  • An NFL Official Was Fired For Selling DeflateGate Balls

    An NFL Official Was Fired For Selling DeflateGate Balls

    After a few weeks away from the spotlight, DefalteGate has reasserted itself at the top of the headlines once again. Last night, it was word that a Patriots locker-room employee was being investigated by the league for attempting to hand the alternate official an unapproved special teams ball during the AFC Championship Game.  And now […]

    Chris Paul Rips Female Ref After Clippers Loss to Cavs (Video)

    The Los Angeles Clippers had a horrendous night on Thursday, as they accumulated a total of five technical fouls during an uninspiring 105-94 loss to the red-hot Cavs in Cleveland.  One of those technical fouls  was on Chris Paul, and it was called by rookie referee Lauren Holtkamp, who is in her first year as an […]

    Referee Brad Watson Thinks The NHL’s Ducks Play In Atlanta (Video)

    There’s probably a lot of people in America who couldn’t tell you which city the NHL’s Ducks call home. (Anaheim,duh!) But if there’s one person (besides any member of the Ducks’ organization) who I’d bet my life on them knowing which city the Ducks play out of, it’s probably referee Brad Watson, who was officiating […]

    Cowboys Fans Selling “Refs Must Die” Shirts on eBay

    For those who aren’t really into Julian Edelman‘s “The Catch” t-shirt that the Patriots wide receiver is currently selling on his website, here’s a piece of Divisional Round memorabilia you may be interested in.  It’s the “Refs Must Die” shirt that is currently being sold by Dallas Cowboys fans on eBay. The shirts were made […]

    NHL Referee Pukes During Lightning-Penguins Game (Video)

    We’re not sure what NHL referee Mike Leggo had for his pregame meal prior to last night’s game between the Lightning and Penguins in Pittsburgh, but it didn’t seem to sit well with his stomach. The result?  A 12 minute delay in the game so that they could clean Leggo’s puke off the ice. Truth […]

    Claude Giroux Wipes Boogers on Ref (Video)

    That title may sound disgusting and you may be having a hard time believing it ever happened.  But it did.  And the evidence is on tape. It happened just moments before an offensive zone faceoff for the Philadelphia Flyers during Tuesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.  With linesman Greg Devorski distracted by something […]

    Oblivious Referee Decked By Wide Receiver, Prevents Sure TD (GIF)

    Whoops! This referee had something of a snafu during this unidentified football game, likely a smaller college or high school playoff. The zebra was hanging back from the line of scrimmage (way back, oddly), which you would think would give him a good vantage point for seeing the play develop. But apparently this dude was […]

    Ref Knocked Out by Elbow to the Head During Tipoff (Video)

    Every sports fan has wanted to personally strangle and/or punch a referee in the face at one point or another. It’s the nature of sports. We get riled up sometimes. However, only deranged soccer fans actually do it. The rest of us have a little thing called impulse control. So instead, we all have to […]

    Jameis Winston Shoves Referee, But ACC Says It’s No Big Deal (Video)

    Anyone who follows college football closely but was not watching Florida State-Boston College on Saturday probably saw “Jameis Winston shoves referee” on their phones and thought Jameis had done something really stupid again, despite such clear, unequivocal advice from Kevin Hart. However, “shove-gate” (or whatever the media is calling it) isn’t quite that simple. Here’s […]

    Behold, the Worst Call in College Football History (GIFs)

    First, I’ll start off by allowing you to watch the play. It comes from Tuesday’s Mid-American Conference tilt between the University at Buffalo and Ohio University, as Ohio quarterback Tyler Tettleton was faced with 3rd & 7 from his own 27-yard line. Here’s what happened next: You probably couldn’t tell, but Tettleton was flagged for […]

    Red Wings Fan Shakes Her Breasts at the Refs (Video)

    There were plenty of remarkably pleasing sights to take in during Game Four of the first-round playoff series between the Detroit Red Wings and the Anaheim Ducks last night (unless, of course, you are a Ducks fan). For starters, there were several key, highlight reel saves made by goaltender Jimmy Howard.  Here’s a look at […]

    Bucks’ Larry Sanders Hands Out Thumbs-Up to the Officials (Video)

    The Milwaukee  Bucks are almost a lock to make this year’s NBA playoffs, as they currently sit in eighth place, eight games ahead of the ninth-place Toronto Raptors.  However, you have to believe that the Bucks would love to get as many wins as they can over the final month of the season so that […]
