I noticed that a lot of people think that wearing wedding rings should be ok. I disagree. I witnessed an official catchinga ball once from his partner. The guy caught it wrong and jammed the finger. They had to cut the ring off before he could continue as the swelling made it a very dangerous situation. The rules for refs and players should be the same when it comes to jewellry.

Exclamation Jewelry Has No Place In Sports!

I never wear my wedding ring during games. My wife asked me once,after we got married, How come you don't have your wedding ring on? My reply to her was that I am going to officiate a game, and I feel that if the players can't wear jewelry, then officials shouldn't either. I feel that jewelry has no place in sports, and there's another reason why I don't wear it. I believe that jewelry draws attention to a person.Plus, that kind of attention may be negative to an assigner who is looking for officials to work their conference. Meaning, if an assigner is trying to fill one vacant spot on his/her roster, and the choice came down to two officials. Now,both of these officials are good, but one has on a Mr.T starter kit (jewelry). I would put my money on the official who is not wearing the jewelry!
