I like using bluehost.com for my hosting, if you ever considering moving this site (although it would probably be more trouble than it's worth).

I'm not using GoDaddy for the hosting...only the registration.

My deep thanks, Carol, for all your hard work in bringing Refstripes back. A lyric from a popular song in my daze of youth was : "....you don't know what you'll miss 'til it's gone." Has rang true for me, and I'm sure, many of my forum friends. Here you are known as Carol1995 but to me ,you are known as Carol the Lazerius (a Biblical figure that came back from the dead).

                       MANY THANKS   tiphat:

First, I want to apologize for Refstripes.com being down over the past few weeks.  With the passing of Rulesman (Bob Dunham), the expiration of the domain registration was something that was not planned for.  Toward the end of his long battle with cancer, he worked with me to plan for everything we could think of, but that was something that slipped through the cracks.  I take full responsibility for that and am very sorry.

Thanks to a saint (Bob's wife), the domain was renewed and the site is back up and running.  After jumping through many, many hoops with GoDaddy, she was able to get the site registered again.  I will be moving the site out of Bob's name in the next few days so we won't have to deal with this again in a year.  You can probably imagine how much I hated to contact Mrs. Dunahm about this, but I know Bob wanted it to continue.  She was amazing and so helpful when I spoke with her about it.  She did more than was expected and I am very thankful to her. 

I began working on this the day the site went down, and thanks to GoDaddy.com, it took almost 3 weeks to get it back up and running again.  I never imagined such a simple process could be so difficult.  I also don't know how GoDaddy stays in business with the level of customer service they showed me and Mrs. Dunham through this.  We were told several times that they just couldn't help us.  In a nutshell, if you are planning to register a domain, I would suggest literally anyone other than GoDaddy.com.

As far as moving forward is concerned, nothing major is planned in the near future with the current discussion board.  If you guys see anything that is not working, needs to be added, or needs attention, please reply in this thread or send me a personal message (click on my name and then click on "Send PM" on the left side of the screen).  Also, if you have any ideas on how to make the site better, please let me know.  We currently have two admins (me and Big Don) and will probably add a couple more soon to make sure we can give the board the attention is deserves. 

Any feedback, suggestions, etc. is greatly appreciated.  This is our board.  I want to make it great for all of us.

National Federation Discussion / Re: Momentum exception: or not
« Last post by zoom on June 19, 2018, 09:55:47 PM »
This is clearly a Safety if the penalty is accepted under NFHS rules. (The result is different under NCAA rules).
The Momentum Exception is off because the ball left the end zone. (8-5-2 Exception). The foul occurred during B37's run (which includes the loose ball) so the basic spot for enforcement is the end of the run and in the end zone. Under All but One, that will be the enforcement spot. Since the enforcment spot is in the end zone, it is a safety. If the penalty is declined, it will be B 1/10 @ B-6. But, A will certainly accept the penalty. 10-3-3-b, 10-4-4, 8-5-2-c

In NCAA, since the forward fumble OOB is returned to the spot where the run ended, it never left the end zone and the Momentum Exception would still be ON. In that case, the end of the run would be the momentum spot, the B-4. Under 3 and 1, the penalty would be enforced from there and it would be 1/10 for B ay the B-2.
