Penalty video?
« on: July 28, 2011, 06:25:26 pm »
I have a really hard time seeing and calling penalties so ive been watching a LOT of online bouts. I remember when I first started scouring youtube for ref vidoes and not really finding much... I think it would be awesome for a league to get together and make a video of them SHOWING the penalties and refs calling them. Actually performing a back block, etc... for me, as a visual learner, I know it would help a lot! Anyone agree?

Yes, this has been discussed by many but done by few.

In the meantime, you may want start making arrangements to drive up I-90 to visit other, more established leagues' practices and scrimmages. You can volunteer to NSO for them at bouts, and shadow refs during their practices and scrimmages.

The more derby you see from the reffing POV, the faster you may grow as a ref, so get those repetitions in.
You will bout as you practice.

@FZ: unfortunately it is not so easy to me (or us) in Germany. The traveling costs very much expensive therefore you learn just from your own team and your own HR... and you don't know the different style of refereeing which it can be good and less.

I usually watch bouts in archived and try to understand the call... from few of bouts you can recognise the penalty but then you need qualify ref to tell their opinion.
