The announcer loved that the music guy got ejected. He said "put him in the box score"

There were never three refs in hockey. One ref and two linesmen, and in the old days, one ref and one linesman. In Europe they did a two-refs one-linesman system.

/Still funny. I laughed whenever they did it to me. Every once in a while, I'd borrow a player's stick and use it as a cane.

/Ump is a p*ssy. This is well within bounds. He should switch to tennis.

I used to umpire softball and baseball (dad's club) and the parents were by far the worst part of the job. One time my boss threw out both stands because they were taunting each other and the umpires. Amazing how much more fun the kids had once the parents were gone.

Galloping Galoshes: There were never three refs in hockey. One ref and two linesmen


For the most part, they are considered refs. It was pretty clear it's a generic term for anyone on the playing surface with a striped shirt on that doesn't play for either team. Linesmen count as refs and no one cares enough to bother delineating them. Do you get mad when people get mad at refs in football, too, saying "dammit that was the field judge, stop calling him a ref!"

Ha. My parents were better role models than that. They kept to a pickup truck in the outfield if they were doing that, and more about drinking and having fun than getting angry . They would buy me soooo many warheads from the concession stand if they were tanked.

I think this falls under the category of "Don't Do Anything to Incite the Fans against the Officials". Most of the time, officials do a good enough job of it themselves...they don't need the help.

So now we know TWO things about the umpire 1: He's incompetent and 2: he doesn't have a sense of humor.

My parents would occasionally yell at umps when I played baseball, and I would cringe every time. Mainly because they don't know fark-all about sports and just did it because other parents did.

Seriously, though, in 7 years of umpiring I never had to kick a player or coach out of a game, and I'm actually proud of that. Parents were worse BY FAR, especially these overachiever types who can't fathom that the game is meant for fun, not to crush enemies. These people would yell during the game, then actively seek the ump out after the game for a "talking-to." My go-to response was usually the Steve Buscemi speech from Fargo when the parking attendant is giving him a hard time.

While this may be true, it doesn't give an umpire or referee license to be a complete idiot or display obvious bias and not get called on it.

Sometimes, angry parents have a point.

My CSB:

Both of my daughters play, so I've umped hundreds of little league and softball games. But the winner is this one: Back when my oldest was 6 or so, she played parent pitch. I co-coached the team with a guy that was a hothead and prone to yelling. I'm behind the plate, and call one of our players out at first. He disagrees and starts yelling at me yelling at the kids about the call- won't shut up. His language crosses the line into unacceptable (expecially at a game for 6 year olds!) so I toss him. With prejudice and accompanying cheers from parents of both teams. He leaves, reluctantly.

Now, our team has no coach on the bench- I'm behind the plate and committed to umping the game. One of the moms has to come out of the stands and not only coach, but pitch to our team. It was a gong show.

He apologized after the game. He was a much more restrained coach after that day and realized that his actions cost the team. Post-CSB: His son is playing baseball at a US college on a scholarship, and my daughter took a silver medal with her college fastball team last fall.

Awesome, but couldn't they just then crowd around the fence line and yell from there? How far "away" do they have to stay?

Dumbass - you're umping an A level ball game. If you just shrug off the music, the 9 people who were in attendance would have heard it, maybe 2 or 3 chuckled, and everyone else moves on with their life.

you ejecting the kid creates a national story where everyone sees you're not only a poor umpire, but also a soulless bag of anger.

good career move, ump.

Umpire Ron Luciano (on a not-even-close play at second): "Yer OUT!!!

Oakland home crowd: BOO!

Oakland A's manager Dick Williams (after slowly walking to second base): Listen...

Oakland crowd: BOO!

Dick Williams (after a minute or so): You hear that Ron?

Oakland crowd: BOO!

Dick Williams: They're not booing that call, Ron, they're booing your whole FARKING CAREER!

Only person a ref can't throw out of the park is the park's owner.

During a college women's softball game that my girlfriend at the time was playing in, a ref called a foul ball on an over-the-fence hit by an opposing player that just barely passed to the left of the right field's pole. Never touch the pole an probably cleared it to the left by a good 4-6 inches. Obviously a fair ball.

The coach of the opposing team argued with the ref over the call. During this back and forth, an older man yelled down, fairly loudly, from a seat in the front-row right-side of the home plate "How corrupt can you be, Ump?" I heard him clearly, and I was on the other side of the field, half way between the home plate and third base.

The ump turned and called for him to be ejected but the man just laughed and sat down. No security came to escort him out. The ump kept signalling for the guy to be ejected until the coach who had been arguing over the play finally got the ump to shut up and understand that the guy owned the park. Unless the ump was going to try and remove the guy himself, no one was going to do a damn thing about it.

The thing I learned that day was Umps can't toss the owner of the ball-park out of the ball-park.
