Referee’s Business Attacked Following Final Four Fallout
What a foul response. By all accounts, John Higgins didn’t have his best day when he refereed the Kentucky-North Carolina Elite Eight game Sunday. But for making a few questionable calls, some irate Kentucky fans decided death threats were an appropriate response, while others targeted his Nebraska roofing business. On Facebook, hundreds of angry 1-star reviews quickly left Higgins’ company with a 1.7 rating. As news spread, however, positive reviews managed to boost it back to 3.5 stars. Kentucky released a statement reminding fans to be good sports.
