Disgusting behavior.

That said, it seems really unfair and heavyhanded to cancel the season for EVERY single team in the organization.

Reading the article, it's way worse than the title makes it sound, the one team hunted the refs down after the game, locked them in a room, and then semi-gang beat one of the refs. It was also sparked by a ref kicking a player out of the game because said player shot a puck at the ref.

Looked a bit deeper, quote from another article:
Quote:
Hockey officials in Kahnawake and two neighbouring municipalities all agreed to dissolve the team in question. Other Kahnawake teams will have home games moved off-site, the reserve's top hockey official said.

"This kind of attitude is unacceptable, not only in the Kahnawake Minor Hockey Association, but throughout our community," association president Peter Jacobs said, adding the assailants only represent a minority of players.

Jacobs also suggested security cameras might be installed in the local arena.

The regional head of referees, Olivier Lalonde, says what happened Sunday is just the latest in a series of Mohawk attacks on officials.

"For two years, I've seen fewer and fewer referees agreeing to go to Kahnawake because they fear for their safety," he said.

Last month, a player on the midget team was suspended for the remainder of the season after he assaulted a volunteer who had tried to intervene during a fight between Mohawk and non-native players.

Last year, the team finished first in its division but was barred from playoff action after players brawled and beat up a referee.
So it sounds like the other teams will still be playing hockey, just at a new rink, only the one team in question (The Kahnawake Mohawks) was truly dissolved. I'm guessing there have been many incidents at this rink in general if refs have been avoiding reffing there for some time.

Yeah, the original article was apparently a little unclear.

That sounds logical. i agree.

and if you click on the links in blue ... other articles describe other facts that happened with this same team in this same place ... like this same team being baren from playoffs the year before for attacking a referee and its officials.

in another article : " Other Kahnawake teams will have home games moved off-site, the reserve's top hockey official said"

Link of a much more complete and better written article here, the article that is being linked originally in this thread is definitely poor and incomplete.

(the other officials are a bit cowards between you and me )

It's on a reserve. They're sometimes pretty sketchy and troubled, no matter the province.

Kerry Fraser would have done a much better job if everyone beat him up after every bad call, right?

Bad calls happen and people deal with it. A ref sees things differently and sometimes they make the wrong call.

Some refs clearly favor one team to another and make bad calls against one team and let other calls go against the other team. Those are the ones who deserve whats coming to them

There is no justification for what happened, not even in your world.

If you click on the article links inside that Puck Daddy article, some of the comments on those news sites provide a little perspective about the big picture. Sounds like there is a problem much bigger than whether the hockey refs are any good... it's more about racism and poverty, and kids full of testosterone and short on good judgment.

It was a Pee-Wee house league game.
Even Refs have to get game experience.
