Because the NBA Referee Twitter account went SOOO well, the SEC has decided that they will start their own. If there is one thing that everyone knows, it’s that drunken southern football fans whose team just lost because of a blown call are surprisingly reasonable. This is going to be a disaster.
And here we are on day one of the account. A month and a half from the start of the season and it is already going exactly how everyone expected.
If you want some old unresolved memories brought up for no reason at all, go ahead and take a gander at the replies to that tweet. Some of them are funny, but some of them cut deep. What seems to be the overall theme of the page is serious hate of Alabama. Half the replies are examples of blatant favoritism for the Tide. Don’t expect that to change, but maybe the SEC will finally notice it.
This is going to be a train wreck for the SEC referees and I AM HERE FOR IT. I am all for holding referees accountable, but why are referees the only people on the field who aren’t allowed to make mistakes? Quarterbacks throw interceptions, linebackers miss assignments, safeties miss tackles, you name it. But the only thing people remember years later is how a 50/50 call at 100% speed did not go their team’s way.
