ACC REFEREE HAS A WAY WITH WORDS

FITSNews – November 27, 2007 – Until today, we always saw college football referees as deserving targets of harmful projectiles – particularly if they work for the Atlantic Coast Conference, and particularly if those projectiles included batteries and Molotov cocktails.

All of that changed, however, when we saw THIS VIDEO of ACC referee Ron Cherry calling the first ever “giving him the business” penalty during last weekend’s Maryland-N.C. State football game.

We not sure what “giving him the business” means (or where it is in the NCAA rulebook), but it doesn’t sound like something they let you do on national television.

UPDATE – It appears that the term “giving him the business” comes from the NFL, in particular this 1986 Buffalo Bills-New York Jets game … (special hat-tip to our bud Benjamin Andre for giving us the scoop).

Ron Cherry is an idiot. I have had to endure his incompetance for many years. He should be in pee wee league.

On an unrelated note, did you write this article from The State? A troublesome direct mail piece, Romney changing positions on abortion, and a quote from Terry Sullivan… I think I’ve read this here before.
