When the refs call everything, there tends to be less rough stuff.
Completely agree - my main beef was with the lack of safety. If more small/medium stuff was called, there would be less escalation and less major incidents would occur.

I know that even good refs make mistakes (of course) but also know how to keep things from escalating. The psychopath ones seem to enjoy the escalation.

The two or three guys on every team that kill the enjoyment for the refs and everyone involved. Yes, your team has them, every team does.

Good example yesterday. Men's game, a little chippy, five minors called in the first 10 minutes. Next play, large player does hard rub out of player in the corner, I call it. On the way to the box, "For christ sake, how many penalties have you guys called, put the ****ing whistles away."

Each day like that brings one day closer to when I say, screw it, not worth it, too many idiots.

What happens when the good refs leave? Gong shows.

(Just a little from the other side. )
Sounds like you are good ref.. I'd rather see more small calls to prevent things from flaring up. Keep the a-holes in the box and I hope they don't cause another good ref to quit.

I wish these guys would be just straight up banned from the league. There is no place for that in non-contact adult rec. I sometimes wonder why other teams don't kick these guys off their team. We all have work in the morning - well maybe not that guy .
