Please let Dave Zinkham know how the players feel!!!!!!!!!! Nothing will change unless you the players tell the league whats going on. I apologize to Rhino his team, those penalties should have never been assesed. If anyone has any questions please let me know how I can help. I will give out league numbers or info via pm.
One of the first things I learned as a referee in paintball is always to have your other refs' backs. I can't believe you (being a traveling ref rather than a local ref) would say something like this about the people you worked 3 days with. All of the refs I have ever worked with I have become really good friends with and I will always support their calls, especially with players. We do constructive criticism to better that ref, but never not support his call.
