Players aren't the only ones who bend the rules. Sometimes, refs do it for whatever reason too.

Comments always welcome

Ugh that DOES suck :(

Reminds me of being the last guy on my team in a game, running pump...trying to basically nail guys and then move to a new position, fire, draw them in, hit them from the side...

Until a ref starts FOLLOWING ME AROUND to make sure I'm not going to wipe "when they find me".... naturally, eyes go towards a ref in a bright yellow jersey in a woodsball field. Eventually I just got cornered and had to rush out in a blaze of glory but I got them down to 2 -_-

As a player, I am definetly not a fan of when a ref starts telling me where people are located, or other people where I am located. I mean, it's really challenging to move up the field if a referee is telling the opposing team exactly where you are. However, if I am playing against a bunch of new players, and the ref wants to give them pointers, whether it is how to flank me, tree walk me, where I am to help out occasionally I am fine with that. When I am reffing a small group with a player that is really struggling I will help them, I'll tell them when to move to a new bunker, so that they don't run into a stream of paint. I generally avoid giving out specific locations of opposing players, but I will tell them to watch the left side in general.

What gets me is that the mentality is out there that refs can be an active part of the game. This comment on the youtube channel is from one of my regular trolls.

im a ref at my local park. work 3 days a week... if someone i dont know says or does something that pisses me off ya i give the other team an advantage by either giving them my buddies who i know will shoot him or telling the other team where they should go before the match starts and ya im guilty of even telling the other team the position of the guy. if you FRAG with us refs your in for it. idk if you did anything wrong you seem like a all around fun guy. keep up the good work.

Well gosh mister! I'm so sorry that someone offended you at your job. So by that theory, it's perfectly ok to spit in a hamburger if a customer annoys you by asking for no ketchup? How about leaning over and punching someone in the face because they're not happy at you because you messed up their first order?

Part of the job of being a ref is customer service, and stacking teams or cheating for a team is bad customer service. Apparently, that's a foreign concept these days. Either refs are so lazy they don't want to do the job, so timid they can't do the job, or hyper-aggressive and take the authority too far. Either way, it's not good customer service.

It's definetly a different story if you are doing it because you are ticked off rather than doing it because it's a bunch of new players with no clue, because at that time we will give them an additional extra player, or possibly have two different refs each give one side some type of planning help.

I work as a game ref, and I'll be MORE than happy to give advice to a team as to how to best play a game. I do so knowing full well that they really won't listen, and they'll all do their own thing anyway after 1 minute. I also know that I'm being paid to keep people entertained, and winning is part of that. But I'm not about to throw a game to meet that end, I would much rather they earned it. And they do, if they listen to advice.

I learned long ago that part of the job is "check your ego at the door", because people will tick you off. You just need to deal with that, and move on. Besides, one malicious ref can equal untold monetary damage down the road when you lose a lot of potential customers. "Oh, yeah, I read that review of the field, I'm not going there with my office party. The refs said that if you make them mad they'll make sure you lose, and that sucks. We're going to another place instead."

Well the most I do is suggest the move forward,especially we I know they are being
over run with a large force,like 1-10 odds.
