    Officiated men's league games last night. The nice Jewish boys team has gotten aggressive—they're like a real Elders quorum team now. I had to stop the game and calm both teams down. Their captain kept saying, "we play physical, but don't do cheap shots."

    The fun thing was many of them were sporting kippahs with WE THE NORTH embroidered on them. That's the Raptors slogan:

    I have been asked to do a full college season. Community college that is. Of course this means different uniforms and rules.

    Soccer should just go by FIFA laws of the game and be done with it. No, each level has to have their nuances.

    Still should be fun except for the fact that the closest location is a 2 hour drive away. Still really excited.

    I'm quick on the trigger.

    My hope is to only carry a flag and wave it around. No cards from me.

    Congrats! Let us know how the season goes.

    I was asked by a couple colleagues to apply to the Eastern Association of College Football Officials early this year with the goal of working some JC and division III games this season. Then we moved. It seems like breaking in will be harder out west. A lot fewer schools that play football and more people trying to be officials.

    I got my first game assignments in Utah. I'm looking forward to some good old fashioned mormon hospitality on the sidelines.

    I did in July. I havent make a lot of noise about it. I miss the work I was doing but it was a great move overall for us.

    Football season has been great here. Not the level of what I remember growing up in Nebraska, but much more what HS football should be. NYC just didnt care a lot about it.

    That is nuts. If true, I would expect that parent to never officiate again. It would have been nice to hear examples of specific calls they claim were influenced by him. But obviously the fact that he was st field level consulting with the other officials is improper, first because he wasnt assigned to the game and second because he would never be assigned to officiate a game his son was playing in.

    this is great.

    “I did what was needed to make sure Naz won,”
    lol - i don't think anybody is disputing that. kinda the crux of the issue, in fact.

    “I didn’t make one bad call. I made sure the best team won.”
