Jimmy Conrad on Officiating
With the likes of David Beckham supposedly facing fines, John Carver under investigation and Juan Carlos Osorio being ejected for the way he (allegedly) spoke to a linesman, this may not exactly be the best climate to go composing 1,300 word open letters to the MLS referee contingent. But when the author is Jimmy Conrad, it may actually be the best time because you know that he'll do it in a way that is a) entertaining, b) intelligent and c) won't get him into enough trouble that it's messes with his money.
Anything the begins in the following manner...
"TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, specifically CENTER REFEREES, specifically KEVIN STOTT,"
...is a must read for me. Historically speaking I have never been a fan of Stott so the opportunity to see his 'unique' brand of officiating aired-out in public forum by one of my favorite players is as good as gold. But, like all good reads this one has a surprise ending...which I am not about to spoil.
