First of all, I had to write the tournament rules in a new post. As I am not a moderator in the tournament section, I could not edit Steve's post.
Steve, I wanted to ask you about what you said the other day.. will the next tournament be held at the winner's country? (or, should I say, at the best placed non-British player's country). If it's your final decision, we could put it in the rules.
I would also like everyone's comments on something Vasilis said to me the other day. Have you considered the possibility of a completely ruined final because of a bad referee? I remind you, the final is 2x10 minutes. If the referee is Screech or Zappa, one or both teams are apt to finish the game with 4-5 players each!
So what I'm saying is.. FIFA appoints their best refs for finals, why shouldn't we do the same? I vote for Fernandez in the final.

Hey, don't do that! The referee must to be random!
I don't want to choose a referee because Fernandez isn't the best referee for me, but I think is very good for Alkis, and also for Franco, then I don't want to give this kind of advantage in the final match. The computer have to choose the referee, this is the most democratic thing.

I think the referee for the final should be decided by the two players taking part.

We all know that some of the players do an auto-slide and fowl and if the referee is on auto-send off mode then that would ruin the final.

Yeah i think that if both competitors decide on the same ref then fine, other than that it's same as always....RANDOM. Don't fear the Screech

My opinion about the ref in the final is that he should be set to random or if both players agree then any ref is possible. It shouldn't be Mr Fernandez. I have great respect for this man, what he has done in the last 11 years, but he is far too friendly. I think he doesn't know about yellow or red cards in football, maybe he doesn't even posses some. I don't remember Fernandez to give a player a card.
So it's a clear advantage for the aggressive player if we use Fernandez in the final (injuries, and the possibility that the aggressive one could 'foul out' the team of the other player)

Just set the ref to random and live with it: if you want to play like Beckham get sent off like Beckham!
I was down to 8 men for most of a game against Bro last night and it was a tough fight to scrape a point - 0 vs 0 believe it or not!
A final with 8 men each would be....interesting...

@ref
RANDOM, that's fair and doesn't support the people who 'fouls' generally.

@next tournament
How can we handle the amount of participants?
How many, and which people get a permission?

Random ref it is, then. The people have spoken. Unless, of course, the two guys in the final agree on a referee (according to the rules, they can choose one in that case).
Klaus, Fernandez does give yellow and red cards, just not too often. I think he's the most fair referee. Maybe it's I.Ball you're thinking of.
Steve, you still haven't answered my question. Will next tournament be held at the best placed non-Brit's country?
