I can’t believe I forgot to post this. A while back, during the peak of the replacement ref extravaganza, I wrote a short story about the future of officiating called “The Last Call.”
I had recently starting working as a football official in Virginia, so I had all this material to work with. One the one hand, I was trying to address a lot of the issues surrounding precision and blown calls. On the other hand, I was trying to have a little fun. It’s about a thousand words, so it’s a short, short story. But I hope you enjoy it. Here it is.
