I made sure to be in shape on time. Made extra runs on the beach this summer in Brittany, used the mountainbike and took care a slight foot injury healed well.
The football assoc planned my first game already early July so I made sure to be home on time. And then the two teams decided to postpone their game. Probably called each other earlier in the week.But no call to me as ref, no apology, just a standard email with a new date in my mailbox at 5pm on Friday, 20 hours before kick-off.
I feel let down. Not appreciated. Decided per immediate to stop reffing future cup games which are just used to test new teams anyway. Cancelling competition games are penalized but Cup games are taken less serious apparently.
Well, you can count me out. I will wait for the real competition. A complaint letter is the only thing I can do to air my frustration. And writing this blog of course. More to follow soon. Stay tuned.
