It's taken me 4 years to get over.

Well folks, it's taken me four years to get over a bad call  :'(
But I'm back. CRDL (Canberra, Australia) welcomed me with open arms today and I hope to get skates on soon.

So what did I miss?

Just what was the call that sent you into exile for four years?   :o

Bad calls happen, it doesn't mean anything more than you made a mistake. It does NOT mean you're biased. Maybe I'll write about it in the appropriate section some time.

Hi Pallbearer

You missed... well, new folks' arrival, like mine. Nothing extremely important, so;)
Nice to meet you and to hear you're back.

May I ask about your story ?
I'ld love to know how you handled this, especially since it lasted for years before you found a way back. Some of us had issues with bad calls, and your story can helps :)

Cheers and, again, pleased to meet you.
Seb

If you makes you feel any better, I had a bad call that resulted in police coming out to the game and my getting an escort to my car (soccer, naturally).

To reiterate others, yup bad calls happen. The big trick is to find out why it happened, and how not to do it again. From my situation, I gained a better understanding of when I'm over my head and pre-game preparation.

Vanilla has a good start.

1.  Minors are gone.  Most downgraded to NI/NP, a few upgraded to penalty.
2.  30 second penalties.
3.  One-whistle starts.  The "on their knee" scrum starts have vanished.
4.  Multi-player blocks have been revamped / clarified.
5.  Delay of game penalty category added.
6.  Numerous significant changes in illegal procedures and misconduct penalties.
7.  Partial and completely illegal positioning rules at jam start have been revamped.
8.  Star passes have been overhauled.
9.  A successful official review now allows the team to have a second one in that half.
10.  Numerous changes to the game's standard practices, verbal cues, and hand signals.

There's lots and lots more, but those are ten major changes.  I suspect you're already becoming familiar with the details of them.

Thanks guys, it's good to be around the game again.
I'm studying the current rules and current reff's so I can get back up to spec.
