My crew committed to the coach that drafted us for week 10 at the beginning of the season.  We will not go back on our word - for ANY reason.
As did mine.  We are not backing out the UIL is adding another stipulation on us participating that was not part of the orignal contract.  My crew is going to show up.  If they tell us we have to sign up with the UIL then I will show them the contract I have to officiate that game and have them escort us out of the stadium if they do not want us to participate.  At that point it is on them not on us.  They are screwing over kids and breaking contracts not me.

I have signed contracts for Week 10. I'm speculating that my crew will not register with the UIL by that date and show up for those games with contracts in hand. If the AD so informs us that we cannot officiate the game that we have a contract for, then we'll turn in our pay information to the AD and leave the stadium at his request; hence complying with the  tiphat: Good UIL Dr. and his  :!# Dancing Monkey's lockout. The AD is free to call our secretary to see who is UIL qualified that they get over there to call the game on such short notice to ref the game. Either that or they could get the chain crew and clock operators to call the game!

 Then I think it would be most appropriate to contact legal counsel to follow up on this situation. If the school districts and the folks over there on Manor Road get enough of these suits lodged against them, then I think that the heat would most definitely be directed toward Breithaupt and Timmons and they would be forced to make changes to their arcane policy toward officials.  I still think that a federal discrimination suit would be the best thing filed because there is no action currently being taken by the UIL against their debate and one-act play judges.

The UIL Minions are solely banking on the premise that way too many officials would merely cave-in in order to be able to work 2010 UIL football playoff games.   z^

Wow Arbitrator finally agreed with something I said.  See we are a lot alike.  Except I do not use as many icons as you do.  Discrimination lawsuit is the way to go ;D ;D ;D
