Rulemakers and referees are destroying like a cancer the greatest sport ever conceived and ruining the game watching experience for the fans, as well as the playing experience for the athletes. So, it isn't worry on our part; it's wholly justified disapproval and revilement of officials' incompetence, about which silent acceptance is unnecessary (for players and coaches, though, it IS necessary, to avoid stiff fines)
