“No ref needed” – Rodric Leerling

5 fouls signalIt was one of those typical low ranking futsal games I had to take last week. Because I really was assigned for the 2nd, higher ranked game, I had to ref this one as part of the package.

These guys, however, normally play their games without a ref and behaved no different with me around. This lead to weird situations with balls in an out, the odd hand ball and restarts after a goal. My whistle signal was hardly noticed, hand signals not checked. They always sorted things out between them and it went fine, really.

I let it go and decided to just observe and not impose myself too much just because I’m the assigned Association ref. Instead, I used the time to mentally design another blog. The next game would demand my full attention again. Yet another blog.
