RE: Rec, AYSO Under 19

Mourad Tighiouart of Los Angeles, CA United States asks...

This question is a follow up to question 34363

Thank you Joe and Richard, this further clarifies things for me and the importance of point/location of contact with the referee and subtlety on when/why the whistle is used.
