Alternatives to Reebok Zig Energy Ref

Been a big fan of the Reebok Zig Energy Ref. Looking around, it looks like they may have been discontinued. Is this true, and if so, what have previous users of this shoe switched to? Looking for...

If I were getting overpaid for 3-person, I'd agree with you. But right now I'm getting paid $89/game to miss a lot of stuff and sometimes guess. I'd gladly give up 20% of that fee in exchange for a...

I'm in the "expensive" camp. Let's assume a school hosts 50 combined varsity and JV games in a season. Now take the cost of the shot clock and divide by 50 to get $150/per game. To reduce that...

Nevadaref brings up a good point. The issue is moot if the violation occurs first, at which point the foul (assuming not intentional/flagrant) is ignored.

That said, considering this scenario,...

Foul, then double technical

Thatís what I was thinking. Because the location of the original foul (first part of the false double) really bears no connection to the fact that the ball became dead following a free throw when it...

Good point about had the final FT been successful. Not sure I agree with the arrow spot had it not been, however. If the rebounding that wasnít permitted to occur would have taken place near the...

Yeah, as Iím watching this, I keep thinking, ďthe hell?Ē

POI is a simple concept often overthought in the heat of the moment. But a D1 game? Not a good look.

Fair enough, but on a smaller scale, many inexperienced officials have a tendency to call OOB before the ball is actually OOB. A good example is an air ball that lands just inside the end line, then...

Bothered me that the first player to seek the intertwining of arms was the Purdue player. He peeks back at the MSU player, than reaches his arm down specifically to get it inside his. Did the MSU...

Had a physical, man-to-man varsity boys game on a 94-ft floor this evening. There were two of us. With a shot clock.

Ugh.
