Kentucky Fans Are Giving Scathe Reviews To The Roofing Business Of The Referee That Officiated Their Loss
It takes a special type of loser to leave harshly worded written reviews of businesses on Facebook. It also takes a special kind of loser to internet stalk an NCAA official that called a game where the outcome didn't work out in their favor. You can probably guess what I think about the people that seek out the referees that they think wronged them just to publicly criticize the business that they haven't even used before on Facebook.
That being said, I don't feel bad for John Higgins. He asked for the backlash that he's getting online. I'd be willing to bet that in reality he's at least a 3.5-star shingle layer, because I'm pretty sure that below average roofers ruin houses and homes thus making them 0-star roofers. Still, it was his choice to use his ridiculously underappreciated public platform as a marketing tool for his livelihood. The only time someone wants to know a referee's name is when they are prepping themselves for a lifetime of directing irrational hatred toward them. No one is googling John Higgins - and ultimately stumbling upon the "rooferees" - because he called an extremely fair game. Consistent whistle blowing won't have incensed college kids holding you in high regard as a person, but even a hint of bias - whether it's completely fabricated in their own head or not - will have incensed college kids trying to ruin any aspect of your life made available to them.
I'm not defending the people that - ironically enough - want John Higgins to end up without a roof over this head because obviousssssly it was his fault that John Calipari didn't call a timeout before the game winning shot. However, advertising himself as someone that also works in thee most disrespected profession is equally as indefensible as far as promotional efforts go.
