Agree to Disagree – One of the things coaches and officials must occasionally accept is that they will not see the same play the same way. Officials are to be unbiased, protectors of the integrity of the game. As such, they are to view plays in a consistent and totally impartial view. On the other hand, coaches are inclined to view the action from their team’s perspective, as they should. When this happens, if we all can remember that we may never agree on the judgment call, it can help. Officials, ask the coach what he saw? We may have missed some detail of the play. Coaches, listen to the explanation from the official, you deserve one. Then we have to remember the following: we may never agree on the call; questioning the official’s integrity will not be tolerated; and coaches have a right to vent their frustration (within reason!). We do all love the game, so let’s do our best!
