    I left my cards/wallet in the changing room a few weeks ago.

    When I leave the changing room I now take everything I need with me, even if I am planning to go back in later .. you never know when someone will helpfully lock the room

    Looks like the ref himself, and Ref Support UK both agree me .. they accept it wasn't appropriate (the ref pleaded guilty anyway) and believe that the sanction shoins have been a written reprimand.
    Seems about right

    I have not seen anything to suggest she was the complainamt, she was commenting on the case.

    No doubt someone who was present complained

    Let's not forget the referee himself accepted that it was unprofessional, as does his advisers (they are appealing the sanction, which was harsh)

    It did seem an odd thing for a referee manager to say, I tracked down the Times article ..

    Note that it was Phil Neville who said it was a moment of madness and very unprofessional, not Stimpson

    Joanna Stimpson merely said she was disappointed


    Joanna Stimpson, the FA women’s refereeing manager, can offer no excuses for the rock, paper, scissors debacle. “Disappointed is probably the word I’d use,” Stimpson says.

    Neville has said poor refereeing is his greatest concern about next year’s World Cup

    “The referee forgot his coin and in that moment, in a TV game, he was really pushed for time, it was a moment of madness. He obviously thought it was the right thing to do, he probably walked away, or the second afterwards, thought it wasn’t the right thing to do.

    “It’s not defendable. He should have been more prepared, he should have had a coin but he didn’t. It was disappointing, it’s not appropriate, it’s very unprofessional.

    “The laws of the game state you toss a coin. I can’t think it’s something we are going to ignore. He wasn’t taking the mick out of the game, it was just a really poor decision.”
    Looking forward to seeing you reverse ferreting on JS and condemning PN !

    For Nevillie it is just a tool in his "Whingefest" aginst officials. I'd take his comments with a pinch of salt.

    The ref accepting it? Well yes forgetting your coin is "unprofessional". Finding a quick solution is not.

    THe ref accepting the charge but contesting the punishment? Well what a surprise! Just like a player who says sorry, wears a nice suit and brings the "good" bickies to the hearing because they will probably get a "low end" ban if they do. We can assume, with a fair degree of certainty, his "plea" is just politics.

    God help this ref manager and the Womans FA if they ever have something really serious to deal with. Football cant deal with the ref abuse the violent appealing wtc. But hey let's hand tis poor sod out to dry.

    Someone's got their values all wrong.

    Simply sokution, and I bet it happened !

    Assessor (post game debrief): "that was a bit dumb forgeting your coin"

    Ref: "Yep. Felt like a pillock. Still RPS seemed to work ok."

    Assesor: "It did but best not make a habit of it."

    REf: "Agreed."

    Assesor: "Right, how do you feel the game went? "


    CASE CLOSED!

    Miserable git's complaint: " Disgusting, Rant Rant Rant Daily Mail Rant!!!!!"

    Women's FA: " Thanks for contacting us t obring this to our attention. The matter was raised in the referee's debrief and dealt with appropriately." Optional but best avioded PS: "GET A LIFE LOSER"

    You still don't get it. (Or perhaps you do but are misrepresenting it ?)
    He isn't being punished for forgetting his coin, it's for making the players play RPS

    I get it perfectly! Note this bit: "Well yes forgetting your coin is "unprofessional". Finding a quick solution is not."


    The only "issue" is the lack of preparation. Something we have all done. Double and tripple check you have everything. That's it move on.

    The RPS "issue" is tosh. complete and utter codswallop. He's being punnished because some people have no sense of prespective.

    I am of the opinion that, the Women's FA and Mr Richard Cranium, the prat that complained, need a comon sense transplant.

    I hope that clarifies things for you.
