Referee Bias in Alabama - Georgia SEC Championship Game

by Former football Referee

The referee on the Georgia sideline seemed to be biased, i do not know his name but i agree with Kevin Butler's comments after the game. The pass interference call in the end zone was clearly over the head of the Alabama player and the closest referee about 10 feet away did not call it. This was a big call in this ball game.

There were other calls in front of this referee such as an obvious block in the back and holding. I would like to think that this guy just had a bad day or should not be doing a game at this level. The Murray no call could have kept Alabama from a field goal before the half in what could have won the game for Georgia from the 8 yard line with one.

There was also a no call on pass interference on Malcolm Mitchell on the ALA sidelines he caught the pass that was not called. I am sure the SEC office will look at this closely.

Bad calls, how about the tip pass .Georgia was called for pass intference..said ball was tipped that was play before blocked field goal, Should have been first down with Bama scoring 7 not giving up 7..14 point swing ..pass in the end zone over the head but would not have been if georgia safety was not holding on for dear life.

As soon as I saw the off side penalty called against UGA on the blocked ALA punt early in the 3rd pd, I knew the fix was in. The refs know exactly what they are doing. I turned the channel and glad I did. Sadly I was not the least bit surprised by the outcome.
