Tonight's Ref
« on: September 13, 2017, 11:37:56 PM »
To give credit where it is due, I thought tonight's referee Tim Robinson had a very good game. I'd like to say well done.

agree generally, best we've had for a while

although how he left ayite down holding his head, then made him get checked for concussion and go off, then later on when a hull player dropped when we had 3 players clean through he puts whistle straight to lips and all we got was a bloody drop ball, totally unfair

also they committed 15 fouls according to bbc, he has to be getting the cards out with that many

Sorry there were not any fouls that deserved cards in my opinion. Some comman sense word in the ear is the right way.
The other thing is he did make mistakes but all humans do. However he never looked biased and always had control

agree
I thought he was very good, fair, and his decision making was mostly very good.

It wasn't a very 'dirty' game and only a couple of debatable dangerous tackles so, no great need to brandish the cards.

From what I saw, Frazier Campbell was only doing what beefy strikers do and nothing nasty like
purposeful elbows in the face stuff.

So If the same player makes 2, 3, 4 fouls you just keep letting that go as long as individually each one of them isn't that bad? That's the same situation we had with hoilett on Saturday, fouling over and over, none of them that bad on their own but everyone was screaming for him to be booked simply because he kept doing it

I think there is too much card waving from referees. I never like to see sending offs as it always spoils the game. I accept that sometimes it is inevitable but once a player gets booked there is only one decision to be made the next time it happens

Decent ref. Deserves credit. Then again, Colin wasn't present. And however you might criticise Hull, they weren't playing the kind of championship football that frequently results in injuries. Credit to Mr Slutsky.

It was an open game with less cynical fouling than Saturday so that made it easy for the ref but some of his decisions were wrong as Statto has described.

Its a bit over the top to praise someone for doing an average job!

Agree with BTA.  The referee is there to do a good job and praising or crediting Mr Robinson suggests to me that the general standards of refereeing in the Championship are actually abysmal.   He did his job - why the mention?

Was not a fan personally. Thought he was generally poor.

But I wasn't at the game at the weekend so my review may be skew-wiff.

if the same player keeps fouling and say commited 3 then he should be booked, thats simple it is called persistant fouling and that is an offence. You see the refs showing them how many when they issue it.

It would be interesting to create a graph plotting overall opinion of ref on here against the result for FFC.

A referees job is not to always be right as that is impossible. Some players cheat and do things behind the officials back deliberately. As long as a ref is consistent you cannot demand more. The same with the players football is an emotive game and the ref won't always get decisions correct. I'm sure people like Colin play on tha deliberately. However when a referee does a decent job I believe he deserves praise

Thought his name was Harrington? Or was that a lino.

Anyway. Agree with Statto.
Apart from a couple of things in the second half, pretty good considering the dire standard we've had so far.

A good result and much needed. But we make such hard work of it.
