I am not still coaching; however spent much of my career in CMAC and have sent in very glaring clips of that rule and others way more egregious than the rules mentioned to league assigners and up the line and to no avail. Unfortunately the not power leagues/teams get bottom barrel officials and the response was always essentially along the lines of "sorry, but be happy you had officials at the game. You get what you get." So I eventually gave up and accepted pi$$ poor officiating.Are you still coaching? Send the clips in question to the league assigner or Beau Rugg/Bruce Maurer if you think the rules are being misapplied. Seriously.
And hopefully no high school officials are justifying no-calls with this non-NFHS verbiage.
Whenever we played like a GMC, or GWOC, or other good team from a good conference, we were always amazed at how the officiating was improved dramatically!
