There would be few umpires in the history of Tasmanian football who can boast as many matches officiated as Peter Floyd. Beginning his career in 1962 as a field umpire he officiated in 92 senior TFL matches before switching his focus to goal umpiring in the late 1960’s. It was in this capacity that he would truly make his mark on the umpiring landscape, officiating in eight TFL senior Grand Finals, the last of which was the infamous 1986 bloodbath between Glenorchy and Sandy Bay, which resulted in 14 players being reported. He retired from umpiring in 1986 after standing in a phenomenal 711 matches, and after retirement held the role as State Goal Umpires coach for many years, while also serving on the State umpires committee. He was inducted into the Tasmanian Football Umpires Hall of Fame in 2008.
