oh that... well in Germany refs in professional football/soccer make about 3000 Euros per game (they're still volunteers!), in England, Spain and Italy even more. However there were several bribe scandals and calls for paying them even better to prevent corruption...

Don't look at the game with rules-tinted glasses; look at the rules with game-tinted glasses!

Just for the record, I was more shocked that a ref could get paid $2,000 a game for anything, let alone derby.

NFL Refs make 12,000 a game.
NFL Line-judges make 10,000 a game.

mo' money - mo' problems... ;)

and jz: adapted from Bill Shankly (modified):
"Some people say Derby is a matter of life and death - I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it's much, much more than that."


Don't look at the game with rules-tinted glasses; look at the rules with game-tinted glasses!
