Was at the Jazz game last night and didn’t watch much of the game but was happy to say that you were my entertainment for the night!! Your smile is great!!!

Brooke December 26, 2009 at 12:39 am

Now, I am a diehard Nuggets fan, but I was looking at this guy the whole night instead of watching the game…….:-)

Mr Davis you suck you should lose your job and your family should leave you
May you be responsible for a loved one’s death

Wardell Montgomery February 11, 2011 at 7:00 pm

The double technical foul that Marc Davis called on Tyson Chandler and Demarcus Cousins Tuesday night during the last minute of the DAllas and Kings game was the wrong call, both individuals were going for the ball and I did not see where either player did anything wrong as both of them were trying to rebound the ball. There was no reason for him to call that Technical foul from half court and cause Cousins to be ejected. If the refree closest to the play didnt deem it necessary to call a technical foul, then why would Davis who was at half court call the foul. He blew the call plain and simple, maybe he has it in for rookies.

Lee April 26, 2011 at 8:21 pm

Yeah, Mark Davis is DREAMY!

Lee May 3, 2011 at 7:02 am

Wow! Warriors Fan, you might want to seek help; or, maybe find a hobby. Best of luck to you finding fulfillment in your life.

Andrew T. Williams May 23, 2011 at 3:43 pm

Would like for you to be a part of my staff in a pro-am tournament. Have a camp for you to critique officials and assist in their growth. Begins Sun. June 5, 2011. Meet and greet with officials on Fri. June 3, 2011. If interested please contact me. Thanks.

mark davis sucks April 11, 2012 at 9:44 pm

mark davis, you are the worst ref! worse than violet palmer and that’s pretty tough.

Bob Williams April 11, 2012 at 10:00 pm

Terrible officiating tonight, you made the game about you, rather than the players. Motivational speaker, my tush.

Johnny Mo April 11, 2012 at 10:00 pm

How great that he lectures about being lousy at your job and not get fired. He is most definitely an expert. He very nearly single-handedly defeated the Celtics tonight with his atrocious calls. So sick of this guy, he should stick to his day job – add in some presentations of his lousy performances and explaining how on earth he is still an NBA referee.

Mike April 11, 2012 at 10:03 pm

By far the worst official in the league, that dude is on the take, no doubt about it, watch his officiating in the 4th quarter and OT in the Celtics vs. Hawks game on 4/11/12 and you’ll be convinced that this guy is incompetent and dirty. What a disgrace….

Carter Smith April 11, 2012 at 10:09 pm

This guy is piece of work and needs to be physically held off from officiating anymore games, he’s probably the only official actively working to undermine the local time. I hope, if there’s anything the Celtics can do about this, they should get this guy fired from the position.

Mike Kane April 12, 2012 at 11:39 am

I have to laugh. In Mark Davis’ bio above it says “how to be lousy at your job and not get fired”. He sure proved it last night in the Celtics/Hawks game. He was so bad he should be fired but I guess he’s figured out a way to be lousy at reffing and not get fired just like his bio says!

HROS April 29, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Just watched hawks-celtics game, wondering why this guy isnt reffing middle school games. Awful calls, just pathetic. No wonder he has only officiated one playoff game. The league should put officials who are actually moderately talented at what they do in playoff games, because people like Marc Davis are wrecking the game for players who are actually talented.

Fan April 29, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Mark Davis is a Bitch Worst Ref In the NBA Needs to Be fired

George April 29, 2012 at 8:43 pm

Mark Davis is a piss poor referee. He blows more calls than he makes correct. Please somebody fire him so he can go back to parking cars or whatever he did before that.

nolita velasco April 29, 2012 at 9:01 pm

Marc Davis – why do you hate the Celtics so much? You never fail to make dubious calls against the Celtics. Tonight is a good example- last touch Atlanta but you call it for them. What is obviously a jump ball, you wait a minute then call a foul against the Celtics. Are you perhaps a frustrated Celtic wannabe? What is it with you?

Hector April 30, 2012 at 6:55 am

The double technical foul that Marc Davis called on Rando y.Yesterday night during the last minute of the Boston and Atlanta game was the wrong call, both individuals were going for the ball and I did not see where either player did anything wrong as both of them were trying to rebound the ball. There was no reason for him to call that Technical foul from half court and cause Rando to be ejected. If the refree closest to the play didnt deem it necessary to call a technical foul, then why would Davis who was at half court call the foul. He is a Stupid Ref and must be fired.

