By the way, if Barry was a "great ref and good to the kids" why do so many of them talk about how they want him gone. I even know that some kids didnt even want to play when they got to the game and found out he was refin? Yeah, he needs to go! No child needs to be scared of some terrible ref!

What are the poor little kids scared of? He's hard on them, but fair. If they think Barry's bad, wait until they get out into the real world...which is what we hope playing sports, going to school, having responsibilities at home, and attending church with good role models helps prepare them for, right?

They are scared of a litttle man who likes to intimidate kids!!!! We all know that he prepares kids for the real world!!!( That it is unfair and people will cheat you out of things to make themselves look better). He makes it obvious that he is bias towards other schools and never calls a game fair. If he was going to teach them something maybe he should explain what he is calling!!!!!! How can he be hard on them when he never gives the teams a fair chance to play a game. The kids already know when they see him calling their game he is not going to be fair but if thats what you want your kid to learn he is the best at that!!!!!! If he is so good why do all kinds of parents complain about him? Well hopefully they will get some more refs and they can let barry go thats the only reason they keep him.( they can't get enough refs to call games)

...all kinds of parents?...I think it's hard to see past a call that does not favor "your" particular team...I have only heard complaints on this board...he was hard on my son...but, fair...my son played during games that Barry Newsome called for years and he has never had anything other than positives to say about him...

I don't have children in sports ,but i have attended both boys and girls ashland youth sports. You made the comment that it was hard to see past a call that was not in favor of "your" team . I did not have a team and it was obvious that he did not like alot of teams and players! I am sure that when a man calls games like I saw him call and conduct himself like he did you will get only complaints. I don't remember attending any games he was a ref and not hearing people complain about how he treated kids unfair. I can say when you do bad then all you hear are bad things!!! Your son must be lucky that this man liked him and called all "your " son games fair. All I can say is that I am glad my kids don't have to play sports with him as a ref..........
give him a break

I have known Barry for quite some times. Having played sport all thru the years. He has ref my basketball games, umpired my baseball games. He has been nothing but fair to me in both. There were a few times as I was old enough to know better than do the things i did, He was there to calm me down and talk some sense into me, Rather than throw me out of the games.He was; end the end a friend, someone that you could talk with after the game was over...but in no way did he show favortism....There was several time I questioned his call...but hey that was life,I just addapted to what ever his decision was and moved on. ( thats life). He is good at what he does, and tries his hardest to make the right calls, but he cant please all the people all of the time. So people pleas cut the guy some slack...nobody is perfect.

...quick question...why did you put the the 'your' in the sentence "...'your' son games fair..."...another quick question...what schools are being treated unfairly by B.N.?...and, what do you suppose is fueling the bias?...

i have reffed with barry for 5 years. he got me into reffing. he is a very good person, and even tho you might not like his calls, everytime there is a game he is there and dependable. he is a great friend and a great family man. so all you people that have nothing else but to sit on your butts and say s)-(iT about people get in a relationship and find something else better to do.

I don't know how anyone can think Barry is a bad ref!?!?!
He refs fair and never takes sides, and always helps the kids.
I personally think that some people need to learn to grow up and learn that they're not gonna win everything and yeah life isn't always fair.
GET OVER IT!
He's a great ref, and doesn't deserve any of the crap that is said about him on here, and to the people that did, GET A LIFE!

Barry worked with me for everal years. Hewas a hard worker and a great family man. I have watched many area games that he worked and I found him to always call a fair game. Some of you people need to get a life.
