  1. Max, My family used to foster Greyhounds growing up and I've used that as a handle/gamer tag for years now. And I'm a lot quicker than i look for being a bigger guy. Always surprises people. I appreciate the offer on modifying the Platinum if needed. It's always been solid but Im hoping the Cobalt can be the new go to. Being lower profile and cooler officiating here in Texas. I assume you are a fan of the Cobalt Max?
  2. I think I'm gonna pop on it and see how it fits. Retire the platinum to a backup. Appreciate the insight. The reviews are almost all positive on ump-attire except for a couple people saying they got hurt when hit, but those have been very few.
  3. Good to know BT. We are similar sizes so thats good to have as a reference.
  4. I'm thinking heavily about moving towards the Cobalt CP for next season. My question is how does it fit huskier umpires? I'm 5'9 260ish currently with broad shoulders and I am curious if anyone has experience in how it fits. Being a bigger guy I'd appreciate the lower profile and bulk versus my WV Platinum ive been using for years. Thanks for anyone's thoughts and opinions.
  5. That's fantastic. Congratulations and don't suck!
  6. Damn. I'm gonna have to think about this one. Considering I'm looking at a new CP for next season and finally making my WV Plat my backup may be hard to justify the money right now. Want something less bulky.
  7. Do you know how the LUC-Mag pads would fit in the Nike TI mask? I put them on my Diamond mask and like them so far. Bulkier but more comfortable than my TW pads.
  8. I've tried doing some research on the site. But there is so much. Can someone break down for me why these mask are so good and worth the money? Visibility? Safety? Weight? Just trying to get more info and see if its worth popping on one.
  9. What style are the pads on these? I am not familiar with Nike TI at all. I know everyone talks about them like they are the holy grail.
  10. Welcome to the forums! Oh man. I feel for you on this one. Nothing gets me more upset than a coach questioning my integrity. I loved lawumps first idea, to call the coach out loudly and publicly for the world to see. But to be honest I doubt I'd make it that far as the instant those words came out of his mouth I'd have tossed him. Don't ever accuse me of cheating or favoring a team. Tell me you thought I kicked a call, that my zone hasn't been great, but never that I was out to get you and your team and purposely kicked calls. I hope you write to the league president of the association you were calling for and have then do something about it.
  11. @BT_Blue Included are the sunglasses, a microfiber cleaning wipe, a hardshell Oakley case, and a second set of nose pieces (not pictured). I understand the confusion due to the title of the post.
  12. Wolfe, This would only apply if the obstruction caused him to miss 2nd in the umpires judgment correct? He doesn't get a free pass if he is obstructed 10 ft off of 1st base and then just steps right over 2nd on his way to 3rd.
  13. I was wondering if I was missing something with talking about wearing a plate coat in August.
  14. That's outrageous they let them back in the game. I'd never call another game for that TD ever.
