I as a Ref enforce the rules as intended, neither name,team, or division changes how I Ref. The best way to show this was a player was doing a "dead man walk" and turned and shot a player and stated to me--" I never called myself out, I was doing a "dead man walk" and that is okay" I looked at the player and threw the penalty flag, that in turned changed the game to the other team getting the pull and hang. I feel all the Refs on the main field were doing a great job all weekend, and even the players win or lose told us thanks for the great job you all did.
Well said, we were the team that got the thread started and think the ref's did a great job all event long, we hold nothing against them.........
