Ha, we are parents before fans. (and a test for everyone)

Saying the same thing that you would say to their face, but louder. I make mistakes all the time. I miss stuff that is off the ball. And trust me when, by the time you are yelling, I am often already unhappy with not hitting the whistle.

But remember, how much do you want some Food Channel watching lady who has never stepped into a commercial kitchen to telling you how to cook? Those tickets coming of the MICROS printer saying "Sirloin a la plancha. SPECIAL NOTE: Make it vegetarian." or the "Well done Steak Tartare."

Make sure you know what your talking about because most of the time the fans do not. Their are players and coaches that earn respect quickly, and over time with officials. The curly hair U18 Skyline midfielder comes to mind. If he goes down, I pretty much assume he has been tagged hard and I missed it. Others may jog by and quietly mention "#10 is holding me all the time off the ball." If they have earned it by playing through, they get the benefit of the doubt.

That said, take the linked offside test. Who got the 100% result expected by the fans?
