Why shouldn't we check the toestops?

As The Fabulous Jessticular Fortitude says, not required equipment. So why shouldn't we do it optionally, anyway?

Well, a reminder to check wheels and toestops is often sufficient for skaters to go check them on their own. I have also seen skaters thrown off balance as refs start pawing at other's skates, and have heard stories from multiple leagues about skaters actually falling because of an overly vigorous toestop check.
You will bout as you practice.

This.  And, some skaters just don't want some strange dude (or dudette) touching their feet.  Also, just because I have on stripes doesn't mean I know anything more about your skates than you do.  We do have a couple of refs who are expert skaters and skate geeks who have offered to check any skater's skates during warmups or half time if they so request.
