The union that represents NBA referees is removing several features from its Web site and changing the Internet address after complaints from the league. The National Basketball Referees Association is removing the Rules and Ask-A-Ref portions of the site. "The NBA felt that its referees should not publicly comment on, or offer interpretations of, the league's playing rules, and asked us to stop doing so," union spokesman Lamell McMorris said. "In the interest of getting along, we agreed."
What possible reason could there be for this?
