There's been a lot of teasing (good-natured, I admit) about some of us having been around in the Naismith era. You are probably familiar with the Gen. McArthur quote that, "Old soldiers never die - they just fade away."

How about suggestions for finishing this thought, "Old referees never die - they just......"

Best answer (as judged by me, of course) gets to pretend he's Dave for a day.

More of a football one, but:

Old refs don't die - they just become replay officials.

old refs never die, they just become coaches and have the best angle on every play.
