Not all of them were "flagrant" but damn. In no particular order:
The refs were outrageously incompetent and should not be permitted to ref; These kids have no balls. Fat fucker would have caught an ugly elbow away from the ball when I played high school ball; Look at how the fat fuck struts around and smirks like he's the king of the roost; My high school team would have been brawling; The statements of "support" from his coach is outrageous - he should be teaching those kids good sportsmanship and clean play, not how to act like thugs; and, Foul #5 should have been a flagrant and possible ejection.
Fuck I give a lot of credit to some of the players for not losing their cool on those fouls I'm small guy but had that happened to my teammates the Fat Fuck would have had it after the 3 "foul" Whether I would have rushed his ass from off the bench and be done for the season, some times you got to make that statement
I'm amazed the bench didn't clear on the 5th one. The "Teddy Bear" would have gotten fucked up. If I were a parent, I would have been on that court handling the ref and the fucker's coach. Fuck the dumb shit.
1: You might give the benefit of the doubt if you haven't reffed these guys before.
2 and 4: I'd probably call these technicals before flagrant fouls. They seemed more like fighting/frustration moves than excessive contact fouls or intent to harm.
3, 5, and 6: These were bad, 5 in particular. I wouldn't blame a parent for coming after a player for that one, and I'm as critical as anyone when it comes to parents during these games.
All in all, clueless refs. One call like this might get away from you from time to time, but when this happens 6 times in a game, you are obviously not there. I hope this wasn't a Varsity crew, because if it was, than at least 2 of those guys were veterans, and it's inexplicable that they got that far without learning how to control a game.
It's not an issue of "controlling the game". The game was never out of control. You lose control of a game when teams are sparring. The other team did not retaliate.
Those fucktard (can't believed I used that expression) refs are either complicit or incompetent and neither is acceptable. There's just no way under any reasonable judgment and experience that foul 5 is not a flagrant and, if you to consider his previous fouls, an ejection.
Those kids didn't look very skilled so it COULD have been a JV game but that is still no excuse.
I don't know about getting involved as a parent but I'd be pretty fucking vocal. And I'd fully expect my son to retaliate - he'd face no discipline from me.
