I went looking for the "Dumb things players say", but couldn't find it. (I found the "Parents" and the "Referee" threads; still good for a laugh.) I ref'd a lopsided open division match last night. One 'keeper was over 40 and clearly not a 'keeper. On one of his clearing throws the ball slipped from his hands and landed on the ground inside the penalty area. A teammate ran by and dribbled it out. No problem. At the other end of the field I hear, "Hey ref, don't you know the ball has to leave the area before he can do that." I wonder what he would have said if the 'keeper had simply kicked the ball on the ground.
