At least you had multiple refs. Three games this weekend, 1 ref per game. Fourth game, no ref.
Sabotaged??!! HA HA HA HA. Are you for real?!
Aside from awarding numerous penalties in the final minute, no amount of calls could sabotage little Johnny's team. A judgement call (tripping, hooking, etc) in the final 2 min could MAYBE prevent you from a comeback or breaking a tie, but it won't force a loss if you aren't already losing. If you can't secure the win before that then maybe question how they played, or better yet...get a grip. It's 10 yr old KID's hockey!!!
Hate to break this to you, but U10 is not the pros and no ref (no matter how bad they are) can throw a mite/squirt game. I usually ref 3-4 games per weekend (get asked to do way more). This weekend had close to 80 EHF games WITHOUT refs assigned. Refs are handling more games solo and even coaches are now being asked to ref games if there isn't coverage. Do you wonder why we have a ref shortage and losing even more each week? Parents (and some coaches) like you!
Think you can do better? Lace up and get on the ice!! (https://www.usahockey.com/officiatingprogramregistration)
Or, how about give Johnny a juice box and find another outlet for your frustration. We will all be much happier.
P.S. LMK what team your kid's on so I can be sure to decline those games.
It’s possible for refs to be incompetent thin skinned knobs while this guy also is a inbred moron, FYI.
