If they're not (allegedly) giving all the decisions in Rangers favour, they're talking about going on strike.............

They want more money. It's not about being paid as much as footballers of course, but they want 800 a week to referee a match.

A bit crazy really, its all due to the media stress for them, they can't handle it the poor buggers.

We'll find some scabs somewhere.

800? That's a bit steep epecially when you consider that the total gate money for a game between The Buddies and The Accies would be about half that :)

Exactly! Apparently referees in Norway get more. I have no idea if they are professional referees in Norway, but our referees are amateurs, they already have full-time jobs.
