Sure you can bash them, but even the worst refs have a sense of humor. Let's hear them. People at my school tend to think I play too rough and if they could, they would give me a straight red the moment I steped on the pitch. I was in a 3v3 tourny set up by the Burn and I must say the refs that were out there for the men's rec were great. Never really did anything that warn us if we were being to rough, whose ball it was if it went out, etc... Any how at the end of the last game, I'm sitting in the refs chair in the shade(hey I didn't know it was his.) He sat down on the ground and I asked if I could be show a yellow. He asked me why and I told him. He gave me a yellow, a red, and then the one where you do the yellow on top of the red. Oh and the ref never got his chair back.
