October 20, 2004
After my moan yesterday about how cold and dark it is getting now, I have to grumble about the rain (well it'ld be unfair on Cold and Dark if I didn't). Upon reading yesterdays Boar I now have the feeling that todays Mens Football matches up Cryfield will be fun with the fact that they should deffinatly be up for it and that the pitches will be soaked (good sliding tackle weather) OH! sorry the reason for my concern is that I am the referee today. Another thing that worried me was that "John" (as the Boar reported) or Bob as his real name is (if the Boar can't even get his name right what hope have we got for anything else in the paper) NEVER gives out cards so how bloody bad was this "brawl". Oh well that was then this is now I suppose, we'll just have to wait and see how it goes, should be fun though.
Talking about refereeing discovered something new last week, apparently turning to an opponant and shouting in there face "You fat f*%ing pr*k" is not Foul, Offensive, Abusive or Insulting, it's amazing how little I know about the english language. The player was sent off, the reason being that he was trying to start a fight with the player for the previous 10minutes and had already been warned about his language as the game was being played 50yards from a cemitary. The amusing thing was though, after the game the 18yr old lads father came upto me "Ref, why did you send him off" "He shouted in an opponants face "You fat f*%ing pr*k" "He did not referee, he did not swear he said "You fat pr*^k" *WHAT!!! * , so anyway you learn something new everyday, saying that though for some reason TheFA seemed to agree with me and gave the player a 21day suspension oh and an additional 28days for his comments after the game, which I suppose he wasn't swearing then either, I would type what he said but i'd suspect my account will be suspended quicker then the drink prices around campus go up.
