Re: This is the problem
I get calls wrong all the time. I make calls like I'm sure of it, but sometimes 5 seconds later it hits me that I made the wrong call. I would never in my life ignore this new insight and double down and refuse to change it so I don't look bad just because I may have had 4 or 5 of those already. There's is an elephant in the room no one wants to address. Heck even one of our brightest here was defending the Spencer Lee Austin Desanto call at the end of the match even though video evidence said otherwise and he knows it. Heck even when he had no choice but to criticize a set of finals refs at the controversial Idaho state championship a few years ago all he said was "Unbelievable!!!" where a kid in overtime took a backflip to kick out of a single leg and ended up scoring in OT on an illegal move. The coaches pulled out the rule book and the refs basically just said oh it was legal because the other kid kick started the flip when there was no kick. They didn't care about making the right call. They cared about asserting being right. I called our brightest out on this and why is he's not addressing this very common behavior. But I know the answer. Because he can't. Nothing can really be done about this self protecting authoritarian monster of a system which is why I'm STILL here ranting. Can I finally go to sleep now knowing maybe just maybe a couple of you will consider this even if it sounds crazy at first?
