Give ALL the refs a big Thank You!!!


He awakes to the sound of R.O.A.R.S.
He is utterly alone.
He never gets applause.
He stands aloof and apart.
The arbiter.
Whose whistle speaks -
such that even loud-mouthed
Bastards shut-up.
He is dressed all in black.
The MatchMaker.
Who sensibly allows artists and ballplayers to become
Football Poets.
He makes the crowd jump.
Only whistles when absolutley necessary.
The game flows beautifully.
Both sides hate him! Managers often hate him.
And yet - each player knows that without him
The game is pure chaos, not an archy,
And who wants that?

OK , So maybe our referees don't wear black but they make it possible for us to play each week. Make sure to give them all a huge thank you!!! They do it because they love the game.

I hate referees...

..and Dennis Gould too.

Just kidding guys and gals. You're doing a great job. Without you we wouldn't be able to play a serious game.

Will someone let the refs know that we have an eye doctor on our team?
