The FA’s new respect for referees campaign video

As part of their “respect” for referees campaign, the FA have brought out a viral video featuring a number of cameo appearances from ex-footballers, referees and even England manager Fabio Capello.

The video, which depicts what happens without the men in black to officiate a game, includes appearances from (Sir) Les Ferdinand, Mark Bright, Dave Beasent, Steve Claridge, Howard Webb and arguably best of all Shaun Williamson – the actor who played Barry in Eastenders.

The viral vid can be seen here, and whilst it is amusing, it is questionable if anyone would want to become a referee after seeing it. Fabio Capello sums it up: “You must be joking.”
