Idea for Reffing situation?

Hey I just got done reading DHP (Del's assesment on GPL 3), and I thought up an idea. DHP wrote something like "the 3 or 4 refs dont' have luxury of seeing what 20 people can see on the sidelines, which is true. So why not have a few more refs be "spectators" with refs having walkie talkies, and can talk.

I.e. Snake player has hit on his mask, a spectator ref sees it. Spectator ref walkies it to headref and checks it out. Players eliminated.

It's an idea, just thought of it real fast, Tell me what you think.

Later

because ...being a ref.. by the time this has happened and the head ref is alerted..the player has probably executed some devastating run-through..

However consistency is probably the one thing GPL refs lack but the amazing event GPL is, i expect that'll change

i think it would be a good idea if theres 2 spectator refs on each side of field but there has to be a faster way to call them out because they could wipe

If there was an abundance of refs available, I'm sure they would be better on the field than trying to see through the net. Like any other sport, the refs must be on the field to make a call.

In my experience, I found this to be an effective way to help.

Refs, like teams need to have a reffing game plan. Work as a team. assign reffing sections,.. Simple.


A well reffed game is a game where refs are able to efficiently remove players
without necessarily moving out of their section drastically. Remember, Players
know when they are hit most times whether its bounce or otherwise.
Its their job to leave. Its not the refs job to escort, when that happens refs
are out of place. Stuff happens, yada yada yada. Only in certain circumstances does a ref need to go in.

Playing on deems a penalty. One of the most helpful tactics of penalties is not to simply penalize a team but to make the job easier on the refs.
That whole "well the ref didnt pull my armband yet" malarky doesnt fly with
this trooper. only in certain circumstances does that apply, if your hit your hit period.

The only rule I dont know if I really agree on is the foward motion to a bunker. As long as your not shooting, to me your just trying to get to a safe spot to be checked out. if ok then you shoot. Stopping in mid field like a stooge just because you felt something isnt quite sound in my book unless you got faced, or hit on the gun plainly. Then you might as well alter course and run away.


Yes there is going to be cheating of course. However the point still stands. This way a ref can stay his station for the most part and direct, and only need to really move out to collect armbands from eliminated players. Some players take them off themselves, if thats the case and they are walking back get it later. if its still on and they are too far, get it later. Thats why the rule of players dont come out the box until ref ((HEAD REF PREFERABLY)) signals ok. This eliminates refs scrambling around chasing folk. somebody should always keep watch for attacking players. you usually can tell if an attacking player gets blown up before he reaches his target if your paying attention. If its too close to tell differently pull both.

All in all simply paying attention to both players and your opposite partner and not getting tunnel vision proves an effective reffing game than anything else.

Outside reffing although seemingly helpful puts to much on that ref to have to deal with. Definitely on field. The net kinda plays a "talk to the hand" if you will to wanna be outside refs and biased shoutouts. It allows you to listen discreetly from time to time at your own discretion. Otherwise pay no mind.

but thats my 2 cents.
