Biased officiating dismays Cats fan


Re: UA’s loss to Stanford on Saturday at McKale Center

I have been attending basketball games for over 25 years, and never have I seen such terrible and one-sided officiating.

Even the Stanford fans that were by me knew they would not lose
because the officials would not let it happen. The Pac-10 officials (if
you can call them that) and the Pac-10 review committee need to watch
the game again and again, fire those officials and get someone from the
Big East or anywhere to officiate the rest of the season.

That was the most atrocious officiating I have seen EVER! . . . I
feel bad for the players giving 100 percent and getting that kind of
one-sided effort from the officials. Go Cats, and from now on know that
you have to beat eight of them instead of the five on the court.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
