One player doesn't speak for the League.

And good the refs sucked, I wanted them to get new ones anyway.

I don't want new refs, they'll only be worse. Our refs weren't bad. Pay them, now, gosh dern it, ahoy.

Yeah, people will say that the refs suck and to let them strike but it will become evident that they are the best available if there is a ref. strike. The inconsistency will be maddening if you have new fresh hire referees.

There are two things I expect out of every Pacers game I go to:
a Pacers win and
a 3 by Reggie

I thought the Amish were the only ones still using looms? Are they going on strike?

I hope we dont strike either. And the refs we have now are fine. New refs would def. be worse.

I know I'm in the minority, but I just can't imagine the replacement refs being that much worse than the regular refs. Maybe 1999 is still just too hazy in my mind (thanks to a certain ref :mad:), but I say give the replacements a chance. This would be a great opportunity to return fair officiating to the league, a problem that continues to be ignored, and is escalating more every year.

I've heard it could be worse than the Paterson Silk Strike of 1913. I wouldn't want to work 4 looms instead of 2, either......

Some of you might be a litle too young to remember the last time they used replacement refs. I think it was in the mid 90's, and I believe they used them for about 6 weeks or so, it was a disaster. Many of you will be begging Dick Bevatta to come back.

Remember the game in NYC when Larry Brown decided to deliver a "message" to the league office to settle with refs? Never have I seen a more blatant example of a professional coach just begging to be ejected. :chuckle: The scrub refs were truly wretched, and that was in the days of Mike Mathis, who made Cyclops ( :dancingbavetta: ) look competent.
