As a beer leaguer, I try to be as respectful as possible towards the refs. Largely because they are doing it because they love it and they don't get paid much. When we play our games at 11PM they have to be there too. Without them there is no competative game.
Sure sometimes they get the call wrong, but over time, as many calls that go wrong against you are equivalent to the amount of calls that are in your favor. The biggest ref whiners tend to be those who push the envelope on the rules.
All that being said, if the game meant more like a professional game or a junior game, then I probably wouldn't be as dismissive of ref mistakes.
