moving up in the fa refereeing ranks is similar to moving up in the scientology ranks. The crazier you get, the faster you move!

hey prideofzootv, what stage is it they give you a full frontal labotomy?

Well, congrats! My advice to you would be to watch your back and stay low. LOL! I've heard football fans sometimes get a little out of hand.

i start at level 7, general small football, then if i referee 10 matches, i move to level 6 (i think), which is like 11-a-side local leagues, leavel 2 is premiership football and level 1 is international. i am going to work hard to get to that level, and funny enough im not planning on doing it full time, just a second hobby

start in 5 days woo im really excited, not trying to blow ones whistle though....badump cha! lol

I can already tell that you are too smart to qualify to be a premiership ref. Sorry pride.

lol will do, but i tell you now i have reffed a couple matches without qulifications and its hard to make the right decisions all the time, you always make at least 1 cock up, and when you have no linesman, well its impossible to know if someone was offside or not, you can only see so much so, apoligies for any cock ups i may make in the future

Well thats refreshing at least a ref admitting to a mistake, unlike that horrible toad stiles in mid week, that tackle by Fitz Hall wasn't even a yellow, but to give it a straight red was F*&^ing laughable, then those decrepit old tossers at the fa reject Wigans appeal, if stiles had any kind of backbone whatsoever he'd have publicly stated he'd made a mistake, & it shouldn't have been a red card, but then again we're talking about a particularly nasty person, even more so than most of his counterparts, what say you, Prideof.
& while we're at it, did you see the Fulham/United game today, if so could you please explain to me how Boupa Diop was carded for a foul on Ronaldo, rightly so IMO, but minutes later made a far worse tackle on Giggs, & not carded.The only reason I can see is the ref didn't have the spine to send him off, there's absolutely no other reason why he didn't produce a card for that tackle, compare that challenge to Hall's for Wigan, and the indifference between ref's is at best laughable, at worst downright disgraceful!

I believe one of the qualifications for being a premiership ref is "No Brain Activity". Due to your ability to post on this message board, I assume that you have brain activity.

I doubt they hire you...

lol thanks for the "no brain activity" explaination

my best guess for the man unt incidents is, iv seen this before but the referee is a supporter Fulham, not sure if he is or not but it wouldnt surprise me, he made a booking for a tackle ok might of been right might not of been (i didnt see the match sorry), but when a worse one came in the last thing going through his mind is "shit if i red card him i will be kicked out the house by my missus and hated by all my fulham friends, shit shit shit, erm, free kick will do yeh"

and if a player was sent off for a non bookable tackle something went badly wrong with the refs eyesight, in this case the referee should of consulted the linesman and fourth official for a clear determination on what occured, instead of lashing out a straight red for an uncertainty.

the referee THEN after lashing out the card should of reviewed the footage after the match, realised it was wrong, made an apology and gone to the FA and asked them to revoke the 3/4 match ban he placed on him.


then again thats coming from someone who has yet to get his level 7 yet, (4 more days yey!), but like i said if it was me thats what i would do, Man Unt wise, thats my best guess unusual booking malarky

in all seriousness though, I wish you the best of luck.

Just do me a favor, if you are ever in the same room as mike riley, please kick him. The higher on the body the better.

Thanks in advance!

Again with the brain power, man. Watch out for that.

I used to referee minor-league hockey. You are going to make mistakes, and you're going to make some bloody big ones. In every single game. It happens, though - it always will when one person is asked to make every judgment call on the fly for an hour, or 90 minutes, and keep up with the athletes while you're at it. My best advice is just to remember this, and when you do make a mistake, there is usually something to improve (your positioning, knowledge of the rules, etc) so you should find the thing you need to work on. That's how you become a better referee.

I wish you the best of luck. Maybe you can score me some World Cup tickets when you ref the finals?
