  1. I agree with the good and bad officials. I talked to the kid about throwing the ball. He thought he was just throwing the ball to the free kick spot. But it looked bad and a well deserved yellow. The clock was kept by one of the refs. Our coach at practice yesterday talked to the boys about actions and consequences.
  2. That is what I told my son about officials/refs. I told him if he wants to fix that problem, he should try to become a good ref. Next spring when he is 14 I will help him become a soccer ref. thanks for the formation info.
  3. My son is on a U14 team. I am a non-soccer person. I officiate HS/NCAA American Football. I have looked up offside and understand that. The team runs either a 4-2-4 or 2-4-4 (offense-mid-defense) His team scored two early goals. Then it seemed the other team got very pushy. One of our players was being pushed and gave a shoulder. He got called for pushing, then earned a yellow card for throwing the ball in an angry manner. The other team tied the game up before the half. The game was officiated by 2 officials. Second half our goalie was coming out to defend a shot. Dove at the ball before it was kicked. Might have gotten his hands on the ball and then got kicked in the face. The ball trickled out next to the goal. No penalty. Later in the game feet got tangled and a player from each side fell. The other team player got up and chest bumped into our player. Things were getting rough and the other team took a one goal lead. Short on time our team had a run. A kick across the goal and a corner kick coming. The refs call the game. As the players are leaving the field, one of the other team kicks our player in the back of the legs and he goes down. He gets back up and several players were asking/yelling at the officials about it. We get a red card. When leaving the stadium (played on a high school field), I hear one of the opposing players talking about beating the "enemy". I am surprised this game did not end in a fight after the kick in the back. Just needed to vent a little. Our coach is working with the league on the red card and other issues he had during the game.
  4. I want a statistical definition of rampant. What percentage of people have Covid at this time? Why should I be worried about this percentage?
  5. We had it where I was in youth football (4th to 8th grade). They put a player at center because of his size. He quit after 6th grade and played QB for the junior high team. He eventually played QB in the NFL.
  6. How about not having to sign away liability of the pharmaceutical company. If it is safe then stop this requirement.
  7. Looking at CDC data to determine if my teenage son should get vaccinated. 21 per million that age getting covid get hospitalized (CDC stat) 40.6 per million age 12-29 get mycarditis from the vaccine (CDC stat) 67 per million age 12-18 get mycarditis from the vaccine (WSJ article)(CDC stat) That seems to make him more at risk getting the vaccine than not. He has always had severe fevers(100+) from all of the baby/childhood vaccines.
  8. I am amazed at the Japanese panic. They have 126 million people and 850 thousand total cases. That is less 1% of the population over a year and a half. The media there must have the people in a panic. They have also administered over 71 million vaccine doses. Let the games begin.
  9. I am currently a Boy Scout leader. I have to take training in Youth Protection. I require a background check. Requirement on outings are 2 adults and 1 kid or 2 kids and 1 adult in any small area. The only child I can be with one on one is my own. This goes for emails and texts also. We just got back from US Virgin Islands sailing trip. 2 adults and 6 boys. I was a scout growing up and never knowingly came across any wrong doing.
  10. She has choices for the Early Vet program. She will pick between Mizzou and Miss St. She has a little more than a week to make that choice.
  11. Any course suggestions for St Pete Florida for a 15 handicap that has not played for 4 months? thanks
  12. Any good 3-5 mile runs in the St. Pete area?
  13. Have some Google homes and 2 WEMO outlets. Would like to get a new thermostat, but none are available for the custom wiring system that was installed in the house in the late 90's. 2 systems, 3 zones each, and 6 thermostats. I tried to get a general programmable, but none will work on this "Perfect zone" system
  14. We used an AirBnB in Glendale. Not sure if he allowed pets, but the location was nice to reach Bryce as well. The man lived next door and gave us some hikes that were not known by the rangers.
