Professionalism
Professionalism
• We are not professional referees, but referees
that are professional
• “Paycheck Referee” vs “Love of Game Referee”
– Regardless, it is still a JOB
• Any other job requires you to be on-time, in
correct attire, manage your schedule, behave
accordingly, etc
Professionalism
• You don’t have to want to upgrade or referee in
World Cup
• Expecting professionalism from everyone
• Have no problem with games uncovered due to
unprofessional referees not getting games
Professionalism
