In relation to the other thread about dumbest parents, here list the dumbest thing you have ever seen a referee say or do. Me being a player as well as a ref, have heard quite a few, but I am probably forgetting a lot of them. Well here are some: -I was called offside when I was not, and would have had a good chance on net late in a tied game. I look around confused as to how I was offside, and the ref says to me, "You were offside when you got the ball." -During pre-game when checking us in, a ref tells us, "You may be suprised that I have to check your cleats to make sure they are legal." -One time, a ref did not check to make sure the nets were secure to the post before the game, and of course we hit a nice shot to it, and it goes through. No goal. The opposing goalie even admitted it was in to the ref(cool kid), but still no goal. -A kid on my team received a red card for saying, "What the hell" to one of my teammates. I am sure there are many more I am forgetting and will remember in ten minutes.
