I'm a referee too... and this confused the hell out of me
on 6 June 2011
I have to disagree with the other reviewer who is a referee. I am an amateur referee and I pride myself on being knowledgeable on the laws of the game, so when I was given some spending money for my birthday I thought I would treat myself by buying this dvd and the other Prozone Referee Academy dvd. The main problem I have with this dvd is that on a number of occasions the answers given are not consistent with the clip as to what actually took place!! For example, on one clip the answer is "a two footed tackle is always a sending off offence" and then when you watch the clip the player is cautioned with a yellow card!! There have been a least 3 inconsistencies I have found so far in this manner. Another frustration is that within the first hour of playing the game I was already seeing question clips repeated so I knew the answer as the game was already repeating itself, which is not great for a £20 game. All in all, not recommended as a serious learning tool, but may be for a bit of fun if you are not taking it seriously, and you have a terrible memory!!
