We are a close team that is passionate about social media, advanced statistics, and sports. Years ago, we started our company out of frustration with officiating inconsistency. Like you, we have seen time and time again calls change the entire trajectory of a game and felt powerless to do anything about it…We realized that we needed a meaningful outlet where data could be systematically collected and measured to make our voice heard. With #RefRatings, we provide a platform to not only collect and analyze this information (including both bad and good officiating) to improve the quality of officiating but a place to connect with friends and fellow sports fans.
