Was there not a PL ref who forgot his cards on one occasion and had to simulate a yellow card? What happened to him? OK, cards may not appear in the Laws of the Game in the same way as coins, but similarly embarrassing but nothing more in my view. Did nobody at the toss up have a coin with them? ARs, photographers, mascots.....? Whole episode is ridiculous in my view  ::)

Well it seems the Royal Navy FA have a sense of humour even if the FA don't.

The more I think about it the more incensed I get, this incident has done nothing to improve moral amongst officials it will do nothing to encourage people to take up the whistle, and imo has only tarnished the FA reputation. They say he did not act in tge best interests of the game but surely he did just that? The only people not acting in the best interests of the game in this instance is the fa. This isnt funny its an outrage and the fact someone at the fa hasnt realised their enormous **** up and rescinded this stupidity has only further made English football a laughing stock. Pathetic FA shame on you.

I think the Navy RA's response was just superb - love it.

I have always thought that the FA is an organisation that lacks common sense, and indeed a sense of humour.  This episode only underlines that view.

Another ridiculous, bordering on disgusting, decision from an ever increasingly out of touch elitist minority who couldn’t give a toss about football outside the professional game!
Sitting on the fence eh ajb? 😝

Joking apart, agree with you 100%. Pathetic

Finally...! Something we agree on. Took a while! 😉👏😃

Is this the start of a beautiful friendship...!🤪

I wouldn't put too much weight on that article.  They are making a right mess of the appeal, making grand statements on Facebook about big news and then just announcing that the referee has told them he will be appealing.

I suspect this won't end well for the referee.  It was all well and good for Ryan Hampson getting their help as he was a level 7 just starting out, a level 2B going down the same route could well be killing his refereeing career.

Martin Cassidy and Janie Frampton seem to be the main two behind it, full list is here - https://refsupport.co.uk/who-we-are/

I trust that their motivation is supporting referees, giving them the best advice possible and not wanting to simply bloody the noses of the FA. Not sure this was quite the issue to build such a campaign around, however draconian i believe it to be.

If that were to be the case then the FA would not be acting honestly I don’t think they would do that . I think that currently they cannot fathom a way out of an appallingly incompetant decision and save face .  It’s a balls up !

If you are going to appeal an FA decision that you have not acted in the best interests of the game I would venture to suggest that publicly accepting a commemorative coin is not the best decision he has ever made.

Maybe , but the FA are the ones who have handled this appallingly they are in no position to question anyone’s P.R
They could have nipped this in the bud quickly and overturned this stupid decision gaining some much needed kudos in the process. Instead they have been pig headed and definitely not acted in the games bst interests .
