Oh so difficult (2)

We’ve had a lot of reaction on the previous clip about a tricky situation and it’s really cool to see everybody giving their opinion on it. Thanks to the amazing Sam Subby we’ve found another one that we’d like to share with you. If you have some clips yourself that you’d like to be discussed amongst followers of this community please feal free to hit us at info@officiatingscool.nl with a link or a wetransfer message so we can put it online here. The following clip will most certainly cause some debate too: Offensive or defensive and why?

Oh so difficult

Sometimes players are really giving us a hard time. And I’m not even talking about verbal disagreement or such things. But more like the situation in the clip. Where is turmoil starting? Who is responsible? What to do in a situation like this?? Don’t really know what I would call in this situation, but very much looking forward to your calls and reasoning behind them.

Unsportsmanlike fouls: C1

The key to recognizing plays in your own games, is probably having seen stuff before. That’s why we always try to be helpful by showing clips and invite you to talk things over with your refereefriends or online. This one is from the worldcup from last summer and as many clipped by Sam Subby. Lots of players immediately react with the U foul signal, while at first the refs seem to call a normal foul. With the help of IRS they decide to upgrade to U foul. Lees “Unsportsmanlike fouls: C1” verder

Normal or U foul?

Did it go in or…..?
Time for a little refresh on the matter of U-fouls. We know the rules have changed not that long ago, but sometimes we’re still searching for the right moment to make the right signal. As an example the game I did last weekend where I called a foul and I remember I was thinking: might be a U foul. Luckily my collegue assisted on the play and had the right view to make the right signal. I do have a tape of the game, so I might upload it later, but for now there’s a worlcup clip waiting (thank you Sam Subby!). So we’d really like to know: Would you call a U foul or a normal foul? (or even something else?)

Charge/block chapter…..

We have a feeling that charge/block situations will continue to be a trigger for discussions as long as we’ll live. So no danger in promising it won’t be the last clip we’ll show you, thanks to our hero Sam Subby. This one is from worldcup, and as a bonus question for people that do know (or are learning) 3po mechanics: Who has the better look on it? Lead or trail? Lees “Charge/block chapter…..” verder
