I agree with Van, some coaches and parents are just plain dumb. I was refing some novice a few weeks ago. The score is 6-2 for the home team, and the visiting team is attacking some kid takes the rebound and goes for the wrap around by going all the way around the net to the other side. The goalie on his knees and beaten throws his sticks towards the player before he starts wrapping around, he hits the puck. It is a pretty harmless move made by a novice kid. Everytone
finds it funny and laughs, everyone knows your not suppose to do that and that it deserves a penalty. Anyways, I give the penalty shot, then as I'm making my sign the crowd boos me (nothing has happened previously in the game AT ALL), anyways, the coach climbs up on the board yelling stuff that will be blacked out on this website. I calmly ask him to climb down and I explain him the whole thing. He said as a first excuse that the goalkeeper couldn't have thrown his sticks but he just dropped it, HES ONLY A NOVICE he says. Then he's blaming me for giving a penalty shot. THE KIDS ARE ONLY NOVICE he says, he won't do it anymore as he grows. Is there a better time to learn I answer then when your 10 years old?
Anyways, the crowd was going nuts and so did the coach. Totally unexplainable for a single call (good or bad) when it's about 10 years old kids. And also, there is 3-4 minutes left in the game and your winning by 4 calm down. Would it have been Midget I would have kick him out as he wqas yelling louldly and didn't seem to stop, but I didn't want to do that for novice.
