Don't touch the referee

I can't help it, I have to write two blogs today. The Washington Redskins are playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a player was angry near one of the referees. The commentators were almost angry too. You don't touch a referee or, in American parlance, you are ejected from the game (sent off in English). Earlier in the game Nick Halling suggested that referees had been making mistakes. His co-presenter, the American Kevin Cadle refused to make any remarks against the referee.

We have a problem in England (well Scotland definitely has it too) that we don't respect our referees. I really don't blame the Scottish referees for their recent strike and until we start supporting the decision makers our games and our attitudes are not going to improve.

Change the world
