No, just saying that if they have been paying attention that information is already in the literature. It is in the new rulebooks and they will get much of this information on many forms.

Yes, it is, but they already have access to that information. Now if someone asks (and they did not) then post away. But I get your need to do things over the top, just saying they already have access to this information. I doubt this is the very first time they have heard this is on this site unless they asked. And almost everyone that commented is not a brand new person to this site.

That is also possible, but it is not those people commenting on your nonsense. IJS.

And they can reread the material they already have.

Not A Big Emoji Fan ...

I sounds like your guys already got the new rulebooks in Illinois/Indiana.

If my Connecticut guys don't have the new rulebooks yet, then I'm fairly certain that a few new Forum members, and a few new "lurker" non-Forum members, haven't gotten it yet either.

When I "lurked, and then joined, the Forum, I just jumped in feet first and didn't go back and read any old threads.

And you're right, they all will eventually get the new rulebooks, if they haven't already gotten it. I'm just giving them a head start.

Please note that I added a paragraph after I originally posted about this, editing after you already replied.

Please reread the edited last part of my last post.

If I've taken your post the wrong way, never mind.

Paragraphs. The number one reason somebody will not read a post. I'm sure a lot of folks are like me and see a very long post and just skip over it.

No problem here. To each his own.

That's just to let you know that all that writing might be going for naught. You may think going into that much detail and using that many words is attractive to somebody trying to learn, but it's not.

New Rulebooks ...

I'm get a sinking feeling in my gut that Connecticut guys may be the last guys to get their new rulebooks.

I didn't write the 2018-19 NFHS Point of Emphasis regarding proper terminology. I just reposted it for those new members and new nonmembers who may not have seen it yet. We haven't gotten our new rulebooks yet in Connecticut and I may have been mistaken that some others didn't get their's yet.

If you've already seen the proper terminology list before, on the Forum, or in your new rulebook, then you probably passed on reading the list again, as I did.

If you hadn't seen them before, then you may have read them.

Because no serial killer would kick their cat.

Nope. But all the stuff you posted was already on the NF website. It was already on this website. The Simplified and Illustrated Rulebook is out. The Rules by Topic are out as well. Anyone can buy them now, including the rulebooks.

But for the record, we have camps in the late spring, early summer in Illinois. Been talking about the new rules and literature since May. In Indiana, the first meetings we had for basketball were early September. Reading this site for years, it appears that is not too far off from other states as well.

You posted a bunch of stuff that we have already read or that someone can already find on this site alone. So I am not so sure who you are posting this for?

Peace

Most Forum members, you, me, lots of others, try to stay on top of things. We all have something in common, a strong interest in fully understanding the rules, or we would never have joined the Forum to begin with. Most of us probably visit the NFHS website. I check it very few days for new 2018-19 Basketball Rules Interpretations.

But there may be a few members, especially some new members, and a few more non-member "lurkers", who may be a little less diligent. It is for those that I re-posted the 2018-19 NFHS Point of Emphasis regarding proper terminology.

Another reason is that I'm not sure that I agree with all of proper terms that the NFHS wants us to use (what is so unprofessional about "working" a game?). I was hoping that the re-post would generate some discussion, but perhaps I should have started a new thread on that topic. I still may, knowing that it will invite some differences of opinion (as we've often seen already on the Forum with endline/baseline).

Or, maybe I'll stay away from controversial topics for a while, giving myself and everybody else, a break.

I retire from my day job as a chemist on Friday. What do I say to hecklers who yell, "Don't quit your day job."?

OK, well let them tell us that themselves. I do not assume everyone is like me or anyone, but "Closed mouths do not get fed." So if there is something they want to know, they can ask.

Peace

Agree, nice quote (actually new to me, thanks), relevant, to the point, spot on, well played, but might I add: "You don't know what you don't know."
