    Referee Joey Crawford Tells Timofey Mozgov to ‘Shut Up’ (Video)

    ESPN has really given viewers at home an up-close look at the NBA Finals, and never has that been more evident than during Game 4. It all started with the LeBron James wardrobe malfunction prior to tip-off.  And then, during the second quarter of tonight’s contest, courtside microphones caught goofball referee Joey Crawford yelling “Do me […]

    NBA Admits Refs Sucked During Game 2 of the NBA Finals

    We’re only hours away from tipoff to Game 3 of the NBA Finals, but for those who aren’t quite finished discussing the happenings of Game 2, they’ll be interested in hearing what the NBA had to say about the officiating during Sunday’s game at Oracle Arena: That is sucked!

    Lil Wayne Tries to Fight Referee at Charity Basketball Game (Video)

    Attacking a referee at a charity basketball game seems like a pretty low thing to do. Even for Lil Wayne. The rapper was in St. Louis on Sunday coaching his Young Money team in a charity bball game for “Put Down The Pistol,” an anti-gun violence program supported by various organizations throughout the community. But after a […]

    Female Linesman in Brazil Snaps on Whining Player (Video)

    Ponte Preta forward Biro Biro thought he could stand there and voice his anger over a call on the field without having to deal with some backlash from the female linesman (lineswoman?). He was wrong. Watch as lineswoman Tatiane Sacilotti puts the 20-year-old Brazilian in his place after he tries to aggressively dispute her decision […]

    Referee Joey Crawford has done a lot of strange/stupid things over the course of his NBA officiating career, and you can add his latest antics to that list.

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
