"Boys, I'm one of those umpires that misses 'em every once in a while so if it's close, you'd better hit it." Cal Hubbard
I can't really give my opinion because I only do baseball but I am yet to meet a multiple sport official who doesn't agree baseball is the hardest to officiate.
I can't speak as an official but as a fan it sure looks like fumbles, feet in bounds, holding and pass interference calls are tougher than calls at 1B and maybe balls/strikes. I'd say balls/strikes are the toughest calls in baseball
Haven't really seen him this season other than yesterday night with the Reds but CB Buckner is beyond bad. Most inconsistent ump I have seen in years.
Yep, hard to really imagine worse than CB, routinely gets all types of close calls wrong, has a traveling strike zone when behind the plate, and he tops it off by getting all out of control snippy if anyone even glances at him sideways.

Pay attention to the open sky
Also C.B. was named as the worst umpire in a recent players' survey.
