Antonio McDyess was ejected in Friday nights game against the Bucks. Why did the soft spoken McDyess get booted? He called the Ref blind.
“The foul was just ridiculous, and I said (to Richardson), ‘You must be blind if you think that’s a foul,'” McDyess said. “And there’s plenty of times I’ve said that to refs, so it just must be certain ones you can say that to. He gave me a tech.
“Then I was looking at Chauncey (Billups), after a bad call, I didn’t know he (Richardson) was standing right in back of us, and I said to Chauncey, ‘Still blind,’ and he gave me another tech. I was like, ‘Shoot.’ So I’m in the locker room thinking I should have gotten my money’s worth.”
Richardson told Billups that “calling a referee blind was the same thing as calling a woman a bitch.”
“I was like, ‘Are you serious? That ain’t even close.'” McDyess said. “He’s just sensitive, man, I don’t know. But I think Sheedy had them all riled up before that happened.” The Detroit News
Come on, this dude has got to be kidding. Talk about being sensitive. I can’t believe that’s why he called those two quick techs on Dyess. But to say that calling a ref blind is like calling a woman a bitch is just laughable. As a woman myself I guess I could see how the comment could be justified because with talk like that he sounds like a little bitch.
