Refereeing

I watch alot of Major, Senior and Junior games and this year there seems to be quite an exception as far as refereeing goes. It seems to me that alot of the "established" referees seem to feel like it's below them to ref anything but Major games and when doing so, don't give it their best effort. I've seen ref's act like they're above the game in several instances this year in the Senior B league concerning just about all teams.

The old adage is that a referee is doing a great job when you least notice him on the floor, well this year they've been very noticeable and I'm not noticing anything different as far as play or level or incidents involved in the game. Anyone else with a comment regarding this issue would be appreciated.

One Senior B coach said something similar to me except he feels that the refs show Senior B the least amount of respect of the four OLA leagues.
