I played long enough in actual full contact leagues to not really be bothered by most of the fairly minor physical play in non contact beer league hockey. A bit of pushing, bumping, stick lifting, pinning to the boards, etc. is just part of hockey, even non contact hockey, once you get stronger on your skates it'll effect you way less. As for the reffing, as everyone else stated you can't expect it to be good in beer league, especially a beginners league.

If an individual player on a team is being truly dirty or just a serious *****, though, I'll definitely give it back. Not slashing or starting a fight or anything over the top like that, but just playing them more physical than normal, light body checks that will regardless put most of these players on their butts. I'm normally not even mad, but just feel that knocking these guys around a bit is necessary to put them in their place.
