You couldnt pay me enough to be a ref at one of those things. SOME parents not all ruin it for everyone

I don't say anything to the refs but they hold grudges and act a fool. It's not fair to the kids. It would be nice if they were outsiders. I realize it's not a pro game but when family memebers are reffing the games it makes it hard for them to be fair. I agree that parents make it hard on all involved I saw some outrages at the games. It must be so hard on those kids.

ok Geust, (or I am thinking you meant Guest), why don't you step up to the plate and get involved with the community and help out at these games. The refs do a real good job, and lest you forget, we are a small community and it is hard to get someone to call a ball game that does not have kin folks on a team or 2. That is just the way things go in small communities. As far as the officiating goes, I think that the officials of the pee-wee tournaments done a great job and I commend you for doing a job that no body else wants to do, for evidently doing a job that most people just want to talk about how badly everything was called. Good job, and I really hope that the same refs officiate the upcoming All-Star season.

Congratulations to the Black Boys and Black Girls teas on capturing 1st place this year in the Pee-Wee tournaments. Also Congrats are in order for all teams as this years Pee-wee Tournament was the best tournament in recent memory for me. Many close games, and they were a pleasure to watch and be a part of.

Maybe the one that "goes away," would you be willing to take their place??

There are good and bad calls made by refs of all age groups. The best thing to do is take it in stride and go on. The refs word is the last. Maybe they see things we dont from the stands.

I agree that they do put in their time, and that is appreciated. I, too, am involved with many youth sports...but I have to agree that they do hold grudges. I witnessed it all year with a particular boy. That is just wrong! Those kids pick up on that too....they're not stupid.

Thank you for recognizing that too. I think it is very wrong and something should be done about it. It's not fair to the kids. Besides that boy you are talking about don't deserve that kind of treatment. After all he is just a kid. And yes one of the refs is JR.

Maybe it is just a small community but that doesn't make it right no matter how you look at it. It's wrong and that's all there is to it.

You got any better ideas? Better yet, are you volunteering to be a referee? All I see is an opinion with NO solution. Good one!

I attended a pee-wee girls and boys game in corning a few weeks ago--isn't it wonderful that we have these programs for our young folks?I have coached sports for years and loved every minute of it,yes at times the fans can get out of hand and show bad sportsmanship,the best thing to do is (nip it in the bud)not go overboard with your athority tho.back to the game---the officals that day let things get out of hand on the court,roughing up the players and letting it get to the stage of on the floor in rage before the whistle is blown is unexceptable---then the corning coach says to his player --Good Job!!!!!!well yes we teach our players the art of compitition and how to be competative,but also sportsmanship plays a role in a winning teams honor,and it reflects back on us(the coaches)and our schools,this can follow us where ever we go as you know word gets around.finally a technical was called against corning,one!!!out of many that slipped thru the cracks.what is the world comming to all the fun is being took out of compitition and it now turns to violence--rage--knock um down if you can but don't fowl.geezzzzzzzzzzzzzz lets get back to teaching our kids good clean competitive fun---maybe the fans can pick up on sportsmanship along the way.I hope so--clean wins -----not dirty wins----both stand out ---but clean wins shine down on everyone involved---thank you.

I volunteer my time to peewee and other local sports, so I guess that gives me the right to say what I think. No, JR does not always call fair for a couple of the boys, and any of you who have a clue know which boys they are. A couple other referees are the same way. JR is an okay guy, he just needs to let it go and call fair, which he sometimes does NOT do. But all you can do is get over it and go on playing. The kids will be just fine.

Finally, someone else with my views. I saw too many games get rough. The girls were vicious. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. The boys got a little rough too but nothing like the girls. Enough is enough. Those kids are not being taught sportsmanship at all. Those kinds of fouls need to be pointed out. They will be going on to play and represent Corning shcools. Those knock down drag outs on the gym floor won't cut it. They need to learn now what sportsmanship is all about.

Get rid of the ref that doesn't make good calls and holds grudges against the kids parents or family. How's that for a solution! There are others that would ref the games. I know this for a fact. By the way what are you doing for the community and these kids?
