B1G "asks" TV Teddy Valentine to not work 2 games

Submitted by CalifExile on January 7th, 2018 at 2:39 PM

From Mlive:

"On Wednesday, Valentine put himself in an unnecessary spotlight once again when he showed up North Carolina's Joel Berry, who was trying to ask about a missed call. Valentine, always the showman on the court, turned his back on the veteran.

"As a result, Valentine told The Athletic, he was asked by the Big Ten not to work two of his scheduled games this weekend: Friday's Wisconsin-Rutgers game, and today's clash between No. 1-ranked Michigan State and Ohio State."

Beilein decides to hang it up, I hope for his last regular season game with TV Ted he goes full Bob Knight on him, screaming, jumping up down, cursing and topping it off by chucking a chair. That would be epic.

You forgot the most important part in all of this

After crush of online criticism, veteran official Ted Valentine says he's considering retirement. “I’m thinking about retiring,” Valentine said. “I’ve had enough of people blowing up stuff. I think I’ve had a stellar career, and I think it’s time to get ready to walk away.”

I'm pretty sure there would be a nationwide celebration if that happened. LINK

"It was just something that happened in the battle of the game. It's not really worth talking about"

Telling quote. What ref gets caught up in the heat of the game? Its his job to do the opposite.
