Blue Hills Regional AD Says Ref made a “Great Call”

This story has gotten a lot of national attention this week, and its well deserved. I’ve been following a lot of the backlash on it and if you’ve seen some of my recent posts about the Cathedral High School Senior who was called for taunting while scoring the teams would-be super bowl winning touchdown you understand whats going on. When I was reading the article on ESPN today I came across something I hadn’t seen before. Apparently the Blue Hills Regional AD was interviewed after the game and this was his take on it.

Blue Hills Regional Technical School athletic director and head football coach Ed Catabia told The Boston Globe on Sunday that the referee made “a great call, the right call.”We try and play by the rules, and the rule is ‘no celebrating,’ ” he said.

No celebrating? Seriously? Like how big of a pussy could this guy possibly be? I’m sure not a single player on his team has ever celebrated a big play before. I would have loved to see this happen to this idiot and then hear his reaction after the game; my bet is he would have a different opinion on it. I bet you could have interviewed almost any Blue Hills Regional player and they even were mature enough and wouldn’t have said it was a “great call”. This guy has to be one of the most asinine individuals around. It would be one thing to maybe refer to the call as justifiable based on the rules, but after your team steals a super bowl on some BS call you go out and say it was “great”. I would love to see a video of this interview. I can only picture him as some Sandusky look-alike smiling ear to ear after he knows damn right his team just stole a super bowl from the more deserving team. Christ, I really hope he somehow sees this article so he can realize how pathetic he is.

  1. I become disgusted with Blue Hills coach after these comments, and after reading an article in the Canton Patch about how he and his team are taking ” the high road ” on this controversy. The high road would be to refuse the win. Just because you take home a trophy, doesn ‘t automatically make you a winner. Taking home a trophy few people think you deserve makes you look small and unsportsmanlike.

    For the MIAA to defend the ref without an apology and to further paper over this outrage makes any sensible person wonder what else is hiding In this rat hole? There is a culture dissembling and obfuscation operating here that reminds me of Penn State. Young athletes deserve much better than this.
