Good article about officials missing out of officiating the NCAA Tournament this year.
Notable paragraph I found interesting:
"According to an NCAA conference officiating coordinator who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because figures are not typically made public, referees for a mid-major league make about $2,700 a game. For a major conference, it's close to $4,000 a game. For a referee like Pollard, $10,000 weeks aren’t unusual. Officials work for five months — from November to April — but yearly income can still be more than $200,000."
"Cancelling the tournament hurts the pocketbook, costing some refs around $20,000."