Robb April 30, 2012 at 8:01 am

Marc Davis was stalking Rondo all night just looking for an opportunity to blow his little whistle. He mad a horrible call that basically ended the game and he will never be punished for it. The players on the other hand have to suck it up and be quiet no matter how inconsistant the officials are night after night. NBA has become a wait and see sport. Wait and see what king of mood the officals are in and then gage your game accordingly. Much like the MLB the officials think it’s about them. I have never paid to go see an offical. I think the commissioner needs to take that money he gets from fines and get some real officials.

Rajon Rondo April 30, 2012 at 10:58 am

Hey man I’m sorry, I tripped. I was upset when you blew the jump ball call, it was a close one but you need to throw a little flare in the game and called a foul, I was actually clapping in approval of your call but you teched me, what’s up with that? Then I trip on my own feet and you eject me? You gave the Hawks that game last night, it sucks for every fan watching to watch a game for three hours only to have the referee decide the outcome in three seconds, you should be ashamed!

Tim May 1, 2012 at 6:09 am

Worst referee ever, no comes to NBA games to see you. If you don’t know how to call games correctly please do everyone a favor and find a new job.

Jojo May 11, 2012 at 9:22 pm

Technical on Reggie Evans in Game 6 2012 first round NBA Playoffs was absolutely nuts. Remedial action necessary for Davis. If only he was as quick to call ANYTHING on Gasol …

Justin G May 11, 2012 at 10:28 pm

Just saw you give Reggie Evans a technical foul for giving blake griffin a high five. Congratulations on calling the dumbest technical foul of all time.

Jason May 11, 2012 at 11:28 pm

Hey Mark – how much did you get paid to fix Game 6 of Clippers-Grizzlies? Granted – the Clips lost it by their own doing. But a phantom T on Evans, bogus time out for the Grizz, and not calling traveling on Conley. We’re on to you. I smell a “Connolly” situation. Apparently, the Grizz didn’t need your help – but with a two point outcome – maybe they did? Dude, you should ashamed. If this was not fixed, you’re just a horrible ref. Ridiculous.

Jojo May 11, 2012 at 11:59 pm

Been watching that play again. Perhaps Marc Davis can explain his nutso self sometime soon. He should also apologize to the NBA and the Clippers. Or resign as an NBA official. What kind of whack-job Ts a high-five?

Disgusted May 12, 2012 at 12:30 am

“When not officiating, Davis is a motivational speaker who speaks to sales forces on topics including goal setting, team building, the mechanics of presentation and how to be lousy at your job and not get fired.” Sure took that one to the bank tonight. Get the FACK off the court you NBA disgrace!

Brian May 12, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I just gave myself a technical for high fiving my son while playing a game of basketball. I didnt’t know it was against rules to do that….Oh wait, it’s not. Glad to see Cracker Jack went from giving licenses to NBA referee jobs in their boxes. You should collaborate with the NFL as they also are moving to make sports emotionless and boring too. Great job!

MDC May 13, 2012 at 11:54 am

This guy sucks as a ref. Pls don’t let him ref anymore. Go to the tape… http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball-dont-lie/reggie-evans-may-gotten-technical-foul-giving-blake-055836757.html
Too many bad calls!

Brian May 13, 2012 at 3:13 pm

This Loser of a ref needs to go……piss poor calls…..The NBA should shit can this turd of a ref…

Brian May 13, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Davis is a motivational speaker who speaks to sales forces on topics including goal setting, team building, the mechanics of presentation and how to be lousy at your job and not get fired. Guess this last line sums up his ref skills…..How to be lousy at your job and no be fired……Lame calls……what a turd……Do i get a technical for posting. Wonder how much he gets paid on the side for these calls he seems to enjoy making…..can we say corrupt.

Jason May 14, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Ha Ha Mark – Clips win the series. Your efforts to fix the series didn’t work. Apparently, someone agrees with me about your abilities as a ref.

J P Gonsalves-Silva May 25, 2012 at 3:15 pm

Marc Davis has to be the lousiest Ref the NBA has ever hired. He caused Dallas to lose the one game he worked. He did a lousy job last night Miami vs Indiana gm. 6 and the Celtic need to walk off the court if he even shows up, because they will be in foul trouble before the first half is over. This Guy is an Ego Maniac and he just loves the Bulls (Rose especially) he would kiss LaBrick’s behind not to mention Wade and Kobe is king to him. So we know where his favorites reside. He threatened to kick Alan Iversons butt, what is that all about?
