Who is in charge of the refereeing?

They're doing a horrible job. The most blantant ones are the two out of bounds calls per game when someone is lining up a three and is not even close to being out of bounds.

That and every out of bounds call adjudicated by the female ref.

She had an absolute shocker. Every game I've seen she has made bad decsions after bad decisions. Surely she is a relative of someone high up in basketball because she doesn't deserve a job based on her performances.

She is better than Chris(cheat)Reed,Townsend(mafia)and Matt Beattie.Those three are the worse by far and hope they don't do the playoff.They will only wreck the game by blowing the whistle a hundred times cause they think there the stars of the game.Iwish they will let the players decide the game.

The guy with the slicked back modern hair cut is also a bit of loose cannon from what I've seen

I seriously wonder what the NBL thinks about it's reffing. Like, do they just ignore it? do they not care? do they think its fine? do they not listen to their fans?

Its been a problem all year for every team in every game. It is getting ridiculous now, turning the league into a joke.

It's a thankless job and people should get off their backs, no ref no game. Go and have a talk to most professional players and they will tell you that you get good and bad calls and it works out 50/50. They have to make split second decisions.

A thankless job that they are paid to do, and do to a professional standard... which some aren't and should be criticised for.

Yep bring in referees from the states who earn 10 times more $$$ and only ever referee 1 on 1 plays. They dont referee full court presses, double/triple teams or contact all over the floor. Yep, I look forward to your US imports

So many experts who have never reffd at any level. It's a hard gig and I have reffd at local A grade stuff and the abuse you cop made me quit. The critics here who have never reffd should stfu. Declare your ref stats and criicze to your hearts content by all means. if you have never reffd and basketball game then please don't comment.

You're obviously new to this forum.
Blaming the refs is basically a religion for 6's fans. Usually they start before the game has even commenced.
Only reason it seems less this season is because they are winning.
If somehow they don't win the ring, this place will go into meltdown. The entire front page will consist of threads explaining how they were robbed by the refs.

Hey Perth Willy, keep it in your pants. That female ref in every game I have seen her in is excellent. She doesn't baulk at reversing an incorrect call and above all she doesn't guess her calls. Many of the other refs actually blow the whistle in anticipation before the contact actually hits.

Perth fans have had a long armchair ride with the referees until this season. Get used to it, your in the same boat as the rest of us now.

Who was the ref who called the goaltend at the end of the first half tonight? Would do well in the NBA.

Toni Caldwell - a.k.a. That Female Referee - has been refereeing at this level for ages now, and does a pretty good job IMO

I think Toni is generally solid, but she was very poor on Sunday. Still, everyone has a bad day now and then.
