Hull have made an official complaint to the Rugby Football League over the performance of referee James Child in their 20-18 Engage Super League defeat by Castleford on Friday night.
The Black and Whites coach Richard Agar described Child's performance at the KC Stadium as "disgraceful" after he awarded 27 penalties, showed three yellow cards and sent off Hull scrum-half Sean Long.
Hull chairperson Kath Hetherington told BBC Radio Humberside: "I have put in an official complaint to the match commissioner. I don't think it's good enough that people who pay hard-earned money should have to put up with that. When players from both sides are telling you it's a joke, it's time the Rugby Football League listened."
She added: "It's not the first time this particular referee has been called into question and I would expect the Rugby League to look at it, just as we would look at a player who was making mistake after mistake week in week out.
"I've been watching the game for 52 years and refereeing is a hard job but there's a level of competence at this level and you can't accept a certain level."
Child was heavily criticised for awarding 37 penalties on the opening day of the season in the match between Wakefield and Castleford at the Millennium Stadium.
Meanwhile, Agar could be in trouble with the league after claiming the referee was "100% the reason" why his side lost the match.
"It's just been a good game and a good spectacle completely ruined by one bloke," Agar told the post-match press conference.
"He won't be under pressure will he? He'll be backing up in Super League next week and we'll get a sheet round telling us all his decisions have been the right ones, I guarantee you that."
Two years ago Hull KR coach Justin Morgan was fined £4,000, half of it suspended, for his scathing criticism of referee Ben Thaler.
