It all comes down to taking a step back and realizing it's beer league.
its a lot easier for a ref to manage/control a game than it is to get 25+ people to understand its just a
we had an incident over a month ago where a goon on the opposing team threw a flying elbow at our captain. not only did the ref miss the call, he didnt give both players matching minors to help them cool off after they were trying to fight each other. the very next shift, my captain boarded the guy who elbowed him and was suspended for 30 days. it all could have been easily avoided if a) the ref made the right call off the bat b) realized he missed the call, and given both players matching minors to diffuse the situation
