The referees for Saturday’s game have been released tonight and the news is not good from the average UK fan’s perspective. Tony Greene, Jamie Luckie and Michael Stephens will be calling the game between the Cats and the Cards on Saturday. Everyone knows Greene’s name as he is notorious for making UK fans angry. Coaches tend to like him and he has a good reputation, but when questionable calls have come UK’s way, Tony Greene does seem to be disproportionately involved. As one of my followers on Twitter also notes however, Luckie should also not be considered a treat. In two years of calling UK games, the Cats are just 5-4 when he is in the building, meaning if nothing else, he is a bad luck charm.
It still shouldn’t matter, as UK is a lot better than the Cards, but it isn’t the best news.
