Dear Sir, I believe the title of the topic hits it right on the nail.
Are the umpires doing their job properly?
To answer that we must look at the mechanism in place to check this. Game evaluation, Match Inspectors, Technical Officers capable of making proper review of matches. Granted there may not be enough $$ to look at Match inspectors but the role of Umpires Manager (UM) come into play in these occasions.
The UM both independently and collectively with the Technical Officer must do joint evaluations with the Umpiring team for the match.
With that mechnism in place we can say ... "Hey Guys, we have dat in place and this is what we are doing! This is the system in place... we have X number of umpire they have done this many games this is their rating. Yeah there are some good and some bad. The only down side to this is people will use this as ammunition against the umpires. Who said it was a fair world!!
Frankly its a dog-eat-dog world out there.
The final piece of this area, is such practice in place and these evaluation forwarded to the Technical Committee that does the appointment in a case by case basis. Then you can justify and fight back against comments and unnecessary remarks.
Integrity & Courage
The very players who harass and protect and do all the things you said wont even dare do it in an international arena. Is it coz they think they can get away with it? Or we are too weak to take action? And if we do take action as an Umpire will they back us up?
We all watch foreign match Umpires makes a good decision, good advantage lauded and applauded at the same time he makes a bad call he is criticized. Whats the beauty in this is they have the courage and integrity to say they are Right or they were Wrong.
Time and time again we have seen heard Umpires being made scapegoats and at the receiving end of brickbats. They get whacked by both sides and have little or no room to hit back. They bound by the Code of Conduct that they and the teams sign and yet surprisingly the Teams are not taken to task should they breach it but every ready to use it against a match official.
I struggle to recall the last time i read in a by line or heard or seen in an interview "The Umpire had a good game." You will never hear these 5 words.
Lets look on the flip side, the player made and pass, a clumsy tackle, the keeper making a silly mistake you dun find the Teasm blaming them out right. We got to have the courage to call a spade a spade. Until that time its a dog-eat-doe out world there
Thank you Sir for allowing me to comment as I will be adding this to my blog as well.

Is about someone in denial and cannot find the right and wrong thing to do about someone. It is about a person whom is hurting someone, but this person still loves him/her. Hence, this person is in a state of confusion...........this is such an angry song, i love it!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After his success in hockey Oltmans moved over to the football. Until 2002 Oltmans was technical director of football NAC. Through an adventure in hockeyclub Little Switzerland2003 as coach of the National team of Pakistan during the Olympic Games Athens and had to end this feature 2004. In 2005 He returned as coach of the national male team. This position he held until the Summer 2008, Where the Netherlands was 4th. Oltmans began late
Personally, we dun have short term and long term objectives, we don't have a proper foundation... if anyone if expecting instant result I am truly sorry. Having a national coach is not only handling the national team but looking at the feeder system and and bottom to top review of the playing, managing and development infrastructure in the country.
If you are not prepared to do that or allowed to do that we.. no point isnt it.
