Talk to the referees after whistles, sometimes they aren't in the game at an emotional level, and aren't tuned into that kind of stuff, but if you force them to be aware of those things, they'll pay a little more attention. Can't guarantee it, but it's better than getting suspended for your playoff game because you picked a fight with some ahole. Also, find the league organizer and complain, if the referee isn't enforcing blatant rules like no checking, they should be fired.
This ref just did not care, and clearly wanted to get home asap as we were the late game. I am hopeful this ref does not work again in a game i play in.
