Pay the referees more...

Is that the answer. They get about 65000 a year in the Premier league plus 1000 a game. Peanuts compared with the players !

Still a very good wage for 180 minutes a week.
I don't think it would make them any better, they went "full time" quite a few years back so can't devote anymore time to it than they already do.
No kid grows up thinking i want to be a ref when i'm older so offering more money wouldn't get you a better calibre of referee.
Don't think refereeing is any worse than in the past but every decision now gets analysed to within an inch of it's life.
