I was getting ready to officiate a game. I looked over and the two other officials were exchanging words and got into a fight. The coaches and myself went over and stopped it. i felt that we wouldn't be able to work together as a team, so i decided to postpone the game. is that the best thing to do?

As a coach, I know that I would have some issues if either of these guys turned around after their fight and started reffing my game. You have the option of going solo, getting another ref (doesn't sound like you had one), or calling the game off in my book.

Wow!

Exclamation

A few years ago, in an adult league, one of the players and the coach got into it off the court, during a time out. They were both booted from the game (and subsequently kicked off the team by the sponsor).

I can't imagine what would happen if I ever saw a couple of officals going at each other. I can imagine it starting like this, however.
O1 "Ok, I know it wasn't in my area, but the foot was clearly on the line, that's why I blew the whistle".
O2 "It's not so much the whistle, but the fact that you had to show me up that way!"
O1 "Oh, I was just supposed to let the wrong score get posted because you f***'d up a call?"
O2 "What do you mean I f***'d up a call? You've been blowing calls all night and I've been covering your *ss."
O1 "Oh yeah? Well your *ss is too big for anybody to cover!"
O2 "WELL, F* YOU!"
O1 WHACK, POW, SOCK
O2 etc.,

BBCoach asks in another post why don't officials get more respect? These two guys are not helping.

When I officiate, I make it a point to always be professional, cordial and respectful of the players and the coaches. Some members of my association are not quite so professional. We all end up losing respect in those situations. We are only as strong as our weakest links.

Give us a break. This is an isolated incident. THis is the first time i've heard about an official getting into a fight with another official.

I have however heard of many occasions where a coach has gotten into a fight with another coach.

Where and when did this happen?

It's an isolated incident if it even happened. I'm not saying messkin is lying. Just that I'm not sure we're hearing the whole story. Is it possible? Sure, and I'll believe it when I see it.
