    i have never seen such terrible refereeing as at the murfee center this year. i truly believe that if dyer county wasnt so astonished by the refs the outcome would have been alot different. all dyer county foul to foul ratios were lopsided. i know i counted 10 traveling no calls in the first half against fulton. dont get me wrong fultons a great team. but to watch dyer county play with pro precission all year , and then go to state to have to play against the refs too, actually saddened me. congrats fulton. the mitchell game was nice, but dyer county with fair refs was deffinately # 1 any day. TSSAA you should be imbarrased to send out incompetent refs to cheat these kids. shame on you. get it together.
