Re: Players surrounding referees

In recent matches Iíve seen in the premier league every game there has been a number of players surrounding the referee after a decision hasnít gone their way. Do we think that the FA/premier league are going to do anything about this?

As employees, if they wish to progress, they will do their employer's bidding who appear not to want proper disciplinary sanctions because it 'ruins the entertainment' factor. Talking to a senior referee recently I detected that there is a willingness on the part of match officials to take a more robust line but they fear it will hamper their progress. Caught between a rock and a hard place. Easy to say that the referees should show independence of mind and act but as in most walks of life, the chasing of promotion tends to trump everything else.
