Have you participated in any sport as a Referee? Best avoid, if you can. Referees in charge of matches that have strict rules to keep the character of the game intact have no friends. In the case of Rollerhoc this is particularly evident. Without a referee Rollerhoc becomes 'Roller Hockey' or worse. Players need to understand the philosophy behind the game otherwise they push the boundaries. They can’t help it. Experienced players resent being penalised. They are not used to it. This leads to outbursts of temper, arguments, dissent at best.
