Hearts v Rangers, 2nd Dec 2018, 12:00

Recommended Posts

I think a goal to go 2-1 up against 10 men would have had a pretty big determination of the outcome of the game, tbf.

 

My point was mainly about disallowed goals during games in general, but it take your point about this instance though 3 pts were not guaranteed, even if it was v hearts. Didn’t Rangers struggle against 10 men in their last couple of games?

You're unlikely to see referees from Inverness or Aberdeen cover Lowland League games and vice-versa with the HL though. Last weekend the Gretna, Edusport (Annan) and Stirling Uni games were covered by referees from the west, the rest from the east - makes sense not to have referees travelling miles at a regional level.

The post from three years ago was also early in the season and as mentioned in the thread, women's games would have taken some ARs (summer season).

The West Premiership games all have ARs, and some/most Championship games as well.

Anyway, for sake of completeness - here's the games that have ARs this week:

SPFL, HL and LL (21, 9, 7)

12/17 East of Scotland + 1/1 South Challenge Cup

3/7 South of Scotland

4/4 East Superleague + 1/3 Fife and Lothians Cup

8/8 West Premiership, 7/8 West Championship

0/7 North Superleague

Women's football is played on a Sunday so doesn't impact on ref availability. Holidays will be more of an impact in the summer but with either of the above they affect each region the same.

The point being that when there are shortages of officials for whatever reason, the West copes better because they have a bigger pool to fall back on. 

The lowland league of is a southern version of the highland league. Refs from Glasgow will cover games in Edinburgh and south of Scotland etc and I think fort William in the highland league.

Ultimately it makes no difference where the ref is from. Since this thread started ranges have had games v Aberdeen and Dundee, both refs have been from Glasgow. Over the 2 games there has been a red card, a wrongly disallowed goal and a strong claim for a penalty turned down for us. Where is the bias? I'd hate to see what would go against us if this is refs helping us!
