Re: [Tactics] offensive player dips head under water

As a referee, if the offensive player "ducks into/under the defensive player" to try and draw the foul, I hold the whistle and if the defender takes the ball away, so be it. The minute the offensive player makes the choice to "duck under", they have given up all consideration fro...

Re: "Bench Pressing" on D

I would have excluded the player without a doubt. If you let the defender play that way, you are only asking for trouble. I am sure that the offensive player would be looking for "pay back" the next time he was mixing it up with that specific defender. Things would get out of hand quickly ...

Re: You Make the Call - 2016 - Game Winning Shot

Oh, good point. Looked like an offensive turnover, before he got close to shooting. The defender's hands were up initially, while trying to show he was not fouling, but the guy with the ball is hammering into the defender. Backcourt ref should have called an offensive at the beginning of the clip. H...

Re: You Make the Call - 2016 - Game Winning Shot

The 2m defender should have been called for a penalty for jumping off the bottom and blocking the shot on goal. Then the 5m goal would have been the game winning goal (had it been scored). Where was the front court ref and why hold the whistle?

Re: Refs says"I am god when I am in White and on the Pool Deck"

Unfortunately, old-timer this is absolutely the case. I was involved with USWP during the mid 2000's and the only events that I could possibly consider doing were ones that I could get to when my work took me to those areas. That's how I was able to go out to St. Louis to work the speedo cup, down t...

Sounds like this person needs some additional developmental work and a slight reality check.

Re: You Make The Call! #26

It looks to me like the defender tried to "cut off" the offensive player during the counter, thus initiating contact with the lead break player. It appears that he was buried by the attacking player on white, as a consequence of the defensive player moving into/ducking under in an attempt ...

Re: Penalty Foul after Buzzer Sounds?

If the ball was still in the players hand as the horn sounded, then that is the end of the period. No chance for a 5m afterwards, since the play was over when the horn sounded and the ball was still in the players hand. I am sure that the coach will figure this out at some point, if not, then I feel...

Re: You Make The Call! #25

looks like he stopped when he heard the whistle. He was still in contact when white buried the ball. Will wait to see what the actual call was.....

Re: You Make The Call! #25

Looks like Red initially had possession, but then appears to take the ball under, when challenged by white. I would say "ball under on red, white ball".

I wonder how many athletes outside of California tried out for these teams? Were there even tryouts held outside of California?

Re: You Make The Call #22

Bad exclusion call. The defender moved away from the player with the ball and had his away arm up for the block. Offensive player moved forward, back into the defenders space and shot. No call, in my opinion...

Nope, his windup brought him way inside the 5m line.
