Do you not see that:-
  • the actual result does not make bad arbiting any better
  • players other than an opponent can be affected by an active mobile phone
  • in non-ECF/CS etc arbiter run events parents have no guarantee that those persons are CRB cleared. There were many young players taking part.
  • incidents like these would likely reduce if arbiters stuck to the rules
Alex H has beaten me to it in terms of a response.

I wasn't commenting about the incident. I was commenting about the scope for ECF action in response to it.

Since the point has been raised, I would add that I happen to know that the organiser in question does have CRB clearance.
