Gotta love the summer leagues/camps where I'm telling players to give me a spin so I can see their numbers.

Just wait till they start throwing ads on refs. They do it in soccer.

Oh man, I-495 and 395 are parking lots from 7AM-9AM and 3PM-7PM. And the metro? If it isn't on fire, they've shut down lines for service. Next year from May-September (read December), they are...

Buddy of mine runs AAU tournaments. He used that website once, never again he says. Got a bunch of refs who had no idea what they were doing, or were lazy and let the games hit the fan.

Will people accept being only a minor-league referee? Will the G-League pay enough to keep people from going to the NCAA? Hell, what does a G-League ref make now? Is it per game or is it salary?
