Whats the big deal with the refs?
Well it goes something like this.....
The Cs are the best team, the other team is a bunch of nameless faceless poseurs who have no business being on the same floor, so when the Cs are beaten or worse dominated, someone is to blame other than the Cs... if you live your life vicariously through your sports teams, and they by definition are the best well ummm.. because you are... then when they lose there is a conspiracy against you because how on earth could anyone be better than us / we / ummm the Cs......
Whenever you read posts where "we" didn't play well, and "the refs" costs "us" the game, there are blacktop players that have not touched a ball in 30 years that somehow think that a bunch of guys that cannot find Boston on a map represent them and if they are beaten then it has to be something other than the fact they were outplayed because that would make them something less than the greatest person on the planet.....
So if and when it is possible to blame injuries and the refs, etc. it should be employed regardless of whether it is even remotely applicable or not. It enables people who think "we" were robbed to feel better about themselves.
The complete inability to be objective and see that over a long period of time refs mean almost nothing to the game, it always serves up the excuse for the team.
Pierce commits about 10 offensive fouls per game, Rondo palms and travels on every possession, KG commits about 25 fouls per game, Perk at least 30, etc. but none of that matters unless of course it goes the other way.
