   " THE GRAPEVINE & THE BACK DOOR REF "

IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE OFFICIATING BUSINESS
FOR SOME TIME NOW YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT OFFICIALS GRAPEVINE AND THOSE BACK DOOR REFS. YOU KNOW, THE PEOPLE THAT KEEP BULL PATTIES GOING ON. FIRST THE GRAPEVINE, THIS IS MOUTH ALL MIGHTY TONGUE EVERLASTING ALWAYS HAS SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY
WITH A NEGATIVE FLAVOR. THIS SAME PERSON WILL WALK RIGHT UP TO YOU AND WANT TO SHAKE YOUR HAND AS IF HE OR SHE IS YOUR GOOD FRIEND, THEN TAKE TWO STEPS AND PUSH A DAGGER STRAIGHT IN YOUR VERTEBRAE, DO YOU KNOW ANOTHER NAME FOR THIS TYPE OF PERSON??
ALWAYS SMILING IN YOUR FACE, ALWAYS TRYING TO MAKE SMALL TALK WITH YOU, AND GUESS WHAT? THAT SMALL TALK! GETS TWISTED LIKE A PRETZEL.
KEEP THIS IN MIND, IF YOU RIDE THE GRAPEVINE IT WILL COST YOU SOME "GREEN STAMPS" DOWN THE LINE SOME WHERE SOONER OR LATER. NOW, THE BACKDOOR REF. THIS PERSON IS FIRST CUZZ'IN TO THAT GRAPEVINE RIDER.
WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS, HE OR SHE IS COVERT
MOVING AROUND AND KEEPING BULLS&*% UP IN THE DARK, NEVER COMES IN THE FRONT DOOR,
ALWAYS ASKING QUESTIONS AND SOMETIMES QUESTIONS THAT MAKE YOU SAY WHAT'S ON HIS OR HER MIND. YOU HAVE TO PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO EVERYONE IN THE ROOM. IF YOU DO THIS YOU CAN SPOT THIS PERSON. HINT:
STANDS WITH IN EAR SHOT OF OTHERS CONVERSATIONS, ACTS LIKE THEIR NOT TRYING TO HEAR YOUR CONVERSATION BY LOOKING AWAY OR MAYBE FAKE LIKE THEIR READING SOMETHING.
THIS PERSON HAS SKILLS COVERT SKILLS LIKE THAT SONIC EAR, REMEMBER THAT EAR THE 6 MILLION DOLLAR MAN HAD. " DON'T SLEEP "
ANOTHER WAY TO SPOT THESE TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE IS TO LOOK THEM IN THEIR EYES AS THEIR TRYING TO HAVE CONVERSATION WITH YOU.
THAT EYE TO EYE CONTACT STARTS THAT GREY MATTER SPINNING IN THEIR HEADS AND THEY WILL BRAKE OFF THE CONVERSATION WITH THE QUICKNESS. BECAUSE THE LONGER THEY TALK THE SOONER YOU WILL START SMELLING BULLSH$%.

                " LET'S RUN "

GETTING READY FOR THE UP COMING BASKETBALL SEASON. SOME PEOPLE AROUND TOWN WILL HAVE SOME SCRIMMAGES, SOME WILL HAVE LEAGUES AND OTHER'S PRE-SEASON TOURNAMENTS.


