    Referee Makes A Nice Tackle On Valencia’s Sergio Canales (Video)

    Many sports fans will tell you that the best officials are the ones that you barely notice during games, as they let the players play the game and refrain from having a significant influence on the final outcome.  So with that being said, what should we make of Eduardo Gonzalez’s officiating during Saturday’s La Liga […]

    Female mixed martial artist Kim Couture shouldn’t have been allowed to take part in her bout with Sheila Bird in Calgary on Friday due to an indefinite medical suspension.  However, a mix-up by the Calgary Combative Sports Commission and their failure to review the MMA database allowed Couture to take part in the fight, and […]

    Plenty of basketball fans and Heat haters were happy to see Miami fall to the Dallas Mavericks during Game 5 of the NBA Finals last night, but perhaps no one was more overcome with joy than referee Bill Kennedy, who couldn’t stop himself from dry-humping the air during a foul call late in the second […]

    Picture Of The Day: Watch The Eyes Ref!

    During Monday’s game between Slovakia and Denmark at the 2011 IIHF World Hockey Championships, Miroslav Satan and Jesper Jensen (you can guess which one is Slovakian and which is Danish) mixed it up after the whistle, leading to this rather vicious eye-gouge from one of the linesmen.  I guess with so little fighting taking place […]

    Check Out This Matrix Referee (Video)

    In the sport of wrestling, it appears as though the wrestlers aren’t the only ones who can put their incredible athleticism on display.  As indicated by the video below, the referees can do the same when given the opportunity, as was the case during this match, when the official in the black suit was required […]

    Kelly Sutherland Proves That NHL Referees Are Tough Too (Videos)

    Many sports fans will tell you that the National Hockey League has the toughest players in any North American professional sport.  I am here to tell you that the NHL also has the toughest referees in any North American professional sport.  Kelly Sutherland proved that last night while officiating a game between the Buffalo Sabres […]

    When it comes to officiating the game of hockey, some may say that the referees have the toughest job, having each of their calls analyzed and scrutinized by the media and fans who have the luxury of taking a closer look at every play through the use of instant replay.  There is no denying the […]

    After witnessing the Montreal Canadiens get beat up by the Boston Bruins during their last meeting, most NHL fans believed the Habs needed to acquire some size and toughness at the NHL trade deadline if they hope to succeed in the playoffs. The Habs remained quiet at the deadline, and now even the referees appear […]

    Untimely Fall Results In Goal Post To The Groin For Linesman (Video)

    It may not be quite as embarrassing as going through puberty in the midst of explaining a call to the fans in attendance during an NHL game, but falling to the ice and sliding groin first into the goal post is pretty damn close. I have always wondered if referees wear jock straps while officiating […]

    NHL Referee Goes Through Puberty Right Before Our Eyes (Video)

    NHL referee Chris Rooney may be 35-years-old, but during last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the New York Islanders, he took a trip back in time to somewhere around the year 1991, when he was a young teenager just hitting puberty. Unfortunately for Chris, the two teams and approximately 4976 fans in attendance, […]
