I was wondering this the other day, how much do high school refs make a game? I'm sure it usually depends on the school but I don't have the slightest of clue.

I believe ours make about $65 a game, give or take $10? I used to do some elementary boys and girls games and got $45 for A and B games combined.

Not enough to put up with the constant heckling. Worst thing IMO about HS basketball in Indiana is that you cannot go a single game without someone complaining and yelling at the refs. It seems like no team wins or losses nowadays, it's one team got screwed by the officials or one got shown favoritism.

I don't disagree, but it's not that difficult IMO. Maybe I'm just thick skinned, but I'll take $65 bucks for 2 hours of work any day. Yell, piss, and moan all you want, I won't lose sleep over it. See violation, blow whistle. The end.

That's why I qualify for a great heckler, too. I'd be glad to take your whistle, thanks for asking! Hehe :P

I think you may be qualified for politics too. Posted Image
An official does their job correctly if no one remembers who they are after the game is over.

I haven't seen too many games decided by bad referee calls that often anymore.

Me neither, but people like to use the excuse as a crutch a lot.
