qualifications for officials


RE: qualifications for officials

LOL!!

RE: qualifications for officials

I am a former official myself and now coach AAU basketball. I saw a situation Friday that I have never seen before. This game was tied with 5 seconds left. Team A was inbounding the ball. I think one or two passes where made with the last one being stolen by team B. The girl who stole the ball appeared to have been fouled but was called for a travel with one tenth of a second on the clock. In frustration turned away from the ref and made some sound (I couldn't make out). The official called a technical on the girl and basically gave the game to team A. If that is the kid of officiating we have in North Carolina then maybe we should just play without them. I know a few of the girls on Team A and they don't feel good about winning a game that way. Utterly poor judgement

RE: qualifications for officials

RedFlame-- I watched this ref in disbelief myself. I'm still trying to figure out why he T'd up the girl with .1 seconds left in a very good game. I suppose he wanted to end it before OT. The worst call I've ever seen !!!!!

Your post describing the physical features of the refs made my day. A flat head does come in handy if you can't find a place to put your beer. Also, I'm having a difficult time visualizing what Italian eyes look like....pepperoni maybe?

RE: qualifications for officials

@ kmagnusson yes italian eyes are a Roger Dangerfield look more round instead of oval and a little poppy!! LOL you can say Pepperoni. Flat head in the face and back of the head. Most people have a little round scoop and ball on the back of their heads, this guy looked as if he had laid on his back to long as a baby and this also looked to be case with the face as well. His forehead was not rounded as the regular sapains, but more flatted like the neanderthals. This is also a sign of intelligence rounded skulls. LOL!!

RE: qualifications for officials

I beginning to see younger refs at the JV levels, who are fair. I watched two young refs call the East Chapel Hill girls and boys JV on Monday 1/7/12. They were fair and the crowd were undercontrol. They walked calmly out the gym. However, I hope this becomes the case at Varsity level games. It's saddening to see the crowd get asked to leave, as in the case with HSH spectators at PSH and HSH game. And refs racing out of the Gym because they know they have made bad calls and are afraid of raging fans attacks. I mean what example are being made for these kids? It seems that PSH are the least favored by Refs. I just would like to see less injuries of players due to bad calls/or no calls of refs, more relaxed crowds, more controlled crowds, more confident players that havn't been stripped of confident due to bad calls that prevent turnovers and points in favor of opposing teams, and the opportunity for all fans to enjoy games that they have payed their money to see. When a ref doesn't have control of a game and make bad calls it creates a foundation that breeds; aggression, injuries, and rivery between teams.

RE: qualifications for officials

Definitely, you get all of the above mentioned results from bad calling. i understand that some mistakes will be make and makeup calls are made. But to continuously manipulate the outcome of games by assisting with wins by calling bad techs and call bad fouls to put the ball in the teams hands that refs wants to win or nevertheless just not calling fouls to enable the refs choosen team to win is absolutely obserd.

I have even seen jump balls be given to one team 3-4 times in a row by refs as the crowd screams "IT'S NOT THEIR BALL REFS!!!" not just one jump ball but 2 or 3 in a row. This is not a typical mistake. Its a bias and favored mistake.

I totally agree that with younger and more fairer refs that it will breed less injuries of players due to bad calls/or no calls of refs, more relaxed and more controlled crowds, more confident players that are not being stripped of their confident due to bad calls that creates turnovers and points in favor of opposing teams, and the opportunity for all fans to enjoy games that they have payed their money to see. When a ref doesn't have control of a game and make bad calls it creates a foundation that breeds; aggression, injuries, and rivery between teams and fans.

Why do you want to do bad and know it then run out of the gym. Who wants to live like that?
