I ended up giving the goaltender 2 for Unsportsmanlike Conduct and a 10 Minute Misconduct because he still wouldn't shutup...the defenceman wouldn't shutup, so I gave him a dime (ref slang for a 10 Minute Misconduct)... Then as I was reporting the penalties, their coach was standing at their gate yelling at me with vulgar language loud enough for people in the stands to hear, so I went straight to a Game Misconduct for him.

At the end of the game, the goaltender called me a f'ing idiot as he shook my hand. That earned him another dime, which was his second of the game, which meant an automatic Game Misconduct. Being after the game, that got him a one-game suspension. (All Game Misconducts in the last 10:00 of the game earn an automatic one game in Canada.)

It really makes you wonder what some coaches are teaching their players in terms of self-control when a goaltender earns himself a suspension because his defenceman threw a player into him....Then again, this IS midget house.
and not only midget house, but midget house in

once, WAY back in the day I was reffing a pee-wee tourny, and I had a parent that was constantly yelling at me. Started right at the start of the game when I gave her son a penalty. Well, she wouldn't shut up, so knowing the coach I asked him to get her to calm down between periods. I saw him try, and was w/in ear shot of what he said. I thanked him, and he said I wouldn't thing I know, as soon as I'm getting on the ice again I'm getting yelled at again by said parent.

I had her removed from the building, and she wasn't allowed back in for the rest of the tourny...oh man was she pissed! lol
