If this was the case, they need to reexamine whether they are mature enough to officiate HS games. Maybe they need to go back to jr. high or biddy ball. If they did that, maybe they wouldn't need that head start to get down the floor.
    I'm not saying that is what happened...I'm just saying it could be...As for that being unprofessional?? I can tell you that officials will not tolerate their partner or fellow refs being disrespected...They will often "T" up a coach if they make derrogatory comments toward their partner...If they witness it during their game after witnessing it during the game prior to their's they may take any negative comment they hear during their game as a continuation of the disrespect to their profession that they just witnessed...Again, my point being if I do not want to be a "target" I am not going to do ANYTHING that may place a bullseye on my back...

    Sounds like to me that you have been an official before, is this correct? Not on the high school level of course but in Jr. High and in other leagues. Is my uneducated theory correct?

    And Britt certainly has a bullseye on her back, as far as some folks from her former school are concerned. Whatever she gets, she deserves. Right?

    For some reason, I continue to click on this thread everytime I see a new post. I'm not sure why. I wish a mod would close the thread so I wouldn't be tempted.

    By the way, an assistant coach was sitting there in the area around them...

    Now, if I were feeling that the refs were "out to get me", I don't believe I would perpetuate my reputation of being "mouthy" or "disrepectful" to officials if I were wanting things to change...While the refs in the JV game ignored it, it could be possible that the varsity officials watching them work did not appreciate the disrepect of their colleagues and let her know it when she opened her mouth during the varsity game?? Just a thought...

    This is not hearsay...It came directly from one of the participants...

    Good to know that you are so close with the Refs...and so goes on the Theory of conflict of Interest

    Please find in bold the point you are about to read:

    "How should readers determine exactly how mature you are?"

    As the Good Book says, "you reap what you sow".

    I agree with Wireman for the first time ever, this thread does need closed.

    Why is it a conflict of interest if I happen to know referees?? I know probably 70% of the 16th region officials because, to answer your previous question, I used to be a referee in this region and I called all levels including Varsity...I also umpire with one of your administators at Rose Hill...I consider him a friend and if you ask him I am positive that he would tell you that I do my job with the highest degree of professionalism...So before you lump me in with a group of "Britt Bashers", I umpired their games a couple of times last year & can guarantee you I treated every girl with the same high respect I always do...As is my reputation among coaches within the 16th region...I have never wished for her to be unsuccesful...My comments are the same as I would, and did, tell my own kids and the same I tell the kids I have the priviledge to work with now...

    BTW, I personally do not believe in "targeting" players and judge every player on their own merits & solely on what I witness from them, not hearsay...

    We generally agree on everything besides college football. We share alot of the same opinions on basketball!

    Well, now we can all agree that likes2watch's oratory about the "derrogatory" comments during the jv game amount to "much ado about nothing". It would appear, from Devil58's description of what the referee told him that the comments were, in fact, good natured kidding. Only one with an agenda would interpret this in a negative way. In fact, if any other girl basketball player in this area had said these things, they would have been passed off as "cute".

    The fact that so much has been made of this non-incident reveals far, far more about the accusers than it does about the young lady. Although I waste my time in saying so, I must say that you should be ashamed to create controversy where none should exist. If the subject referee was offended by all of this or took it seriously, he/she has no business calling high school games.

    Obviously, like2watch, you have proven only one fact and that fact is that this thread should be closed for being irrelevant.
