Officials take a lot of abuse
The banter on sports talk radio this week has been about blown calls during the pro football playoffs, while anyone who has attended a Louisiana Tech University men’s or women’s basketball game this year would swear the refs don’t have a clue.
But, whether you like these men and women or not, you have to admire them. On every call, half of the crowd thinks they’re wrong and lets them know it.
At the Thomas Assembly Center on the Tech campus, I have heard officials called stupid, morons, idiots and blind. And that’s just what I can print in a family paper.
