    State Championship Officials

    Are they the best from each region each year being rewarded on merit or are they every ref gets a trophy crews?

    It seems to me year after year the Officials are subpar in the State Championship Games.

    Anyone?

    The way I understand it, each association gets to nominate officials to work the finals and they are selected based on those nominations.

    Correct.

    The reality is some of these crews have no business calling state championship games.

    One thing is for sure, nominations are not merit based appointments.

    There were glaring mistakes in the Mayfield/Danville game.

    The interception, catch, out of bounds, incompletion in the end zone comes to mind. Wow, how do you ever come up with a catch for a touchdown on that?

    There is a shortage of officials everywhere. If more people would step up maybe you could drive the good ole’ boys out.

    I have a friend who made the championships games this year and he is a top notch official.

    Sometimes the guy who deserves it does get the call but I hear what you’re saying for sure. I’ve seen it.

    In some cases it definitely is good old boys club vs based on merit. Even deep in playoffs you’ll see the assigner picking his buddies over his best officials to rep his region.

    There actually are photos and some different angle videos on twitter that show that it may very well have been a TD.

    Well the instant replay I watched several times(in slow motion) showed different. I don’t have a dog in the fight. 100% neutral

    Let's keep this thread about the Officials in general and not any individual plays.

    Again, let's stick to the Officials in general.

    If we want to discuss that play someone can start a thread for it.
