I don't have any real input into the main question of this thread, but I want to ask a question of my own. Why would you agree to stay for an "extra quarter"? I've never been asked to do this, and I guess I just don't understand why an official would stay after his assigned game to work extra. If the agreement between you and the assignor is that you work one game, then you work one game. If the coaches can't figure out how to get the kids in the game, that's their problem, not the official's. Are you compensated for staying after the game? It just seems like a strange practice to me.

Chuck
