The times that Chapman went 2 men down they were both obvious penalties. The call on the coach was made, and I could see from the bleachers that he was 10 feet on the field in the middle of the game. Regardless of what he was yelling that the ref missed, that’s a flag, and when he wouldn’t get off the field, it was another flag. The flags that were thrown deserved to be thrown for the most part, the non-calls is where I felt the majority of the fan were getting frustrated.
As for the shot that went through, the ONLY person on the field who made a gesture that it went it was the attackman at X. Not the crowd, not the chapman bench, if it did go it nobody but him saw it.
There were some very bad calls (both ways) Saturday night, but it’s ignoring Chapman’s lack of discipline to blame every penalty from the weekend on the Utah refs. They throw a lot of checks, a lot of risky checks, and when they don’t land them they are slashes. Not saying they should change their style, but they are going to get flags in any state when you play that way.]]>
When they lose Manning, Polytika, and company it’s back to the drawing board for Utah.]]>
Utah refs are terrible, but they are terrible both ways. In fact, in most games there is a an obvious anti-byu bias from two refs that don’t make secrets they don’t like BYU and call the game accordingly.]]>
2: That aside, BYU and Utah is a very good teams. BYU is obviously good and Utah is a top ten team , but the officiating in some of there contests could have had a huge impact on scores so far this season.]]>
