|10 weeks 4 days ago||This ^^||
I get around to the greater Sarasota/Tampa area all HS season long, and it's just on a different scale. Spring ball is just like college, the sport is year-round, coaching is year-round. We do clinics almost every month, with HS teams as "scrimmage" teams (games with no kicking).
Not to mention it's hard to go outside and work on 7-on-7 drills in hip deep snow.
BTW, Madden 7on7 starts in April for Regionals..Finals at IMG in Sarasota, see you there.

I do High School games in Florida. We have to have a Sherriff deputy on the sidelines at all times we are on the field.
My crew and I were assulted after a spring game...a friggin spring game!
What Florida FHSAA has done is at the high school level if a kid gets kicked out of a game he/she looses the next 6 games (of any sport)..so if the season is over and the guy plays basketball he is suspended for 6 basketball games.
But the youth leagues are BY FAR the worst...there is no governing body with authority. What can they do? Really.
This month's issue of Referee Magazine has a detaied article about the assult that happened in Sarasota last year, if your interested.
FWIW, I work Umpire and Back Judge.
|33 weeks 15 hours ago||Not in FL||
Well, it's not valid in the games my crew works. Usually you have at least 2 if not 3 covering officials in 5 man mechanics and in college they work 7 man so you have 3 to 5 covering officials. Dead ball unsportsman like 15 yards and a first down. Second offense in Florida is removal from the game...an ejection from any game results in an immediate 6 game suspension that can extend into the next year (if you have one). You can appeal but it takes 2 weeks to hear the appeal.
I hear the same meme about holding as well, but this is for a different thread.

He can keep on blocking, legally. It's only an immediate dead ball when the ball carrier looses his lid. For others the play ends then the player leaves for a play.

Are you being sarcastic? The general language used by all participants is abhorrent. The amount of cussing rivals the US Navy.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||Magnus is correct. Team||
Magnus is correct. Team Tampa was just loaded this year and Travis Johnson was eating every defense up.
Were you wearing all Michigan gear? I think I may have seen you wandering around.
Also, who is the Denny McClain look alike that was on the Max Ex sideline for each game?
|46 weeks 2 days ago||Also, last year when Hoke and||
Also, last year when Hoke and company were making the Alumni rounds nation-wide he was listed as a contact for info and I have his stuff saved in my phone...so I called him. He was totally cool about the whole thing.
He also suggested the Mr. singleterry (sp?) is a better contact...FYI.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||I guess so. You know when||
I guess so. You know when you see a catch when the reciever goes over the top and just snatches the ball out of the air or over the defender...what other word can you think of?
Plus I like snatch.

The defense was not good this year. Last year the Max Ex defense kinda dominated.

Why didn't you stop by and say hi? Did you see the Officals tent?

It's mostly about dropped balls and no open receivers. Also looked like a few wrong routes.

Correct. This exactly what is happening.

Correct. Today is seeding day

It's true. Morris is struggling and he has nobody to throw to. Took three sacks in this last game.
|46 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for this list of||
Thanks for this list of players. IMG does a poor job of posting rosters.
|46 weeks 4 days ago||I'll be there starting at||
I'll be there starting at 10:30. I will try to take video of the games I am sitting out. New format this year with more games and all new fields. Should be fun now that tropical storm Debbie has moved out.
|46 weeks 4 days ago||Yes. Free admission. Park||
Yes. Free admission. Park around back by the baseball fields.
|47 weeks 3 hours ago||Magnus, You are correct, the||
You are correct, the 7on7 rules and NHFS rules for PI are the same. I also agree we call less PI's at a 7on7 than a HS game on average. Two reasons, one, the guys are all 4/5 star guys with speed and no pads, this leads to less banging. Second, with 5 recievers and only 3 officials we cannot possibly see everything we need to. A good official will NOT throw on a foul where he did not see the whole thing, hard to do when I have 3 guys at 15+ yards deep and I am on my own.

Maybe in MI but not in FL. Two out of state games.
Laste year only one out of state...
"Scheduling FCA and Skyline means Manatee won’t get a rematch with New Jersey power Don Bosco Prep, which beat the Hurricanes last fall in Bradenton en route being named the nation’s prep football champion by MaxPreps and USA Today."

Wasn't you per se. I asked perhaps stupidly about the mag's ship date, which we still don't have by the way. Then all this shit ... the reason for the alum/Army stuff was I thought incorrectly that posters/users/contributors here would give the benefit of the doubt (until identified as a phony or something) and it was perhaps a lame attempt to ask passively.."why all the hate"?
So, whatever...I did learn one thing..a 47 year old Alum/veteran/middle manager can in no way be cool, hip, funny or otherwise engaging on the internet.
I got flamed last year when I posted about Shane Morris after seeing him in person at the IMG 7on7...so..again, I lost, I'm heading back to reading and never posting.
|47 weeks 1 day ago||Is the release party at UPS?||
Is the release party at UPS? So when you guys show up at the party, your taping boxes and shipping?
Ok Cool, I had no idea it was the shipping party and not an event to celebrate the release, wow, who knew?
I am certain to get flamed...LSA '92, Commanded men in combat (twice), over 3,500 hours in rotor wing and fixed wing aircraft (non-combat), now lead a business division here at the hospital and I have never got this much shit ever, ever! Not even from my gangster, punk-ass privates in my company back in the day.
Next post in 2014, I think...or maybe never, thanks for making an old ass alum welcome in "your" blog.
I wish I was going to the party just to have a chat with you.
|47 weeks 1 day ago||I suppose I am just an asshat||
I suppose I am just an asshat then.
It mentions June 30 as a "Launch Party", where does that post say the mag ships on June 30? June 30 is a SAT, it's shipping on Saturday? AND he mentions a "glitch" and it slipped two weeks...
The other e-mails mention nothing of the ship date.

Why is everyone such a tool? This was my e-mail. On MAY 15th.
Need your info for the sponsor page

Thanks, I never saw the second post you linked there...pretty cool.
I assumed I would get an e-mail or something, but on second thought that might be hard to do with all who funded through Kickstarter.

I need to change my Avatar (sp?)

So I'm bored here at work...wondered what the delivery date is on the Kickstarter project and now EZBud is trying to "McFarlane" or "RDT" me...awesome.
Your just as bored as I am apparently.
|48 weeks 1 day ago||Awesome thanks. I remember||
Awesome thanks. I remember everyone calling them Team Detroit, the Max Ex wasn't even used on the master Tourny board on the second day....the team even broke the huddle with a "Detroit" cheer.
They were by far the most "together" team, very little bickering and sniping with each other...other teams almost had fist fights.
Also, in cool story mode, Chris Wienke is a huge dude..Cam Newton not so much. Wienke is not in playing shape and Newton is but still...big difference.
