IV. - Never charge a player and above all no pointing your finger and yelling.
V - Hear on the the things you should hear - be deaf to others.
VI - Keep your temper. A decision made in anger is never sound.
VII - Watch your language
VIII - Take pride in your work at all times. Remember, respect for an umpire is created off the field as well as on.
