Don't see why. We know how he referees, so, play accordingly; he has very little trouble with players on the field and he's fit so keeps up with play.
I know many don't like Kendall and to be fair, Liam Moore has improved this season but who would you prefer: Vella? Smith?

Liam Moore all day long, Kendal just appears to grab penalties out of nowhere and always seems to hammer us early on in games, yes we know how he refs but when you are left scratching your head at what a penalty was for then how can you play to the ref

Penalties all against one team in 5he first half time and then a few against the other team in the second half so he looks even handed....nearly.

You’ll remember it was Liam Moore that sent off Joe Shorrocks in last year’s semi final against the same opponents and contributed to us missing out on the Final !

If Mikey Lewis hadn’t stayed in the floor as if he’d been poleaxed Shorrocks may not have got sent off! Then got up after the sending off & carried on playing!!

I mean, Mikey Lewis playacting? It's so hard to believe!

Hence the old saying -
Why do people take an instant dislike to Mikey Lewis?
It saves time. (I'm here all week etc.)

My memory is not what it was so I will take your word for it, but just because he sends one player off it doesn't mean he is the worst ref we could have.

He is generally more consistent than the other refs in the game, as has been mentioned he is generally not one of those refs who tries to even things up late in the game so it looks like they have been consistent, most of the calls he makes appear to be correct on the replays although he doesn't get it right every time, for me he is the best ref in the game at the moment and the most consistent when it comes to controlling both sides
