When you have sat alongside a ref for decades – you learn a bit.
When you sit alongside someone, who for years, lined throughout the Premiership and in two cup finals as well as reffing in the Conference – you learn a whole lot more – especially when negotiating the final mark to be given.
If you sit with match assessors – as I have done on a number of occasions – you get into the thought patterns and do not make hasty decisions.
Your final sentence will apply to some, Ferrite, but I may respectfully point out that it is hardly applicable to me – someone who has had a working lifetime endeavouring to give fair and balanced assessments.
