You can't applaud a referee.
We talked to the referees before the game; there's always new situations to adjust, for the refs and for us as well. Even on the ice, it's good for players to talk and interact with the referee.
No matter how calmly you try to referee, parenting will eventually produce bizarre behavior, and I'm not talking about the kids. Their behavior is always normal.
Life is a game with many rules but no referee. One learns how to play it more by watching it than by consulting any book, including the holy book. Small wonder, then, that so many play dirty, that so few win, that so many lose.
You don't notice the referee during the game unless he makes a bad call.
The referee is going to be the most important person in the ring tonight besides the fighters.
Having one child makes you a parent; having two you are a referee.
The referee will now keep track of the time on the field and the shootouts have finally been banned.
There's nothing better than a good, blind referee.
We have written to the match referee asking him to find out if Chappell has made the comments attributed to him.
I wasn't fouled. It was incidental contact. I wouldn't expect the referee to make that call in the NCAA Tournament second round with a chance to go to the Sweet 16. I wouldn't expect them to make that call to bail us out.
From our vantage point, he definitely looked in, but the referee said he didn't make it in.
The first condition is that the referee didn't see or punish what we will eventually talk about.
The matter was brought to our notice by the match referee who requested that an exception be made and the Indians' request be accommodated.
In our league, the referee doesn't have the luxury of replay. He was right there, but he wasn't sure and he couldn't make the call. I looked at the replay and it was pretty evident the puck was in.
You can't applaud the referee. He's a young man and didn't give himself a chance. He's a fiery character and, when he's thinking he's been done an injustice, he reacts like that.
I didn't think the referee had a choice with the red card.
The puck went in, and the referee admitted that he had blown the whistle before the puck went in and apologized. It was a really tough break. It would have been great to have the tie at that point, and take our chances in overtime.
You've got different parts of the agreement going back and wanting banks to play referee in this game. And banks sometimes have no choice but to protect their shareholders at the same time they are trying to serve their clients.
I just told the referee to cut it right there. We didn't have enough players, and it was going to be a blowout. We played four games with only 11 guys. They were physically exhausted.
One of my teammates said he was lifting his hand up, signaling (another referee) to wait. And I thought he was giving me a high five. It was one of the most embarrassing things ever. He kind of looked at me and was like 'OK?' It was really embarrassing.
Oh, no. No. I was frustrated and emotional. There was no malicious intent toward anyone or any referee.
There is no need for biting in the game. I brought it to the attention of the referee and if the authorities can see it on TV, they will see him trying to take a chunk out of my arm, ... otherwise you couldn't have scripted it better.
You have to learn what you can and can't get away with. Every referee is a little difference in how he calls it, too.
We were playing a very good side and with a referee who was a bit knit-picky.
