HGI, you do love to rant, but little intelligent comes out.
If you actually read what I posted was GOING FORWARD the AV process would Change. As for a course, it would be easy to coble something together over a couple of weeknights. Just mirror the PAL safety course. As for running it, it would take about 4 hours.
Now in order to implement this, we would as a community need to develop a common standard. Brian, and I am sure others in other local areas already have some courses running.
First of the course would be of little to no cost.
I take safety very seriously. I even make sure to bring a fully stocked first aid kit onto the field.
If you actually have a PAL card, you will know that it is much more difficult to get real steel. Just applying and taking the course does not mean you will actually be granted a PAL card. Considering the reference and background checks.
A kid with a car, cannot damage our sport. A kid or adult with a toy bb gun can.
As for voting, that made even less sense than the kid with car comment.
Just think of it this way, would you rather have new players given the chance before a game to learn the rules, procedures and best practices in an organized format.
Would you rather bitch, whine and moan about that fucking noob over there.
