So many monkeys off their backs. That was one of the biggest monkeys that non-mavs fans didn't realize.

That makes it a very sad state of affairs. The man is a menace to the game.

I'll just say this: Joey Crawford is the worst ref in the history of sports.

It's a tie between Violet Palmer and Joey Crawford. The problem is Violet is just overall consistently awful. Crawford can be a decent ref (not very often) but when he gets going he just loses his mind and just starts making stuff up and is quick to T anyone up who disagrees with his delusions.

Even though Violet is always awful,when Joey Crawford gets on a hot streak he can call some of the worst "wtf is going on" fouls i have ever seen in any major sport.I mean even my 2 year old nephew would be surprised by his calls.So Joey Crawford

I was coaching at Century Cage Camp in Youngstown one year and former NBA official Joe Derosa was running a camp for elite up and coming officials. Joe Crawford was there evaluating and I got to pick his brain for about an hour. We talked about dirtiest player (Rodman), foulest mouthed coach (he said Lenny Wilkens which I disagreed) and loudest arena (Utah). This conversation must have been at least 10 years ago, but he use the F-word every other word - and I'm not kidding. It was f -this and f-that. He's a Brooklyn kid who seemed really rough around the edges.

Worst official - and not even close - Kevin Fair. Watch his games. All 10 players and both coaches - ON EVERY ONE OF HIS GAMES - are like, "are you serious?" and "What did you call?" I often wonder how that dude keeps his job. I'm not a big Benny Adams fan either. One final one: Bob Delaney - Former govt worker (CIA or FBI) turned official. HE SUCKS.

Default Re: One Referee that you want FAR away from your team in the playoffs

Violet may have lasted because she's a woman, but she gets hated on because she is a woman as well.

A ref's job is to be ignored, a refs best day is when he/she is never mentioned. It's almost impossible for Violet because shes so noticeably different than the average ref.

I have seen people on this board overreact to her calls, instead of just blaming the refs in general like they do with most if not all the other refs.

I'm not saying shes a great or good ref, I'm not saying she doesn't make horrendous calls sometimes. I am saying that she sometimes gets unfairly criticized and picked on because she is female.
