worst reffing at any sport ive ever seen EVER.
players were hit 4 times before refs called them out
penalties for ghost hits
players getting pulled for not even being hit
4 refs saying different things

it was horrendous

I couldn't agree more with you guys. I saw some reffs just standing around and not following the game, also I saw some really, really bad calls that I have never seen before.
The reffing was not CONSISTANT. Early in the morning reffing was decent, then all of a sudden the reffs started calling penalties that were very weird.
This kind of performance by the reffs, turns players away from the sport and therefore FEWER teams play tournaments.
No wonder EPL south died!!! They had to compete against better leagues in the South that I do not need to mention.
REFFING is the most IMPORTANT thing in a tournament and the PLAYERS are the customers footing the bill.
One thing is getting beat by a superior team, another thing is getting beat by really bad calls by the reffs. I saw plenty of that yesterday.
Another thing, the tournament should have been POSTPONED because of the weather. The field was in HORRIBLE condition, completely covered in a lot of snow and making the players play there (just because WE like the sport) is definitely NOT RIGHT. Someone could have gotten hurt.
How does this league show they really care about the players?

KM is just mad they lost every point all day.

Some poor calls were made yes, but that happens at literally ANY event you will play at so no sense in knocking JUST the EPL for poor reffing.

Yesterday was a very well ran event especially with the way the conditions were this past weekend, I was very impressed. Don't listen to the ignorance of the haters.

when a snake player is hit 4 times directly in front of the ultimate ref in a game my team wasnt playing. is bad period
the head ref saw it and let the player play on

im more mad about the game we werent involved in and how bad the reffing was overall
there was more then a few times where there was 2 or 3 refs around and they all said something different or when a ref was asked to show the player where he was hit and simply said i dont know and brushed it off

I did see that guy in the snake getting hit in front of the ultimate reff as well. As Long Shot stated, the bad calls were made on several teams. It is just not right, it is understandable when there are a couple of bad calls, but when a lot of bad calls are made, then that is just terrible.
I think this is not hating, this is how can you make things better.

agreed and our team is not one to complain and try to get our way all we want is a fair fight and due to a bad reff staff it was not given

i dont know how the reffing was but i normally ref with all these guys and if there were mistakes they will happen also as far as ghost hits if a player is hit and it comes off because of a slide (remember this was played in snow) it is still a hit. as far as the weather goes suck it up the NJO was played in a thunder storm. you cant just postpone an event when you have teams pay for rooms buy paint ahead of time paid for rental of the field reffs getting room and so on.

i mean ghost hits with no sliding involved
a player was called out for being hit on the hopper and didnt move and the ref couldnt show the player the hit

sorry to sound like im accusing them of anything
but it was very poorly reffed

where to start? I wasnt supposed to ref. BUT they were short, so i pretty much volunteered, i have reffed the PSP,NPPL,GPL,NXL, just to name a few. I am not perfect, nor is any other ref, but i consider myself fair and unbiased. Do you know what makes a great ref staff? HONEST PLAYERS! plain and simple! I can also say I HAVE NEVER FELT SO DISRESPECTED BY ANY PLAYERS, as much as i did at this event!!! the nerve of some you! when I was coming up 20 yrs ago, a ref would have ***** slapped me if I talked back to him! make it easy on refs! DONT CHEAT! for you are the ones who are ruining "the game" good day children
