Referee abuse

It seems that the Scottish referee's association are striking to protest at the abuse of officials during and after matches in the Scottish premeier League. About time too. I'm surprised that a similar action has not been taken in England, where officials ought to insist that until they are treated with respect they will not  officiate in matches. This is not only for players but also Club management. Of course referees and linesmen make mistakes and the stakes are now incredibly high, but nevertheless they should be allowed to officiate a game without being physically or verbally abused.
