Public Service Announcement

Be a rules guy.
Be a rules guy.

Yes, we can talk about common sense and about game management.  That all matters…absolutely it does.  But when the game is on the line and there’s a rules situation, we have to get it right.  We HAVE to.

I am sick with sympathy for these guys, who must be beside themselves with guilt.

And I thank the judge for not overturning the result. My heart is with the Fenwick HS team, but games should not be decided in courtrooms.  That’s not a slope we need to go down.

Gonna hit that rulebook.  Join me, okay?
