don't **** off the refs (i.e. yelling at them multiple times for what you think was a bad call for a penalty). if your team annoys them enough either will end up getting a penalty for unsportsmanlike or they may get back at your team in more indirect ways.
realize teams will play as chippy as what the refs allow and different refs have different standards.
don't get pissed off at some of your less skilled players not doing well as long as they are trying. do get pissed off at your so called better players when they constantly take cheap penalties or float most of the game.
as previous posters have already mentioned - don't run up the score too high on a team that is a lot weaker (could try switching some of your forwards and defence or just do more passing or if you have a 2nd goalie or player that occasionally plays goal put him in net for some of those games).
if you are in charge of a beer league team - get the money up front or you will be wasting time chasing some players for money all season. most players are good for getting fees right away but a sizable minority are not.
some girlfriends sometimes come to games - wives not so much.
