Must be pretty brutal on refs then. Having them fly coast to coast in a couple of days? I wonder how much flying is involved during the playoffs for them?

 

During the regular season too.. Oh god.



Yup. It is a hard job. Mentally and physically. And getting constantly 'abused' by players and fans must feel like shit. But they do seem to make a lot of money though. Quick google search results show entry level at 150K$ and going up to 550K$.

What I would give for that job...

Paid six figures to ref a professional sports league?

Man. I went about picking careers totally wrong

Yup. And you are mostly off from July to October. You get paid extra for playoff games which really become spread out after first round. So from May to mid June you get to decompress slowly, have full summer off with only professional obligation being staying in good physical shape and condition. Regular season and first round of playoffs are probably hell though, constant travel, different city every time, away from family, friends, home. Not easy but man, that whole summer off with that kind of budget sounds like well worth it and fun.

And honestly with what they're paid, you can eventually retire at your late 30s and hopefully move into an office/management role with a team..

Steve Kerr Says He's Worried Patrick Beverly Will Get Whiplash From Flopping
APR 25, 2019 10:48 PM


Steve Kerr discussed Patrick Beverly's flop that lead to Draymond Green receiving a technical foul in the 3rd quarter of the Golden State Warriors' game 5 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

"I didn't think it was a good call. You know Beverley's going to flop, and Draymond turned. It looked like Tyson punched him in the face. Beverley's good at that. His head literally snaps back. I worry he's going to get whiplash on some of these flops. But he's good at it. And the refs, they're oftentimes partial to the little guy who's down there," said Kerr.

Kerr then went on to praise the competitive nature of Beverly.

"You've got to know what you're up against when you play against Beverley. He's a competitor. That's how he's made his money in this league. That's how he's been able to stick around -- because he competes, and he makes you uncomfortable. He scraps. He goes after loose balls. I love that guy. He's a helluva competitor. He's a helluva player. I think every coach would like to have a guy like him on the team. You have to understand when you're playing against him that you have to match that edge. That's what we didn't do last night."
