You're mis-understanding what I am saying, David, or I'm mis-understanding what you are saying. I'm agreeing that it should be the match ref's decision. My suggestion is that the groundsman conveys information to the match ref - whether that includes pictures or not - and then it is the match referee's decision whether to (1) call off based upon information given or (2) decide whether he/she needs to personally inspect pitch. I can easily imagine a scenario where a pitch is partially underwater at, say, 3 hours in advance of kick-off and it is totally obvious that a game cannot be played - why does the ref need to be there personally to make a decision - no need at all, in my opinion.
