There have been some posts about poor reffing. What is your definition of a great ref? Just curious.

My definition would be:
Someone who communicates well with players
Gives and receives Respect
Controls the game but does not dominate it
Is able to skate with the players
Is knowledgeable of the rules
Is in posistion to make the correct calls
Has no bias
Is a good person off the court (Most people disapprove of having an ass as a ref)

o and a good ref should be able to call penalties on the right person...i have seen many times resently that someone will for example trip someone and the ref who puts an innoscent person in the box...same team, but not the person who tripped them

We had that problem a few years ago, solved it by having the ref who has called the penalty use their free arm to point at the player as he skastes, the ref, if he is down low, he will wait for the ref up high to come down low then cover high. It works pretty good, but I have been caught a few tiems reffing younger age bracket games at 6 or 7 am and not pointing, but usually the kid knows they got the penalty and will skate to the box for you.
