Ref's and training

In all fairness most games are called fairly, however every now and then you get a REF who either has issues with a coach or the team is one of his family favs or his son or daughter played on the team and the coach is his friend, (you get the meaning)
So then the game is not called fairly, as in the game today on field 2 at Cherry Island. The Ref would warn the green team and talk to them however for the same exact thing he would yellow card the other team.
That is not how a REF should call a game, if he cannot call it fairly then maybe he should be removed from the CENTER..
The green team kicked the ball out of bounds and almost to the snack bar and the REF said green team do not go get that ball and he took the ball from the goalie from the yellow team so the very next kick the goalie from that other team had to go and chase that ball since the REF told the green team not to go and get the ball that they kicked out.. (not making since, so who was going to get that ball? we did after a few mins, however the REF should have never of did that, since the yellow team had to chase every ball that was kicked out and the REF never told them not to go and get it like he did the green team)
Then in the middle of a good play(ball going good and moving down the line, yellow team has the advantage) the REF blows his whistle and yells at two boys that did not even have the ball or was even in the line of play? Then he took the advantage away from the YELLOW team and made them do a drop ball?
This game was not called fairly, however it is to late now and thanks to the REF who took the greens side the BOYS were almost at blows with each other... the Green teams COACH refused to shake the yellow teams hands and once again due to a POOR CENTER REF a game was not called fairly....
It makes you wonder if the game was called fairly would the green team of had the advantage? I do not think so.
The Ref was critized by both sides for his not being fair to both teams and that he did a poor job and should be ashamed of himself, he said THANK you and kept walking,
it was also getting dark so in all fairness to all players the game should of not be played on unless there were lights...
At this point it really does not matter who won or not that is not what this posting is about..
REf's are trained and recertified each year and the Ref Coordinators are at each game and are supposed to be watching the REF's as the Center to see what more training they need.
Each game is different and has to be called consistnatly.

Still no response from Bryan from channel 10 news

Well I guess I will not be getting a response from them(channel 10 news) however that is ok I still have the email he sent to me explaining on why they could not mention San Juan Soccer making history on their station..(excuses, excuses)

However I am doing other things to make sure that soccer team and all other teams get noticed.

It is not fair not to mention all high school sports on the news it only take less then 30 seconds to mention teams.. I am not asking for a HIGHLIGHT SHOW like they do with high school football....(makes ya think huh?)

So as you can see there is a banner floating all over the internet and also on blogs.

football Survey...

Friday, November 9, 2007

I emailed Bryan and Ryan of Channel 10 News

Ok I emailed channel 10 news asking them to mention that SJHS made history and since they highlight football they should also highlight soccer games..

I did recieve a reply back , however I cant post it here until I get Bryan's permission.. I did inform him that he could come here a make a comment on why this can't be we will wait a see. I also asked his permission to post his response...waiting on that also..

The way I see it is if your going to mention or take time out to highlight one high school sport then be fair and do it for all the sports or do not do it at ALL.

I am on a mission to make sure that these boys get acknowledged for this...My GOODNESS they made HISTORY!

I am also waiting on the other local stations to reply back... also the Mayor of Citrus Heights...

I will keep everyone updated.. however I will not post any responses unless I have permission of the person who is responding. That is only fair.
