Tonawanda News —
I’ve suffered through some pretty upsetting officiating in my years as a Buffalo sports fan. The Bills lost a playoff game when no one could agree whether a ball that wasn’t thrown backward actually went forward. I’ve sat and watched as a foot in the goal crease in triple overtime of a decisive Stanley Cup game cost my beloved Sabres a shot at our first title.
I’m used to this kind of thing. Bad calls are a part of being a fan. But when your sport in large part entails throwing and catching a ball and you can’t tell me what constitutes a “catch” there’s something seriously wrong.
Sort of makes you think when it comes to football we’re all wasting our time, doesn’t it?Eric DuVall is the managing editor of the Tonawanda News. His column appears Wednesdays and Sundays. Contact him at email@example.com.
