ID:	18632since i only have one co-worker (who is not into sports), i decided to have a conversation with the water cooler itself. he agrees that the refs should be drawn & quartered! this water cooler is a pretty cool guy!!

    Re: Blog: Officiating to dominate water coolers on Tuesday

    Losses like this hurt because they'll be relived over and over today when folks in my office will want to come get my take on what happened. I don't mind sharing my take, but it gets old when the people asking aren't really fans. I may have to pull the "no comment-move on" thing for my own sanity today.

    Re: Blog: Officiating to dominate water coolers on Tuesday

    And it looks like at least one thread about the officiating from last night has been deleted for some reason.....

    Re: Blog: Officiating to dominate water coolers on Tuesday

    My voice was gone and my throat was killing me, and with about five minutes left, I decided not to scream at the top of my lungs anymore. Until I did, over and over and over.

    Just sad that a great game was decided by a really bad series of calls.

    As far as I can tell, that makes you qualified to be a referee.

    Re: Blog: Officiating to dominate water coolers on Tuesday

    Here I thought we might have a chance at a fairly called game, when I heard Higgins and Janssen weren't there.

    Oh how wrong I was.

    yep, the refs lost the game no more analysis needed. isu did everything right, didn't miss a shot, no turnovers, but were cheated by a bad call that obviously was a foul on Kansas

    Fail. If he missed his nose he'd be qualified to be a referee.

    Touche.

    If you were Georges Niang, I'd call a foul right now.

    Ha! Swallow the whistle and "let them play" and then call a foul on Niang. Horrible sequence.....

    I think it's a common sense call. If a guy goes to the floor, he should know that's a foul. That's just how it works.



    I feel much dumber after typing that one. Ouch.

    Not a conspiracy. Thread was deleted because the phone number of a ref got posted in it. That's 100 percent not appropriate. It was quoted like 20 or so times and I wasn't going to take the the time to clean every individual post up. Was a very long night and I figured there were plenty of refereeing threads forr you all already.
