Make no mistake; officials care about the game as anyone else that’s involved - whether that be a coach, a fan, spectator, and of course the players. For one, we have such a much different margin for error: out of 100 calls, we often like to make 95-97 correct. Of course we like to get 100 correct, that’s not realistic - just like it’s not realistic for a basketball player to have a 80% field goal percentage. We are closer to Steph Curry on the free throw line. Yet, we aren’t treated the same. If a 3 point specialist has 10 attempts, and makes only 1, he’s just having an off night. Referee’s are not afforded the same luxury. Just know, we care just as much.
