[Autom. eng. transl.] In a competitive society like the post-modern one, sport takes on a paradoxical value: the place of the "clash" for victory and self-assertion must be the place to learn to compete fairly. There is a risk of a vicious circle: today's society educates less and less in correct competition; on the other hand it becomes increasingly difficult to activate logic based on respect for others in the field. In this cultural climate, the arbiter becomes the symbol of the authority that controls and represses, the lightning rod of aggression, often generated outside the field. If then the Referee offers ideas to protest (because incompetent, inadequate, rigid ...), players and spectators have the pretext to let off steam. The arbitration role is not very fascinating: they become less and less arbitrators, with negative consequences on the quality of the game on the pitch. Hence the need to investigate the representations of the basketball world on the role of arbitration, to understand the levers that inhibit or facilitate their recruitment. Recruit means (in) training, designating, evaluating and motivating: these are the areas of intervention (from which over 40 initiatives are created) to be supervised to "dismember the tangle" and which require a strong collaboration between the Federation and sports clubs.
