Referees on the Phone During Games Is a (Bad Bad) Thing

The referee community is under scrutiny these days after a pair of botched calls in the Detroit Lions-Dallas Cowboys game.

Well, what you’re about to see won’t exactly make the zebras look any better.

Get a load of the ref working this basketball game between North Whidbey Middle School and Oak Harbor Middle School in Oak Harbor, Washington. He’s taken multi-tasking to the next level by calling the game while also chatting on his phone. Nothing like showing these tots a ton of respect, huh?

Amazingly, he’s not the only referee seduced by technology. Check out these other ones who’ve taken calls while on the job.
