    call out plays

    What does the following in red mean?

    Like a football quarterback or a point guard on the basketball court, a soccer midfielder watches the game as it unfolds and calls out plays.

    Thank you.

    It means that the midfielder tells the other players what play to run.

    Unpakwon, please quote your source.

    Re: call out plays

    I provided the source of my quotes a while ago. They are from <<Leading the Life You Want>> by Stewart D. Friedman. It's talking about the skills for integrating work and life, and providing the six models that embody those skills well. Julie Foudy, the soccer star, is one of them. I will quote from this book for the time being. When the book I read is changed, I'll provide you the new source if you want.
    By the way, do I have to quote my source whenever I have a question?

    Yes, please. You can just copy and paste 'Leading the Life You Want' by Stewart D Friedman.

    It only takes a few seconds.

    Yes, unpakwon, every time you quote someone else's writing, you must quote the source.

    OK. I didn't know this is a kind of rule or courtesy.

    Re: call out plays

    It's about copyright, and it also helps us understand the source so we know if it was written 200 years ago, by a non-native, etc.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: call out plays

    In addition, you can't expect us to remember a source you gave many posts ago. Just think how many hundreds of posts we read every day. I can't speak for the other users, but I don't remember individual posters' usernames or assume that they are quoting from the same book in all their posts.
