Shakespeare says refs have feelings too you know..

Shakespeare might have put it this way ..” Hath not a ref eyes? Hath not a ref hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as everyone else is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?”
But its not Shakespeare but Howard Webb who is saying that Ref’s actually do feel bad after making blunders….!
There is however quite a lot of evidence in “Julius Caesar” that Shakespeare’s quotations can be used to describe happenings on the soccer field.
“‘Tis very like: he hath the falling-sickness” – spoken by Brutus to Cassius in Act 1,Sc 2 and also by refs to linesmen every time they see Cristiano Ronaldo fall over in the penalty area.
You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things! ” – said by Marullus to the crowd in Act 1 ,Sc 1 and also said by Sporting Gijon’s coach the other day (to his players after they had been beaten 7 -1 by Real Madrid).
” Stand close awhile, for here comes one in haste” – said by Casca to the conspirators in Act 1,Sc III and also by all goalkeepers to their defenders when they see Lionel Messi heading towards them.
…and of course “Here was a Caesar! when comes such another?” was exactly what Drogba said when Mourinho got booted out of Chelsea.
