Does anyone know how to file a complaint to the TSSAA about refs. Witnessed a really biased game against Gibson Co. It's bad when Obion Co. Fans come up and tell ya that you got screwed. Would really appreciate the information. Thanks.

I wasn't at the game, but I highly doubt the refs made a 20 point difference in the game. Coach Hart would have to talk to the AD and the AD would have to file a complaint. If I heard correctly, Joyner from Milan was one of the refs. Gibson has had him so many times over the years, it will be impossible to never have him again as a ref. Although he does make some bad calls, as do all refs, I think he's fairly decent for a high school ref. I'm a big time Gibson Co. fan and I wished they could've done better, however let's not show bad sportsmanship by complaining about refs. Gibson Co. has die hard fans and it always sucks to lose, however appreciate what Haynes, Khadijah, Joyce and Ambur have done for Gibson Co. basketball over their 4 years. Afterall, they were a part of the 2 state championships.

Very true! The senior girls have done a great job over the last 4 yrs.. Had another 20+ win season this year, just wish one of the 2 wins gc hax over westview this season was tonight but westview was just better tonight even though there was some calls ahainst gc. ladies shouldnt hang their head, Coach Hart has done a great job with them the last 2 years and will continue it in the future even though it will be very tough after losing those 4 seniors and a lot if young players left on the team. Were still proud of the lady pioneers!

I definetly agree about the seniors playing so hard tonight. If anyone showed bad sportsmanship it was Joyner. A Gibson Co. fan made a comment and Joyner heard it. He stopped the game and then blamed the wrong people for saying it. What was hilarious is that it was an Obion Co. fan he blamed. After that is was just all down hill. It just took the wind out of Gibson County's sails. As Joyner walked out he just smiled at the Gibson CO. fans. Irritated us so bad. I'm not saying it was all ref's faults but there definitley were some terrible calls. I just wish we could have went out on a better note this year.

Donny Joyner is one of the best referees in not only West TN but the entire state. You do not believe that? Drive south to Jackson or west to Memphis and watch their officiating crews. Oh, wait, we get to see Memphis almost every year in Region play; just watch them closely. many of them do not even know what a "drop-step" is by a post player. As another poster stated, I doubt if Joyner commited any fouls, made any 3's or FT's for Westview, etc.GC girls won 20 games this season?

I remember being in the 'Boro' back when your asst coach(coach's wife" was a player and GC lost by what most thought was an obvious foul on her that wasnt called. Her mother("die-hard fan") went to the ledge and threw her pompons at the referees. If memory is correct, that basket would have just tied the game and there seems to be the unwritten rule of no OT's at State altho there have been a few. For GC, remember the Chicago Cubs fan lament, "just wait til next year".

Correction. It wasn't the refs. It was one ref. Who should have been a professional and not punished gc girls bc he didn't like one comment. Get over it and act the way he was supposed to. No gc might not have won anyway and no one is mad that they lost. Just furious that they wasn't given a fair chance. Yes they have a few turnovers and etc but when Joyner let westview plow over a girl didn't call it and then another ref calls it how pathetic is that? He probably is a good ref until u call him out on something he doesn't like. Obviously he didn't ref onions game like that and he didn't smile at ripely when they lost. Anyways basic point. Its ok they lost but not when they wasn't given a fair chance.

As the saying goes, maybe that particular call wasn't his to make and he was watching his area of the floor. Tell me more, maybe. Where did the action take place? Where was Donny on the floor? I'm certain it was a 3-man crew, correct? Where was the official that made that particular call?

It happened directly in front of him so I would say that would have been his to make.

sometimes what happens directly in front of you is the hardest call to see/make. maybe the other official making the call just didnt see it as Donny did..sometimes it's "no harm, no foul".And I doubt if his smiling at the GC fans was a way of telling them anything; maybe it was just a friendly smile as Donny smiles a lot.

Also, Haynes only had 2 points last night. It seems as if Westview made major emphasis on shutting Haynes down and they did that. I hate Gibson Co. lost, but today is a new day. This game should give the underclassmen more of a reason to push harder in the off-season. There's no reason that Gibson Co. can't get back to Murfreesboro within 2-3 years with the young talent that they have. Now that Gibson Co. is done, go support former GC players over at UTM! I'm sure McMillan would appreciate everyone in Gibson Co. coming out and supporting UTM for their last 1 or 2 home games and then even the OVC tournaments if you can make it.
