This brief little article is a table of all of the referees that have officiated a game (so far) in 2013. We list the name of the referee, the number of games worked by that official, the average number of fouls that take place in games where that official is one of the three named officials, and the number of player technical fouls that took place in games associated with that referee.
Why haven't we included head coach technical fouls? The simple reason is that there's no easy way to add it to the automated data process that produces the numbers below. However, I felt that the information below would be of interest.
Also note that Total Player Tech Fouls says that X number of technical fouls have been assessed by the referee crew to which that referee belongs. We are not saying that Bryon Jarrett has called four techs. What we are saying is that in all 10 games where Byron Jarrett was a ref, four technical fouls were called. Maybe he didn't call any of the techs himself, maybe his crew members called all of those. The refs are sort of an "innocent bystander" to this stat, but in the case of refs like Lamont Simpson and Denise Brooks, I've sure that they must have called a portion of those Ts with which they're associated.

So if Diana Taurasi is lacing up her kicks, she must be really happy to see a crew of Janetta Graham, Sue Blauch and Lauren Holtkamp - the number of technical fouls assessed in games which they have officiated totals one.
Whereas if she sees Lamont Simpson, Denise Brooks and Roy Gulbeyan, the night might be over sooner than she thinks it will.