ARE YOU READY FOR YOUR FIRST GOOD BIT OF INFORMATION ? CLEAR THE GREY MATTER SO THIS INFORMATION CAN FLOW PASS SHORT TERM MEMORY TO LONG TERM MEMORY. WHEN SOMEONE CALLS YOU TO WORK A SCRIMMAGE, A LEAGUE OR A PRE-SEASON TOURNAMENT USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO WORK ON THINGS THAT HELP GET ONE READY FOR THE UP COMING BASKETBALL SEASON. THINGS LIKE MECHANICS, FLOOR MOVEMENT, BODY MOVEMENT. ASK YOURSELF IS THIS THE BEST POSITION TO SEE THE PLAY FROM START TO FINISH, CAN I SEE EVERYTHING THAT'S GOING ON IN MY PRIMARY AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY ? IF WORKING FROM THE TRAIL OR CENTER POSITION, IS THIS THE BEST POSITION TO HELP WITH STRONG OR WEAKSIDE REBOUNDS ? JUST TO TOUCH ON A FEW THINGS ABOUT FLOOR MOVEMENT. NEXT,BODY MOVEMENT!HOW DOES MY BODY LOOK ON THE FLOOR ? IS MY BODY SENDING A POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE SIGNAL. REMEMBER THIS, PERCEPTION IS EVERYTHING UNTIL YOU CAN DEMONSTRATE THE ABILITY TO GET UP AND DOWN THE FLOOR. NEXT, HOW DOES MY BODY LOOK ONCE I BLOW MY WHISTLE AND ALL EYES ARE ON ME. DO I LOOK PHYSICALLY FIT OR ?? WE WILL COME BACK TO THIS LATER.

CHECK THIS,YOU CAN USE THIS PRE-SEASON BASKETBALL FOR ALOT OF REASONS, ONE BEING TO GET IN SHAPE. IF THEIR PAYING $10.00 DOLLARS OR $20.00 DOLLARS PUT IN SOME WORK. REMEMBER YOU NEVER KNOW WHO'S WATCHING. " TO BE CONTINUED " YOU CAN EXHALE NOW. :-).


PART # 2 BACK TO BEING PHYSICALLY FIT. PICK A NUMBER 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 WHO KNOW'S HOW MANY OFFICIALS GET SOME CARDIO AND / OR WEIGHT WORK IN BEFORE THE SEASON STARTS. AS AN OFFICIAL WATCH HOW MANY OFFICIALS WAIT UNTIL THEIR FIRST BASKETBALL GAME TO START RUNNING. FOOD FOR THOUGHT, COACHES ARE WORKING THEIR PLAYERS OUT FOR HOURS AND HOURS, RUNNING AND MORE RUNNING. POINT BEING IF YOU'RE NOT IN GOOD PHYSICAL CONDITION YOU CAN'T KEEP UP, BE IN POSITION TO SEE THE PLAY FROM START TO FINISH. IF YOU'RE OUT OF BREATHE, SUCKING AIR YOUR CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS ARE NOW FOCUSED ON THAT NEXT BREATHE OF AIR YOUR BRAIN AND BODY NEEDS, NOT ON STAYING FOCUS ON THE PLAY FROM START TO FINISH. IT HAS BEEN PROVEN THAT POOR PHYSICAL CONDITIONING IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS FOR MENTAL MISTAKES AND POOR JUDGEMENT. PART # 3 IS COMING MAYBE.

          PART # 3

DEALING WITH, HANDLING OR WORKING WITH A COACH DURING A BASKETBALL GAME. AS OFFICIALS WE LIKE TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF COACH OR COACHES WERE GOING TO BE DEALING WITH DURING A GAME. IF YOU HAVE BEEN AROUND THIS TOWN FOR SOME YEARS MOST HAVE AN IDEAL ABOUT MOST OF THE COACHES. IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE A COACH LET ME GIVE YOU A FEW TIPS ON HOW I WORK WITH COACHES. UNTIL YOU WORK A GAME OR GAMES FOR THIS COACH HE CAN ONLY GO BY WHAT HE SEES OR WHAT OTHER COACHES HAS TO SAY ABOUT YOU. THE SAME IS TRUE FOR US OFFICIALS. FIRST WE HAVE TO BE PROFESSIONAL AT ALL TIMES, COACHES ARE ALWAYS CHECKING US OUT, DURING THE SEASON AS WELL AS OUT OF SEASON AS IN SUMMER AAU,FALL LEAGUES AND SO ON. THEIR KEEPING MENTAL NOTES ABOUT US. MOST COACHES FLIP THE SWITCH ONCE THE TOSS GOES UP. THE SAME IS TRUE FOR SOME OFFICIALS. FOR REASONS UNKNOWN 3/4'S OF ALL COACHES THINK THAT OFFICIALS CHEAT, MOST DON'T CHEAT THEY JUST DON'T KNOW. YOU HAVE SEVERAL TYPES OF COACHES, THE SCREAMER, THE ALWAYS HAVE A QUESTION, THE STOMPER & THE COACH.

