Things that really need a referee...

Malcolm, I think you read the question wrong. It's things that need a referee, not things that have a referee.

Soccer games do have refs. See for yourself.

Moving on.

Lyn Chapman said "Cat and mouse fights." Amen. If cat and mouse fights were reffed, Tom and Jerry would have lasted about 10 minutes.

Derek thinks ultimate frisbee should have a ref. I think so too, especially singles ward games. Those get a little steamy.

Will, just don't give them the ice-cream, see how they like that.

Jon-Michael answered three times. Buffets, relationships, and tonsil hockey.
Buffets, yes. What would be better for buffets would be a traffic cop. He could hand out tickets to kids that ran around, teenagers that ate too fast, and grandparents that just HOLD UP THE SALAD BAR.

Relationships, duh. Tonsil hockey, had to ask Celia what that was...

Clark Schmutz (my awesome brother) said Costco. It gets absolutely nuts at Costco. Especially at the sample lines.
One time, I was 3rd in line for a sample of that spinach ravioli. The worker put down 7 or 8 of them, and the lady in the front of the line took all of them but one. She had like 5 kids and her husband, and they all got one. Me and the other lady (who were standing kind of side to side thinking both of us would get one) looked at each other, and then we both walked off.
I think parents take their kids to Costco for the samples. I mean, it's free lunch.

Niels, we should write a letter to Wal-mart, telling them that we demand referees next Black Friday...I didn't hear about the man that got knifed over an XBOX 360, but I heard about the Wal-mart worker that got trampled to death.

I found the article, and I took some of it.

Wal-Mart worker trampled to death by frenzied Black Friday shoppers

The New York Times

In a sign of consumer desperation amid a bleak economy, the annual rite of retailing known as Black Friday turned chaotic and deadly, as shoppers scrambled for holiday bargains.

A Wal-Mart worker on Long Island, N.Y., died after being trampled by customers who broke through the doors early Friday, and other workers were trampled as they tried to rescue the man. At least four other people, including a woman who was eight months pregnant, were taken to hospitals.

Fights and injuries occurred elsewhere at other stores operated by Wal-Mart, the nation's leading discount chain, which is one of the few retailers thriving in the current economy.

Meanwhile, two men at a crowded Toys "R" Us in Palm Desert, Calif., pulled guns and shot each other to death after women with them brawled, witnesses said. The company released a statement late Friday saying the deaths were related to a personal dispute and not Black Friday shopping.

Yeah, that was 2008. Ridiculous.
Moving on.

Yayah, I totally agree. Our family reunions definately need referees.

Thanks for the answers, guys. Niels, Black Friday is going to be reffed this year.
