I give them their props for busting their butts for all of us for the tournament. But the lack of staffing (I personally believe) cost us making Sunday. I know most of you will say "your team didn't play well enough to make the cut" or something to that effect. The lack of refs or lack of willingness to get in there and make the call on field 2 cost us 2 matches...the difference of finishing up 3-5(missing the cut by 18pts) or finishing up 5-3(possibly top 5 seed??) I don't hold any 1 ref accountable for the actions or lack thereof on field 2. But I will state I was quite dissappointed. I truely hope NPPL gets it together for D.C. , regardless of how many fields they decide to run...just my .02 cents.
Everyone gets bad calls. Don't put it in the hands of the refs.
I do agree though, the head ref on field 2 didn't even know the rulebook.
Player runs through, bunkers my guy, ref wipes off my player because he said I was shooting him way before he got there. No penalty pulled. I asked him why no penalty was pulled and he said "it was a boom boom play." So I asked if it was a boom boom play, why did you leave my guy in. He said "cause you shot the other guy first." I responded "so that's a penalty...."
