Saying It

I'll say it: being a referee in high school athletics has to be an awful job.When Alex played basketball in the North Dodge Athletic Club league, there were officials that would referee the game and, as a coach, I understand how difficult being a referee is. It is true even at the level of second through sixth graders playing in a recreational league. I cannot imagine what being a referee at the high school level would be like except to say it would be HELL. In fact, that may be why there is a shortage, as this article pointed out:

My former neighbor was a basketball referee at the high school level when he lived across the street from me. He told me some stories about what he had seen. I don't envy that job in even the tiniest bit.
