Referee William Smallwood; Assistants Edward Pidduck & Christopher Hunter

Not sure which assistant it is that's involved. Accusation is that something was said and that's what has lead to the dismissal. Definitely interesting video as you can see it building.

Nothing really to comment on this video - impossible to tell what it was for, that leads us to assume it was OFFINABUS but unsure for what. So can't really comment here.

I could, however, comment on how the AR handled the substitution......

See now we have an argument that only the assistant can answer. Was the player on the FOP at the point he said it?

If not then it's wrong in law obviously as Andy Robinson was still a substitute at that point and, as the manager states in his interview, should have been dismissed but kept 11 men.

I was thinking that earlier, if he has said it (whatever it is) whilst still off the pitch then the substitution hasn't happened and they should have kept 11 players.

If the FA see this I suspect the referee and assistant could well face being charged and probably suspended, or at least asked for their observations. The only get out they have is to say that he said it after he had entered the pitch. Looking at it that may well the case, as he seems to react and raise the flag after the player has walked away from him, and if I was a betting man I would guess he has said something like "f***ing jobsworth".

Are you expected to ask players to roll up their shorts to check for incorrectly coloured undershorts? :o/>

On first viewing, before I even knew what happened, I was beginning to think "He's being pretty persistent with the checks and Robinson is clearly not helping, he's going to get a jobsworth comment"

After I wondered whether he was on the pitch or not, there is a definite reaction to something from the assistant referee and at the point I notice the reaction Andy Robinson is on the pitch.

If, during the course of playing the shorts role up and incorrectly coloured undershorts are found (and noticed by the assessor) then it'll be treated as a failure in equipment check. Also, players sometimes role sleeves and shorts further down than they naturally go during the checks.

Used to be, but referees were told to stop doing it a few years ago. That said, most players do it automatically without being asked.

I've never been told to do it and don't actually actively do it. Obvious issues if you're officiating a game with the opposite gender to yourself.
