Recently I read a thread which had a parody letter from the head of FIFA. In that letter was an item that said your whistle should match your jersey color. hahaha or so I thought. I recently worked a Varsity HS game with a well known (regionally anyways) NRC. We wore red and his whistle was red. Coincidence I thought. This week I saw him at another game, wearing yellow and.... yep, his whistle was yellow. I have a yellow whistle clipped to a black whistle for one reason only, I've dropped my whistle before and wanted to make damn certain that if it ever happened again, I could see it quickly (I can't stand wrist lanyards). Are upper level assessors really looking to see if your whistle matches your jersey or is this just a fashion trend?
