Thanks again, Mark.

I was once asked to work a women's community college game under NAGWS rules, when icy road conditions kept one of the assigned refs from getting there.

Thanks, Mark. When was the split?

I started in 1981, maybe 1982. I'm sure that if I knew about FED manuals, I'd have had them. If I didn't have them, how oblivious I must have been!

Manuals?

I'm curious: does anyone--MTD? someone else with an attic?--know when NFHS started issuing basketball officials manuals? My memory might be faulty, but I don't recall them when I started.

ilyazhito, I'm pretty sure MTD's question was rhetorical and bob jenkins' comment was meant as mildly sarcastic.

I agree--that was my point. I was responding to ilyazhito's comment, which I quoted, which implied shot clocks would be easier.

I'm saying two things, I think.

(1) I don't have a "default" on 50/50 plays: eg, reacting in real time, I see a charge or I see a block. In my mind, I don't "think" I see a block--I see a block.

Events in real time simply occur too quickly and are too complex for me to measure as if with a micrometer, so I have no default, no "go with" call--I referee the defense, immediately process what I...

But it would not be just referees who need to climb the clock learning curve. In my MS games, I have trouble enough with the table officials as it is.
