What's the funniest thing you've ever said to a sports official?

Discuss.

I don't think I've ever said anything to a sports official.

Does high school rollerhockey count? I called the ref an asshole telling him he made another bullshit call when my son got sent to the penalty box. I almost got kicked out.

I once got in a fist fight with a sports official named Troy. Or Roy. I can't remember. I won.

I told a referee at my son's basketball game he needed to get a new optician, and he ejected me from the gym, so I guess that wasn't really 'funny' per se..

I do have a funny story to relate, tho..on my son's team there is a player who's father is also a referee, so we're at this game and he's in the stands just going at the ref...finally the ref walks over and ejects him..which means he's supposed to not attend any more games in that particular wknd tournament...so he goes out to a costume store, gets a wig, a moustache and some glasses, and comes back for the next game. Stray ball goes into the stands, right where he is, and he sortof dive catches it so it won't hit this girl, and his wig falls off onto the floor (he's normally bald). Refs can do a max of 3 games in a row, so it was the same ref - ref comes over and recognizes him, ejects him for the second time that day.

Well I found it funny, anyways..

I once told a grey headed ref in basketball that if he called another foul on me for a hand check I was going to spray paint his grey hair to save him some money I got a technical for that need less to say

Uh, I may have anger management issues, and have played and coached on many different levels, BUT, playing co-ed kickball last fall, I was getting a little pissed a t a ref who clearly did not know the rules (yes, of kickball).

The play stops when the pitcher has control of the ball on the mound. Well, I was the pitcher, and after a kick, had control of the ball on the mound and a runner advanced. The runner was called safe, so I still argued the call.

The ump eventually asked for my name and I went into a Mora-like tirade "My name? What do you need my name for? My name?"

I was not tossed from the game - but we did lose.

My father, a longtime basketball coach, once threw his whiteboard towel on the court like a challenge flag to try to get a call changed.

in the local basketball league in high school, I was getting fouled left and right and the ref wasn't calling it. Then I was backing down my defender and the ref called charging on me even though the guy wasn't planted or anything. I got so pissed I threw the ball against the gym wall as hard as I could.. Got a technical and all my friends at school the next day asked me about it since I was always the quiet guy who never got pissed off.

There's a town where we sometimes go play hockey and, for no good reason, the refs hate everyone from my town. So here I am at the face off. The ref sees that my sleeves are up and it's showing a little bit of skin...He comes up to me and says Put your sleeves down. I ask him, What, does it excite you? He told me to shut up or else he would give me a penalty.

I did shut up...and I managed to hit him with the puck. I mean, he was standing beside the net It was an accident of course
