Kill the Umpire's Career!

Err, the referee's.

Click here and read about the suspension of NBA referee Joey Crawford. It appears from many accounts that Mr. Crawford had moments where he thought that people actually paid to see the referees in action.

And that has gotten him into serious trouble, most recently for ejecting Spurs' star Tim Duncan and allegedly challenging him to a fight.

Bullies with badges, be they policemen or prosecutors or referees, are a serious problem. It seems like Mr. Crawford, while a technically excellent referee, sometimes has gone over the top, as the article chronicles.

Whether his career has been thrown under the bus remains to be seen.

This is a bizarre story, to say the least.
