One time I had some sophomore from my school that couldn't stand taking orders from a freshman, and he comes up to me telling me how he can beat the hell out of me. I just say to him in a sarcastic voice, "Fine, go ahead. Have fun trying to beat up the Lexington County Sheriff's Department after you get done with me. It would make my day because you know what I would do? Heal, sue, pay my medical bills, and make a few extra grand to buy me some new stuff, and then laugh as you get hauled off to DJJ." He was just like yea, you're scared. So I told him to go turn in his stuff, and go up top and speak to the manager. I called him and told him what happened. However this guy gets in my face and swings at my head, but I easily dodged it. Now Im thinking to myself, "Oh goody, now I get to defend myself!" All in all, he swung at me, I dodged it by ducking, and came back up and put my a square punch right into his stomach. I hit him so hard he stumbled backwards, fell, and I knocked the wind out of him. Then he runs around for like 20 seconds speechless trying to catch his breath, and in the mean time I call the police, they get here, asked me what happened, I told them, they asked me if I wanted to press charges, and I said no. I told them they might want to ask him though and the cops kind of chuckled because a 5'2'' 90 lbs kid beat up a 6'1'' 200 lbs sophomore...Also my boss paid me for the 2 hour ordeal while I wasn't working/talking to the police, and gave me an extra 8 hours of pay bonus!

i've seen younger refs with pistols, and if they still play while they are told to call out they get shot out. there was a thread about rfs with pistols, i'll look for it

I'm 19 years old and I have officiated for about 2 years now. Lately the older players have been very negative towards my calls and have complained about the "kid ref." I know the field owner personally and he knows that I call everything honest and has no problem with it. The problem is that I do not know what to do in a situation where the adult will not listen to me. Please give me some advise.


We had this problem yesterday, except it wasnt jus me they wasnt listening to. they wasnt leastening to most the refs. AND was like delibretly shooting at us, and they used the exuse

"in the safety briefing, he said ref's dont mind being shot or we wouldnt do the job." so i did poiny out to him that was if we was shot accidently not on purpose. anyways, we sorted the problem, we went up to them de-cocked there guns, and the idiots couldnt figure out how to cock it, then they ended up getting lit up.

Now i know alot of people will say that was bad reffing, but we had like 11 ref's on that day and i think they must have used all of us as target practice so most of us was to put it "politly" annoyed with em.

If someone gives you any trouble, get the older Refs involved. If that doesn't work, get the owner/manager in there, they'll back you up.

I haven't had this problem, I don't think I ever will actually, being 6'5 comes in handy now and again...........

The biggest thing is to maintain your composure. Always be respectful, yet firmly maintain your position of authority. Politely reminding someone that they have signed a waiver agreeing to the field rules, along with inviting them to discuss it with your supervisor (again politely - yet firmly) usually is enough for people to realize they are fighting a losing battle. Should the situation not diffuse, call other refs over (they should already be there to have your back - once a situation arises) or call the game. Yes - you heard me right - bring things to a screeching halt for everyone. Safety is key here. You cannot protect the rest of the games players while you are distracted by dealing with one knucklehead that doesn't get it. The embarassment of ruining other people's game tends to keep one in line.....along with the peer pressure from other players should do the trick.

Composure is the key though - polite but firm.

im only 18 myself and i would like to become a ref and in a situation like that i would either shot them and put them out or Just call them out untill they understand that you are the Ref and you know best. Personally i hate rules but i would listen to people younger than me when it comes to this sport, anything else i would just laugh and call them and idiot or something.

i would have wanted to do the same thing, but then he probably would have lit u up from like one or two feet away
not fun

This is what our field's gun techy type guy told me recently: Never shoot a player, even if they're being total CORNHOLIOS and ignoring you. It brings you down from the respectable ref position to the shootable player position, and you can garuntee they will shoot you back. And apparantly, you cant really hurt each other that way anyway. His solution - Take their gun off them (Even if its their own personal marker) and escort them to the manager. If they get violent, club them with aforementioned marker.

Sounds a bit childish in some respect, but the way he said it makes me figure he might just have done it once or twice.

Myself I do not care how old or young the refs are. They are the ref and their word is law on the field. Last time I played it was at a new field in my area. All the refs their looked like they could still be in high school. Myself I graduated in 2000, but when the ref, who was obviously younger than me, said I was eliminated I walked off the field and to the staging area. After one of the games I forgot to pull on my barrel sock as I was walking off the field. The ref politely reminded me to put it on.

Before the first game you could always tell the players how long you have been playing and how long you have been a ref. Basically if you show confidence in your knowledge of the sport and your position as ref the players should respect you.
