McKinnely didn’t deserved a playoff game, he made a crucial mistake in the Giants-Redskins game.
Is it possible that the HL on Steratore’s crew is Dana McKenzie. That would make a lot more sense (although sentimentally I wanted Mark Baltz to get it)
You are correct Michael. We made the fix. I misread my own handwriting.
I like Dana, he is a really good guy. Glad to see him get the game.
Good crews all the way around. It looks to me thatPayne, Hussey, Wrolstad, hill, Boston, and P. Paganelli are becoming perennials in CC games.
Mark Baltz deserves a game in cc. Maybe next year Mark
I am happy to see Paul king get a championship assignment. I worked with him as a high school official for many years.
He is knowledgeable and very capable as well as a good rules man.
Have a good game Paul !!
Anyone know the alternates for division final games?
