The ref said if you stand by the puck and don't move it he can call delay of game.

That is absurd. I'm not much into roller hockey but I've played and reffed ice hockey at decent levels. I've only called/seen delay of game called due to either causing a stoppage or prolonging one without reason. Similar to that 1-3-1 Flyers/Lightning debacle, no reason the other team couldn't play the puck there. Bobby Orr used to do it to call penalties and never got called.

What I do hate is when a team is ahead and there's still a guy cherry picking. That's just trashy. It's one thing to play hard and get up on a team; it's another to be an a-hole out there and TRY to run up the score. In those cases that's when I, as a goalie, start looking to take out feet on breakaways.
