According to the Terminator films, man?made machines will arrive sometime in the future where they become self-aware and take over the world. Given the speed at which football embraces technology, it's safe to assume that referees will be the last human sacrifice. In the meantime we will have to hope that we can produce a few more officials like Howard Webb, who has the task of taking charge of Manchester United and Chelsea on Sunday.

It continues.

The reason I thought it should go on here is because of this paragraph.

This showmanship could be the result of a few things: either the teams he is refereeing have given him a hard time in the not too distant past or, just as likely, the referee in question personifies his performance. Whatever the reason, some games have certainly been ruined by these flaws. For the record, Rob Styles embodied all of those characteristics.
