More etiquette...

Here is a bit of paintball etiquette that I held back from the etiquette post because I think it deserves its own post.

Do not yell at my refs, "PAINT CHECK THAT PLAYER!".

Refs, for the most part, know what they are doing. They are not necessarily on the field to call people out. They are there to insure integrity. Many times they will hold back to see if players will call themselves out (Remember, we are talking about rec-ball.). They also watch for wiping.

If you feel a player is hit but not calling themselves out my advice is pretty simple. Hit them again. Unless the ref is caught totally off guard or is distracted they will eventually pull the player and have a chat with him or her on the way back to the safe zone.

No, my refs are not perfect. You may run into one that is having a bad day and doesn't have his head totally in the game. Don't yell at them to do their job.

Come see me.
