…A statistic brought forth by Sean Devaney of the Sporting News—Raptor record in games on the road when officiated by Tony Brothers, the lead official in the Raptor game in Brooklyn Monday, was 1-16. There is no way that is coincidental—not a record that bad. And again Brothers tried on Monday—giving Paul Pierce two free throws in the final minute on a play where no foul occurred and Brothers was thirty feet from the play. But Brothers wasn’t the biggest culprit in late game histrionics as Violet Palmer—who is quickly plumbing the depths among the leagues worst officials—called a charge on Lowry, on an easy block call, in the final seconds that could have determined the outcome of the game. It is seemingly impossible for the NBA officials to follow the agenda of the officials from the other three major sports leagues in North America—don’t be the difference in the game.
Wow. Can we seriously start some kind of petition to get the attention of the league?
I've always known in my heart that the refs STEAL games from us OVER AND OVER again but this pretty much PROVES it.
Anyone else get really angered by that stat?? 1-16?!?!
