New Reality Show: "When Officials Go Overboard"

It's been a problem for years. Certain officials in certain sports who think we pay money to watch them. I get it - it's a hard job, and they have to have a bit of arrogance (or confidence) in their duties and be thick-skinned. Yet a line gets crossed, frequently. And that line was bulldozed this week by (as usual) "Country" Joe West, a fine Major League Baseball umpire, whose patience is even shorter than...believe it or not...yours truly.

West and others get properly skewered here.

Most do a great job (including West, despite his obnoxious ways), but they need to stop being so confrontational and, frankly, giving their profession a bad name.
