Robert, welcome to the forum.

One of the most imprtant things I learned in my first season was to SLOW DOWN! This now my fourth year and I still have to remind myself from time to time to slow down, relax and let the game come to me.

You are certainly correct in your observation, "I quickly learned that all my experience meant almost nothing, it's like a completely different game depending upon your perspective." Understanding that players, coaches and fans come with a decidedly biased perspective has helped me grow some thick skin over the past four years. Just call what you see, and you'll see it a lot better as you slow down.
