" We should give more thought to helping referees than criticizing them.
In fact, the referee is the very figure in our sport who deserves the most protection and objectivity. Only a strong personality can be a good referee and only a person who is supported and respected from all sides,
and not just the official one, can show strength."

Baharmast's call on this shirt-tug gave Norway the PK that put them through to the second round of France '98. His decision was the subject of controversy until this image, from a Swedish television crew, showed that he made the proper call.

American refs on the rise

"As far as our training program, I�ll put it against anybody�s in the world," says Esse Baharmast, Director of Advanced and International Referee Development for U.S. Soccer. CSN's Ed Bazan talks with Baharmast about American referees.
