Who is in Who is out?
« on: September 10, 2010, 08:04:10 AM »
Wondering how many of us would be willing to state in this forum if they are in as an official next year or out if UIL is successful in squashing TASO. Simply state in or out.

I am out, 8 years experience.

Too early to say. We need to see how things play out.  The only thing I know for sure is that if TT has any control over football officials i.e. evaluating, assigning, disciplining, etc, I am out.  20 years.

That what I was saying Mike. UIL has control and TASO is done. TT is the man in charge.

I plan on working games as a NON-UIL official.  If there is a game to be played, the schools will hire anybody they can find to cover their games.  I'm not sure about other chapters, but in mine lets say this.  If 90% of our officials went UIL and 10% retired.  That 90% would not be able to cover all of our games.

Unless it is one of the mega-chapters (Houston, Dallas) all chapters may find themselves in the same boat. Especially with normal retirements, new guys that do not come back, work related changes, kid playing, etc.

Guys to be VERY honest, at this point I really donít know what Iíll do.  I love this game, donít like the take-over plot, but Iím not ready to hang it up.  I lay awake at night thinking about all the possibilities.  I know it may sound dramatic, but after 20 years my decision will ultimately fall into the hands of my crew and my chapter.

Time will tell I suppose but with only three years in, I think it is hardly time for me to call it a career.

I have 12 years in. I probably will still call and see how things go and see what is in place. Honestly I am not stressing about it now. I am enjoying my season and making sure I am doing what needs to be done. To me we are right back to January 1st of this year still waiting to see what shakes out. I hate the idea of change and how it is being conducted but that is not in my control.

16 Years

I'm willing to go on strike for a year to support TASO and stuff this takeover down the UIL's throat the way they have stuffed it down ours.  That being said, if TT were removed from the picture and the registration remained free, I would be more than willing to register with UIL.

I'm not going to let TT run me out of officiating all together--but I'd love to drive him out of the UIL.

I agree.  We need to be able to have one of our own within the UIL so that person would have some pull over the officiating department.  TT out.  Mike Fitch in.

I second Jason's idea. Fitch has forgotten more about officiating than the monkey has tried to put on youtube. Personally, i am still holding my cards and waiting to see what develops before I decide. A 1-year no reg. fee as well as some TASO leadership may convice quite a few to drink the cool aide.

33 years for me.  I don't mind giving up the field so much.  My passion now is training my replacements.  I am holding my decision to see how this plays out.  If TASO is gone, so am I.

As opposed to retirement - something that hopefully is far down the road for all of us (ornery excluded) - Would you be willing to give up the last week of this regular season and this season's playoffs as a show of power/support?  I would be willing to do that in a heartbeat if it means 20 - 30 - 40 more years of TASO run officiating.

32 years old
5 years white hat (14 games this season which puts me in the top quarter of Houston crews, I am only putting that in because UIL thinks us youngens are chomping at the bit to call more games if we jump ship and that is not the case)
11 years football
18 years basketball (yes I joined when I was 14) quit basketball last year when they went away from TASO)
Will NEVER register with UIL (under current structure)
I am very happy officiating all TAPPS/TCAL/ private school 6man with TASO for the foreseeable future.
Will be happy to join any work stoppage protest.

Thanks

31 absolutely great years and counting. Our Lord has richly blessed me with an avocation that is second to none, having met some of the most dear people that you just couldn't meet anywhere on this earth. I will wait until November, but if the only choice in leadership is with the UIL and Good Time Charlie and his Dancing Monkey, then I believe that I've had a stellar career and will just start to rededicate Friday's to the family. But I will, no doubt, get to see a lot of my friends up in the stands on some Friday nights.

If TASO survives: IN
If UIL Registration is Required in Any Form: OUT
Walk Away in Week 10: Will do so only if it helps TASO in any way.

I don't wanna have to decide Its my Crews Decision.  In the Crew System is not just about you its the Crew too.. We get games ( regular and hopefully playoffs) as a Crew... But I won't strike in week 10  Why hurt the Kids for grown up fights. I agreed to my schedule and whether or not the UIL keeps its promise to TASO. I will keep mine to those kids. This will be the last time most of those Seniors will Ever be on a football field.  After week 10. We can accept or decline additional games or new schedules.  IMHO.  I still kinda new at this 10 yrs and don't know that i'm ready to give it up....UIL has never done anything for me that I know of?   But I'll be honest. I don't know how much TASO has.   Its like the election. If I don't like who we elected (not going to say who i voted for either way) I'm not moving to Canada.

At least with TASO you get to vote for your leaders.  The person you vote for my not win, but at least your vote counts.  UIL will not allow you to vote so basically your voice will never be heard.
