and working Chicago Open and World Cup +5 years other reffing, but, who's paying attention to experience any more, right?

Knowledge as an "e-thug" worth -$0.02 please take your unwanted opinions on value elsewhere. Doesn't say anywhere which rule book was used at the event.

Before this gets a tiny bit silly are we forgetting the point that this is a game..... not some exact science and all we can do as refs is give a honest translation of how we understand/interpret the rules during a live game in a fair manner.

All refs have "heard" shots and I must have heard thousands and when I do I check the player and if I see any paint that I believe could have been left from what "heard" he would be gone.
If I failed to find any he would still be a live player and I would let him continue.

Are we now saying that bouncers also count as valid hits...... because if it does not leave any paint that is what it is....... Maybe

Ok hearing the shot hit the hopper and calling the player out is bs. Plain and simple he didnt see it and he even stated that according to the orignal post. if he had seen the painball break then fine it would have been more justified. but he dint so end of story he was wrong. Now the one for one thing was really bs and i feel that that was more of a power trip than anything. obvisouly the player saw no paint on his hopper and thought he was still good.

Hearing a hit isnt enough to pull a player.
Unless your like rainman status and can hear the difference between a bounce and a break.
