JRutledge's posts would be a lot more understandable and worthwhile if he were to differentiate between his preferred methods (that have made him a very successful official in more than one sport); and the accepted methods of his local or state associations, as well as his assigners; and the "real" NFHS rules or interpretations (that could possibly apply to a wide range of Forum members).

We all understand the concept of "When in Rome", and of individual things that we do (often in opposition to the NFHS rules and interpretations) that make us, and our local or state colleagues, successful basketball officials.

In the case of JRutledge, one can't argue with his success. It's undeniable. Heed his advice. But as important and educational as his Forum posts are are, can be, and should be, I wish that he would stress when he posts something "NFHS different" that makes him successful, allowing Forum members to easily pick and choose among his posts for his sage career building advice.

No need to identify judgment calls as being "NFHS different". We all know that judgment calls are inherently subjective and are educated opinions rather than "alternative facts".
