Re: Chief Operating Officer of USA Water Polo Hired

I do not know Marty Samuels but he appears very qualified - I certainly appreciate the challenges he is facing and wish him the very best in his new position. He is not the problem- he is merely the latest (and hopefully the most effective) solution which the BOD has thrown at what is clearly, an ou...

There are referees out there who have ego problems and personal agendas that can ruin a game but these 2 officials are not in that group. Neit...
