Since we’ve been talking so much about cheating, and since you don’t believe there is cheating in sports, we’ve decided to list our “Three Worst Calls of All Time.” This is actually quite easy. Of course, our worst call of all time is NOT the Tuck Rule. Its only the third worst call in NFL history.
Worst Call #3: Bert Emanuel’s Catch: You are correct, Derrick Brooks. He made the catch, period:
St. Tony is a gentleman. I would have not even discussed it. It’s horrible-ness speaks for itself.
Worst Call #2: The entire 4th Quarter of Game Six, Sacramento – Los Angeles. Twenty-seven free throws for one team in a quarter? After the opposing team dominated the game for three quarters. Are you serious? Disgraced official Tim Donaghy states Dick Bavetta was selected for the game for his ability to manipulate games. Once Sacramento started to pull away, Bavetta and his crew pulled the Kings back:
Worst Call #1: This is clearly the worst series of calls in the history of sports:
A series of calls that shall live in infamy. I’d say those players shouldn’t have accepted their gold medals, but they would have probably have been shot if they hadn’t.
Dishonorable mentions: Don Denkinger’s call in favor of KC Royals, 1985 World Series game six; Tuck Rule game; Drew Pearson’s non-called pushoff against Nate Allen in the playoff game.
Let’s tackle that Pearson push-off: Afterwards, a cascade of crap came out of the stands. IIRC, the back judge got knocked out by a bottle of Jim Beam thrown from the stands.
NBA officials, with their homerism must think a bottle is going to come flying out of the stands.
