: Not surprising USA Today article on the shrinking numbers of high school basketball refs. Only two of ten refs return for a third year. Cited are abusive behavior by players, coaches and parents, age and pay. Once the current crop of refs retire, there's no one to replace them. Judging from how tough it is to get coach, it's conceivable that it will be impossible to get a ref in the coming years.

: Okay hotshots! The ones who are always on this board saying how badly the refs suck. Put that whistle around your fat necks and show us how it's done. We will surely grade you after you blow call after call.

That "writer" even puts up photos of referees she feels are bad. Almost a bad girl shaming. Would you want to have that job?
