'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Video: Perfect Example Of Refereeing

Recently, Chris Foy and numerous other referees have been hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Remedy

Vital Manchester City member, rojo2010 added the following video via our 100% City chat forum, and to be honest I am well impressed.

This is not soccer

The referee takes two rugby players aside and lays down the law. In my opinion the Premier League and the FA should use this video as an example of how it should be done. In addition, players and team managers should also watch, listen and digest.



Would this style of refereeing work in football? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section directly below this article.

Totally support football learning from other sports who get it right more often. At the moment, referee decisions seem to be talked about every weekend. That is because they are dictating results. Whilst Komapny's tackle was naive in light of the current state of football, it was not dangerous and didn't even connect with Nini and then 5 minutes after Rooney's decision to send Kompany off, I think it was Carrick took a swing at Aguerro and connected and he didn't even get spoken to. That was a worse tackle by far and more likely to cause injury. the standard of referring has been consistently poor for some time, which meant Kompany's appeal was doomed before it was raised. Otherwise, the FA would have been deemed inconsistent having rejected a similar tackle by the Wolves guy a few weeks earlier. I'm afraid the FA are far too ignorant and arrogant to change the rules any time soon.

This sort of officiating (transparent, men with backbones) would not suit United who are gifted 12-18 points per season by referees, so we'll not see them in the Premier League, just spineless Fergie sycophants like Foy and Webb.

Yep, the rags would finish every game with 8 men if we had refs like that in the premier League.

Back of the net.

Nice1 Tudor. Yeah, it's a pipe dream and we'll be lucky to ever see such competent officiating in our game. As refereeing goes, it's so bloody effective and it rubs off on players, managers and fans alike.

I would like this kinda reffing - but for all the stopping and starting.... Nah we would always finish with 11 men cos I think we would soon learn to keep our mouths shut (Roo, Rio lol) and I think other teams would be the same.......
