I'll put my cards on the table, I like the sport of football - but despise footballers. I'm a rugby ref but could never do the same for football, I couldn't take the hassle - I'm sure I'd end up snotting someone for giving me lip. Obviously this does not happen in rugby - well not twice in the same match anyway!! Interesting that kissball - oops, sorry - football is contemplating following rugby in only allowing the captains permission to speak to the ref. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/football_focus/6180564.stm Why has it taken so long?
