Summary page of fouls and penalties

Is there some kind of summary of all of the fouls and penalties, etc, for lacrosse? I am a new official, and am having trouble sorting all of them out - which are releasable and which are not, which...

...and wedding ring.

But seriously, I'm looking for an actual rule which allows/prohibits it for officials. My chapter says we shouldn't wear them, but it isn't anything more than them saying it....

l would like to know if there is any kind of rule prohibition in NFHS or PIAA (Pennsylvania sports association) against officials wearing sunglasses in contests. Our chapter whines and complains...

Ok - thanks!

BTW, I screwed this one up... I did call it. Being in a camp (player, not official), no one really complained. But I learned something. Thanks!

Illegal screen - lack of contact

I had a play that occurred a number of times in a game I just reffed that I was looking for opinions on how it should have been handled. A1 is dribbling around, and then stops to look for a place to...

Awful lot of assumptions in these last posts.

I have been a high school official for 6 years. I ran an IM sports program for 6 years as well, but have officiated hundreds of games outside this.

With the exception of concern over game flow (which shouldn't be a consideration of the officials), I agree with the OP - that is what I have been saying all along - follow the rules, as written, and...

So you would not call this as a foul, even though the player ended up on the floor, maybe bleeding? You would say this is incidental, by the rules? Just a simple yes or no.

They shouldn't have to. The rules say this is legal, that isn't, and they should be calling by those standards.

Um - nope.

Not even close. Never happened to me. And I'll tell you what - if I get reamed for following the rules, I doubt i'll stay silent on that point.

Why should the players have to adjust to what "You" call? Shoudn't they play within the rules, and when they don't, expect to get called for fouls or violations? This is my point - they shouldn't...

So you're just going to call what you want to call, regardless of the rules? Isn't this kind of against the point of having rules?
