This is what amazed me.....0 fouls...how is this possible?
his walk was more egregious that went uncalled
Traveling should be a point of emphasis for every college official. Learn the rule about only having one pivot foot and how the jump stop is supposed to work. Who's got that McRoberts gif from a few year's back?
Yeah Leslie's walking was the only thing that really really really pissed me off last night - from the officials. The rest was mostly shit I'd wish they call but that at least they weren't calling half the time and letting slide the other half.
I'd disagree with this. If anything I think the calls are worse than in the NBA.
NBA officiating isn't amazing, but it is lightyears ahead of college officiating right now. There is no consistency and guys get absolutely mugged pretty much all the time without fouls being called.
I've noticed this, for example. When I watch an NFL game (with the real officials, haha) and I think there's a blown call, about 90% of the time I realize the refs actually got it right on the replay. That NEVER happens in college basketball. There are missed calls literally every single possession, almost.
It really is that bad.
Tell me we arent getting screwed.
It's exactly as any rational person would expect. After I saw the King Karl in the house post at least I knew I would have lots of free time between Noon and 2pm to get some work done on my computer.
This officiating has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with this game right now All you fans who constantly bitch about referees are the absolute worst. There is absolutely nothing we are doing right now to win this game. Referees giving us every call wouldn't change that. Just the shut the fuck about about your referee bitching.
As I stated in the other thread. In our last 3 halves of basketball our opponent has not even close to the bonus in fouls. 1st half NC ST: 3 FOULS 2ND HALF: 5 FOULS (one give away at the end of the game) 1st half UNC: 5 FOULS.
I am in no way saying the reason we are losing this game is because of the refs, but those numbers are certainly a little fishy.
Well thats why we have this specific thread for bitching about the refs. The game thread is where we talk about our joke of a team.
Obviously it's not affecting the outcome of the game because we're playing like shit, but when we get called for 4 off the ball fouls and they get called for 4 fouls total something isn't right.
I'm not saying we're losing because of the refs. I'm saying the refs are not, and since we started the acc schedule have not been calling the game fairly.
Step away from the keyboard until you can pretend to post an intelligent thought.
The proof is not in the pudding, The proof of the pudding is in the tasting.
Haha I suppose u do have a point there. Just tired of ref bitching when it is a about the least thing I am worried about right now
You're right, nothing but how we're playing this very second should ever be mentioned. Sorry to have taxed your brain with more than one thought at a time.
Nor are they going to start calling things fairly. We have to be more mentally tough, slapping away the reach-ins and using high elbows in close.
I just don't get why Turge never talks to the refs ever. Every time we get a shit call he just takes it and never says anything.
He was apoplectic for most of the first half.
