    Angry sex with a soccer mom has to be pretty high up there.

    I thought it a nice touch, poin!

    Forsyth Co. is a BAD place to call soccer, mainly because the fans, as you can tell, are out of control.

    The AJC did a story a few years ago about the level of ejections in high school soccer. They were more than all the other varsity sports combined.

    I love soccer. I love to officiate soccer. But until fans become a bit more knowledgeable about the way the game is called, these things will never stop. I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.

    What's a ref or linesman get paid to work a club soccer game? $25? $30?

    Way too little. My daughter's club coaches should use all the time they use bitching at the refs to actually coach during the game.

    And the parents are ridiculous.

    The parents and coaches spending 90 minutes bitching to the refs are the worst part of the sport. Horrible examples for the kids.

    I doubt it's even that much, poin...

    I know a h.s. varsity match pays 50 to the center and 33 to the lines... if they use three.

    a lot of schools and clubs only use two to save money.

    I like how the reporter put this at the very end, just to get in one final dig at youth soccer:

    High schools in this area pay $80 to the ref and $50 to the assistants. A lot of teams but a limited number of officials. Younger guys are finally signing up to do it but before that, it seemed like there were only six officials for the 12-14 schools in the area and games had to be moved around because there wouldn't be any available.
