What about "You're wrong, you idiot"?

I think there are much bigger fish to fry.

I've said it. It's my opinion and that's all there is too it you can't fault me for stating my opinion, so no need to flame me.
So what other rules don't you like? If every offiical decided he/she wasn't going to enforce some rules they don't like would that be okay with you? Enforce the rules and "by rule" your butt is covered. Ignoring a rule will only get you in hot water. Good luck with YOUR OPINION!

I don't see where constable says he doesn't enforce it, was it in a different post maybe?

Or are you saying we aren't allowed to have opinions on the rules? You might want to ask the mods delete the rule change threads, then.

Probably inferred from this post.

In our region, they advise us to warm first. Then T them.
Though I don't understand the use of a heater in these situations.

I resemble this post.

IMO, they were wrong and shouldn't come back.

Maybe, but that post stated the direction he'd gotten from the authorities that rule his area. No where did he say he wasn't enforcing a rule because of his own opinion. I don't particularly care for the AP rule the way it stands, but I enforce it. I don't particularly care to grant coaches TO's, either, but I do.

But he did rationalize not calling the T because it would piss off the coach.

That's not the same as stating that he didn't like the rule.

True, but no inference was required.
