    We have to wear Society kit for appointments as well as turn up in Society jackets. This is due to the sponsorship that paid for them.

    I see many Society refs wearing their Society shirts for reffing at their club. This is mainly because it gives them some gravitas. I don't really see a problem with this. At the very least it shows they are qualified to referee.

    At the end of the day all our referees are volunteers and if you start dictating to them they stop volunteering.

    Some of them have the same perspective about the Laws!
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    Then they shouldn't be volunteering. The laws and the general interpretation of them should be a hard rule, especially around foul play. If you don't want to apply the laws in the general spirit intended then you can't be a referee and nor should you be.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of volunteering, you get the people that want to do it, not necessarily the people *we* want to do it.
