Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore
believes top flight clubs are united in their desire
to curb refereeing conflicts.

The new season will kick off this weekend in conjunction
with the 'Get on with the game' campaign.

All 20 clubs in the Premier League have signed the charter
which will give team captains greater responsibility for
controlling their team-mates and respecting the decisions
of the match officials, and insist that the skippers are present
when team sheets are handed in so that they can receive
any specific instructions.

Television monitors will also be removed from technical areas
to avoid flashpoints involving members of coaching staff.

Scudamore is confident that the new plans will benefit the game
and help to restore some of the credibility which has been
lost in recent years.

"I have been in this job 10 years now and I sense a mood
for something to happen," he said.

"We want the passion and rivalries.
What we don't want is some of that
blatant disrespect and abuse."

"We have reached the stage where the
whole situation needs correcting," he added.

Exactly. Imagine, would Neville, in a match vs Liverpool Neville saying "excuse me ref don't you think that was a foul?" Hell no! Football is about passion and commitment so emotions are always gonna be high.

And I mean, how the hell can you show respect to crap referees? Steve ****** Bennet!? Mark 'jesus god'(as fergie would say) Clattenberg?

We have been the victim of so many none penalties its unbelievable. Before they tell players how to talk to refs the FA need to talk to the refs about how to do there job properly!

As a ref personally, I like when players talk to me, even talk back, cause it lets you know the tempers of the players during the game. To be honest, I am always most cautious when no one is talking. If the player gives you more lip than you like, you just pull the caution out. If the don't get the hint, you keep writing and pull it out again. I think it is up to the referees to enforce it more than anything. They get to scared to book a star player, (I know from MLS guys that theytry not to book the stars as much as possible, since they are the ones the fans pay to see), but that thinking is so backwards. It is up to the players to police themselves, the referee merely tells the what the get when they fail to do so.

i think thats really intresting hearing that from the other side, and its intresting to know that you like players to talk to you, i think thats pretty good and respectful.

so why do you think the FA would inforce such a thing, do you think its the refs asking for it or is it just the FA acting to some mums complants about a player chatting to ref and her son copying it?

I think its a little bit of everything. Too much political correctness in the world, and Riley's failure to deal with Ashley Cole, or when referees fail to deal with teams when their players surround them (like Chelsea, and occasionally us in the past.)

To cut out all communication like many have said to be like rugby would be a travesty because part so much of what makes footy so great is the communication. Players need to be able to ask what the call was so they don't get penalized again. It is shocking to me how tough it is for some of the refs to do the little things that will keep them out of trouble. For instance, a little trick, that most referees are taught, that you see very few high level ones actually employ though :rolleyes:, is after you call a foul in the box for a penalty, backpedal off the field by the goal. This shows that any player, other than the captain (and maybe the goalie since all goalies are not right in the head) are coming to you. If they step off the pitch, no matter what they say, give them a Yellow card for "Leaving the field of play without permission", not for dissent. Granted, if they come over friendly, with a question about the call there is no need to book them, but if you have 5 players step off the pitch, even if they aren't saying anything, book them. The players are smart and once they start getting suspended from games, they realize where the line is.

Bottom line, if the referees want respect, then they should show respect and do their jobs correctly.
