New year's resolutions

I resolve to get in shape - preseason!
I resolve to check and replace my gear - preseason
I resolve to study one law each week and to think about the possible scenario's that the law may pertain to - just to be ready when they do happen
I resolve to listen to the coaches - not to hear their complaints, but to hear their concerns
I resolve to do a real pregame conference with my AR's - every game
I resolve to keep up with play
I resolve to see my AR's more
I resolve to remember....that I'm there for the players

We accept these. Will your status reports be weekly or monthly?
I'll make some of them - 1,2,5 (with partners). Already do 4 (not always), 6 (almost always), 8. Instead of all of 3, any rule that becomes a forum issue.

Cecilone,

Good point - follow through keeps the ball rolling!

OK- I've started #1 allready (too many Christmas cookies) -need to loose 10 -and no there will be no weekly report on that topic - I'll just handle it quietly, thank you!

The good news is that with the tropical weather in MIchigan (45+ degrees) running is actually possible this year.---Anybody have any advice on sore achilles tendons?

# 2 is done - just need a new battery for my backup watch, and a few new pump needles.

I'll report #3 (law 1) this weekend.

Ward,
May I recommend that in addition to your covering the Laws of the Game that you also read the FIFA Q&A as you go. There are some decisions presented in that document that do not appear in either the LOTG or the USSF Advice.

Here's the link:
