    Dumb Officials

    In high school competition the referee of the meet can always over rule a call that another official made. Where was the proper judgement in this case? I have been a high school coach for many years. When I first started, in 1969 there were no uniform rules or jewelry rules. Some of the rules made sense, but some made no sense. When they passed a rule that runners singlets had to be tucked in at the start of races. I asked a veteran official that when auto timing was being done that made sense, but why was that rule passed in other cases. He felt that it was probably because in other sports the top had to be tucked in. In NJ in a state meet a kid was dqed for wearing a necklace. It wasn't spotted until the kid crossed the finish line in first place. The newspapers in South Jersey pilloried the decision. As a result in NJ, the violation has to be reported before the gun goes off in the case of uniform and jewelry infractions. If it is spotted later, nothing happens to the kid. A number of officials were unhappy, but the coaches were relieved. I guess we shouldn't be surprised at stupid decisions being made, because look at the world. Why should track and field be exempt from idiots? NO other province of the world is.

          At least you admit you're an anti-large person bigot :lol:
          Obviously every one of the people who write and enforce the rules weigh at least 300 lbs.

            Only if they are moronic dumbshit bureaucrats or minions thereof. For whatever reason they seem to congregate at the NFHS. Other large folks I have no issues with.

              You guys are veering dangerously away from the point here.

              A girl put her arms up in joy after winning her third race of the day. Relief and joy.

              To bring attention to this horrid problem, I will be holding a tea party this afternoon in protest of joy.

                But the girls behind her didn't get to raise their hands in victory, completely unfair! The only solution is no more competition. Just like real life. When the girls get off their bus they are all awarded a gold medal and then they all rise their fists and get back on the bus and everyone is happy. Why hasn't anyone thought of this perfect solution yet, although i know they will soon. :roll:
                phsstt!

                  I agree. And this way they can stop all of that boring and often painful training crap, freeing up tons of time for more important things, like tweeting.
