    Not only do the refs have to have the physical ability and stamina to skate as hard and as long as the players while they take an occasional bone-jarring bump, they are also expected to get in between fighting players to pull them apart, and that happens all the time!

    Yeah, if I had to choose a sport that I didn't want to ref, it'd be hockey. 100 mph puck flying at your face, plus sticks, skates, and huge men moving faster and faster plowing you into a wall....I'll pass!!!

    Hockey is the most dangerous with the puck coming at you skaters getting fights pentalies disputes the fight is the hard trying to break them on skates thats tough but al sports can be difficult since I am a referee myself

    It's a tie between hockey and baseball. Football could be dangerous too. But a hockey puck and a baseball can kill you easy. If your not playing attention

    It has to be baseball since the ball is not controlled once it is hit. You're generally hitting left or to the right or down the middle but that is it. football next since the ref's are usually in the mix with the players, they are routinely ran over knocked down and in danger for most of the game.

    I think hockey is the most dangerous sport out there. I can't imagine being hit by one of those hockey puts going 118 mph!..

    THEY CAN ALL BE DANGEROUS... PERHAPS WE'LL SEE ALL SPORTS PLAYS IMMEDIATELY DETERMINED AS GOOD, BAD, LEGAL,OR ILLEGAL BY COMPUTERS ONE DAY. FIGHTERS AND IMPROPER PLAYERS COULD BE ZAPPED BY COMPUTERIZED TAZERS ABOVE THE PLAYING AREA. ....OR ROBOT REFEREES.

    The referees for our battō jutsu matches took their lives in their hands. We didn't practice with wood, we had shinken (live steel; sharp steel; combat swords) after the first two months of classes.

    118 mph tennis ball is a picnic compared to getting hit by a 118mph hockey puck or a swinging stick. NHL refs get the crap beat out of them over the course of a season. So do MLB umps.

    You're standing on ice with a solid hockey puck flying around all over the place. There are big guys swinging big sticks that are always getting in fights not to mention flying around on the ice and pretty good speeds.
