In the interest of keeping redundant forum posts to a minimum, I'm starting this one where we can post everything refbitch worthy.
I'm watching the Memphis-CSUN game (it just went to half time), and it's been pretty remarkable: these calls and non-calls are so egregious you'd assume that the refs had an agenda/were crooked. But when you realize that one moment it's a missed 3-hop-travel call on Memphis and the next moment it's a missed forearm-to-the-face on CSUN, it dawns on you: these guys are too incompetent to be crooked.
I honestly think that these guys are hired for the tournament on some b.s., handshaking, it's-who-you-know basis. Most high school referees are far more competent, so we know it's not a meritocracy.
I'm sure I'll repost here nearly every round.
