How does a clock not working affect the outcome of a game. The official time is kept on the field anyway.Frank Reagan wrote: ↑Sat Oct 13, 2018 5:16 pmThe officiating was poor, both ways I believe. The OVC assigns officials, so accusing Ironton of cheating is a moot point. Remember, those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Just ask Fairland what they think about the clock “mysteriously “ malfunctioning during the game at Coal Grove last year.
Fairland’s AD went ape on the officials after that game because of timing issues according to observers that were present. Fairland backers were insinuating a fix was on for weeks after the game.
How does a scoreboard clock going out only affect one team?
Once a Tiger, always a Tiger.
Not so fast my friend. FACT: The official time is not kept on the field unless the stadium clock malfunctions. If officials cheat, as being suggested on this thread, how easy would it be for an official to manipulate the time kept on the field? He could slow the clock if the home team is losing or speed it up if the home team is winning in a close one. Talk about the ability to cheat. That's what got Fairland's panties in a wad during the close affair at Patterson Field last year. I'm not saying it happened, but the opportunity for a fix was there.
No official wakes up and says, "Who am I gonna cheat tonight?", but they sure get accused, every night of the week.
Doing the right thing is rarely easy.
