Good! Maybe we can get some knowledgable and normal people into the officiating ranks. It seems like every official I come in contact with has a screw loose and/or isn't very up on the rules.
Just last weekend, an official comes up to me and starts rambling about how people put everything on Youtube these days (I was holding a camera) and how there needs to be more regulation on filming at USTA events, etc. Didn't bother to even look at my sons match during his 10 minute rant. I saw him talking to more parents than watching tennis during the day.
