If teams are "guilty" of using stalling to try and win, their opponents are equally as guilty of...

That's been our (those opposed) contention this whole thread. Stalling happens in an extremely insignificant percentage of games.

I don't think it would hurt the game overall, either. But I firmly...

If you're going to mindlessly attack my avocation, I have every right to defend it. I'm curious who the refs "here" other than AllSports and me are. :rolleyes:

Indeed, fanboys that make blanket statements about officials like the ones you have made are, generally, nuts. Hate to break it to you.

I take it back--stay far away from officiating. We're better off with a shortage.

You're better off in the stands at GCL games.

Disagree on the "coaches" point. I bet no more than 50% of OHSAA coaches are pro-shot clock.

And coaches do have plenty of say in rules/policies. If 90% of the OHSBCA wanted a shot clock I...

And the facts also include that a shot clock is a logistical nightmare, from cost to personnel to the fact that the NFHS doesn't even allow it. No one can dispute that.
