Do you get the impression that the substitute refs aren't getting much respect? They aren't, and their performances also reflect poorly on those responsible for hiring them for jobs they obviously can't handle. Too many games are being made into a mockery, and with the way these guys are losing control of things, somebody may get seriously hurt. Besides, the regular refs deserve more money. The 27 of them combined are pulling down barely 1% of the $70 million that NBA clubs are lavishing on their players. If the league is trying to draw the line on outlandish salaries, it sure has drawn it in a funny place.
In the fond hope that two heads are better than one, we urge you to blow the whistle on this ridiculous lockout.
