Some do, my point was most high school officials probably do not enforce the rule for fear out of making the coach angry and thus not getting “picked”...I think in college it varies from conference to conference

College seems to have it under control but that is why those guys work in college because they actually care about being good at their job  and enforcing the rules...high school guys care about getting picked by a coach


Not so much...college guys don’t enforce it.

Exhibit A - Big XII championship - Kyler



Exhibit B. - Tua



I truly hate this rule.  The knee pad as it currently exists does very little in protecting much, if anything. 

Our crew philosophy was to keep back pads covered, T-shirt’s tucked in, and knee pads worn as required.  That being said, the first two  are much easier to keep a handle on.  If the knee pad was close, we left them alone.  If it was egregious, we had them pull them down.  If they refused to even try to comply, we sent them out, but that was rare.

I agree I'm not sure what we're really trying to solve.  While I doubt we're going to have too many problems with 40/25, I think it's tougher with majority 5 man HS crews, HS chains, and HS clock keepers.

I tracked our timing for about half the season.  These are deadball to ready for play.  I don't know if formatting will come through.

Game   AVG Whistle to spot   AVG Spot to RFP   Total
1                 8.7                            3.8              12.5

Guys I can tell you it just not in Texas, In Arkansas we fought it all year, 2 of the biggest were covered knees and a lot of that had to do with schools that had bought pants that were too short to begin with, and around here schools can not afford to buy uniforms every year,  I just wished there was a way that the manufactures could be held liable for selling pants that are too short In NHFS which are the rules we are governed by it not like they don't know the uniform rules, Knees have always had to be covered

2 is the wrist play cards I can not count the number of times that I have seen these wrist cards on the belt. Again a rule that equipment must be worn like it was attended to be used as, then of course when you enforce the rules and make them move it the coaches say we been doing it all year, Maybe so coach but tonight we are going to be playing by the rule that govern High School Sports in Arkansas and it say equipment will be worn as designed, remember you signed my form that states all players are legally equipped, if a player is found in violation of the rule you are subject to a USC.

I probably like the most of you all don't like being the uniform police but it something we have to do like it or not I just wished we could get all officials on the same sheet of music it would make our jobs a lot easier

Sadly, in my opinion, many crews are concerned more with getting selected by coaches for the regular season and playoff games and don't want to deal with it and reduce their chances of a coach picking them.   There are crews out there that do try to enforce and we always hear, you're the first crew that has raised it an issue this year.

I predict we will see many obvious uniform violations again in the State championship games again this year.

National Federation Discussion / Reflection of Your 2018 Football Season
« Last post by BIG DON on December 09, 2018, 06:49:22 PM »
With 2018 Football season coming to a end for some or have ended for other Thought It would be neat to hear how your season went.

I will Start

2018 Started with me leaving my old crew, the White Hat was well past his time and all honestly was showing signs of dementia I will not go into a big long story about the  2017 season except to say at 3 of the 5 of us knew in week 3 that we would not be a crew next year. How ever I was not one of the 3. I was hoping the WH would retire and I just take over the crew as a whole we had a great crew. and we as a Crew talked to the WH and suggest that he retire and if not we would not be back

I was approached by one of the Conference assignors and he told me he had been wanting to put together a 2nd crew and Asked If I would be his WH He told me he had 2 other guys that he wanted to put on that crew do to retirements of others and That I could choose the other 2 slots

1 small problem I had 3 great choices.  We talked about it and the umpire on my old crew said he make the choice easy he was going to retire as well.

Crew came together and during our first scrimmage game we came together and meshed like we had been together 20 years
Coaches were asking where we came from because of how good we worked together
All in All great season first time in years I felt comfortable taking a night off and now worrying about my phone blowing up after the game.

We were chosen to work 2 playoff game (which is rare to get more then 1 playoff game as a new crew)
Our last Playoff game ended on a sour note
one team had 6 ejections 1 came from striking a one of my officials between USC and PF I think there were 18 fouls
One team was out of control
we done all we could to keep in in control
best thing about that night No Fights and No one got hurt
There is a lot more about this game that I cant talk about right now, everyone I have talked to tell us we worked a HECK of a game and they had never see any like what we were face with.

After 12 great games I just hate it for my crew that we ended on a sour note of a game, but we will use it as a learning experience

Looking Forward to 2019

YOu check the news papers on saturday,  had one out here both knees uncovered, jersey pulled up and back pad exposed, seems to be a pretty regular happening. 11 Saturday papers and 8 showed a violation.  And that's just 1 paper
