You're right on the first part. People usually
call people out on hits if they don't call themselves out.
My post was mainly in response to Todd's post on how much cheating goes on nowadays and how we don't really look at it negatively. It was a suggestion as a possible solution. I didn't say it was the best solution.
I'm not saying I want to pay more for reffing (just that I would if necessary). If people want more experienced refs at the tournaments, It's gotta come out of someone's pocket- Usually ours through tourney fees.
When I work at Pendleton on the airball field all day I don't just sit there and call the games. I practice at even tourney style reffing. (sans penalties)
I don't care if I get shot in the process. If a lot of other people did this I think it would make for better refs at the tournaments. Just like paintball players, you become a better ref with more time at it on the field as long as you have the drive.
That's just my 2 cents
