OK, I try to always be positive on this site. Always try to be polite and wish the other teams well, but I'm over this whining about the officials crap. I've seen hundreds of high school football games. I've been on the chain gang for 15 years at Bedford, I've coached 30 years, all be it Jr. league but none the less, and I work on the sideline for the NFL at colts home games also, I can guarantee you the officiating isn't any different on any field in the state, or country for that matter. I always hear people complain, but when I'm on the field, the visitors side, I hardly ever hear coaches complain. Yes coaches try to keep refs "honest" but that's the nature of the beast. I talked to the crew last night before the game, and he said the last time they were in Bedford was for a sectional final against Castle so I'm guessing that was 10 years ago or longer. My point is, Bedford nor any other HHC team, tries to hire refs to "help" out the home team. My sister was the A.D.'s secretary for the last 4 A.D.'s we've had and she hired officials for every event and she was more concerned about getting a crew to show up than anything else. Refs do this for one reason and one reason only and that's for the love of the game. If you think they are actually trying to screw your team you are totally out there. It's pretty sad you can't give Bedfords team credit for playing a hell of a game as did East, but you want to say you got screwed! And @fkfootball I call BS on the officials in basketball being from Lawrence county. Maybe for a JV game but not varsity. I only know of one ref from here that ever refs. varsity basketball or umpires baseball here and we all moan when we see him here because he's so biased against us it's obvious he's doing it on purpose to keep from being blamed for cheating. So that being said, I've enjoyed this site, I don't comment much but I read weekly, even in off months, because I think high school football is the purest and best sport of all, but I'm over it. Thanks for keeping involved with the game and keep it going, but me personally, I'm done with the immaturity.
