Overview

Do you think you have what it takes to be a major college or pro football referee? Well now you can test your knowledge of the game with Wayne Stewart’s You’re the Ref.

You’re the Ref is divided into three exciting sections. “Routine Calls” deals with scenarios and rules which typically come up in games and deals with clear cut rules—out of bounds calls, holding, pass interference. “Basic Situations” deals with matters and rules that are just a bit more unusual or, for the casual fan, more obscure—illegal man downfield, for example, isn't a call you see every game, but it remains a rule that referees and many fans know quite well. In the final section, you can put your knowledge to the test. You’ll be presented with what many football people call “knotty” problems. Here you will be asked questions involving the complex “tuck rule,” the difference between roughing and running into the kicker, and other arcane matters.

Most of the situations in this book come from real games, but some scenarios are made up to illustrate specific points or rules. You’re the Ref is the ultimate test of your refereeing skills and knowledge.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Stewart previously used this approach—an annotated rules quiz book—to explore baseball in You're the Umpire. Now he looks at the rules of pro and college football. The concept works better for baseball for three reasons: the baseball rule book is simpler, baseball rules do not undergo major changes on an annual basis as do those of pro football, and the rules for pro and college football differ pretty significantly. Stewart intersperses his questions about pro and college rules, but that just seems confusing. Better to have separate sections for the two. An interesting concept, but one that will likely become dated more quickly than his baseball work. Likely to appeal to some football fans.

    Like a flickering candle the flame will die.

    Like a flickering candle the flame will die. First betrayal of the worst kind will strike with cold heat. Then prey will lose it's enticing arouma and those who have been preying will be extinguished. Lastly, firesticks will kill all of the rest and kill the flame with it's own kind of fire. Like a flickering candle the flame will die.
