Welcome to the _broken_fibula_now_have_plates_and_screws_club_ !
Bet you didn't know there was one right ?
Myself, and now Sarcastro from Athens (our last Atlanta home bout) are right there with you.
Broke mine playin, not reffing, but it still hurts the same.

This thread is a great answer to the naysayers who claims refs don't need to be GREAT skaters.

I saw a ref sprain an ankle during the national anthem, of all things!  He was turning towards the flag and somehow twisted his ankle the wrong way and went down.  So we were short a ref for that bout, but he hung around after the EMT checked him out, and he became a penalty timer for the bout.

Up until my injury, I'd never hurt myself worse than I did when taking a digger while standing still. I don't know what it is, but it just sort of happens to me from time to time, and it always hurts really badly when it does.

And, honestly, I'm kind of glad to hear there's a club of sorts for this crap... I think I'm still the worst injury while actually reffing a bout, though... Something to be proud of? *sigh*
