We need to have patience... eventually it'll catch up to the need.
I disagree. The problem wouldn't be so widespread, I think, if at least half the refs were fine.
A major problem is that refs don't call every infraction they see - even when they see it, they also decide whether they're going to call it. This is the biggest problem with the league, and has little to do with how hard the officiating is. It's a hardwired habit handed down to the new refs by the veterans. I don't think we can break that without a major overhaul to go with it.
