that would be a rub, theres if the paint is pretty thin AND theres no shels on him or id the shell is still alomst complete then hes clean. but if the paint is thick and theres little shell fragments thats a hit.

Usually when that happens you can tell he dove, kneeled, etc, but if you can't it is really a judgement call. If I wasn't sure I would check to see how much paint there was where he dove and how much paint was fired in his direction off the break and judge my call from that.

That's how you're supposed to tell, if it looks like a break (a splat), or does it look like a smear. Good refs can tell the difference between a hit and a smear.


but most refs cant tell the difference between a smear and a wipe


LOL

However, I think that when refs are trained they should be required to watch slide shows of what paint looks like on a person, depending on what it's been through. They should be able to tell if it's a break, a slide, or a wipe.

And then they should have to take a test.

Usually you will see the paint splatter when they get hit. Falling on a paintball would only cause you to get a mark.

the hit would be small not wide also if he landed on it he was most likely sliding and it looked smeard thats what makes turney refs job hard is making those tough calls

If you see it happen (the player rolling over a paintball, rather than getting shot by one), then you should not call the player out. However, if I'm going to even pretend to impartial, objective, and fair, I'd have to call a player out if I saw what looked like a hit. As someone else stated, hopefully you have enough referee coverage, to make a good call. Also, someone else noted that it would look different and you'd be able to tell the difference. I beg to differ with that, only in that I've seen players trying to wipe, and claim it was a smear from leaning on bunker (might've worked if I hadn't actually see the hit break on him as he approached the bunker). The rule I've always lived by is, "when in doubt - call him out". It is, after all, only a game. He will get a chance to play again, I'm very sure. Sometimes bad calls are made, in all levels of all sports. I would rather risk making a bad call (hoping the player would do the honorable thing and walk off without complaint), than to risk allowing someone to do a dishonorable thing.
