None of us are perfect, but I am saved by the silent section.

A U10 game was going on behind my game and a small handful of parents were ALL OVER this poor 14 (?) year old kid. I could hear it from the middle of my game. Halftime comes and I roll over and light into the small section of parents. Remind them the ref is just a kid, ask them how they would feel about someone treating their child like that...remind them we are struggling for refs...and end by telling them they disgust me. One tried to say something and I yelled "forget it."

Walked away to a small handful of claps and more than a few "thank yous." The next day my assignor texts me and says... "I hear you yelled at some parents....again..." Then he gave me the two best games of the weekend.
