    Thumbs down Am i the only one

    I cannot be the only one who is tired of all these Cyclone fans constantly blaming the officiating after each game. It is so annoying to me, it makes us seem like Hawk fans. Its a bad habit and it needs to stop. The last few times ive left Hilton ive overheard it.

    Re: Am i the only one

    I don't like it either but I will say they've given us plenty of ammo to shoot at them! When the officiating in one school's games (between football and basketball) makes national news in one year because it was so outrageous, I can certainly see where people are coming from!

    The refs were pretty bad against KSU.

    Re: Am i the only one

    I will stop being critical of the refs when they call a foul when 1) Hogue has rebounding position and gets pushed down, 2) when Niang has rebounding position and the opposing player has one hand on top of his should holding him down and 3) when they call a foul for Kane getting raped every time he goes in the lane.

    Once I see those 3 things I will be fine with the officiating.

    Re: Am i the only one

    Because of some of the outrageous calls we've had in the past, people have started assuming that the refs are out to get us, which is not the case. Yes, it does get very annoying.

    I agree. Unfortunately you cant stop it, or even contain it.

    Where's the poll? I vote NO, you aren't the only one.

    Yes it is annoying, the conspiracy theorists are the worst though.

    Re: Am i the only one

    I agree. I'm tired of the ref complaining. We had some terrible calls last year, especially, but when we lose, it's because the team has made many more mistakes than the refs.

    It does get annoying. Getting hosed on calls also gets annoying. It's a conundrum.

    Re: Am i the only one

    I thought the KSU game was the worst we've seen this year though still not really that bad. That intentional on Hogue was pretty terrible though. We haven't lost a game because of refs this year (basketball) and that's all you can ask for.

    A win or a loss is the culmination of many things that happen during a game and while refs are a part, the vast majority are the little plays made or not made.

    If some of our homers could objectively watch any other team, they would see bad calls there as well.

    Yeah its tougher to win on the road. And yeah its tougher for other teams to win on the road at Hilton.

    But honestly its CLEAR to me why there would be a national NCAA agenda against ISU athletics. It's obvious, right? Someone? Buehler?

    Re: Am i the only one

    At least we complain about refs after wins and losses, there's something to be said for consistency.

    Re: Am i the only one

    As long as people complain about officiating when we win, I am good with them complaining about it when we lose. And as an added bonus, if they admit we got a call we shouldn't have, they can double the official sucks output when we lose. :-)
