In response - when no one has possession. Then the rule does not apply. We got that called on us. It was frickin' ridiculous. I'm always watching for the 3 second violation. The team we play tomorrow (tonight) has 2 stars, and the rest are filler, I do believe. I think they are weak on rebounding, and luckily we have that going for us. Now we just have to make our shots & the easy lay-ups.

I'm a basketball ref. I hope, for the most part, that I don't suck.

Here's my advice:

Lay off of the charge/blocking calls unless it's patently obvious.

Generally, that's good advice.

Coaches usually only bitch to me for not making enough calls, though. It's amazing how many think a contested shot must be a shooting foul.

Coaches are people, and so, they're going to bitch about whatever you do. Sad fact. Call too many fouls? They'll complain. Not enough? Complaints. Thankless gig, being a ref.

It's been so long ago for me, so I do not recall the content of each episode.....however, you could apply that title to many episodes......glad you're digging it, it's awesome. Even Lord Douche liked it.

Still thankless. The $$$ is not a thank you. Not saying not to do it, you should do as much of it as you can. I did some softball umpiring when I was in college and it was odd to play a few nights a week but ump another.....liked the extra $$$ from it, in top of my retail gig, though.

The thing that impressed me about the episode is that nothing dramatic happened it is just well written.

When I ump: the more a coach yells, the longer I take to make my calls. Boy does that piss them off.
