I wasn't sure what to call this episode, let alone if I should post it, but hell with it, I ceased to care some time ago and it's a problem I still see happen today.

I started watching the video thinking it was going to be about a tourney you went to where a kid was reffing...

It seems pretty low to me to be dragging stuff from 10 years ago into ruining your reputation...there are a lot of things that I did ten years ago that I'm not proud of, but those things aren't who I am now...so even if you flew off the handle, doesn't mean you are a jerk now...

Being a former ref (not special here, must of us ref at one point or other.) that is terribly unproffesional of that kid. At our field, i would not have a job if any of my managers heard that i argued with a customer.

Yea, I mean...I started reffing when I was 15...but while there were times when I made mistakes on calls as far as people being out...you aren't suppose to argue with the customer like that. I will say, I'll yell all day if people are being unsafe, but you shouldn't be arguing like that..I would have been let go.

LOL at the indoor field I stand on the middle of the concrete tower and get to see the whole field

I get shot at least once a game but I'v had players complement me on moving around the field and calling people out.

Immature during the game...assault after the game...besides, shooting him would have completely aggravated the situation...and just made Tyger look like an idiot.

If he had done that, then those critics would have something to complain about.

The player can be thrown out if it's pretty clear what happened.

And if it's after the heated discussion, well, that just makes it even more obvious. Plus the player would be firing after eliminated, which is in violation of the rules even if it wasn't at a ref being shot at.

A lot of fields make it clear during safety briefing that if they are getting shot intentionally by a player they will escort you to the entrance of the field...refs can most of the time tell the difference between a stray ball or a player not recognizing them as a ref and the intentional shot out of anger.