FIRST THE SCREAMER, THIS IS A COACH THAT SCREAMS AND HOLLERS AT OFFICIALS ABOUT EVERYTHING, FROM HIS TOE IS ON THE LINE TO THAT GUY JUMPED OVER MY KIDS BACK DOWN THERE, PLUS HE'S YELLING AT YOU TELLING YOU WHAT YOU GOT TO CALL. AS AN OFFICIAL THIS TYPE OF COACH HAS TO BE ADDRESSED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. YOU WILL HEAR SOME OFFICIALS SAY I JUST IGNORE THEM, I DON'T PAY THEN ANY ATTENTION. IF YOU CAN STAND HEARING A GROWN MAN BERATE YOU "YOUR THE GREATEST"
    A PROFESSIONAL OFFICIAL WOULD CORRECT THIS PROBLEM IN THE GAME HE'S WORKING AS SOON AS OPPORTUNITY PERMITS, WALK OVER TO THE COACH
LOOK STRAIGHT THROUGH THE COACHE'S EYES DEEP DOWN TO HIS OR HER SOUL AND WITH AS FEW WORDS AS POSSIBLE LET THE COACH KNOW THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. IF THEY CONTINUES HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS "T"
THE SAME IS TRUE FOR ANY COACH THAT'S MAKING A TRAVESTY OF THE GAME. ONCE COACHE'S KNOW YOU WILL HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS WORKING THE GAME IS BLUE BELL. PART # 4 WILL TURN ON ANOTHER LIGHT IN YOUR GREY MATTER. MAYBE!

                PART # 4

THE GREY MATTER IS DARK. I CAN'T START PART # 4 UNTIL I SEE SOME LIGHT INSIDE THERE.

I can see some light in there. Let's run.
If you have been lucky enough to work a few tournaments or maybe some contract games have you notice anything odd? When I say odd I mean with your crew 2 or 3 person. I have notice many odd things going on in games I have worked as well as games I have watched from the stands. If you have been reading some of this information and taking notes,
Go back to the welcome page and click on GUESTBOOK, write down some of the odd things you have notice in your games or games you have watched from the stands. By the way I have 2 new guest that will place some of their thoughts on this page also. My 2 guest have a long backround in basketball and are well respected in the basketball world.
So,hit the guestbook and let's get started.
As soon as we get some odd situations from some of our fellow officials we will continue. STAY TUNE !!! LET'S RIDE.

                               " NEW ON THE SET "

Check this new person on the set. If someone calls you for the first time to work an event
it's always a good thing to get to your assignment early as in 15 to 20 minutes.
New person, don't act like your doing the scheduling person a favor, Remember he or she
called you to put green stamps in your pockets. In some cases you may get a call back,
meaning an opportunity to work more events if you have skillz. Always keep this on your
brain, It's not about the few green stamps that comes along with working a few games,It's
about the "BIG PICTURE" coming back year after year after year. When you do get the call,
make dam sure your game is on point. Don't come to the gym with a shirt that has a pocket on the front or a collar, don't put air in the whistle and it's a whistle with a pea! Place a fox 40 in your mouth it helps you the ref.
If you come to the gym for the first time as in being scheduled by someone new check out the
landscape. Let me break this down, see how everyone else is working on the same page.
Don't come to the gym telling people this is how I do it. If that's the case enjoy your
few hours of fame get your few green stamps and ride out on that same nag you came on.
As for becoming apart of the posse, your nag is to small to run with the studs and stallions. THE POSSE WILL STOP BY BOOTHILL AND PLACE A FOX 40 ON YOUR TOMBSTONE!
