THE DON: Where’s the respect gone?

Share this

This week on The Don we discuss respect, or rather the lack of it, towards officials in today’s modern game.

Speaking to Your Sport Swindon’s Craig Punfield, Swindon Town legend Don Rogers believes it’s the responsibilities of the county FA’s to come down hard on the offenders.

A recent survey in the Telegraph suggested the Respect campaign launched by the English Football Association back in 2008 had lost pace and Rogers tends to agree.

However, while Rogers believes both players and supporters should show more respect towards the officials, he doubts the abuse will ever stop.
