Olympics in China- Ref question

I think the refs are from FIBA right? I don't know if there is an answer for this but I was reading about the protests in Greece today and who knows maybe there could be a boycott. If the refs are from a country that decides to boycott does that also mean they can't go ref in China? More Olympic fireworks too come for sure.

The FIFA refs have a POE this summer: stop the headbutting to an opponent's chest.

I think you mean FIBA.

I think he has shown his level of competence to critique.

FIBA I knew that. I was with Italians and Croatians when that game happened. So much fun.

I think it's much too controversial to have the Olympics in China. They should be moved to Antarctica. Everybody loves penguins.

Don't talk about people's mamas and sisters and this won't happen to you.

Flyer fans don't like Keds, either. What's your point?

The Penguins are in first. The Flyers are in 4th. That is my point.

Gee, I can't wait for the Olympics so we can get the benefit or reading the Southern California guys' critiques of the officials.
