that guy is right about the reffing, I was out there just watching that Nov 21 tournament the refs weren't any good. They tried but missed alot of calls, they are young and pretty inexperienced out there. I saw one player get another player by running and bunkering. The guy running was hit first but the refs pulled both of the players which knocked out the guys team for no reason. It seemed unprepared and the refs were having a good time. As far as just playing there you might get 6 speedball games in one day, that 8 hours and only 6 games, its a waste of money. These speedball games are 15 v. 15 games and so on. They make a bunch of money but still rely on volunteers. They need to get the picture that people are getting tired of waiting around for nothing.
Okay I reff at this feild, and just so guys will know, the reffs were from Extreme family and Expo army. I was in the tournament as well and I do agree that the reffing did suck that day, especially by expo army. Oh and about that guy getting bunkered, ANY reff even proffesionals would have made that call.
Tournaments always mess up our days. They slow everything down and limit how many fields we can use, and how many groups we can have. Unless a ref sees a play look one way before bunkering they will usually pull both or the player that wasn't looking the right way for a second.

I have played out their for a while, and i do agree that both players should have been out, unless i was right there watching the guys getting bunkered, then i would have chose the person who got out first but i would have no doubt in my mind that both would have been called out
most of the reffing on tournament days are very poor because of the quantity of people is alot more then the refs but the refs try to do their best job out on the field while they can
