Schools pick and choose what purchases are important enough for them and which ones they cry "poor" on. Shiny new scoreboard? "Hell yeah!" Pay the refs a little more? "We don't have room in the...

Clearly the shorts thing wasn't called the same state wide... had a lot of officials enforcing it around our area.

More times then not when I replay block/charge calls on film in slo-no defenders are either sliding laterally under the ball handler or as you said sliding forward under the ball handler. And yes I...

I would guess 75% of charges called by HS refs are actually blocking fouls. I think the charge is way over-called.
And you would be wrong. If anything, a block is the "default" call too many times....

I had no clue this is how officials get scheduled in high school. Makes the all-out rugby and wrestling games you see in the GCL make sense. The coaches are requesting refs that allow this type of...

Biggest issue with high school game right now is not lack of shot clock or 3 point line. It is the grabbing, pushing and rugby stuff that refs allow that takes the skill out of the game. First...

Not necessarily on the assigners as they work for the leagues and if they want to keep their jobs, they do what the schools (coaches) want.
Kinda my point. Kowtowing to coaches is a conflict of...

3) Refs can't let basketball turn into rugby. Alot of games have turned into this. It's not basketball.

1. I’ve always said the high school 3 pt shot was a long foul shot rewarded into 3 points. That’s a joke. 2. Move the line back 6-8 inches so only the best can make a real 3. Third point....

The OHSAA is not going to adopt a new 3-point line unless the NFHS does. And this is unlikely because (1) it isn't necessary and, (2) you guessed it, it would require schools, rec centers, etc. to...

Not really.

Articles from that blog should honestly be banned from Yappi. A disgrace to journalism. I haven't read one credible thing from that source.

Then again I reckon that's why it's a "blog."
