Quick Links

 

 

From time to time this service will list a video incident or picture that happen in a game and your job as the referee is to interpret "What's The Call".  You can check your answer by clicking on the "red" answer link or view further video clips.  See if you agree with fellow referees or not!!!

In a minute, click the image above to view the footage, but before you watch it, keep this in mind - what offence is committed and by whom?
 

Now watch it.  Please note that you will need a suitable Media Player to view the footage.

1) Watch it once and ask yourself what offence was committed and by whom?
 

2) Watch it again. This time ask yourself if the safety of the keeper is compromised?
 

3) And again. Is the ball within or out with the keeper's control at the exact moment the attacker makes contact?
 

4) Is the attacker restricting the keepers ability to get rid of the ball within the six seconds he has?

 

Remember that Refereeing is the only profession where you have to be perfect first time out on the field of play ... and then improve!!!

Answer

You never know who's watching you!!!!!

Simulation (Dives)

This type of play is coming more and more into the modern game.  It is up to us as referees to deal with it.

The clips will let you see how very important positioning is and how, if you are out of position, you can get it all wrong.

Outside Interference (X Rated)

Often we are called upon to make a decision that is out of the ordinary!  Check out the video clip by clicking on the image below and then think of what your decision should be.   Is it the best goal you have seen?  Would you issue a caution for coming onto the field without permission?  One team has twelve players, doesn't it?  What about the player not wearing the correct equipment as specified in Law 4?  How would you restart the game?

Excessive Celebration (X Rated)

Here is another decision that is out of the ordinary!  Check out the video clip by clicking on the image below and then think of what your decision should be.   Is it one of the best goals you have seen?  What about the player's shin pads being exposed and contrary to Law 4.  Would you issue a caution for leaving the field without permission to celebrate the goal?  What about the shirt removal?  How would you restart the game?

Watering & Exposure Incident (X Rated)

From time to time we as referees are called upon to make decisions on incidents that are not part of a normal game.  Click HERE to look at at incident that needs careful consideration as to what decisions you would need to make about the incident in question.  Be careful with you answers as there could be several.
