There's something strangely heartwarming about a high profile referee being a real fan.
Martin Atkinson is a massive Leeds fan, but no footage of him a la Dean as far as I know
I presume all refs have to make it clear to the FA/FL etc. what teams they support which obviously precludes them from getting that team's games and any other games which may have an obvious effect on that team's season.
Therefore perhaps we should try and persuade some refs to become Reading supporters.
