Parents who yell at youth hockey refs are losers. No way around it. LOSERS.
To:8:28 AM poster: please learn how to read you moron. The poster did not say all the refs played pro..... he said most played high school, some juniors, some college, even some played semi pro. If you are going to make a stupid comment about a post, have somebody read the post for you. A big part of the problem is that the people commenting do not comprehend the rules.... and quite often the game either. Please silence your ignorance.
BS - they get paid enough. If they can't take some heat occasionally, then quit, or don't do it - go work at the grocery store.
Couple of examples - you can't have some 15 year old kid as a ref in a a game where to players start throwing haymakers at each other and the ref is so small he can't even get control of the situation - that's terrible.
Also, when you are missing the most BASIC calls such as icing and off-sides that leads to either a goal or just a bad play - you need to re think being a ref - period.
It is a job - and you have to do your job right - if you can't do it right, or feel as though you really don't have to - then go find something else to do.
No "my kid" doesn't come into play with haymakers - but nice projection ass hat. I stand by what I said, either do the job right or don't do it.
Most refs are like bad cops. Went into profession because they were tools and now want to abuse their power.
Obviously you wanted to be a cop but your fat ass could not make it by the fitness test. Sorry your fat ass got cut from being a cop.
