The standard of refereeing is in a constant state of decline. I wonder if it is partly due to technological changes/interference.

I definitely think technology has allowed refs to be more wishy washy as they know there is a safety net there for them. Interestingly on a Sunday morning I see referees who will try to rule with an iron fist and an “I’m the ref and I said so,” attitude and they’re the ones who get the least respect. Those who are transparent with the players and explain why they’re making the decisions they make always seem to be respected.

There will always be people willing to referee. They might not always be competent as we see with increasing regularity however.
