Have you seen the forearm shiver lately?

I’m not that guy that you always hear saying that “all sporting events are fixed” and how pointless and idiotic it is to gamble on the outcome of games. In fact, I am the guy that gambles on the outcomes of games and I’m not really too worried about whether a game is “fixed” or not. If a game is fixed, then factor that into your bet, either way a team comes out winning or losing. I also would bring up the point of the World Series match-up; have you seen who’s playing in it? Anyone with the slightest belief of sports games being fixed would have jumped all over the fact that the BoSox and Dodgers were in the playoffs and able to make a run. Hell, I even thought that’s who we would see in the World Series because it would draw the most viewers, the MLB gets major loot off it, and everyone is happy. But now we have the Phillies and the Rays…you really think that was fixed like that?

My whole point is, it sometimes slips our minds about what an impact referees have on the outcomes of games. We obviously all heard about the schmuck in the NBA and we have heard of SEC college football refs admitting to knowing about shaved points. We’ve even seen players go to trial do to shaving points themselves, in both football and basketball. Well this clip below has to be the single-handed LARGEST impact ever made by a ref. And no, this is not fake. This SEC ref obviously had LSU to cover (as did I) and he did his part to make that happen.
