  • BTW...I'm sure they didn't think to ask for permission since there was a whole breast cancer event that evening and they were just trying to show their support.

  • Wow this is really weird.. even pro football players took a few weeks to wear pink gloves, cleets, hats, ect in support of breast cancer awareness but a high school ref can't do it? People are getting dumber by the minute

  • Isn't the whole NFL doing the pink thing right now? Why the heck would they penalize a high school ref? It should get over turned...that is ridiculous....

  • Its just a small town and the people who object are in the wrong---there was a poll that went with the article and it showed over 94% were on the side of the refs and their pink whistles. I bet they will back offand allow them to use the whistles and withdraw the penalties. How silly. Its no big deal.

  • Just another example of people wanting to take the power they have too far.

  • Shame on them...

    Everyone in sports including kids sports are supporting breast cancer, they should speak to them, if there is a policy about supporting any groups and let them know next time just make them aware.

    That should end that, and they should not be penalized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
