in advising the referee
4) Discuss the...
Just a quick clip this week.
Red card shown during KFTPM for OFFINABUS. Opinions on correctness, observations about handling of he incident etc.
I have also got a poll for next weeks video type - red card or penalty incident. Vote for which you want next week.
I always thought that you should hold the flag in the hand closest to the referee unless giving a decision which dictates otherwise. Normally this therefore means my left hand as an AR.
At Celtic game tonight, both assistants held the flag in their right hand almost exclusively. Is there a...
I uploaded a clip yesterday for discussion. If this seems to be liked, I would consider trying to find a few more clips and post them weekly to encourage debate and experience from other members.
Use the vote to let me know if it's something you would be interested in. If @Ross has any...
ive found a YouTube site with a fair number of decisions such as penalties and reds that could be used to encourage discussion and healthy debate. Would this be something that is wanted/welcome? And if so, which section? Match incidents?
I'm not sure if I've made a boo boo in a charity match and hopefully you can help. This decision wouldn't have changed the end outcome as the team who felt aggrieved won.
Anyway, long ball is played from half way line by a blue defender to his attacker who is just outside the 18 yard line...
At the Celtic v Rangers game yesterday, it went to KFTPM after it ended 2-2 AET. Rangers win the toss and therefore Celtic were to take penalties second. In sudden death, Rogic steps up to take the PK but as he puts his foot down beside the ball before he kicks it (see pictures) the spot seams...
I was wondering if there were any boundaries used for the areas assistants can be seen to have "credible" decisions with. For example, if one AR is on the half way line and a decision happens up the other end of the park, apparently out of view if the other AR and referee although they are...
Tournament at the weekend and I gave a IDFK and yellow for a verbal distraction at the halfway line. I spoke to another referee and said that it was my first time with that offence and we were wondering...can a verbal distraction ever be deemed as DOGSO?
We thought yes because it may unfairly...
Does anyone think it'd be a good idea to have a fantasy league for refchat members?
I've not been involved in one for years so I'm not sure where you can make a league but I'm sure if someone did there would be demand for it with the forum.
Anyone any good at setting one up?
As much as it pains me to suggest this @Ross , could it be worthwhile having an Assault or confrontation section or something similar. Recently I've noticed a lot of people posting about such incidents and looking for advice and support on what happened. This section would help such serious...
Seems to be a few debates surrounding KFTPM recently so thought I'd add this to the mix.
Keeper destroys the penaly mark...deliberately. What's your next move?
Any discipline to keeper?
Abandon and report?
