Thats a pretty good video.

Can I share my Pregame?

For my AR.

Offside is your major responsibility, be there and be aware of recent law changes, do you want to talk about them or have questions? I would rather you be a touch late and correct than early and wrong. If I do wave you down, don't take it personally something may have changed at last seccond and keeper is still better with ball in hand than on ground.

Endline, please be there when needed. You have the best set of eyes and angle on the ball for in/out of play and ball in out of goal. Be there when it counts, save your gas if its gonna be a long day, IF its a long obvious blast over the end line.

Fouls, lets make eyecontact first then go togeher whistle and flag up together if we can.

Throw in. You watch the feet I have the hands.  Remember, they can stand on the touchline, that's ok, but they need to have both feet on or outside the touchline at the moment the ball is released and breaks the plane of the playing field for the throw to be legal.

Space. On Free kicks, and throws please try to be PRO active and get defenders to move back before requested. use your voice. IF requested and in your quadrant please mark off the space then let me know you are ready tell them to wait for My Signal.

Subs. Have them at the half line prior to signal. Overhead then drop it and hide it for me, unfurl and thumbs up when completed.  AR 2 please mirror request and completion.

Time. AR 1 leave watch running, AR2 moniter time wasted, advise on time added.

Any questions for me???

What am I missing?
