''A home referee is a referee that is either partial to the home team or a referee who interprets the rules the same way as the home coach interprets them. Since the University of Pittsburgh coach and several of the players were from Puerto Rico, they preferred to play physical which was the international style of play at that time. (Pitt had a great player by the name of Butch Silva who played on the Puerto Rico National team, and he emailed me the other day saying that the articles on WPP brought back fond memories of his playing days at Pitt. He lives in the Atlanta area and wants to get back into playing on a Master’s Team and coaching polo again. If you are interested in having Butch help your team then contact me and I will send him your email address.) Slippery Rock College on the other hand had a smaller, faster team, and wanted to play with less physical play and a quicker whistle which was the NCAA style of play at that time.''

No caso das modelos, vejo também a possibilidade de se usar "home judge".
