I don't like watching organized basketball. High School or College ball is not as bad as the pros. And I figured out why I don't like basketball. It's because the referees are such a big part of the game.
I mean think about the last game you watched - and how many times the game was stopped by the refs. It cannot be denied that they are a huge part of any basketball game. You might say that they are just doing their job - and that may be true - but it makes it far less enjoyable for me. They affect almost every play at the end of a game.
I'd kind of like to see a professional game played like a street game some time. I'm sure that at first it'd be total chaos. But after a while it'd settle down into a more or less reasonable game.
And here's where I make the comparison to government. We have an intrusive government, trying to regulate all aspects of our lives. We have cops only too willing to enforce whatever law they are told to enforce. The job of the cops is, when not to steal money from honest people, to coerce conformity (to paraphrase V for Vendetta).
And I hate our government. But I hate the government for the same reason that I hate the officiating of a basketball game. It's just too much for me. The government should let the people live their lives as they see fit - as long as they are not hurting others. And the refs should let 'em play the game.
