Thousands of people participate and officiate in football each weekend across northern NSW. Over time, a minority have unfortunately decided that it is ok to:
- Abuse referees, both official and volunteers
- Scream and yell at players, coaches and officials
- Criticise performance rather than celebrate effort
- Ignore, manipulate, and question rules and decisions
It doesn’t need to be like this, but it will take all of us to fix the problem and make a genuine culture shift.
Share your experiences.We want to know about your football experiences, good and bad, and ideas to improve the culture within our game.
