Nothing wrong with fascist principles, claims Referees’ Association

Paolo di Canio has received support from an unexpected source, the national Referees’ Association, which has issued a statement praising the ideology of radical authoritarianism but only, they stressed, on match days.

The statement goes on to say that the Referees’ Association firmly believe that a single jumped-up, self-important man who acts as if people have come purely to see him should have indisputable power, even if many onlookers consider him to be ‘a bit of a twat’.

During his playing days, Paolo di Canio had a few run-ins with referees, most famously when he pushed Paul Alcock to the ground after being sent off for Sheffield Wednesday, resulting in a lengthy ban. ‘But that is all in the past and I have a close affinity with referees nowadays,’ he said. ‘Which is why I’ve launched a campaign to get them back into their more appropriate, traditional, authoritarian black shirts.’
