    The refs have been going down hill for years. Would we want a any doctor to work on us without actually learning how, but somehow passed the test with no school? Hey refs… Go back to the books! You are doing no good service to any school. Maybe peewee.

    The refs in this game were awful. The Tallmadge coach is a jerk. The reporter did not have to print what he did knowing the outcome. Look at the video of the Tallmadge kid head butting the Barberton kid. Joke!

    I am wondering why I think our Constitution gives folks freedom of speech and that the Constitution is the highest law in the land. I wonder if it was Harry Truman who said if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen?

    Gotto was right in what he did. Refs need to be FIRED!

    Officials were horrible and deserve criticism. They officiated with a cocky attitude as if they were trying to get a reaction from the coaches. I say suspend the refs!

    What did he say? Did he hurt the poor little officials feelings??
    At least it’s only he Kent game, and not the Highland game…
