Agreed on the penalty calls Dan. Even though I tend to leave my whistle silent.... I can try to improve on that.
And regarding helmets, I don't mean old Monday night football, smashing helmet collisions. I meant getting clipped by a helmet which happens all the time when everyone wears helmets and is barely noticed. It is very noticeable if only 1 guy is wearing a helmet. If guys wearing helmets are careful then it should be fine but I think the evolution of sport shows that when more protective gear is widely used then the games get played harder. If anyone disputes that basic fact then I give up.

Well, didn't someone on defense wear a helmet every game last year? There was no judgement for that and no issues. So, who cares, a helmet is a helmet. I for one will be wearing those new crazy, fan-dangled helmets that it looks like someone is eating your face.

And Fitz, for the record, Beer Goggles don't count as mandatory protection.

I have an idea, Dan you should ref this season, just to help the other refs learn how to call everything correct. Can't hurt!
