This is a somewhat off topic because it mostly deals with a men's referee. It does at least mention the women's tourney.

It touches on the effect of cancelling the tourneys on the refs. Mostly seems like a story about what a bad ass this guy thinks you need to be to be a good ref. And maybe that is true in men's bball, IDK. Maybe it's also true for the women, IDK. I think that some refs in the women's game appear that way, but others, most actually, don't seem to have the attitude this guy does.

Quote:
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.

True that!! And the CAA shares refs with the ACC, yet they seem to always send us their worst and dimmest.
