READING – Pages 154-155

It’s the referee’s job to make sure that players adhere to the rules when playing sports and to make decisions on disputed calls. Ensuring fair play and making controversial decisions inevitably makes a referee the victim of anger and frustration.
He has to be able to sort out arguments among players, placate spectators and defend himself against the aggression of both without resorting to violence himself.

People see him as being different, but he isn’t.
He has always had ability.
We all make mistakes.
He has to be prepared to see the best in people or else he would not be able to do his job fairly.

tendency – inclination

1. He’s fit and moves like a youngster.
2. He reaches a good position through hard work at various levels.
3. I had completely forgotten that he had been the referee that night. (The implication is that he is a good referee.)

A: I’d say it’s very important, surely it’s the whole basis on which sport and sportsmanship was originally founded. If people don’t play fair, then who can be sure the best man won?
B: I’m afraid I’d have to disagree with you. I think that’s a bit of an old-fashioned attitude. Nowadays, with so much money at stake, in the form of prize money, sponsorship and advertising, the best man doesn’t always win, but the one who is willing to do anything to win, which means cheating in every possible way.

conscientious – he takes his job seriously (voted as the best)
hard-working – he has another job as well as refereeing
respectable – voted best referee
principled – he hates cheating/diving
