Re: Refs Blew it for Us

It’s possible for refs to be incompetent thin skinned knobs while this guy also is a inbred moron, FYI.

You are correct, they aren't mutually exclusive but in my experience for every "incompetent thin skinned knobs" officiating a U10 game there are 100 out of control parents & coaches. I find most of the truly incompetent officials are doing Bantam/Midgets and MIAA games. Although, since half the games at Bantam/Midget so far only have one official, I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt right now.

That is true...and I was a coach for MANY more years before I starting officiating. Something about the stripes makes a few of them power trip. Pro tip, be respectful to them and they will be respectful back (apart from that one thin skinned knob). That said, there are far fewer refs like that than dick parents or coaches. Sure, be more critical as you move up in age (Bantam/Midget) where you do need some level of competence to control a rowdy game, but at U10? get a grip. Don't be a dick like the OP.
