When you sign up to be an official, you should understand there is a higher standard of behavior for your actions on the field or court. But what about when you are not wearing the uniform?
Like it or not officials are public figures, even at the amateur levels. People will sometimes recognize you as an official when you\'re in public â€" even when you\'re not in uniform. It isn\'t uncommon for coaches and/or others to recognize your face or even your name.
