i caught six balls behind the ear and neck (from about 10 feet)as i turned away from a guy with a ramping board in his dm6 as i tried to get a tagged rental player out of his way. I dont usually lose my cool but he never came back to play our feild again (i wonder why??????)
i will give up my marker only after you pry my cold rigid fingers from the trigger

My first and only time I reffed (so far)... Id say my worst injury was when I got wet. Seriously, I got soaked... I felt like the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz! (or is it the East?) lol.

^^^Its the witch of the east lol. Dont know how I remember that...great, now I am going to be wondering all night how I remember that, not from the movie...HA just got it, from The Great Movie Ride in WDW! But I have yet to have any injuries reffing besides geting shot, but it was so far it felt like a bug on my arm. ;)

Heh, I think we all get shot up plenty. I've sorta become used to it. Not as in "Har Har I can be shot 5000 times and not feel it!" but more of..."Oh, I was hit again!" and just carrying on like normal. Anybody else find this?

Also, I popped my bad knee out while reffing recently. That hurt somewhat...

Just somthing else to throw out there; not to hijack your thread Wiggy; if you were mildy hurt would you want the game to stop for you or keep on going. This is assuming there is at least 1 other ref there to watch and its not a major tourney.


Gooooooooooooooood question................... :)

If I get mildy hurt sure, I'll stay in. But, in the instance where I'm bleeding uncontrolably, like last time, I'm handing the horn to the next Ref and casually leaving the field.

lol I spraind(SP) my ankle off the break during an elimination game, back when I still played paintball, lol and ended up tagging EVERYONE on the other team, thus winning the game singlehandedly.......... that was sweet...........

And yes, I've been shot in the hand plenty, it's alot of fun when the player who shot you fired 3 shots into your hand fron 17 feet away............. :)
Oh well........


God Bless,
Doc

I was just curious i ref alot and get hit quite a bit doing so has anyone else ever woken up at night from dodging paintballs in there sleep? i know soldiers who talk about post tramatic stress disorder when they came back from iraq and i know paintball aint even close to what they went through but i wonder if there could be any lasting effects from reffing to much??

yeah i know we play paintball for fun and i served so i know its not the same i just using that cause i couldnt think of anything else to reference it to and i do dream about paint ball but some times after a hard day reffing i find myself catching or think i see somethin :P g moving out of the corner of my eyes. its sorta weird but goes away after about 2 hrs being off the feild must be some sorta heightened state of awareness brought on by the adrenaline dump we get from being on the feild. Oh well

I've bashed my head on my wall more thn a few times trying to duck for cover while sleeping. Especially when I'm just starting to sleep, I'll hear a marker fire and see a paintball flying my way and BAM! I'm on the floor holding my head next to my bed.
