    I always found baseball the easiest to referee and the most pointless one to criticize referees. Not exactly tough to get it right. Too bad other sports are more rule-filled.

    Today a Utah soccer referee died after being in a coma from a punch in the head by a player that didn’t like the yellow card he was given. What is wrong with not just sports, but the entire world. I stopped watching or having anything to do with team/competitive sports a while back because of the horrific lack of sportsmanship. What we are teaching our children should make us all ashamed!!

    “Nobody loves the Ump.
    He’s the apple of nobody’s eye.
    I’ll never know, never know why…
    Oh, nobody loves,
    Nobody loves,
    Nobody loves the ump, the ump,
    Nobody loves the ump.
    YOU’RE OUT!”
    — Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, & Bob Hope, “I Love Lucy”

    George Carlin once suggested that we take the word “kill” in a lot of clichés and substitute the word “f***”. One of the examples he used was, “F*** the ump! F*** the ump! F*** the ump!”

    Not only that, but it was a teenager who could be up for manslaughter charges, if not worse, now.

    @treesareus. Paint dry? You must not have seen the sixth game of the world series between rangers and cardinals.

    From my experience, the parents – mostly fathers – are not only tough on the umpire/referee, but on their kids. Took a father/son friendly soccer match to shut some of the critical (read abusive) fathers up back when my kids played soccer.
