  1. Where is the easiest/best place to replace the metal hooks for shin guards. I bought some Douglas shin guards on here and the plastic and padding are in good shape, but the hooks are all rusted. I also bought the shin guard straps from Ray at Umplofe but they don’t come with the hooks. Thanks

    I am a fan of their "by officials for officials" mantra. But I have noticed the same things you have as well. 

    I look forward to the finished product. And who know... this COULD replace my beloved All American. 

    If it does I would love to buy your All American.  :wave:

    Here’s another tell. We would sell a lot of Wilson Golds or Wilson bags at 99.99 if we truly wanted to clear them.

    Why we would we offer them for $66? Or $75 leaving money on the table?

    If it walks like a duck...

    Well I ordered two different products from two "different" sellers with these low prices using Paypal just taking a chance(knowing that I should have no problem getting my money back through Paypal).  I received both today, but the problem is they are from Ump-attire.  They show as being purchased by another name and address and then shipped to me.  One shows as being someone from New York and one shows from someone in Hawaii.  I assume these are stolen cards/info used to purchase these? I will contact Ebay and Ump-attire tomorrow after my games to see what to do.  

    Obviously I will not use the gear tomorrow, because most likely this was too good to be true and is something fraudulent.  If so I will ship them back to Ump-attire and hopefully be able to get my money back from Paypal/Ebay.

    Today I received notice from the NJ Division of Unemployment Insurance that I am eligible for PUA benefits. I filed the claim on April 21 after the state gave guidelines to independent contractors on how to apply for benefits. 

    That is great.  Somehow I got approved for state of Georgia unemployment even though I wasn't eligible.  I am not accepting the money, but it is now a hassle of trying to get in touch with Georgia to be denied so that I can apply for PUA benefits.  This has been such a hassle.  

  5. Apparently there is a proposal to move the start date of D1 baseball to Mid March and run through June, with post season starting in July and ending in late July.  Supposedly this would save lots of money for Northern teams on travel(be able to play at home instead of heading South) and the hope is it would bring more fans with better weather and not competing with basketball for half the season.  This would start in 2022 and is just a proposal that would still need approval.

    The vast majority of the conversation on this thread is about the SBA loan program in the stimulus package. Almost all of the readers of this forum are not going to be eligible since we issue neither 1099s nor maintain a payroll of employees.

    If you are interested in recouping any officiating losses for the spring and/or summer, you are going to have to go through your state's unemployment process, get rejected, and then apply through the  Pandemic Unemployment Assistance which will allow the self employed, independent contractor, or gig workers to seek relief for loss of income. In order to qualify you will need to have claimed income from officiating on previous years' tax returns. If you can qualify, you may also qualify for the additional $600 per week benefit that is included in the legislation.

    I posted a link above that came through NASO and Ump Attire. Each state's unemployment process is different and you will need to navigate the process based on your home state's requirements.

     

    Any update on this? Has anybody been successful in getting unemployment through the PUA? I am still getting mixed messages on whether or not I qualify since I still have my full time job, but lost out on umpire income as an independent contractor.  

    Has anybody gotten the PPP loan?

    Mississippi HS sent out notice yesterday that they would be switching to a program called Dragonfly.  Anyone had any experience on that platform?  Today officials are to receive a link to go in & register as an official. The excerpt below is from the email.

    "The National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) has partnered with DragonFly to create the Center for Official Services (COS); a digital officiating platform for registration, assessments, assignments and payments. MHSAA is also a part of this partnership.  We look forward to this new technology for the betterment of our total program for officials."

    I have never heard of Dragonfly for an official's platform.  In the state of Georgia or maybe just the county I am in we use something called Dragonfly Max for athletes to input their physical, parent permission forms, etc.  Not sure if that would be the same thing or not.  It works well for physicals and forms, but have no clue if it would be good for assignments and scheduling.

    That's my understanding, although I do not have any authoritative source on that yet.  I just went through the process of filing, as it's clear from my state (IN) that I must file to receive PUA under the CARES Act, even though I will be initially declined for UI through my state.  I don't think their systems are quite set up for this scenario, as it had a hard time getting past the fact that I'm filing for UI even though I'm totally unaffected with my primary employer.  

    I do not know yet how I will eventually file for the PUA - at this point, I'm not sure who does! :)

    Thanks.  Keep us updated if you find anything else out.

    Can you apply for the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance as an Independent Contractor even if it is just a side job and you have another job?  Thanks. 

  10. I assume you mean Gerry Davis? They don't allow coupon codes that reduce the price at all for conference merchandise because you already have a "discount" in the conference gear.  I once had a 10% off code that they accepted at first, but then when the charge went through the coupon was taken off because it was conference clothes/hats. I do know at times the code College will get you free shipping and they do allow that code.  

  11. I have a Hardwicks Black Plate Coat size 46R I am interested in gauging offers for.  It is used, but in very good condition.  It just too big for me and I am interested in seeing what offers I could have instead of getting it altered.  Thanks.  Asking $275 shipped or best offer.  Thanks.  Message me and I can send pics via email or text.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was able to get it. I had been planning to buy a plate coat from Out West until how they treated @Razzer  Glad I was able to get this one instead. And a much better price too.
