: : : : : : Many refs for the city section are horrible. I've seen many times were they hold grudges on coaches and take it out on the kids not calling the rights calls, letting things go, not controlling the game and letting things get out of hand. There job is to control the game NOT TO GOVERN IT. Many of them cost the game for teams and will do anything possible to make sure the team they do not like does not wish the game.*

: : : : : : Thoughts ?

: : : : : There are good reffs and bad reefs, doesn't really matter the section.

: : : : There are many different units around LA and they all do their certification differently. Which is why you have a discrepancy with different referees. Unfortunately some of the refs are in it for the extra cash. Others do it because they like the game and want to be around it. I do it for the love of the game as well as the extra money, but more for the love of the game.
: : : : If you have an issue with the referee, send video of the game(s) to the unit that the referee's are from. Here is the website for the CBOA -

: : : Thank you in truly appreciate it

: : : You get what you pay for, refs get between $20-$30 per game.

: not true
: varsity refs get paid $60-$70 bucks per game

As a referee and coach who attends many games, parents and coaches often do not know the rules. Now, many referees make mistakes. High school referees are not professionals. Consequently, they do not spend all day training to be a referee. They come from another job, just as many HS coaches do. They are not perfect, and most good referees acknowledge that.

However, when I attend games and sit in the stands, many of the parents complaints are baseless. Many coaches do not understand the traveling violation; it is not the same as the NBA rule, as an example. The call argued for the most is "over the back" and there is no such rule in the rulebook. Also, parents and coaches have no appreciation for what referees are looking at and which referee is in charge of that area.
