    As bad as the NBA officials are, I’m going to NFL. To be fair though, it’s probably the toughest sport to officiate

    Football by far. My reason is simple, most penalties are subjective, and many times a bad call or a missed call change the outcome of a game.

    Of course in Baseball, balls and strikes are not only subjective, but the strike zone is ill defined as each plate ump has his own standards.

    One pitch too outside called a strike, puts the batter at a serous disadvantage. Too many close pitches called balls, puts the pitcher at a serious disadvantage too. Best to let a computer decide, and tell the plate up in real time if its a ball or a strike.

    I Agree about baseball using computers for balls and strikes. The technology is now good enough that 3-d strike zones show the path of the ball through the strike zone. The computer could issue a 'beep' in the umpire's earphone for a strike. We've all seen important games lost on a bad strike call. A team was eliminated from the college world series this year on a clear 3rd strike called a ball.
