  • Claude Giroux Wipes Boogers on Ref (Video)

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Two NHL Referees Took a Puck to the Face Last Night (Videos)

    Monday, February 4th, 2013 will go down as one of the worst days to be an on-ice official in NHL history.  Why?  Because not one, but two NHL referees were on the receiving end of a puck to the face during last night’s slate of games. The first took place at the Air Canada Centre […]

    Most people in the sporting world will tell you that the best referees are the ones that you barely notice, but you have to believe that even some of the best officials out there would love to get in on the action from time to time.  Especially when you consider the fact that many of them […]

    NFL referees are responsible for keeping things clean during games so that the content on the field doesn’t offend those watching in person, or on television.  And while everyone understands that the refs are human and every once in a while they may miss a call and allow a dangerous play to go unpeanalized, no […]
