    Ask The Ump?

    ?? I know...that’s why I said if the ball came to a stop and he moved into the path between ball and home after it stopped, but just merely being in the way by itself would be nearly impossible to deem intentional

    Ask The Ump?

    I’m late to the party; but did the coach move before the ball came to rest? Meaning, if the ball was still rolling/bounding, it would be nearly impossible to get that for interference as how would the coach know where he will best be in position to block a throw home. If the ball comes to a...

    Wrestling and the Herd Immunity

    April through October is 7 months. 3500 / 7 is 500 per month, nowhere near 875. Still high, but nearly half of what you claimed.

    Ask the Ref.

    I do not believe so. The shortage of officials (for all sports) is mainly due to low pay versus high stress. People will say something like "you get $30/hour" but you are also driving to and from, changing before and after, and preparing (I umpire baseball and spend probably an hour cleaning...

    You make the call. PI or not? NY at Fairland

    Just to clarify, that was a long-winded way of saying that it is wrong to say that a situation should determine whether you call a foul, or it has to be more flagrant. The only thing that heightens if you're level of certainty...don't make a game-changing call on the last play if in a flash you...

    You make the call. PI or not? NY at Fairland

    I have never officiated football, but I do baseball and wrestling. First, I have to completely agree that there is zero way to tell exactly what happened from the two videos I have seen, which is amazing in this day and age where everything is on camera, that no better angle exists, but oh...

    Ask The Ref?

    With so many playoff games being postponed until tomorrow, what happens with the officials? for example, a guy I umpire baseball with drove from Akron to Columbus last wknd (2 hours) to work a playoff game, and then drove home bc he had to work at Fed Ex at 4am. He wouldn’t be able to stay...

    Best QB in the NFL

    I never said Allen was trash or didn’t belong in NFL, but the post/thread is about the best in the entire league. Anyone who would argue that Allen is in THAT discussion is just a Bills homer at this point.

    yeah, this argument didn’t survive very long

    Best QB in the NFL

    yes, because until the other QBs in discussion have similarly bad games, you can not make an argument for Allen, and now for Rodgers. if and when Wilson has a terrible game, then we can go back to comparing whole body of work. but for now, they are both out of the discussion.

    Best QB in the NFL

    Think you can remove Josh Allen from the recommendation list/post. I think Mahomes is the most electric, I think Russell Wilson is the most “valuable”, I think Aaron Rogers is the most determined this year. I am in the group that thinks MVP is different from best player, valuable means...

    Leveon Bell is available

    I’m sure someone will take a chance on him because, I BELIEVE I READ THAT, any team signing him can do so for the league minimum bc the Jets have to pay his salary (6 more million). Team signing him will give him the minimum (whatever it is, let’s say 0.5 million). The other 5.5 million comes...

    Interesting Article About Minimum GPA Requirements

    Well since the entire thread and article cited are about McK eligibility requirements, it’s safe to say the “higher emphasis” was in regards to them requiring a higher GPA to play sports. they have a higher emphasis on the academic requirement to be an athlete. but you changed it to apply to...

    Interesting Article About Minimum GPA Requirements

    graduation rate and eligibility have nothing to do with one another. I work for a D1 university. To be eligible for sports, a freshman must have a 1.8, sophomores a 1.9, juniors and seniors a 2.0 GPA. however, every single degree program requires a 2.5 to graduate. so one could play sports...

    Interesting Article About Minimum GPA Requirements

    Just so everyone is clear: students must pass 5 credits, meaning a D- or better, and it can’t be “basket weaving”. In most HS, kids have 6 classes, but the half credit classes (art, gym, photography, etc) won’t help unless you have 7-8 classes (since you need 2 passing to equal 1 credit, just...

    NHL versus NBA ratings

    Maybe after 6 months of not being able to do anything, people don't want to sit and watch endless commercials and political statements for 3 hours at a time, not to mention zero fans in the stands, so not an exciting atmosphere of game. I said back when this first started, when there was...

    Ask The Ump?

    acting like you are receiving the ball is legal, acting like you are tagging is obstruction. The runner and/or base coach should be aware of where the ball is. that said, 3 of the 4 sides of the bag I’m getting obstruction for blocking or impeding path of the runner. The sides facing 3rd, 1st...

    Ask The Ump?

    This is what AS would call a HTBT play (had to be there), but it "sounds" like you got the calls correct. The mere presence of the bat is not interference in of itself...no more than if dropping it in the box or tossing it towards their dugout on way to first and the bat ends up in the way...
