Ref, you suck is a new TSN documentary about refereeing. It’s about different sports, but we’ll also see soccer/football. One of the people they speak with is Howard Webb, general manager at PRO.
“Our self-belief is challenged all the time by the players”, says Webb in the video. “You are dealing with players who are big ego’s. They try to force you into making a mistake. And then when you do make a mistake they go crazy at you.”
TSN describes it as: “Being a referee is a job where perfection is demanded and abuse is a constant threat. Senior Correspondent Rick Westhead takes a look at the current atmosphere around officiating and the passion of those who wear the stripes.”
