    Which Pro-Sport is Officiating Is the Worst?

    In watching the NBA Playoffs, the officiating seems worse than in previous years, especially when calls are making sportscenter and now that several games had game changing calls late in these games. It also seems that the star players get the benefit of the doubt, and although I know better, it appears that the officials want Miami in.

    In which pro-sport do you think the officiating has too much impact on game outcome?

    whatever sport is going on right now and is in the media.

    Right now it is NBA, soon it will be NFL.

    Also, I dont think its worse now than it has been, the game is faster, the reason we see it more is more cameras, more coverage, bigger names getting calls not going their way ect.

    I seem to remember several questionable calls during the NFL season last year that affected some games.

    I'm gonna go MLB, not only do they blow calls frequently, but the other umps can't even help them get it right if they don't ask them to.

    Re: Which Pro-Sport is Officiating Is the Worst?

    I think the calls are worse in the NBA, the amount of flopping that got called as fouls in last night's Spurs- Thunder game was incredible. San Antonio gets some pretty good home cooking. Miami gets a lot of driving to the hoop and falling down after the fact calls *looks at Dwayne Wade*.

    The MLB umps think they are a part of the action though, some of those guys think they have the right to decide how games are finished and frequently try to upstage the actual game.

    NBA. The home court advantage for officiating sickening.

    NBA for sure, but it is just the nature of the sport. I don't really think their refs are worse or anything like that.

    Pro cycling has the worst "officiating" in any sport ever conceived.


    There can be only one.

    NBA is the answer but your stars get the benefit of the doubt statement seems to contradict what happened in game 4 of the Boston/Miami series. That was the worst officiated game (for both sides, so I guess in that respect it was good) I've seen in this postseason.

    At least the NBA allows officials to use instant replay in some situations to try to get calls right.

    Did you mean doping?


    I think the NBA is the most inconsistent of all the sports so I think it is the worst. I think there is at least some consistency in the other sports but refs still do make bad calls.
