Too late to call a T but my question is, why wasn't it caught by the official putting the ball into play after the TO?. I always count the number of players to ensure there are only 5 from each team...

I watched the video about 6-7 times. As I watched more intently I "might" have called a T BUT the fact I had to watch it as many tiems as I did before making a determination tells me that I probably...

I did a couple of AAU games over the weekend. First game was 43-0 and the second game was 68-1. Needless to say, these games were not fun to officiate.

I am not even sure why we are talking about injuries here :confused:

The bottom line is that you didn't make it to the game until the second half. You were not there to work a complete game...

You get paid for what you WORK not what you were suppose to work but didn't.

If you were injured in the first half of a game I might see where they would pay you but if you were injured in the...

I am not going to say anything to anyone since I was there as an official, it might be taken as an official talking about it and not a parent. I agree worse has been said - it is just when it is in...

I would have been ashamed to have taken anything for the first game. IMHO you didn't earn anything that game since you put the game/other official in a bind by not being there. There is no way the...

It doesn't bother me as an official as I have heard worse. I guess I would like "our" fans to act a little more respectable than the average fan.

No, it was probably our local paper and given that fact, they may very well have been talking about it. I know that is my opinion of our local paper :p

So should this bother me as a parent?

I called a GV and BV game at my daughter's HS last night. I usually don't call there since she attends (she no longer plays basketball there, only volleyball) but the R got sick at the last minute...

Yea, I wasn't thinking the last second shot think. Still, unless the L is absolutely certain, he doesn't need to make the call as the T should have the best angle on the play. I assume this was a...

Size should not matter if he can keep up with the game; however, sounds like this guy might not be able to. Here, appearance is a big deal. An official dressed like that here would probably get...

The reason I don't support this first year official is because the official wasn't being run over by the coach until hestarted raising his voice. The HC asked, in a mild manner, about the 10 second...

Well I disagree. While my focus is on the floor it takes one quick glance to the bench. I don't do it except near the end of a close game. It does not take my attention off the game
