Sports officiating; National Basketball Association
It would be difficult to find any activity in sport as futile as criticizing NBA officials. Ever since the arrival of Shaquille O'Neal, complaining about refs has become one of the biggest growth industries in Orlando. Magic fans, sports writers and commentators, radio and TV broadcasters, Magic officials, coaches and players have all been moaning about the Shaq's treatment by the zebras.
