I officiated quite a few baseball and basketball games in my younger years.

I quickly learned that a bang-bang play at first base or a charge/block call in basketball will lead to 50% of the fans thinking that the call was wrong. I have a lot more tolerance for officials when they make these calls. Unfortunately, there are officials in all sports that regularly miss the 80-20 or even the 100-0 calls, and they still get to call games in the post season.
