As a guideline, if you're CR and up the field, and you see the GK come out and wonder "gee, he might went over the line", then don't call it. But next time you're down in that end and the ball is dead, be sure to mention it to the GK "make sure you and the ball stay in the PA on those punts". Nothing more than this is required. And yes, I am a fan of preventative officiating. On the other hand, if you're upfield and you see the GK come out and you think "Holy Geez, he came right out of the PA!!" then call it - because if you've had that reaction, he must have blown right by the line. When it becomes that apparent, then the GK is deserving of the call. As my non-Amish dad would say, "serves him bloody right". Jim
