For the protection of the officials, I think it would be a bad idea in many cases. But I'm sure I also see that as a much closer and more case specific than most here.
To take an example, an open letter about the behavior of Coach Knight would have it's merits. Letting officials answer questions about what happened when a coach threw a chair across the court also might. [And for that matter, I feel like I've read an interview with the referees who were there at some point (but perhaps not, or perhaps they waited until they were retired to speak on the matter.)] But on the flip side it would make it harder for Indiana fans to believe that they were being neutrally officiated with Coach Knight there. Or perhaps, and this is what I was trying to get at, that's not the flip side but actually a pro to greater transparency.

IMO, if conferences allow coaches to criticize officials, especially by name, people are always going think that official will never give that coach's team a fair shake in the future.

Are you seriously comparing an Internet message board of officials to a nationally televised press conference?

Please excuse me while I clean up my drink I spit out from laughing.

None of us work their games. Not sure who we talk about other than some public situations and their behavior. But remind me the last time any of have had guys we show on video here. Officials that work those games are not hear talking about those situations we show.

Peace

We do not talk about the coaches and institutions we work ourselves. We'll just say we worked a game somewhere and ... happened.
