There aren't many comic strips about those poor maligned individuals who referee football matches. But the Hotspur did publish one series about Sid Ross, a World Cup referee. This series sees the man in the middle as the hero and some of the unsporting players and extreme fans getting their come-uppance. The refs getting their own back, you could say.
Forget about supporting a national team this World Cup, support the referees.
The following adventures of Sid Ross are from the Hotspur 346, 349, 350 & 354. Further on down the page is Scruffy's Guide to the World Cup 1966. Interesting snippets of information about various World Cup teams.
