Question 1: was that a deliberate kick at the soccer mom? Question 2: do you allow soccer parents to be sitting this close to the field?

Since Christmas is drawing nearer and nearer, I though all us refs could put together the 12 Days of Christmas, soccer ref style! Please leave your ideas below for our song and at the end we will put it all together! Please have fun with it and get creative!

U17 Premier girls match during a college showcase. I was center and black forward is attacking down the right wing. She is one-on-one with a defender on her. Just as she crosses past the 18 (and a few yards wide of the PA), she stumbles and falls without any contact whatsoever. White defender...

These referees obviously need a refresher - They don't match each other, only one is distinguished form the players, and their positioning - just wow [video]

I was centering a U9 Boys Rec game (If you don't do these little ages on occasion, I would encourage you to. The game is still fun for them, and you get to be viewed as a "teacher" rather than a "hardass"). Second half and Orange is up 3-1 and entirely dominating the match. White deliberately...

So, as last weekend in Chicago was pretty rainy (Mr. Moloney will know), I decided to start a topic about your best foul weather or bad conditions story! We had to switch fields, and the game technically wasn't even supposed to be played, but nobody got the email! My line, as AR2 was practically a...

The worst I had was playing in high school...We had had monsoon rains for days before the game and through the game. The field literally was covered in an inch of standing water. Screwed-up the play as no one could dribble or pass but the players had a great time splashing and sliding through the...

In my first year as a high school referee, I was assigned a match and the CR was a very talented and veteran referee. Throughout the match, the coach on my side was constantly shouting at the referee. At one point, the ball goes out of play on my side, near midfield. The referee held up play and...

I was AR2 for a youth rec "fun" tournament, where they weren't even keeping score. Before the game started, I asked all of the spectators to back up and give me at least two yards for me to run in, explaining that I don't always watch where I'm going when I'm following the play. Everyone moved, no...

In addition to being a referee, I also coach my son (who is also a referee). Yesterday we had a particularly obnoxious center referee who wanted to "lay down the law" very quickly. His pregame speech to the team was "Yesterday I reffed a game and I gave seven yellow cards and one red card. I will...

Giving the third yellow, not bringing your cards at all, losing a whistle? - what's your funniest "oops" moment of your career?

Worst I've done is go out to start the second half and I'm standing there with both teams ready to start play and I realize I left the ball by my bag. Now nothing is happening except someone running to get the ball and it is painfully obvious I was the idiot that left the ball on the side.

I'm not a fan of River Plate but D'Allsendro scored an unbelievable goal today in the Copa Libertadores (and considering he grew up and went to watch Argentinos Juniors, this gives him extra points)....

Witty and clever referee quotes always made me laugh. They can either help you get out of those tense situations or simply put you in even more trouble. I think it's a two-sided sword with many one-liners. Share with us your favorite lines are and let us know how it worked. One of my favorite ones...

One time I ran the line for a BU11 game and blue was full of talented players who were destroying the white team. In the second half a white defender had his legs spread wide open and the white coach and I simultaneously counted down 3-2-1 until the player got megged. The players on tw bench gave...

Since a lot of us will not make it to referee at a MLS level or because we now live in the United States, I guess we can say what team we like. I grew up in Argentina and I'm a fan of Argentinos Juniors.

Mark previously posted a video of flamboyant Brazilian referee Jorge José Emiliano dos Santos (nicknamed Margarida, or "Daisy"). But the rumors of his death are greatly exaggerated. He is alive and well (or at least survived well beyond 1995) but I believe now retired. Here is some more video of...

It would appear the confusion stems from there being two Brazilian referees born in the 50s, both with the name 'dos Santos', and both nicknamed 'Margarida'. This guy, Clésio Moreira dos Santos (born 1958), is still very much alive, whereas Jorge José Emiliano dos Santos (born 1954), is the one...

In the last few weeks I've had two separate amusing incidents of "intersection" between different soccer roles. I am both a referee and a soccer coach. Of course, many other referees wear both of these hats (and also that of players). Incident #1: I was working AR on a game and early in the...

Based on the new offside guidance you did the right thing. It should be part of the pregame how to handle this situation. In a competitive game I think you should call it the right way like you did in this case. If you are talking less skilled or out of shape players then you probably should just...

I was AR2 on a U15 girls indoor game. This league tends to be low-key, with parents occasionally lightly engaging the ARs. The fans were within 1-2 yards of me when I signaled for an obvious offside against a player running alongside the other touchline. Referee acknowledged and blew the whistle,...

I know a referee who was being heckled by a spectator at midfield. It was good-natured, but too frequent. At a stoppage in play, the referee went over to the gentleman and asked him to get up from his chair. The heckler obliged, confused. The referee sat down in the chair and announced, loud...

That's rough. The only similar experience I've had is because I used to use fingergrip whistles (I grew up watching a ton of hockey and it just made sense to me). There was a foul and I lifted up my hand to blow the whistle at the same time that a defender turned around sharply to clear a ball and I...
