    I would add a knockoff booklet for JR High bBall kids. How to grab, hold, and pull jerseys when the ref can’t see

    Special one page flyer to slow soccer defenders to teach pulling jerseys and arms when burned by a fast break forward-again while their body blocks the refs view-it makes me think they teach refs that players on breakaways will always trip and fall down by themselves and the defender never did anything. (Something very easy to see from the angle on the sidelines.)

    And if I may -I’d like to admit something about your signature line.

    When I ran the Sales & Marketing department I ALWAYS told my crew, This is me, this is who we are, what you see is what you get. Always pass on bad news (like missed delivery forecast as soon as you know so folks can plan around it.) Don’t guess, say “I don’t know.” And never over promise.

    As for the competitors- keep them guessing. I can remember a couple of fibs - like when ask about our annual sales figures when we were privately held.

    Maybe add in the “open-hand cup check.” I remember EJ perfected it well. Wasn’t that in a March game?

  • @drgnslayr It was against Michigan early in the game. I was there in Dallas and the crowd had zero explanation what had happened. I made a mental note-when I get home check the DVR for anything happening before and there it was. A minute before, Mitch set a high pick near the free throw line. Just as the Michigan guard EJ was defending got to the pick he shoved EJ hard-right into Mitch. His head snapped back in whiplash-the result of a choreographed stunt. EJ tried to get back and got caught.

  • I don’t agree with it, but it sure understand it. If I had my thinking cap on at the time I would have posted it on you tube and sent a copy to ESPN. Something like "if your going to call one cheap shot , call them both.

    Agree on the jr high kids. 🙂
