    Thank you Dave. You are one of those BROTHERS too. I hope your ears were not burning Saturday as the crew was talking about how much we appreciated your efforts to support us during your time at the NDHSAA.

    ThumbnailIt is with a sense of melancholy that I write this week’s Saturday Morning Stripes.  It is that time of year we reflect upon another season of football nearing an end.  Some of us are fortunate enough to have another week or so left of regular season.  Some have some work yet at the college level.

  • Jeff Fastnacht commented on the blog post Captains Request   1 week ago · View

    From the case book 4.3.6 SITUATION: Prior to the ready-for-play on a try, A’s captain requests the ball be placed on the right side hash mark. A then deploys in a spread formation. (a) A1 does not like the defensive coverage and requests a time-out; or (b) a dead-ball foul occurs. The captain of A [...]

    It continues to amaze me the things we see and hear while doing this wonderful job.. or maybe better stated HOBBY.  Officiating just never feels like work.  My crew and I had the opportunity to see one on Saturday that we may never see again.  If you recall Saturday was windy with the National Weather [...]

    Many of us are probably familiar with captains asking to place a ball on specific location between the hashes during free kicks or a try. But, do you know the seven situations when a captain can make this request? The rule in question is 4.3.6 ….Before the ready-for-play signal, A may designate the spot from [...]

    Pat your welcome and I think you are exactly right in third paragraph… Just hitting a player and bouncing off them is not a muff. We did debate the real world actions of a muff. All the aspects you indicated are complex and many rules go into this. I very much appreciate your comments. Thanks.

    Pat,
    The muff in our real example and on the video took place in the field of play and forced the ball into the end zone.

  • Jeff Fastnacht commented on the blog post Force & A New Adventure   1 week, 6 days ago · View

    Ron, we had the same discussion on that Fri night during halftime. Our discussion point focuses on if the original force was a factor, or not. As you said would it have gone into the end zone on its own. In our real example the ball was still rolling with energy and was probably on [...]

    Last Friday our crew ran into a rule enforcement that we have discussed countless times.  But in order to share it with you, I ran into some trouble trying to explain it.  So this weeks posts deals with FORCE and we are trying something new… our own video.  Hope you enjoy it.

    Tyler I appreciate your thoughts on this. Do you normally put new “green” officials on the wings? Maybe a better question is where are crews starting new officials? I had not thought of that.

    Thumbnail Several years ago at an officials workshop in Sioux Falls I first heard of linesman flipping sides at halftime.  This was shared with those in attendance by Mike Spanier (NFL Line Judge 1999-Present).  At that time we thought it as unique idea but didn’t really think of it much more than that.

    In 4th grade, understanding the numberline and what each tick mark that is not labeled stands for tends to stump children at times. If it is…we need to work on understanding number relationships and plotting numbers according to what the difference is between each. We teach the students to relate to money (500 is 5 [...]
