So I was asked to pretend to be a referee today. Apparently the $180 per kid does not cover league ref's and the home team is responsible for bringing one to the game. I don't want to do it again. Some parents are real pains in the ass. Ferfuxsake, the kids are 7, I'm letting them play unless there is a blatant foul or something that leads to a breakaway. Idjits. Maybe I should have tossed one off the field. "You, go watch from the car!"

I was more concerned with not running through one of the kids than hearing what the peanut gallery was complaining about. Some of those kids are small and I'm, well, I'm not small. It was funny that some of the bitching was coming from my son's sideline, though.

Yep, I am with you. When I am responsible for defense, my total focus is on those kids only...it is amazing all that goes on that you miss. People will say things, and I have to check with someone else when I was in that zone. Sorry, wasn't paying attention to that.

Our refs are 12 year old kids who play in the local elite league. One of the parents from the other team actually started heckling the 12 year old ref on Friday night. He quieted down,luckily for him. He was about to receive a stern talking-to.

In our league, the two teams playing have to split the cost for the Refs and pay them at game time. Most of the time they're pretty good. But some of them seem to think they're ref'ing in the World Cup.

This past Saturday we had a Ref that was absolutely terrible. He was blowing calls all over the place...for both teams I might add. My daughter was in goal in the first half. The Ref missed a blatant off sides call and the other team scored. At half time I get all the girls together and talk about what's going on. I then realized my daughter was not among the team and I looked back at the field and there she was, talking a bit loudly to the Ref. I had to pull her away before she got a red card. After the game, I had a parent of one of my players confront the ref about his terrible calls. That's a big no no and we will get fined since I'm responsible for the action(s) of the parents. Luckily, I was able to apologize to the Ref and he let it go. It seems I'm not only a coach but a Ref as well.

until you have dealt with youth hockey, you can't complain. Parents get really pissy when they drove in the car for 3 hours to get to some shit hole ice rink at 7am.

Berlin or Conway. Growing up and playing in Baltimore was far worse. Here in NH I have like 8 rinks within 20 minutes of me. In Baltimore it was one rink with in an hour. You would have to drive to PA to fucking play at 5am.

We moved from one town to another because of the schools and youth sports.

I really enjoyed watching my boys play baseball and basketball. The difference in coaches was very apparent, some were clueless activity directors, some wanted to teach skills and others just wanted to win but didn't know how.

Regardless my boys had a great time and so did I. I made a vow to never be the obnoxious parent which with few exceptions I was able to do. My gig was to bring a camera and at least one game a season I would take a ton of photos of each kid plus the coaches coaching. It's amazing how far a sumgmug print in a walmart frame will go to making a coach feel appreciated. I also liked running the scoreboard for the baseball games, we'd be in a little shelter right behind home plate.

Basketball not so much, one time I got reamed by a coach because I wasn't tracking fouls properly and he was sure the other team's star fouled out.
