    Another soccer own goal here. officialdom gone mad.

    Whoever complained, needed to be given a 'not interested' message from the game, whatever next .....

    ps.. Surprised soccer refs aren't permitted to carry a tazer !

    pps, reminds me of a U10's festival a few years back , where the kick off was decided with an arm wrestle by the coaches, a lighthearted way to get the game underway - enjoyed by most watchers

    The complainant? From the above article: "After the match, FA women’s refereeing manager Joanna Stimpson spoke to The Times, and branded his decision “very unprofessional” and “a moment of madness.” " So problably perceiving a slight on the women's game.

    Tosh. A simple forgetting of the coin, could happen to any of us (and has to a lot). Ref thought on his feet and resolved the situation quickly and they got on with the game. Now a jobsworth wants to go on a power trip. Pathetic!

    This isn't about forgetting a coin, which could happen to anyone

    It's about making captains play rock paper scissors .. which is an error of judgement. He should have gone and fetched his coin

    CR, you seem to be the only person who thinks the sanction was ok.

    On another note I once left the three match balls in my changing room, which was then locked up.

    No I think the sanction was too harsh .

    It should have been a reprimand . . .

    When you forgot the balls I am sure you fessed up, and made sure they were retreived, I bet you didn't say : it's not important we will play with the warm up balls?

    Funnily enough the lesson I learnt was never to take responsibility for the match balls. Not my job thanks.
