    I have been at the State Tournament all week and I can't help notice all of the travel and charge calls. I would say that 60% of those calls should not been made. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Yeeeeessssss!!!! I made a post about this as well. Apparently this decision was handed down from the T$$AA head of officials, was told this directly by a former official who has worked the state tourney, & championship Saturday we won't see these calls as much. It's effected every single game. It's been beyond frustrating to watch.

    I should have searched before I started a new thread. However, I'm not saying this to be mean, but sometimes I wander if the game is to fast for some officials, especially the travelling calls.  How many times do they call traveling as the player is about to make a move to the basket from either side of the wings. The charges have been crazy. It appears that a player only has to graze the defender as they are going to their side to be called. It has been frustrating to watch.

    I agree with the speed. Refs from East TN are 1000% not use to the speed of a Memphis East and such. But this has been infuriating to watch. They have made sure to become part of the equation of the outcome of the games. And I have no affiliation with any school either.
