Referee Makes Tackle

Postby JRM4833 » Tue Oct 21, 2008 1:58 pm

Has this already been posted here? Everyone's already seen the Bud Light commercial here, but it actually happened in the LSU/South Carolina game on Saturday.

I guess it didn't affect the game since the Gamecocks scored two or three plays later anyways. Spurrier and the SEC cleared the ref of any wrongdoing. I'm not really buying it though. The ref was a former linebacker on Kentucky.

The slo-mo/field view is a bit deceiving. If you watch it on ESPN full speed from up above, you can see that the SC QB basically cuts back right into the ref.

It does look intentional from that angle, wonder what he was thinking. Maybe he had some money on Carolina? :-?

After last night's DEN Vs. NE game, maybe the Broncos should consider signing him !+)
