I read on the internet that Jon Diebler wants to come out of retirement and is trying to get at least a sweet 16 assignment as his first game back. Won't accept anything less than U1.

I read that, too. I heard he was holding out for R money, though.

It's now been changed. He's going to sit in the TV studio and watch all camera angles from all games simultaneously and make the calls from there. the officials at the game will only relay his calls to the scorer / teams / crowd.

after last November how is Jon going to come out retirement? praise be the heavens if he does, we really need him in this time of darkness for all officials.

i remember the day he did an NFL game in the afternoon then an NBA game early evening and a late night D1 mens college game. The only real super official to span multiple sports, a la Deon Sanders and Bo Jackson. I think his best work however was at the head linesman for the 2005 world Curling Championship in Spelunksi, Scandinavia.

You've been fooled by the Jon Diebler publicity machine.

Jon Diebler is no more dead than Elvis is.

Aren't you aware that Tommy is Jon Diebler's illegitimate son?

I thought everyone knew that!

IMO, the posters on this (and similar) threads are kindly telling you that don't give a f*** about the chances of (insert name here) making the final four, or who the "best" ref is, or any similar jock-sniffing type threads.
