Agree. My partner, and I, try to be as consistent as we can, for the entire game. No way am I suggesting to the coach that we want to get in, get out, and get paid. Those scrubs that only see varsity action in blowout games deserve the same level of officiating that we gave both teams for the first twenty-five minutes of the game.

When I'm the referee, this is how I end all of my pregames: This game is the most important game being played anywhere tonight for these kids, fans, and coaches. Letís make sure we officiate the game keeping that in mind, through our effort, and attitude.
