The Most Misunderstood Basketball Rules

I saw this on the post concerning LGP.

"Officials are on the court to be the only unbiased arbiters of the game. Officials are not concerned with who wins or loses, but only fairness and safety. Everyone else in that gym cares about winning, and therefore cannot look at the game objectively. Players commit fouls and violations; officials view those infractions, judge the action, and then apply the rules of the game to what they had viewed. The rules then determine the penalty."

Does this quote only apply to floor officials?

According to all I've read, technically the table crew is supposed to be unbiased as well & are only supposed to be there to assist the floor officials with timing, scoring, & other duties as described in rules/regulations set forth by all governing bodies.
