The day after the FA introduce a "Respect for referees" campaign, we're treated to the unedifying spectacle of Ashley Cole assaulting a fellow pro (never a tackle), then refusing to face the referee that dared to show him a yellow card. Chuck in the Chelsea Experts on the rules (Terry, Lampard, and surprise, surprise, Drogba) to give their expert opinions on what a pratt the ref is, and you get a right disgraceful exhibition of bad sportsmanship, and bad manners. To show that I am not-anti Chelski, week in, week out, little Mr Rooney has his incessant foul mouthed rant at officialdom, that only SKY seems to pick up, and the officials never seem to hear. If there was a swearbox on the touchline, he could BUY Great Ormond Street, let alone buy a new kidney machine or whatever. These teams aren't the only ones who do it - they all do, but what sort of example does this to the impressionable kids who idolise these people ? I saw a kids gane the other week, where a 10 year old have the ref a right gobful of abuse, and the parents wanted to attack the ref when he sent him off. It's about time the refs got a pair of balls and started sending people off for this sort of thing - it's within their powers by the rules, and the FA grew a pair and dished out lengthy suspensions and fines that make an impression in these overpaid prima donnas wallets. Anyone out there got any thoughts ?
