Body Cams.

(First post, been lurking for a while. Just wanna say I appreciate all the information and discussion that's shared in the forum; it's helped me improve my officiating a ton.)

I'm entering my fourth year officiating for my school's intramural program, and we're beginning to explore this idea to show the players what it looks like when they yell at us in the game. Not a bad idea!

I think referees should be allowed to wear body cams if they are allowed to focus on the hot moms.

Yeah I doubt any players are gonna care what it looks like from our perspective. Save your money and put it into more training for your officials.

Yeah, probably not. We're planning on also recording games for the first time so we're trying different things. Sideline cam, body cam, etc.

Just borrow camera from your local Police Dept. You know how much they like wearing body cams

Filming the game would be great, especially from a tv-like angle. From ground level on the sideline....not so hot.
