Worst officiating pro league? (NHL/NBA/MLB)

When it comes to officiating, this year has been horrible for the NHL. So many horrid calls everywhere, even more so than previous years. Even with that, we should count our lucky stars we don't have NBA refs or MLB umps. All NBA officials to is give preferential treatment to superstars and rig games up the ass, while MLB umps hold grudges and have such inconsistent strike zones, it's not even funny. To me the NBA is the worst, but as NHL fans, we should thank our lucky stars we have it as good as we do when it comes to officiating in comparison to other NA pro leagues, how little it may show.

NBA refs decide games. It's been proven that they fix games. This shouldn't even be a debate

NBA. Without a doubt.





Though, the NFL does have some calls that make me want to punch puppies

Honestly I think NHL refs suck the least out of all of them.

I don't watch American football, but I think NHL refs are pretty good for the most part (I don't expect many to agree with me here).

NBA.

MLB Umps have the least controversial calls to make, little to no discretion/POV influence.

Without a doubt NBA.

Although I will say that the NFL refs missing two of the most blatant holding calls ever in the dying seconds of the Superbowl this year was pretty bad. The league should be embarrassed that they missed such blatant calls during the two most important plays of the game.

They also have to have the best vision. And home plate umpires can be very controversial. See this vid.

IIRC, one of their officials went to prison for it.

Well, you could say that the NBA refs do their job extremely well then.

That's horrible but as a ballplayer an aspect of your game is the ability to 'learn the ump' and his strikezone. He wasn't calling some strikes or some balls, either.

He's consistent.

I think FIFA is pretty corrupt, but the NBA is the worst of the ones you listed.

Only 50% of the players. And it changes who those 50% are every call you make.

NHL refs probably "miss" the most calls. They let the most interference and obstruction go.

But they aren't the worst in terms of getting the most # of calls wrong, they just miss a lot.
