3 Stars 2017 Week 34


  1. Joy Neville Rugby Referee
  2. Sarah Wilson FieldHockey Umpire
  3. Pete Morelli NFL Football Referee

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 34 in 2017. Maybe you agree and maybe you don’t, but read on below to find out why they were chosen. They were selected from posts that were added somewhere on the Officials101 website in the last 7 days. Stay tuned next week to find out who are the most notable referees, umpires and sports officials in the world today.


3rd Star


NFL Football Referee, Pete Morelli had a pretty weird call to make this week when the Broncos played the 49ers. There were 5 separate players who all got a penalty on the same play and Morelli had to stop himself from laughing out loud at the absurdity. I, on the other hand, have no constraints to laughing at the situation and had a pretty good chuckle. A good chuckle always makes it to the shortlist of stars of the week. 3rd Star, Pete Morelli, NFL Football Referee.



2nd Star


Sarah Wilson is a FieldHockey Umpire from Scotland. Wilson is one of the top umpires in the game today and has worked a number of top international matches including a very strong 2016 Olympic tournament in Rio de Janeiro. This week she has been awarded the European Hockey Federation Women’s Final between Belgium and the Netherlands, being held in Amsterdam. Sarah Wilson, FieldHockey Umpire, gets 2nd Star this week.



1st Star


Joy Neville, Rugby Referee, has been awarded the Women’s Rugby World Cup Final being played in Belfast, Ireland. The match, between the New Zealand Black Ferns and the England Roses, is a huge achievement for the former player turned referee. With such a strong team of officials at the elite level of rugby, this assignment is not an easy one to come by. Joy Neville, Rugby Referee, is the 1st Star for Week 34.

3 Stars 2017 Week 30

 


  1. John Wright FieldHockey Umpire
  2. Roel van Eert FieldHockey Umpire
  3. George Sosnak Baseball Umpire

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 30 in 2017. Maybe you agree and maybe you don’t, but read on below to find out why they were chosen. They were selected from posts that were added somewhere on the Officials101 website in the last 7 days. Stay tuned next week to find out who are the most notable referees, umpires and sports officials in the world today.


3rd Star


George Sosnak was a Baseball Umpire. He lived from 1922 to 1992 and has left an amazing legacy of Folk Art that is unlike anything else ever seen. In a fashion similar to baseball cards, Sosnak would draw pictures of players and their stats on baseballs. It is estimated that he drew on somewhere between 800 and 3000 baseballs and that many of his creations will never see the marketplace as they are proudly displayed in family collections of the players depicted. For sharing this amazing talent and the history of the game, George Sosnak, Baseball Umpire, is 3rd Star for the week.



2nd Star


Roel van Eert is one of 2 retiring FieldHockey Umpires posted by 101 this week. After a 14 year international career that included 84 matches, van Eert worked his final game with Fanneke Alkemade who is one of the top female umpires in world today. Watch the FIH video as Roel shares some of his favourite highlights at World Cups and Olympic Games. Roel van Eert, FieldHockey Umpire, is the 2nd Star this week.




1st Star


John Wright is the other retiring FieldHockey Umpire for the week. After a 22 year career and over 200 matches, Wright has reached legendary status amongst his fellow umpires. The 5 Olympic Games and 4 World Cups he appeared in may have something to do with that. Wright was in the middle for the 2016 Olympic Gold Medal game in Rio de Janeiro, his second gold appearance. A true leader in the sport of fieldhockey, he will surely be missed by many. John Wright, FieldHockey Umpire, is the 1st Star for Week 30.

3 Stars 2017 Week 29


  1. Dan Bellino MLB Baseball Umpire
  2. Jono Bredin Rugby Referee
  3. Michelle Joubert FieldHockey Umpire

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 29 in 2017. Maybe you agree and maybe you don’t, but read on below to find out why they were chosen. They were selected from posts that were added somewhere on the Officials101 website in the last 7 days. Stay tuned next week to find out who are the most notable referees, umpires and sports officials in the world today.


3rd Star


Michelle Joubert is an international Fieldhockey Umpire extraordinaire. After a long history at the pinnacle of her profession, Joubert took charge of the 2016 Women’s Olympic Gold Medal match in Rio de Janeiro. Her passion for the sport and knowledge of the game are legendary and it is great to see her hanging out with the future stars and inspiring new dreams. We have a page dedicated to Michelle Joubert here at 101 so you can read up on her later if you like. For sharing her love of the game with those ho count the most, Michelle Joubert is 3rd Star for the week.



2nd Star


Jono Bredin, Rugby Referee that was also once one of the top international Netball Umpires in the world. It created a bit of a stir a couple of years ago, when Bredin announced he was retiring from Netball to focus his attentions on becoming a Rugby Referee. As you can see in this post, things are progressing nicely. For leading the way and showing sports officials that their skills are transferable, and for having the drive and determination to prove it, Jono Bredin, Rugby Referee, Netball Umpire, is 2nd Star.



1st Star


Dan Bellino is an MLB Baseball Umpire. Or is he? A lot of speculation about his true identity after this post was made. Whether it is Bat signals in the sky or Umpire signals on the field, every once in a while a post comes along that is just fun. When that happens, we let you know. For giving me the smile of the week, Batman, er, uh, Dan Bellino, MLB Baseball Umpire, gets the 1st Star.

There are times when sports officials are faced with little problems outside the standard whistleblowing and decision making.
