Péter Zoltán Molnár

I was nominated for an old boys tournament. As most referees probably know it, you cannot make good calls for these experienced guys. They always know it better. So, I thought it’s the perfect time to try to boost my confidence. I was waiting for the game. One of the teams was famous of complaining and fighting all the time. As expected, we had to warn the bench after the second offense right at the beginning. The game was tough, and in the end, an otherwise very rough big bald center came to me and said, “even though we lost, you officiated the game well, thank you”.

I felt exhilarated, since such a compliment is extremely rare in an veteran tournament. I felt absolute confidence and dealt with the situations very well. Thank you!
