The refereeing standard this season seems to be worse than previous seasons and I get the impression that the majority of referees are out of their depth. There must be a reason why they are so poor. I feel that the game has overtaken the officials and they have failed to keep up. I think it is time to bring in ex professional players as referees as they do in other sports. At least ex professionals have more of an insight into the technical side of the game, something I think current referees don't have. Any thoughts?
