New "Special"Look" trailer. Looks like it shows Tony's arrival back on Earth and his reunion with Pepper.

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my post about something that "doesn't matter." I appreciate your input.

I agree youth sports are instructional which is why when I have a ref tell me that they won't make a call because the game will take too long, I have a problem with it. How are the youth players supposed to learn what is and is not allowed if the calls are not being made?

Correct, and I completely agree with this concept. My mentality is, as long as an advantage is not gained from the foul then it can go uncalled if the refs decides so. With my complaint above, the fouls were occurring at the center of the court in which the other team was able to gain possession of the ball and make a breakaway to the other end.

Why is my attitude off base?

No, I do not expect officials to be perfect, but I do expect to make calls correctly when they see them. I was not abusing them. I questioned why the call was not made, and when I was told that the game would take too long, I continued to question.

I know things get missed. I mess up, everyone does. I don't see every mistake that my players make. But if you see it and ignore it like this incident then you don't deserve to be in the position at all.

I'm coaching my daughters Metro basketball team this year, and I have coached her traveling softball team and soccer team. There are definitely some great refs out there, but then there are some that should not be out there.

My most recent experience with a bad ref (OHSAA) was we were playing a team that wanted to jump the point guard at midcourt, but when they would do this, they would body check them which knocked them off balance. I asked the ref to make this call and she said she would address it after the 1st quarter. At the end of the 1st quarter, she went to each bench and said that it would not be allowed moving forward. Next quarter, same thing, and guess what she never made the call. Best part is when I questioned her, her exact statement to me was "I can't call that foul because the game would take too long." I was astounded by that statement. She admitted that it was a foul, but she wouldn't call it because it would make us be there too long. I have the book, there was a total of 6 fouls called in the game, 5 against my team and 1 against there team. Maybe if she would make the foul call, the other team would stop doing it and she would never have to make the call again. 

Our next game, we had probably the best refs that I have experienced in youth basketball. They called fouls properly on both teams, and would also instruct the girls why the call were made and how they should play moving forward. This made the game extremely clean and fast paced. I thanked them after the game.

Like others have stated refs need to be held accountable and there is very little that actually does this.

There was definitely a loud segment of fans not supporting Haskins and saying Tate should play over him. 

Haskins had a clutch win over TTUN while Tate has garbage time throws against unequal competition. Tate deserves a chance to compete to win the job but nothing more than that.

Pretty certain like Stx said, because he was already on the staff, it is considered an internal higher and it doesn't have to go to the public. This happens a lot within public schools. A job is posted internally for a certain period of time, and if someone within the school would like to change positions to that position then it never actually makes it to the public.
