1) Couldn't be more true.

Sad. OHSAA explicitly said to allow it in our preseason meeting. Now that it's allowed nationally hopefully there won't be any officials looking for trouble.

LOL. About time.

5/7 changes are fashion police, 1 is mechanics, and only 1 is a real change (for the few games that have fights or potential fights). Would have liked to see them change quite a...

Yes, I was referring specifically to the rules of guarding and legal guarding position.

Every player is entitled to a spot on the floor as long as that spot is obtained without illegal contact.

And you would be wrong. If anything, a block is the "default" call too many times. In recent years high school and college officials have been implored to not penalize defenders who do nothing wrong....

The RA has nothing to do with safety at the higher levels (though that may be a pretext). It has everything to do with more scoring. The NFHS doesn't care about that (nor should it).

Kinda my point. Kowtowing to coaches is a conflict of interest. Assigners that let coaches dictate who works their games and how those games will be officiated (often contrary to OHSAA expectations)...

Thankfully, I don't work in any conference like that (at least not that I know of). Amazes me how many self-important high school assigners act like their gigs are hanging on by a thread.

The OHSAA is not going to adopt a new 3-point line unless the NFHS does. And this is unlikely because (1) it isn't necessary and, (2) you guessed it, it would require schools, rec centers, etc. to...

So teachers now make life-or-death decisions daily. Got it.

Also, no one ever said anything about medical professionals or first responders except you. You continue to bury yourself.

Not really.

If we are going to keep saying that "athletics are an extension of the classroom," there's no reason why officials shouldn't get the same protection as teachers.

Articles from that blog should honestly be banned from Yappi. A disgrace to journalism. I haven't read one credible thing from that source.

Then again I reckon that's why it's a "blog."
