That Ref is Somebody's Kid

Or somebody's dad. A person who cares about hockey and the players. A person doing a tough job as best they can.

The referee is only human and mistakes will happen. Verbal abuse of the official is simply not acceptable. It spoils everyone's enjoyment of the game and sets a terrible example for the players - our kids.

Remember why we're here. It's for all the positive things team sports can teach our children. And just as important, it's for the fun of it.

If you have criticisms or concerns, please voice them through the proper channels.
