Basketball officiating and baseball umpiring, I feel is far less consistant, far more 'favorable' towards certain level players, and such. I don't watch enough hockey to compare that officiating, but I'd say NFL officials get the call right about 99% of the time, which is a much better clip than what I see in the NBA, NCAA basketball (by far the worst officials on Earth), and the MLB.
No way in hell they get the call 99% of the time. My biggest pet peeve in football is how they call PI. They are so inconsistent with those calls.
I actually think baseball is pretty good. Once in a while they get a SB or a play at 1st wrong. The bigges thing is balls and strikes, but to me this is what makes baseball unique. Balls and strikes are different depending on the umpire and to me this is what makes baseball a little special.
This is coming from an Angel fan. Doug Eddings is on my sh*t list.
