About The Book

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.
