Yeah...to become an NHL referee it's not the easiest task in the world.

Go ref some games for the kids playing around you. See how well you like that. $80/game and getting the piss beat out of you by some old dude for missing a call.

These guys are great at what they do, and of course, they're paid for their experience reffing the pro game.
They probably get a great benefits package too!

It's not that much considering the responsibility they have and the type of traveling they have to do. Plus the danger factor.

There was a range, beginning at 110,000, and I didn't say it wasn't enough. The OP sort of implied it was significantly more than adequate and I think it's fair.

Talk to Bill Mcreary after his puck in the face.

On a second note, I can not wait until everyone has a google in their brain.. being able to access any and every question within seconds.. God phones are close but not good enough!

Refs have a tough and rough job though man.. and then when they miss a call or a call like the Gretzky high stick incident they get to hear about it and be booed and crapped on during every game in that teams building forever. And then when they retire and are seen on the street they better not go into that city! lol

Try closer to $20/game while being berated by Novice house league parents whose kids are going to "the show" and you're good... lol

You definitely need to love the game to do the job.

Im pretty sure they have a pretty decent expense allowance, on top of their free flights and hotel rooms.

It would be a strange lifestyle though. On the road all the time, away from family. It's like being a pilot for 7-8 months of the year

Wow - in Spain, even at the highest level; soccer referees make an average national salary, around 1200 euros a month. It's pretty much a second job really. When introducing the referees before a game they say what they primarily do for a living, whether it be a piano teacher or whathaveyou. It's a debate whether it should be an independent profession.

Mind you there aren't as many games to arbitrate, and travel across Spain is much less extensive, being just a little larger overall than the entire state of California.

You definitely need to love the game to do the job.
It isn't just the parents, to get the the NHL level requires years of experience at several different levels.

On top of all that if you can deal with NHL fans(like the kind that come from Philly)players, media, management that's another bonus.

After you take all that into consideration the league office in Toronto rates the job every linesman and referee does every game, and if they think you're not doing a good job, you won't last.

Reffing anything(especially Hockey, at a pro-level) would be incredibly difficult and stressful. Sure it might only require a few hours of actual work during the week, but I am sure they have to study and keep up with several different league seminars and stuff on the side.

And, on top of that, like NHLers you'd be living out of a different hotel on almost a daily basis, which means you'd get very little family life, and probably very little personal life.

Money, fame and glamour all come with a cost.
