  1. All Sports Officials need to stop ALLOWING THEMSELVES to become victims of abuse and assaults. PERIOD. To hell with "we're supposed to be professionals" when the circumstances dictate otherwise. 😞
  2. In today's world, there is no "safety in numbers". People don't want to get involved. For every good deed there is usually a regrettable outcome 😞
  3. IMO Ad companies in sports are nothing more than pimps and whores, but that pays a lot for the ridiculous owner and players salaries. It's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$. 😞
  4. All I can offer is this: Hydrate well before, during, and after a game. Think about using these: Cooling Towel w/ "Florida Water", FROZEN Cooling Pacts w / vest. The pacts have lasted 3 +/- hrs. in 90+ temps. . . . PS, I wore this gear for testing while working on farm so pants, aren't part of the uniform 🙂

  6. I personally knew a guy that bought his way to the LLWS. 😞
  7. The key wording here is "does not automatically exclude you from applying for a Regional or WS." You can put in an application but the odds of it getting anywhere is between 0 and zero. Politics and $+ rule LL.
  8. Hey Matt, I was the one that asked the question. It wasn't intended to be political or religious. You've expressed your thoughts. . . . carry on.
  9. That's fine Rich, it's a double edged sword. It gives me the right to express my "freedom of speech" as I choose also. :-)
  10. Yeah Jeff, it's something for some of us to think about. My honest soul searching is reminding me this: God, Country, and Family first. "To thine own self be true, for a man that stands for nothing will usually fall for anything."
  11. Aging_Arbiter, I'm a Vet also and your words were really my first thoughts and why I asked for opinions. . . . "but I don't know if I'd stay if that happened in a LL game. Sometimes, honest soul searching is an eye opener."
  12. Has anyone had the youth players kneel during the NA at the game during lineups? If so, what did you think, did you address it, or handle it otherwise? Is it our place to do anything? TIA :-)

    2020 OBR Rule Book!

    WOW!, just received the "book" . . . WAY too small printing for old eyes! Hope they come out with another source e.g. Kindle, .PDF, or format that can be magnified! . . . and not through a magnifying glass! . . . if anyone knows another way, please advise. TKS!
