The topic of referees is always confrontational.
With that being said here’s my take - first of all all referees are part time officials who chose to work for many reasons. And In CIF games, they are trained and only working 1 game at at time, separated by benches and bleacher and protected by administration and often police. They are also paid a “reasonable” fee.
In AAU tournaments, we set up the scene for disaster - the fans who believe their child is playing for a scholarship are 5’ away yelling at a referee who may or not be certified, who is working his 5th or 6th game of the day and who is getting paid $25-30 per game.
