A senior official inside the SFA a few days ago challenged a Grade One referee about the impending strike.
This referee is considered one of the best in Scotland.
He is a white collar professional and is highly articulate.
The SFA official asked:
“What will be achieved in seven days? What will you referees get that you have never had in the past?”
In other words what was the strike for?
The highly articulate, educated white collar professional could not give an answer to the SFA official.
The SFA official then merely concluded that this threatened strike was about posturing. “It’s saying ‘don’t fuck with us!’ It is saying ‘we’re indispensable’ that’s what it is saying.”
