Bad experience last week.. I won't name the team we were playing, but they exhibited one of most disgracefully physical performances I've ever seen in my three years in CASA.

I understand that this is a physical league, and that you gain a competitive advantage by frustrating your opponents with tight marking and rough play, but the line was crossed last week.

I received a 3 inch gash on my ankle, had a shinguard broken, and took about 3 or 4 cheap shots when the refs weren't looking. I was on the receiving end of 2-3 retaliation tackles, and our guys were getting cleaned out left and right. I was covered in dirt with 40+ minutes left to play.

When referees blow the whistle, but don't issue yellow cards, teams continue to do this. When there's no punishment for ridiculous behavior, players will continue to kick, throw elbows, trash talk, and do all of the childish shit that shouldn't be done in a recreational soccer league.

It's the first time I've refused to shake hands with an opposing team after a game. You know who you are. You should be ashamed of the way you played on Saturday.

Kevin and Eryk, you need to lodge official complaints about these specific refs to Mark Garcia and Casa as a whole. Its very shameful and despiriting how some refs in Casa are officiating their games. Some referees have no idea and no knowledge about soccer game and its rules and some are flat out incompetent and bias. We the playing body has to set the tone and agenda of where we want Casa to be and what we want Casa to become to the officials. We need better qualified refs who know the game of soccer and know very well the rules of the game. We need refs who are not incompetent, bias, or who wears their emotions on their sleeves and refs who are not racist, to handle these games.
Casa is beautiful and a great medium, it is however becoming distasteful, what we need is to keep it fair, true,respectful, fun, clean ( this includes those of us players who do not help make the game/league a beautiful game and bring unnecessary adversity,malice, disrespect and unruly behaviour to the game).
The onus is on the Casa office and head of Referes to take the bad and incompetent referees out of the game and bring in good refs to help make Casa the great league we all want it to be.

Thanks

Eryk, dont give up, did you report this to Mark on all the occassions? Dont give up , every single one of us has to speak up against such biasness and shameful behaviour from the refs and some teams. We love Casa and together we must ensure its success and posiive growth.
I know alot of different players who complain about such heinous acts by the refs and are appalled by it but these players do not report to the league officials. I am one of those players, its took me 4 years to lodge a complaints to Mark Garcia and i know there are several other players who go through such bad officiating and receive malicious and disrespect from refs and some players every game but these players do not report not just that,but they do not speak up and stand firm against this. Casa is for us all, we, the playing body must set the tone and steer the league on how we want the league to become.
A league is only a league when the playing body lead and not when a few unscrupulous and prejudice refs run it.

We want this league to be better for generations to come, it has improved, thanks to the work of some of the officials, however in this day and age, the small strides and improvement made by the league is simply not enough, we know the potential of our league, we know it can be much much much better as it stands now. The onus is on us all to make Casa league a better league and a beacon of inspiration and a true fun,fair, respectable and great league in the state. We need to move for a meeting between Casa officials , all captains and all the REFEREES and head of the refs to thrash and solve this big issue that has been plaguing our league for years, if we do not ( i mean all of us) insist on such a meeting to deal with this big problem, Casa will not be what we all envisioned it to be and definitely CASA will not be the FAMILY and HOME it was meant to be for all of us.
