Local Hamilton native and CFL Referee Ken Murphy always, always, always calls a bad game that works against the Tiger-Cats. In last nights game against the Riders, Ken Murphy missed at least five good Holding calls on the offensive line of the Riders, I mean the Holds are so obvious even TSN picked up on it, with Rod Black and Dwayne Ford highlighting them on the teleplay.
Certain teams in the CFL get away with murder like Riders, Argo's Montreal and so on but when the CFL referees are so bold like Ken Murphy to work on behalf of the Riders they certainly do not create a level playing field for all teams, however in Murphy's case he has not called one good game that Hamilton has played that would even be called anything close to a level playing field, just go back and watch the films of every Ti-Cat game Murphy has been the referee and you will see, Murphy is a Bush League Ref at best.
Ken Murphy is from Hamilton, he used to be a touch football ref and that's where he should have stayed in touch football, he was even lousy at that game. He's the kind of ref who easily gets on your nerves like nails on a black board, he also allows the instigator to take the first shot however always penalizes the player defending himself. Ken Murphy will always allow Rob Murphy to take the first shot but penalize the other player. Maybe Ken and Rob are related? Who knows? Just watch out on Labour Day if Ken Murphy is the Ref, Rob Murphy will get away with everything, as the Argo's try to prance their way to another victory.
It's time for Tom Higgins Head of CFL officiating to step in and get Ken Murphy away from reffing Ti-Cat Games, last night against the Riders, his eyes where closed shut to the holding going on by the Rider Front line but wide open when Hamilton had the ball and called every play.
Get the message to Ken Murphy in the CFL, that the CFL must be a level playing field for all teams not the select few, maybe Hamilton wasn't in his Sports Select Picks last night, but there are a lot better refs handling flag football in the GTA for the kids, at least they are not as Bush league as Ken Murphy to call a game lopsided by one team or another, stop the bush league reffing and lets see a level playing field next game or I am all for the challenge flag being thrown on every play, at least I would know someone else is watching the play!!!
