    Broad shoulders and narrow waist for those that may care is what that means. The mesomorph body time.

    My query is not with the current batch of referees but rather how they got there.

    All very anecdotal, colleague at work was progressing through the ranks a couple of years ago and had passed everything required. He was then told that to progress he would need to change his body shape (apparently a V shape is required) and he should take up an admin role in the local committee. Didnít inspire him, which combined with the commitments of a young family, led him away from refereeing.

    Combined with what appears to be a dominance by West of Scotland associations (canít find the news article atm) the problem is less about the current batch of referees. The issue is the system that filters out potentially better candidates.

    A guy I know from school referees juniors and possibly runs the line at League 2 games and was told the same thing about his body composition. Fit as a fiddle but because he doesnít Ďlook rightí (he looks fine btw) he wonít go any further until that changes.

    I'm no expert but I think this is what they mean by a v-shaped body...

    That's the one!






    p.s. I'm currently typing this in the Cafe under the Main Stand at Hampden Park. Maybe I should go and speak to some SFA high heid yin and ask them what their appointment process is.

    That's what I had in the back of my mind tbh

    So, in effect, the guy in question was told to shed some timber?

    He was 6í2Ē passing every fitness test put in front of him which is why it is strange. Not a beanpole but didnít seem to be carrying much if any weight.

    Given the referees only need to lift a whistle to their mouth, whilst assistants carry a flag, identifying with a bodyshape thatís predicated on upper body strength seems strange. Would have thought that aerobic fitness and endurance would be more important

    As funny as it is, itís worrying that this buffoon isnít demoted. He is an awful ref.
    I agree with this, funny because its against them but another terrible decision

    It cant be a coincidence that most of our managers in recent times have complained about the very very poor refereeing standards.
    Is it not about time the clubs got together and strike, mid December for one week would be a good time, send out a message that were not prepared to put up with biased or such poor refereeing.

    Just watched Stuart Dougal on BT. The way he defends the decisions over the last few days shows why the refs never get disciplined - basically itís ok for them to make a mistake because players miss penalties sometimes.

    Thought he came across badly and offered very little insight.

    Craig T came across much better and was clearly open to the proposed VARS pilot by BT.

    They always come across badly when they defend the indefensible. Former players turned pundit will criticise a player when they make a mistake but itís against the refereeing code. It makes them look ridiculous and low on integrity.

    Sky have a guy on every Monday to go over referring decisions and he isnít scared to say when a refs got it wrong. Up here theyíre all in the same lodge so they wonít say anything against each other.

    United we stand here....
