    The Arizona game that torched me was the game vs Illinois when U of A blew that massive lead.

    A "neutral" court tournament game playing in Chicago, where the refs basically allowed rugby rules for the final 4 minutes as the Illini staged their comeback. The turnover that led to the game tying three was particularly egregious; Frye literally got tackled on the play.

    Yeah, that ending was a travesty too. I'd also put the Santa Clara game up there. Mills and Reeves did choke late but it would have never happened if the refs had actually pretended to do their jobs once the Wildcats took that big lead. But if I hadn't used our championship game as an example of rigged officiating, I could just as easily have gone to a Duke/Maryland game that was an even bigger screw job. Like I said, I don't trust college refereeing and while there are a lot of incompetent refs at that level, the problem is worse than that IMO.

    I liken this to the Niners scandal. They blatantly violated the salary cap, but won a Super Bowl. They goit their hands slappedm but too late to take the Super Bowl back! I think Suns fans would not care if we gad jobbed the Spurs via the refs and got an NBA Championship.

    May all the people involved burn forever after, or at least until we win a championship, whichever comes first.

    From what he said, it sounds like it was the officiating crew who made the decision, not a league-wide conspiracy. In this case.
