It doesn’t warrant a ban I don’t think but it is a basic requirement for him to have the coin.
If the teams didn’t complain at the time then put it down to experience. It wouldn’t have taken long to get another. But it’s all a fuss about nothing

It's no less random. And more entertaining for a TV crowd. Sounds better, tbh.

So he was screwed the instant he forgot the coin, despite coming up with an equally viable alternative on the fly which actually shows great initiative.

He can't run back to get the coin as that would delay the match, and he can't borrow one from somebody in case it's biased. Very unfair on him as he managed to fulfil everything in the coin's purpose anyway.

Complete OTT.

Referees should wear headcams and mics. They get a lot of abuse these days and the FA does little to protect them.

They do wear mikes I think, a headcam might be pushing it a bit considering all the running around, not a terrible idea though.

What would it have done in this instance though? We'd just have video of the ref fumbling for a coin, swearing, looking nervous for a bit then saying 'rock paper scissor?' :P
