This is the most annoying thing. It ticks me off when I hear a coach say "well the ref we had the last game didn't call that" or "the ref we had last time didn't care that her undershirt wasn't the right color". Just call the game the way the rules are written.

attribution theory

Attribution theory: the imparting of characteristics to a person just because they are in a certain position [of authority] despite the fact that said person does not possess those attributes.

I have had so-called "state level officials" tell me in a close game: "let's not foul out A1 because that is the best player on their team"

To which I respond: "if A1 fouls their self out, then that's what they do"

*Maybe this is why I have not been selected to officiate state tournaments?

Sometimes the best response is no response. Veteran "state" officials often have the ears of the powers-that-be. If you don't agree with what they are saying, apply camp etiquette by nodding your head as the words pass through one ear and out the other.

My mouth has been far more harmful to my career than anything I've done on the court.
