Ted Valentine

Honestly...The fact that Ted Valentine is working the national championship game is very embarrassing for the profession. Even if he gets every judgment call and rules interpretation correct, his attitude and demeanor on the court only serve to validate some of the stereotypes officials are often branded with.

I get the impression that Mr. Valentine honestly believes that the entire nation tuned into the game tonight to watch him!!! Grrrrrr!

Embarrassment? You have got to be kidding me. The fact you even said this is an embarrassment to the profession.

Peace

I always wondered when being assertive and confident became a negative.

Me, I think Valentine is the best there is. There's a reason he's the R in the biggest game of the year.

Seemed to me he was the only one willing to blow his whistle tonight

We have had Burr, Higgins and many others that do more of the same that Valentine gets blamed for and Valentine is the embarrassment?

I was wondering the same thing. We are not robots and we are not the same people. If it is not your style, then it is not your style. But Valentine is alright with me and always will be.

Peace

this post is in no way a rip on Mr. Valentine, but did anyone else have trouble hearing his whistle? It sounded much different than the other 2 guys working.

I thought Valentine called an excellent game tonight.
