My son did his first year of officiating last year. He was a PWAA goalie and I was shocked out how little he was available to ref. Most of his income came when we were done and the in house stuff was still going.

He got the bird from a parent of a 12U game this year. As a coach and hockey family, I kind of prepped him for it. He is beyond confident in his call and just laughed the parent off. Not all people are able to do that.

Bottom line, we need to restrict parents from view and/or access to the refs. I get what I am saying but that’s the only way it changes.
