Sports Reference LLC does not discriminate in employment decisions on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, military service eligibility, veteran status, marital status, disability, membership in any other protected classes, or on the basis of sports franchise preferences.

I'd apply but I'm lousy at routine clerical work and I already have a job.

However, if by "moderate", you mean tell everyone what dumbasses they are, I can do that really well.

Sports Referene.com: Job Opening


Is this a test of the "strong attention to and concern for details?" If so, can I have the job? I've got a bachelor's in journalism and am saber-friendly. Just please overlook my JD.

I totally want to be a sports referee!

Should I list my 3rd place finish at the 2012 SABR baseball trivia contest on my resume?

Are you a woman? Because a referene is a female sports official.
