Here is a thing that was posted on the AOL Message boards for College football. This was posted by an Oregon fan.
And I quote:
"Laying low under the radar for years, Saturday's referees crew have finally been found out. They're the cause of not just the outcome of yesterday's
game but many other larger, global issues. As for yesterday's game, here's a shortened list of all the things caused by the referees: I wanted
everyone to have a full recap, just to make it easy to see how Oregon's play had NOTHING to do with the outcome and nothing was Oklahoma's fault. The
refs caused all this:
The refs caused Oklahoma to give up 501 yards of offense.
The refs caused Stewart to go off for 144 yards and a better average than Peterson, by the way.
The refs caused Paysinger to be wide open by 10 yards on a 20 yard route for the winning TD.
Dixon's 16 yard, untouched run into the endzone to get Oregon within six was a direct result of the refs failing to make a tackle for Oklahoma.
Something they did repeatedly all day long that needs to be investigated.
The refs caused Oklahoma to only get 6 points when Malcolm Kelly pushed off Walter Thurmond, got seperation and scored a TD. This is an atrocity.
Oklahoma should've been awarded 12 points for that play. I'm outraged myself.
The refs caused Oklahoma to have to go too far for their last TD of the 3rd quarter. They gave Oklahoma a play that never happened when the clock went
out and Malcolm Kelly went the distance. Then only spotted the ball 8 yards AHEAD of where he stepped out. Saying he stepped out at the Oregon 47
instead of the OU 47. They should've placed the ball first and goal on the 1 yard line. That's what god wanted I believe. Again, those refs did not
give Oklahoma enough of an advantage in the 3rd quarter and thats incredibly unfair.
The refs caused more work for the sooners when they mysteriously only gave A.D. an extra 2 yards on the spot when he dove for the sticks in the 4th
quarter. Causing it to be 4th and inches instead of 4th and 2. Oklahoma deserved the 1st down even though they had come up short. 1 ref I know should
be fired for this. Total incompetence.
The refs caused OU to use all their T.O's ahead of time because of all the noise. Clearly, the refs have a duty to take all home field advantage away
from Oregon, and allow god's team to play as if they're in their own backyard. Yeah, I know OU prepared all weak. I know, everyone said "We've played
in hostile enviroments before." Still, the refs should of done something about it. Loud noise at a football game is wrong. These are just young guys
and to ask them to play with that kind of distraction is wrong. There should be an investigation.
The refs caused OU to not score TD's on three seperate occasion when they had first downs on the 2,3 and 7 of Oregon. Again, Oregon had nothing to do
with it, it was the refs. Huge hits by Chung,Ageyman and Phillips should of been wiped out. Their making plays down there was unfair, the refs
should've seen it and done something about it.
The refs also caused Oregon to have an unfair advantage as well by making sure 2 defensive starters were injured during the game. After causing
standout tackle Jeremy Gibbs to be injured, they also made sure starting LB Brent Haberly was injured. This gave Oregon an unfair advantage by making
them play with 2 guys who weren't as good. The NCAA will surely discuss this next week.
The refs caused the kick to be blocked. Yes, I've watched the tape (If you look closely frame by frame I swear this happens.) One of the refs runs
towards the line at the last second and joins the play, pushing along the Oregon line toward the kicker providing an extra push needed for Blair
Phillips to block the field goal. Without the referees help, Oregon wouldn't have blocked the kick, it would've been impossible. Of course, in
real-time its impossible to see this, but the film doesn't lie.
It's also well a proven fact that this referee crew is the cause of obesity, rising gas prices and diplomacy issues."
And also BHN Congrats on the 1,000th post.
