Best and worst Refs?
Question is who is your number 1 ref and why and also your worst ref and why? To avoid any trouble this is outside the Uk so they must be from America or say another country.
Favourite Big John reason he was the first ref I watched on my first viewing of the sport.
most underrated ref?

Best refs: Big John and Herb Dean
Worst: Winslow is hands down the worst in my eyes. Mazzagatti is also not great.
Most underrated is Mario Yamasaki by a country mile. The guy is such a solid ref. He deserves more credit.
Yeah Big John and Herb Dean are the 2 best for me although I dont think Marc Goddard is 2 far away
Refs dont come much worse than Winslow and Mazzagatti.
Great shout about Mario Yamasaki.
Im gona come at you like a SPIDERMONKEY.....you hear that a SPIDERMONKEY
Best Ref: Herb Dean
Worst Ref: Anyone on any giving day...
Most Underrated: Andy Sledge
cant see past big john. Its a difficult job and anyone can make a mistake.
Worst - Kim Winslow or the one we cant speak of
Under rated - I like Josh Rosenthal or leon roberts

Yeah sledge is quality. Lots of incredible refs up and down the country. In some ways fighters almost put their own well being into their hands. That is an enormous compliment. To trust them to save your fucking life if everything goes tits up.
Hate to fall in with trolly op, but after seeing Kim Winslow allow that continued assault by cyborg, not sure I would trust her to protect me. I haven't studied tape on her. Not saying she's all bad. But that single incident would make me think twice. Worst show by a ref since that dumb cunt waved a fighter in to soccer kick a beaten opponent on bvt
'maybe on reflection that was a genuine grievance and not a gimmick. '
Totally true about Leon - great gent too.
