I think the biggest thing is the inconsistency. I was watching a bantam game, and watched a kid for an entire shift and his stick never once touched the ice. He skated all over the place, stick in the air, had 5 hits, 3 of which were way late. Nothing dirty, but he never once even attempted played the puck. No penalties called. A couple shifts later, another kid had his stick on the puck and put a shoulder to shoulder hit on a kid that was just text book perfect and he got a penalty. Probably because it was a hard it and a slight size difference made it look worse than it was. Bottom line is, the kids are confused on what they can and can't do. The worst part is when the 2 refs on the ice call it completely different. The ref that didn't make that call, skated over to the coach and said, "I have no idea what he saw, That was a good check." Then why don't the two refs get together and talk about it?
