    Do bad calls exist? Of course. 50/50 calls happen tons of time a game...but over the span of a game they tend to even out.

    It's the hardest game to officiate because it's fast, continuous and the athletes are just so outrageous right now. Because it's the hardest, it's also pretty much considered the worst.

    But I don't think it's because of purposeful human choice. It's just human error.
    If it really were the hardest and it wasn't fixed then the NBA wouldn't have guys in their 60s and 70s running up and down the court with those "outrageous athletes." Either that or the NBA just doesn't care at all about the quality of its product so long as they can market it. My money is on the former, because it's David Stern.

    What do you want? 15 refs on the court?

    Nice strawman deflection from the NBA apologist. Your response to having senior citizens refereeing the game with the best athletes (arguable) is that hey, man, what do you want like a whole bunch of them?? No, that's not what I said or what I implied.

    When you have people like Joey Crawford officiating and making himself part of the game, it's a problem. The NBA
