The FA says "Respect the Ref"

The English FA has recently released a video called "Respect" which is part of their campaign to reduce dissent towards officials. There's some cameos by a couple of big names including Fabio Capello and Howard Webb. It's a pretty funny video, check it out.

A brief excerpt about the subject from Reuters UK:

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore told the FA's website ( "Football engages, motivates and inspires -- but at times we know it can spill over and get ugly.

"The Premier League, our clubs, the players and the referees are all engaged; we want to make sure that this ends up being much more than a campaign and results in making unacceptable behaviour just that. Unacceptable."
