Allowing lunatic “coaches” (I use the term lightly for street ball) to call the shots because they paid money is a disservice to the teams that conduct themselves appropriately.Good to see. I understand the TD's reason for wanting to keep them in the tournament but that is one of those things where it crosses your mind but realize that it will only hurt you in the long run.
I ran a local rec league for 5 years. There was a very big difference in the ability of some of the refs but I was happy with them all and supported them. Running that league taught me how valuable the officials are to having a successful league.
