At the higher levels of the game, I'd imagine we see a lot more challenges in the box from smarter players knowing they only get a yellow and not a red.


Regarding the discussion above about losing hs referees, more frustrating for me than the pay with arbiter is all the bureaucracy involved in re-certification. I'm not particularly interested in attending local OHSAA meetings for rules on games that won't even count towards my advancement to higher USSF grades.

I've noticed more and more "non-soccer" guys refereeing local youth games with me lately. One said he started with football, then wrestling, finally soccer. Had another guy with me in the next game who was basketball then soccer. The good thing about these types of referees is they almost always have strong on-field demeanor/leadership and can keep control of the game. The downside with them is their positioning usually is not as good. The very best referees are the guys who can anticipate direction of play so they are always in position to make the right call. ]That's something that comes with an understanding of the game rather than an understanding of the rulebook. Along with that, you have to be in shape to run when you need to get into position to make the call.
I think these multi-sport OHSAA referees are going to become more and more of the norm as the OHSAA keeps making it more difficult for younger referees to certify and lowering the incentives of certifying.
