NY Rockland County league in need of reffs

If you're a ref in the area or anywhere in NYC, the drive isnt far, our games are once a week, two games are played a night in a small 4 team league. This is outdoor roller hockey and the games are running time 3 20 minute periods. You should be paid nicely and it really does not last long.

The league is easy to reff, but some people forget that it is a house league.

Some younger kids started out reffing the league but it was dangerous because if anything happened, they wouldnt be able to stop it. We've had a bigger man reff the games now, just started tonight. Problem is he did it alone and that was not going to work. My game was fine, but the other 2 teams in the league are a little troublesome.

Tonight a brawl started when a kid was punched in the back of the head, and retaliated with a two handed tomahawk to the skull of the other player...needless to say, it went downhill from there and the game was called. Someone called the cops and FIVE cop cars showed up.

The kid who did the chop is out, but to keep the league running we really need reffs.

Please shoot me an email @ anothertruth136@gmail.com for more information.

its not as bad as i may have made it sound. For the most part these are all people who know eachother and just want some friendly competition. And again the games are short. The problem came in with one kid, who can't play anymore. I haven't heard of anyone else causing problems, but we can't take any more chances. make more sense?

Was the kid that was suspended on the Pink team or the Black and Yellow team?

My friend is on the black team... he said it got real ugly.

I was there for the end of the blue teams' game and the beginning of Black/Yellow vs. Pink... I missed it getting out of hand.

Are you on the blue team or something?
