Hello everyone, I met Rodney in person and he looks kinda mean, but he’s pretty nice and seems like a good man. I also saw him in action as a father and it looks like he is doing a great job. Congratulations Rodney.

Rodney Mott, I knew that was you when I first seen you, about 15 years ago. My name is Claude Hawkins and I meet you when I played for coach Black, when you played with that Christian traveling team. I just wanted to touch bases with you to find out how or what I need to do to become an NBA Official. I have been a ref for over 18 years, and have done college weomens, high school and top men’s basketball. I look forward to hearing from you. Hope all is well with you and yours, peace.

I’ve been watching you for years now Mott. You’re doing a great job. Household name now too. What a game. Stopped in at City over last holiday to observe a practice and wasn’t even allowed in the door, then was thrown off the old football practice field for throwing the discus in a restricted area by the grounds keeper, no respect!!Ha. I still can’t forget that head fake up in Santa Rosa. Continued success for you Mott.

Rodney you and your crew should be a shame of yourself for the way you officiated celtics vs sixers playoff game. Its refs like you that give the NBA the ruputation as worst officated game in all of professional sports. I watched in horror the whole second half as you and your crew made one bad call after another and totally took the young sixers out of a game that they were dominating from the tap. The celtics literally slapped, smacked and tripped the sixers in the second half and all you sorry refs could do was swallow your whistles and if the sixers even breathed on the celtics you spineless drones would blow the whistle. You completly snatched victory away from a young team that deserved better from the NBA. All of you should be investigated for this crude act of facts, the sixers had 16 freethrows compared to 33 for boston and thats something I would love for you to explain but then again I dont know if you refs acted alone? You guys will probably be rewarded for a job well done by your boss Mr Stern for following his orders to a tee. Congrats!

This guy is as corrupt as can be.

Tons of phantom foul calls for Brooklyn in the Nets-Raptors playoff game, game 3. Good job Rodney! Way to blow the whistle everytime Deron Williams would miss a shot, or lose the ball.

Rodney, man I haven’t seen you in a hundred years my friend, last time we all saw you was your first NBA pre-season game in LA against Atlanta, now you know that was a couple of days ago. I’m retired now from you know where, did that in 2000, it was either that or get fired as I couldn’t handle all the dummies that were coming in, in the upper positions. I look for you every time I watch a game or check the box scores to see if you worked a game. Hope you get this, God Bless and take care.

Your friend
