All I can say is when it's a game for seven year olds, I can sorta see a parent getting pissed about their son being put in the penalty box. Just cuz it's a game of 7 year olds and u tend to just be there do noone gets hurt and not to put them in the box...
#35 That's the reason why I was "highly encouraged" To Graduate High School, get a Double Diploma in I.T from technical college and currently study at University. So I can understand what you are saying. My parents never graduated from High School and had to go to night school so that's why they encouraged me go do what they couldn't do. On topic though I guess the parents were over protective of their children and thought they couldn't do anything against the rules lol
I remember reffing at a juvenile wrestling tournament and it was the final match. You're usually supposed to get down on your stomach to check if it's a pin, but it was obvious cause the kid wasn't moving so I called it. After the match all the people supporting the kid who lost kept saying I was a failure at life and I'm lucky that my coach is here or they'd beat the shit out of me. Needless to say I've never reffereed again lol. I feel your pain OP.
48, Yeah who wants their kids to learn about fair play, ensure safety and generally learn how to play a game properly? Its much better to just be a badly dressed on field security guard, its the best way for kids to learn. 50, SUV's ARE more dangerous because of the design of the car. Whether the individual is a bad driver or not, there is a lack of visibility and functional impairment that comes with driving those things.
sigh!... Unfortunately, at hockey and soccer matches, parents have beaten other parents to death. At least football games (that I attend) have two bleachers, one set for each teams parents. Unfortunately, there's no way to control what happens after the game. The best a ref can do is get a real close parking spot an leave quickly and quietly.
That's what you get for putting little boys in boxes. Did you tell him he'd been very naughty?
If you were in a place where they took hockey really seriously, you would have been given references to a proctologist and an exorcist, too. Cheating refs are not only blind, but they are also assholes whose souls are possessed by Satan.
