For a viewer, there was enough confusion of time remaining....

Flag

Why doesn't NASO or someone make it mandatory to sew a US flag on all uniforms? Think it would be a great move, and I know many already have it on their shirts.

Bay Area Associations

Welpe,

There are a number of associations serving the Bay Area. You may want to consider two things: 1. Where you will live, 2. Where you will be leaving from on Fridays (taking the commute into...

Tough Situation

Do you think that in this case replay hurt the situation? In previous times, they would say that the refs missed the call, grouse about it for a few days and then move on. With replay, the game now...

You're a riot!

Taha,

Not sure if you were quoting me correctly on all of the virulent blah blah blah that I apparently was spewing. For your assertion that ki-o-rahi afficianados are so tough, you've sure got a...

And don't forget that the touchdown signal in football will have a confused basketball scorekeeper only put three points on the board for the scoring team.

The Goal Line trumps the Sideline!

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER compromise the goal line!

On this play, you have to do your best at making a really tough call. But, if you give up the goal line in hopes of ruling in bounds or out of bounds,...

I'm confused about whether one of the number 12's had a prior USC.

If not, my thought would be to treat each #12 as a unique player. For example, 12-A and 12-B. Then, I would record the USC's and...
