I recently had someone in my office ask what is the best thing I have ever heard a fan come up with and what are some of the common things that we hear on a nightly basis. Lets hear some of the good stuff.

I am trying to think of the best I have heard, I will post mine later.

"Let 'em play!"

"Call it both ways!"

"Three-seconds!" ...."1...2...3..." "C'mon!"

"He/She never touched him/her!"

"He/She was straight up!"

"Hey Ref....look at the foul count!"

Here's one of my favorites..... "You HOMER!"

Geez....how many more do you want? Someone's probably retired with the money on a book of these "one-liners" he/she published.

Come Ref, does your whistle not have a pea?!


This one makes me laugh, cause I just wanna say "Nope, next question."

"Stevie Wonder could have seen that foul." I truly LOVE the references to blind people. I chuckle inside every time.

yeh, the blind thing really makes me laugh also.

At the beginning of the season a few years ago, I made a call early in the game and a fan hollered out that I had all off season to study the rules and still didn't know them.

Was the first time I heard that, so I enjoyed.

Where is Padget, he must have some good stuff.

What are some of the new and different things that you hear besides just the normal stuff. I like people to be original if they are going to insult me.

How about: (fan refering to a near travel)
"Hey ref, one more step and she would have been in the parking lot!"

I've seen better calls from a phone booth.

(to a really heavy ref): Move around, you're tilting the court.

First game, huh?

There's always a "go back to Footlocker". One of my all time favorites was a coach who told me after a no call, "I haven't seen a block like that since I watched Gallery (as in Nick Gallery, formerly a lineman for Iowa, now with the Raiders) on Saturaday. I took my whistle out and we both laughed at that one.

I had to laugh at this fan who wanted a 3 seconds call;
"He's been in there his whole life".

I've posted this before but off the tip, fast break for layup, obvious hack foul and a fan says; "call it both ways ref". Looked at the clock and it said 7:57 left in the quarter.

Fan has been hollering for 3 second call all game. I hear from him "17 ... 18 ... 19"

Since he was in the the first row I respond so he can hear "Dang, you made me lose my count! Now I have to start over."

Love the Dads watching out for their little girls when you call a foul,

"She didn't mean to", "she's the smallest kid on the court",

I got a kick out of one fan the other night when I called a double technical foul, "Call it both ways". Had to laugh at that one. When co-official and I met after reporting DF, he told me I needed to quit calling such a one sided game. We both laughed at that one.

"Hey Zebra, There's a good game going on, too bad you're missing it"

"Hey Ref! Time to go back to the optometrist and get a new prescription"

"My mother took less time to squirt me out than (insert player number here) has been in the paint"

"What's the matter ref. did (insert opposing team or coach here) cut you and this is the only way you can be a part of the team?"
