I don't even understand why fans of small market NBA teams even bother.

You can't really compare the MLB umpire with the other sports. Baseball is a slow game, and they have five officials on the field, who all know where to look for any given play. And there is a ton of wiggle room given to them, because the human error aspect is part of the game.

Except for that jackass Doug Eddings and the 2005 ALCS. Pierzynski swung, strike three, Paul caught the ball cleanly, yet Pierzynski isn't out?! **** you Doug Eddings.

From Worst to Non-Worst:

NBA-->NFL-->NHL-->MLB

Anyone not saying the NBA has the worst refs of the 4 major sports clearly doesn't watch playoff/important game basketball.

FIFA is by far the most corrupt governing body of any sport. A large part of it is their dealings in the developing world.

As bad as NHL refs have been this year, the NBA is in a class of suckitude all by itself. There seems to be a conscious attempt in the NBA to manipulate games. The NHL's poor officiating seems to stem more from incompetence than anything else.

Referees shouldn't have a direct impact on the outcome of a game. If they screwed up, they should get over it and move on (speaking as a guy whose job has been reffing minor-league hockey the last 4 years).

all officals are liars , cheaters and ******** while they can't truly screw teams over because they can't control every aspect of the game they screw teams as much as possible both in the amateur and professional ranks. If their is anyone on here that has been any officals that says i'm wrong you are lying

When I think about it, there aren't that many cases of real corruption the NHL. Off the top of my head I can think of the Gretzky betting scandal, the Auger/Burrows, and the thing with Collin Campbell trying to get his son favourable calls. Im sure there are more, but that's all I got right now.

The NBA and its not even close. The players could probably do a better job reffing the games themselves calling fouls. Its an absolute joke in that league because the refs favor the stars even when they clearly commit a foul, or are not fouled but cry for one

Also, the technical fouls they hand out is ridiculous. You can't even shrug your shoulders anymore because the refs take offense to it and will give you a tech. Its nuts, and its why the playoffs are so controversial

NBA. They actually had it erupt into a scandal. To the best of my knowledge that hasn't happened in the NHL or MLB

MLB umpires are pretty bad though but NBA are the worst. We're talking rigged games here.

Obviously NBA

Lack of video replay has made MLB umps look horrible in years past, the Detroit Tigers' perfect game being negated on the 27th batter was probably the worst sports officiating call in the past decade at least.

NHL is bad too! Remember if you go on the Leafs board all the baby fans say the refs that ref their games are the worst EVER out of all the pro sports. They can call cheesy PP's that decide the games, an example being Sens/Rangers game 6 where Rangers got all the calls to win 3-2
