Thumbs down The Officials In And 1 Games

I have worked those games before and you are told prior to the games what to call and what not to call. Your basicly just picking up a check. Those games are entertainment and what we call violations are entertainment to the And 1 fans!

No, they aren't ruining the reputation of officials. This is simply a street version of organized basketball. It is nothing like HS or college basketball in the US.

Are you sure you're not just watching NBA tapes?

I think it's not easy to be one of the officals in the AND1 game because if i see something that i know i most call i will call it.
i can't ignore for example if i see some player kick the ball like in football game.. i will give him in the same sec' a nice T foul..

Cool The Officials In And 1 Games

Officiating is one craft where you must be adaptable, I don't care what league at what level you may work. If your supervisor tells you to call this and pass on that,you will do so if you want to continue to work that league. Sure And 1 games are not for everyone, but it may be for some. The bottom line is: When in Rome, you do what the Romans do!

No, they are not. There just amateur officials that are contracted to do the games.

How many assigners have told you NOT to call travelling, palming, double-dribbles, taunting, swinging on the rim, etc, etc.

AND1 games are simply entertainment, like the Trotters, and are usually officiated that way.
