I can just feel the warmth and love emanating from this group. I just took a walk on the wild side and visited that "other board" during lunch (have no idea why), and all I can say is it gets brutal over there. Particularly the recent discussion on being perceived as a "wise-a$$ official. Even with some of the "heated" discussions here, it ain't like the other one.

Question

What are you referring to as the "other board?" I'm fairly ignorant...

Pretty sure he's talking about Gary McGriff's board.

Mostly humorous to me. Started going to learn, stayed for the entertainment value.

Peace

That's not a problem of mine, I am learnin' and unlearnin' stuff over there all the time.
Shoot! I think I kicked at least three calls over in baseball and a couple more in softball in the past week.

I didn't screw up anything in hoops, though, cuz I don't work AAU.

--btw,was the boxtop a shim?
--I didn't look at the box really closely...mighta been a sher!
--when I'm not sure if it's a shim or a sher,I call it a sh!t.

Not sure about the "entertainment" value. Sort of like watching Jerry Springer or Howard Stern -- you know it is dumb, but you watch anyway.

Actually, it's a good learning resource during the season. It just gets slow and degraded this time of year. :-) But it is entertaining and there is still the occasional good question on rules or situation handling.
