I agree with you. After getting it, I feel somewhat liberated and can go back to a somewhat normal life. I still wear a mask most places I go and do what I can to make other people comfortable and...

I feel as if I have recovered fully. Lost my taste for a day. Smell for about 4 days. They seem to be back to 100%. Felt like I had a cold for a couple of days.

As does my family. I figured it can't hurt to stay masked up and help society/mankind.

I am going to ref with a whistle shield AND/OR a face mask.

Funny you mention that. I recently had it too, but now I'm over it so I'm back in to honor my contracts. I'm not looking forward to it and it's going to be a crappy year.

I'm sitting the season out. It's not worth it and with numbers exploding, I don't expect much of a season. If I were single, then maybe I do it. My wife is scared to death about what is going on...

Some missed plays/calls. Some great calls. Just like most crews out there working across the country.

I 100% agree with NOT letting officials do both a boys and a girls state tourney. This isn't splitting the atom. This is officiating high school basketball. I think we all know A LOT of qualified...

I understand, but you earn your opportunity by your performance during the season.

I wouldn't want to earn an opportunity because other guys are capped.

Where I am from the state tourney is a very big deal and what everybody works for. The pay is not great, but the prestige and recognition is a big deal.

Interesting.

If you are potentially capped at 3 finals appearances, does the desire to go out and work diminish knowing that you cannot work the pinnacle game of the season?

Exactly my point and what i was trying to say/use as an example. Perhaps I did it poorly.

I've never EVER seen this called by an official at any game that I have watched or worked. Not one time.

So based on what little the OP said, you are just going to assume that the play falls under the case you are citing? You're just going to go offensive foul in the situation described?

I disagree.

Without seeing the video, we have no idea what really happened.

Perhaps the dribbler, had no clue if anybody was behind and was simply changing their direction. That's an offensive...

You don't know that the dribbler moved into the line of the defense and stopped on purpose to get a foul. They might have had other ideas.

It's not out of the question to have a quality team be very capable of passing the ball around and dribbling around for 1-2 minutes if the defense forces the action.
