I think a larger question is how many refs are going to be available in VA. I'm currently in between associations, but I'm telling you right now, I wouldn't work even if I was still employed, and...

In the DC Metro area:

I've gotten NCAA soccer games, although one JUCO (and the closest one at that) said they'd shut down all NJCAA activities for 2020-2021. My local travel soccer league plans...

I wholeheartedly agree. The "free training camps" we have to do for one of our shared assignors does nothing but pad his pocketbook with our sweat. It ticks me off. With all my free time I'm starting...

I work college soccer, and I agree with Rutledge on what happens if you don't have camps. Now, soccer is starting to transition to camps because soccer can't find enough refs, but at these camps we...

So far all of my camps have been cancelled, except for one in Texas which was rescheduled to late June. That ticked me off, because D1 extended the dead period to July, and DII can only recruit...

You got to realize that in the DC area, we view Marion Barry as an idol. Pitino was set-up.

Honestly, it's hard to imagine the reffing landscape where we aren't independent contractors.

Would you care to share? When those camps were first mentioned a few years ago, I was curious what would make them any different from your standard D1 camp.

And I agree with Raymond: If this can...

I might've buried the lead here. The larger takeaway is that they are claiming that the NCAA and conferences were acting as "employers" under New York state law. Link to actual filing:

I've been to a D1 camp where that was promoted. I've been to a D1 camp where we were told not to do that. I've had professional soccer refs do that, and those that are mic'd up say it as well. It's...

Hell if he's generous it'll be the rest of the season. If I was the coach, I'd be demanding their heads on pikes and to burn down their homes.

This has to be one of the worst calls I've ever seen. I hate to armchair officiate, but damn was this a bad call.

What went wrong?...

That's why I've made the decision to turn down any possible offer. Unless by some miracle they cede control of the assigning to the actual assignor, it's a figurehead position.
