This sunday, I got teamed up with a different partner than usual when reffing...and to put it simply, he was about as useful as a used tampon. He spent half the time on his mobile phone, and the rest of it waiting for ME to fix the rental guns of guys near him when I'm trying to handle the other side of the field. His excuse: "I'm bored, I find paintball extremely boring"

Like, how the BOINK do you handle a game when the other ref is a complete POOP SHOOTER? It was a miracle nobody got hurt!

Any tips/advice/methods of inflicting pain, I'll appreciate.

Mention him to the head honcho, or at least someone who works there. Don't be rude about, and have others guys come with you to (honestly and truthfully) back up your claims.
You could also tell if doesn't like paintball, then to quit. Mention to him that if someone gets hurt on his watch, that's going to be a good bit o' legal trouble.
Personally, I would just tell him, "If don't like paintball, then get the @#$! out of here. If someone get's hurt, and we get sued, I'm going to mess you up."

There were several good plans. Also have some of the players if they noticed tell the manager about him. If you are the head ref for that group or field, tell him he can not have the cell phone on the field. If he does not want to be there get on the radio and tell the main people that you are sending him in and kick him off the field. I have had to do this and it is easyer to ref by yourself then to have someone who is in the way. How did this person get to be a ref??
Its simple I saw the hit,
Your out!!

I need a job with more vacation time

I've no idea how he became a ref, he was here before me. He's a good friend of the boss, and the assistant manager, and he's on better pay than me despite being lazy. The boss already knows he's a lazy FATHERLESS MAN, but hasn't fired him yet, and technically he's my superior so I cant send him back in. I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place, as actually talking to him about it only resulted in "I dont care, I'm BOINKing bored!" followed by a rant about his lack of sex for three weeks...

Take it up with the boss. Point out to him how that refs poor work ethic and lack of concern for the game will result in loss of business and loss of other staff. Talk to the players ans see what complaints they have about this ref and bring them to your boss as well.

In the long run it's going to cost your boss more money to keep him than to fire him.

i dont know id probably let your boss know you dont wanna ref with him again. this weekend i was reffing a game two brothers who set up the air ball feild and sometimes ref got into a fist fight while playing against each other in a rec game. i threw them out of the game (I would have banned them from the feild if it were up to me0 im considering telling the feild owner i may quit because of them. i dont know if i wanna be a part of a feild where thats allowed to go on.

I normally am the only ref. Its a good thing I'm in shape. @_@

Oh, you mean the other guy standing on the field with a ref shield, the one that does nothing? I wasnt aware that was reffing.

Just do your best and let whoever is in charge of the field or your team know.

All because I went above the managers head and spoke to the regional director.
