    Pistonsforum member coynejeremy was kind enough to compile statistics on the various NBA referees and how they called Pistons games throughout the 2006/7 regular season.

    Thanks for the stats Coyne.

    Obviously we don't want to see Phil Robinson, Eli Roe or Marc Davis doing any games..especially together..

    But Benny Adams, Dan Crawford, Jim Capers, Jess Kersey, and Jason Phillips would be nice

    Thanks, guys. I wasn't sure how statistically significant this list was, since there were a lot of guys who only reffed 1 or 2 games, but I thought it would be interesting to see. Usually we just talk about "the refs" as if we had equal chances with any crew on any night. What I should have done is count how many fouls were called against us vs our opponents and whether it was a home/away game. Now that would have been interesting! And I would have failed all my classes spending all that time on it. :MusicBigGrin:

    Now does anyone know whether they release the schedule of who will be officiating at which games?

    I think it would be interesting to tally the fouls and foul shots taken by the Pistons and their opponents for each of the referees home vs away.

    :hoops:

    Apparently the article is free right now and doesn't require a subscription.

    Free Article - WSJ.com

    Be sure to read the whole TrueHoop entry though because the UPDATE at the end is interesting to read as well.

    This is some interesting info. But it still doesn't cover certain players getting calls and consistency, even though overall it looks consistent, from game to game we all know how it works.

    Just wondering.

    Did you adjust your numbers for the opponent they played? (You might be able to use the result of your study as a school paper).

    In other words it could be that the officials that we win the most with just happen to be officiating when we play the the lousier teams and vice vesa?

    I think that is at least one filter that we need to see to determine if there is a real statistical significance by official regarding the Pistons winning or not.

    Thanks

    As far as home vs away.

    This year I don't think that mattered as the Pistons home and road record was almost identical.

    Though if the study were broken down by home and road by conference they played against that might be statistically significant. I do not recall if the Pistons had a better or worse home vs road record against the Western Conference or not. If they did then the opposite would be the case against the Eastern Conference since overall they finish about even at home vs on the road.

    :hoops:
