A not so interesting flashback…
Travel began again at the start of the week and there was going to be a significant break for refereeing. In fact, I didn’t imagine anything coming up in the near future.
I’ve been more cognizant of refereeing in other countries and how referees source their equipment so I’ve been visiting sports equipment stores around. It was interesting to see the range of quality and market prices. This is truly a global game impacted by so many cultures involved with it.
It was 9pm on Monday night. I had my forehead leaning on the glass as the rain was pounding outside. I wasn’t in a great mood.
Had I made the wrong decision?
I was in the gym pondering the Sunday morning game.
It’s not often I take a weekday game but Thursday was an exception.
Being concise and direct is key to effective communication so my goal is to keep posts shorter in the future.
I sat in a referee training camp the past weekend and one particular slide stuck in my mind. Something to think on in life aside from a football refereeing career.
I figured out, later, that it is from a book titled The Ideal Team Player.
Another year, another edition of the Laws of the Game. IFAB Laws of the Game that is.
After last year’s mouthful of changes, IFAB seems to have opened the floodgates to trying things new because anything and everything is being approved for experimentation.
April is turning out to be quite the footballing festival but it’s all culminating to the biggest bi-annual match in world football; El Clasico.
