Good, so you are at the same level as the zamboni driver and the lady selling hot chocolate. Know your role.

I wish every ref went into games thinking, "How can I make this the best game for these players?". Skating over to the bench and telling a player to stop clearing the puck is pathetic, and thats what gives refs a bad rep. If this ref goes over and says, "Hey, I'm getting old, give me an extra second next time," and laughs it off, the entire atmosphere of the game would be different, and I highly doubt he's going to be 'targeted' (as the scenario seemed to imply) by that player/eam.
