This is for anyone who has missed it (sorry if I'm covering old ground):

The goblin and halfing referees are currently available for preorder on the Forge World website. They are available for a limited time only (until 26 January 2017).

"Additional rules" for the refs are going to be in White Dwarf January 2017.

I am imagining that they now have rules for a ref on the field, to sell more minis.

Otherwise you have to go back 25 years to find rules.

Well we'll find out in 2 weeks when WD comes out, but no doubt they'll be optional like the Winter pitch rules.

Here is my guess: You can block the Ref and if he is knocked out, you can foul without any consequences .

Here is another one: The Ref has the same function as the Provost in Caylus. He walks down the sideline towards the ball and only players in front of him can be activated.

Or how about this one:
The ref stands on the sideline facing towards the ball. Fouls can only be punished if the Ref has Line of Sight to the fouling player. Each player can pay a Reroll to reposition the Ref as an interrupt ( = after announcing a foul but before resolving it).

What's your guess?

I was thinking it'd be something like bribing him would get him on one side or another and adding a buff/debuff for fouling
