“Players officiating in their own tournament”Part 2

We got so much feedback from last month’s show,

that we bring the topic back on this month’s show to hear more comments.

IWFFA encourages players to officiate in  tournaments they play in competitively. Then when a player’s team is not playing, she can officiate in the tournament.

Players officiating their own tournament

13 May

When the IWFFA introduced flag football to the Scandinavians, back in the 90’s, there were no flag football teams, coaches, even american tackle football

was not so popular and so the women had to play, coach and officiate themselves.

The players themsevles officiating was excellent – The outcome was fantastic!

The Scandinavian tournaments have always incorporated their own players officiating the tournament games when their team is not competing

USA players may think of this as an unfair advantage.

However, actualy, players officiating their own games  changed the flavor of the sport games and teams camaraderie

Their games are friendly, competitive and never once was there an unfair advantage our call which teams protested due to unfair advantage

The IWFFA offers our members – officiating clinics – for free – in order to create better players, high quality officials

and the IWFFA allows players to officiate in tournaments they are competing in as players .

It this controversial? 
What are the Advantages
What are the Disadvantages

I have been away from reporting on women’s tackle football for a very long time.  I first started WFB Talk (Women’s Football Talk) in November, 2006.  The WPFL (Women’s Professional Football League) and NWFA (National Women’s Football Association) were still around.  First with the blog and then the internet radio site, Blogtalkradio, where we did a live broadcast show every Sunday throughout the year, not just the season, but the whole year.  I stopped in 2012 with the show, doing my show WFB Talk, that is.  I still upload shows for the IWFFA (International Women’s Flag Football Association) on the WFB Talk site though.  Oscar Lopez, of Gridiron Beauties helped host the show for me during 2012 and then when I finally left he created his show, which is #1 in reporting women’s football.  WFB Talk had four co-hosts.  There was Beebe, Meg, Robin and myself.  Our very first show was nine years ago  on the “History of Women’s Tackle Football”.  Over the years we had many wonderful guests and great interviews.


The reason to why I am bringing this up is that I want to return back to reporting on women’s tackle football.  Start from scratch and earn my way back.  I will be starting a new show using a pseudonym rather than my actual name and I will be handling only one league.  I’ve been away much too long to jump with both feet in.

I write this publicly because I don’t want you to think that I am deceiving you, but rather trying to work my way back into the game.

Hope to see you “Over-the-air-waves”.
