We have a pre-game with captains where sportsmanship is the emphasis. Over the past two seasons, I have done about 150 games and called about 35 T's. I do not regret a single one. The only regret is that I didn't call 2 that I should have.

I'm with you. I grow weary of hearing officials pay lip service to how important sportsmanship is and then making every excuse in the book for not penalizing poor behavior.

And whenever I'm with an R that thinks the stupid pregame meeting (combined coaches/captains here) is his "time to shine" (and it happens plenty), I know I'm in for a long night.

I refuse to read sportsmanship card I make my partner do it if I ref somewhere it is required. Good coaches donít need to be told about sportsmanship and bad coaches donít listen

My pregame is
Introductions
Property equipped, no jewelry, watches or bracelets
Any questions?
Good luck get them ready
