Lightbulb Not really an issue. It is really personal IMHO.

Agreed. I was just saying that it was nice that we now had in writing the option of getting away from the coach in a heated situation. I suspect this is the way many of us have been handling it for many years. But as with any time there is a change we tend to over-disect it and read too much into it. Debate is what makes us better officials however.
Well, I live in an area that does not have slaves to the NF Mechanics. I agree in most things we should follow the NF Mechanics, but does anyone know a single person that calls a PC Foul the way the NF suggests? There are always things the NF suggests, but does not mean we all agree with it. This is just one of those times. And just think it has never been a problem to tell the coach yourself as the "calling official." And most officials I worked with did the same.

No big deal. But opinions were asked about it, and I gave one. Outside of this board, this is probably the biggest discussion I have had on this topic.
