Agreed. The refs we have are pretty great, and I always appreciate them coming out to officiate. They're not paid a whole lot, but as you say, without them we go home.

I can't imagine what it's like to play a game reffed by someone holding onto the boards to stay upright though haha

Also, I should say that it's fine to ask about a penalty call, but it's just not worth it on an offside call. Once the offside call's made, there's nothing the refs can do (which is what I found so ridiculous about the other team's complaint).
