Briarfield?

I note no emoticon or blue font, so I assume you were serious.

If so, that's a new one on me. Never heard of this mechanic. Who teaches it, where is it taught, where is it employed?

You should be in position--and watching for possible interference, as the BU has to turn his attention to first, on the back end of the DP, where the call might be a banger.

Mark, if you do not get an answer here, you might try Umpire-Empire (umpire-empire.com), a much more heavily-trafficked baseball site. There is a section called "Umpire Mechanics."

Depends on how the GK was prevented from acting. In FIFA, the offense of "impeding the progress of an opponent" (as it is now called in FIFA, I think, although it's still "obstruction" in Fed)...

I would focus on A2, not the GK. It is a referee's judgment call: how is A2 interfering?

(2) A2 is not offside, A2 is in an offside position, which...

Imitating the Pros

I'm firmly in the "keep the ball alive" school. Just because a batter puts his hand up as he settles into the box, I'm not going to call time. For safety, I will, however, stop a pitcher, if the...
