The Gray Fox Response to the Referee Shortage
It's becoming a numbers game. And albeit its a worrisome one, we can and should use it to our advantage. With so many games and not nearly enough quality officials, why work for club programs and pay-less assignors that lowball your rates and do not have your back when an issue arises? Officials should be united towards common interests like improving working conditions and better pay. A better work environment will then attract more prospects and our numbers will go back to where shortages are no longer a problem.
