Majors was reffed by upTon 187 crew also.

To my knowledge we did not have different reffing crews for Saturday Minors from Event 1 to Event 2. Though it is possible (I'd have to look back at my schedule) that I was away on vacation for Event 2.
haha ive been all over the place sorry dave. but it was sunday minors, event 1 and 2. I remember it was gunfighters one event, and a different or mixed squad the second. don't remember who I just remember the reffing styles/decisions/calls were extremely different.

It was always the gunfighters Sunday minors, the only mixes would have been 187 players helping out if we were short bodies.

It was still gun fighters for the second event too. However they might have wen down a few refs that event and we brought in a few backups. Usually 186 guys, but not always.

Just came across this thread now and wanted to post. This is the best league in New England.

1) Good reffing
2) Affordable entry
3) Awesome competition
4) Well organized!
5) Beautiful turfed field
6) Nice big scoreboard
7) Excellent affordable paint
8) Whenever you have an issue to discuss, Dave is always there to respond.....quickly. Either by phone or Email.

I thank Dave, 187 crew, and the rest of the Fox4 staff for working so hard to put on a great series for the players!

Any thoughts on becoming a little stricter with event staff on the field? It might not impact the gameplay on the field, but there are safety implications and it jeopardizes the goodwill of the sport. I would hate for some mom to see a ref on the field with no mask while guys are shooting at the start box waiting for the 10seconds. All we need is that mom to get on her soapbox and hit facebook/twitter/yelp.

As someone who's reffed locally a number of season (NEXL) I'll say that it's just impractical to expect that to not occur. Reffing staff is on that field all day, and they need breaks where they can take their masks off. Players get to do that every point, in the pits. Refs still have work to do on the field in between points, and can't always get off the field to take a breather.

Mask rules are more of a "do as I say, not as I do" kind of thing, and as far as I know, always have been. The refs know what they're doing, and generally so do the players. If I'm on the field with refs who have masks off, I make sure my gun is aimed at the ground, or at least well away from them.

and if I have my mask off on the field, I face away from the players.

btw- I don't want to play in any other league. After playing foXball, I feel spoiled.
