This is proof that not all refs is bleedin' blind innit!
  And this ref should never have been suspended by the (very appropriately named) FA.  I admit I'd never even heard of this intervention by a referee called Brian Savill - so I had to do a sneaky bit of googling. And I found this story from 2001...

Brian Savill (Earls Colne v Wimpole 2000)


"The Football Association suspended referee Brian Savill for seven weeks after he intervened to help out Wimpole 2000 when [they were already] losing 18-1 in a Great Bromley Cup game away to Earls Colnes' reserve team.

"The ball came over from a corner, the Wimpole forward headed it and it came to me,"
Savill told BBC Radio Five Live. "I chested it down, or armed it down, and the ball bounced up and I just volleyed it into the net."

He added: "I went roaring up the field, blowing the whistle and signalling a goal. There were about 20 or 30 people watching. Half were standing there in bewilderment and the other half were clapping and laughing. An Earls Colne player shook my hand and said, 'Well done!' It was done in a good humour - Wimpole were getting thrashed."

Wimpole eventually lost 20-2 and Savill, accusing the authorities of having "no sense of humour", resigned in protest at his suspension."


I can't say I blame him.
