The tourney players who don't turn it down during recball, 10X more when it is newbies.

When I ref with newbies playing against those guys, I might just call a few unobvious hits clean, and I might accidentally let slip where the other team is... and I do cheer when the newbies win.

My number one most annoying thing is when a new player asks for a paint check on their mask. I come over to check it and he or she points to a giant splat of paint right in the middle of their lens and asks if it broke...

That's just retarded! Lol.
I hate it most when people take their mask off durning games after you warned them twice. I try to give them some slack but come on. Your going to get kicked off for a while if you keep doing it.

I remember I was refring once, with a kids party. And of course there's always that one kid who has to show off. Well anyways, he was using an ego his mom bought him, and he was bored I guess cause the game was like dead, so he aims at me and shoot me in the stomach, with a gun un chronod. I was parrallel to him, so it wasn't an accident.

Then I yelled at him, "YO BUDDY WHAT THE **** IS YOUR PROBLEM?" He was scared ****less! He apologized at least 20 times.
(keep in mind I'm 5' 11" 230 pounds)





And im sure I speak for every reff on this one:
People who just stand there with there hand up while there out, or just walk through a lane of paint, and ***** when they get hit!

When rec ball players go try hard against the new players. Also when people don't tip, I essentially get paid nothing so tips are very nice.

That's really no way to act as a ref. It's your job to get shot. Even if it's intentional you should never swear at a player, talk to them and warn them calmly and professionally.

Something that really bugs me is when groups of friends renting want to stay together and then complain that the teams are unfair. So I divide renters and regulars evenly between the teams, and then they complain that they're not with their friends! It's one or the other people.

When people make eye contact with me, I'm wearing bright orange, look at me for a few seconds and shoot me 3 times (it has happened)

People lifting their masks

Telling people 20,000 times to put their mask down or put their barrel plug on then are like "what did you say?"

Recball

People not following basic firearm saftey

People staring at me for 3 seconds and then shooting me

People pointing their guns at me for 2-3 seconds when I go check them. I can understand pointing at me when I first show up but not for an extended period of time

People to put their barrel bags on and then start waving it around when you tell them to put it on

I had a kid come out of the staging area with his barrel bag off so I grabbed the barrel of his gun and pointed it at the ground so as not to have it fire and hit someone. He shot the gun but luckily it dry fired. I had someone else do the same thing and I just covered the barrel with my hand. I would rather get shot up close than have someone lose an eye.

people ramping on tiny tim

people not knowing how to crono their guns

people having orange designs or logos on their person or their gear when the field uses orange paint (Orange camo rotor) Gets me every time

Speedball

People whining at you from the sidelines

People asking for a check on a player that continue to shoot while you are checking said player

People shooting me in the head when I am ten feet out of bounds

Right, We do it because we love the sport and look forward to building it by doing the best job we can and provide the experience for all players. Being an official is a thankless job most the time or at least can feel that way, but know it is a vital part to sports. If you do it for anything less than a passion for the sport than you should consider another career/hobby.

agreed!
a logical person would know what theyre getting in to when signing up to be a ref. I hate it when people complain about the new players they need someone helpful.

I feel like reffing just to watch over those wipers and really ruin the game for the cheaters. Just give me one game and I'll get these people to quit the sport. The amount of BS you see on larger games is just nasty. Some people need a ref's boot deep up their cleaned anus.

Bosnians and Mexicans no offense to either race but they are always the worst with the rules at our field.
