Smile Just a thought.

I would prefer to work 10 games on a 5 man crew with the same guys all season, especially if we have a great rapport and chemistry.

I just don't like to work 7 man with a different crew every week.

Good one.

But if R31 also signaled, it would be a fair catch correct?

If R31 did not signal, then the ball becomes dead but its not a fair catch.

R's foul for illegal batting would be penalized from R's 20 yard line, half the distance to R's goal because the end of the kick results in a touchback.
