So, another season of indoor has come and gone. Improvements were made, the tournaments I was at had a higher playing standard than last year. At one such event, I was on the periphery of a conversation with three ccoaches who had decided to take the idea of using indoor to work on team deficiencies… Glad to see you read this column!
The one thing that was disheartening, however, was the level of abuse, vitriol and commentary towards the umpires.
At this point I should point out that I wasn’t perfect. As a player I have been carded for dissent, as a coach I have suffered the same fate. A few TD’s have had to calm me down and threaten me with removal over the years.
