The NBA Finals were on last night (Congrats to Golden State). In a game of consequence, with incredibly skilled and agile athletes competing for their sport’s highest honor, I just could not stand to watch all the incorrect calls by the referees. Neither could the announcers. After just a few minutes, I became disinterested and started doing some household chores. But I left the TV on and could hear the announcers reviewing and critiquing each subsequent call by the refs.
When the TV announcers are spending that much time critiquing the calls and discussing what an influence on the outcome the referee’s have become, it is time for the NBA to fix the problem.
