have been thinking about this since we started this section. i think it would be a valuable aide for both new refs and old ones that weren't exactly sure about them.
what i'm typing about is reffing hand signals used during games. i'd like to make a closed sticky with photographs of refs using these hand signals with maybe a short explanation of what the signal means below or above it.
the ultimate depiction in the photographs would be; someone in a ref vest or jersey giving the specific hand(s) signal. for more realism, adding this ref next to a bunker with a player next to them in whatever position they might be in when this call was made would be an ultimatum but not exactly necessary. do best with what you have available. of course to portray safety, we'd want masks on
all photographed subjects. i would like full length shots(head to toe) of the ref and player(if included) but not necessarily a full shot of the bunker they're standing next to.
i'm not asking for photo's from just one person. even if you see a hand signal shot posted by another member, feel free to add another of the same signal to this thread and we'll post the best of the bunch in the sticky.
to keep loading time of the thread to a minimum, please try to keep the photo's in a relative 700x700 max format. post them here with a short explanation and i'll add them to the sticky when i make the final version. if you need software to size down pics to 700x700, you can get free software named Easy Thumbnails 3.0 (Freeware) at http://www.fookes.com/
but it would be a lot easier if you just took the pic in that dpi size.
i don't have any type of reward to give for your assistance but, i will guaranty that your photo will be in a closed sticky for as long as this section and PbN are on the web. i will also post the name of the person who provided the photograph(s). the only other reward i could offer is the fact that you will have helped thousands of refs per year that will dwell in this section now and in the future.
if there are any additional things i may have left out, i'm open to suggestions. any assistance you could provide in this quest would be greatly appreciated.
