  1. When my older daughter was about 10, she looked at me and said “Dad, you’re a football referee and a lawyer. NOBODY likes you!” Out of the mouths of babes ...
  2. Easily my favorite assistant coach of all time.
  3. Remind me to tell you about the Munster-Highland game in 1987. ... Or were you there?
  4. I might have a couple of stories to share ....
  5. Leroy Marsh is one of the finest men I have met in 40 years of officiating. I am very proud to call him a good friend. Fair winds, Coach.
  6. While I wouldn’t call it a “decline,” replay has definitely changed the way the game is officiated. There is much more of a “play on” philosophy, since they know replay can go back and fix it later. Did the ball come out first, or was the knee down. Officials who are backed up by replay are much more likely to rule it a fumble, and let play continue, since they feel replay can correct it if they’re wrong. But if they rule the play dead, there’s nothing that can be done to fix that.
  7. Once it’s legal, i’m happy to use it.
  8. Speaking only for myself ... as an official, my only goal is to get the call right. I’m willing to use any means at my disposal to get it right.
  9. Mel Kiper has the Pats taking Mason Rudolph in the 2nd round.
  10. You might be right. But I’m trying to think of the last time the Patriots traded up in an early round, and can’t come up with an example.
  11. And if history is any guide, the Pats will trade that No. 1 pick for several lower round picks.
  12. Who you callin’ “old?”
  13. What is a "catch?"

    I can’t see that it will have a lot of impact. The rule hasn’t changed at th e high school level. Now, will we be told to interpret it differently than in years past? Your guess is as good as mine.
  14. Well, if the kid is OK with the resolution, and the kid’s parents are OK with it, and the rest of the team is OK with it, and the school administration’s OK with it, but you’re not — I guess we’ve identified the problem.
