“It’s out “boomed the ref ,”no goal “screamed the man with the whistle, “offside”says the man in white. Have you ever felt like on Saturday sport the ref has made a bad call, or the other team has told the ref the ball was out when it wasn't, or that someone had fouled them when they hadn't? My claim is that we should have proper refs and that everyone should know the rules and play fairly.
For example ,sometimes the other team encourages the ref to make the wrong call when the ref can't see it. In one of my football games I was running down the sideline and the ball just touched the line and the defender flung his hand in the air and told the ref it was out but the rule is the whole ball has to be over the line. I was so annoyed because I could have kept going and scored or set someone else up to score. To fix this I think everyone should know the rules and play fairly.
I also think that we should have proper refs that know the rules because it's usually our coaches or a parent that sometimes don't know the rules and just listen to what the players say. It's really frustrating because I know the rules and other people don't. So I think the refs should know the rules and make the right calls, although sometimes it can be difficult. I think that a way to solve this is that every parent gets a brief summary of the rules. To read themselves and for the children when they sign their kid up. They could also do a short refs course if they want to ref some of their child's games instead of having proper refs that cost money. I think that all teams should have at least one qualified ref or your team can't play. Maybe each club should run refereeing courses for parents at their club rooms at the start of the season.
I think every player should play fairly and not argue with the ref in some of my games. It's abysmal as my dad would say! A way to stop this is that the ref needs to call fouls and there should be red and yellow cards for fouling and arguing with the ref at all ages. Hopefully that will make people stop.
Overall I think that we should all learn the rules and play fairly. The refs should be qualified and take time to teach younger players the rules
