Hiya Pig. This week I got there earlier and parked properly as I was reffing a League match for the U15s. I then found out I was being assessed by some guy from the Rugby Football Union!

Just what you need on a Sunday morning, a lot of partisan parents screaming from the touchlines, "Hey, ref, that bu88ar just smacked my little Johnny" and such like, and a bloke with a voice-recorder analysing every little nuance and decision! Time for a bit of lateral thinking.

Briefed the two skippers and teams on what I expected and wanted to see, then briefed the coaches. "Listen, guys, I will control the game, it is up to you two to control the touch-lines. One peep out of any of them and it's a penalty, straight away!" Good as gold for the whole game and thoroughly enjoyable to boot, although I had to take the flag away from the home touch-judge, as he was not up to it. Kept giving an extra 4-5 metres, then forgot to go behind the posts for a conversion and yelling out to me that the throw-ins weren't straight. "Come here, sunshine. All I told you to do was mark where the ball went into touch, look out for knock-ons, and leave the rest to me. I can do without you bellowing in my ear when I am looking for a plethora of other things, OK? Now Foxtrot Oscar and make sure there is a pint of Guinness on the bar when I get in there!"

Got back in the bar afterwards, and all the assessor was disappointed with was the fact that nothing kicked off, there was no punching and violence. "No that good, as I couldn't see how you would handle that particular aspect of the game!" WTF? "Don't you think that the fact that there was no violence was down to the way I controlled and managed the game, SIR??" "Yes, well, mumble, mumble, maybe, anyway, well done."

That's the second time in 4 weeks that I've had that complaint. Maybe I ought to give a few dodgy decisions next time and create some aggro on the pitch as well.

What a way to start Monday:(

BTW, Scran, when I looked at the quiz last night, there had been no respondents. When I hit SUBMIT, I found that there were two other buggars who had posted just prior to me. My answers were similar, but I didn't see them before posting, so make sure the points reflect that, eh??

I've probably got two chances of that happening, slim and no!!:{ :{ :{
