Quote of the Day
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.
Having one child makes you a parent; having two you are a referee.
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.
Once the referee throws the ball in the air, it's either your ball or their ball and you have to just take your shot.

You can't applaud a referee.
I play the game as honestly as I can. If the referee gives a penalty there is nothing you can do.
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.
There's nothing better than a good, blind referee.
The referee will now keep track of the time on the field and the shootouts have finally been banned.
Coaches do so much research about a referee because they believe refereeing is such a crucial part of the game that the result may hinge on what we say or do. They probably know more about me than I know myself!
But then southern hemisphere teams are more skilful than their northern hemisphere counterparts, which means games can be easier to referee.
Coaches will do what they can but it doesn't necessarily bother me. You are an international referee for a reason. If things like that are going to ruffle your feathers, don't bother doing the job.
The objective of a referee is not to get mentioned. I tell a lot of young referees that not being mentioned is king. If you can achieve that, that then it has been a pretty good game.
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.
I love what I'm doing. It's my life. When it's time to go, I'll probably be fighting to get out of the casket. I'll be yelling at the priest instead of a referee.
