Fisher and Golden both have legitimate gripes with this crew tonight but yet they will stop short of outwardly criticizing them when speaking with media.I don't get why coaches don't speak out about it and force the hand of the conference. Take the fine and make the point.
It has reached a point where each and every game is heavily influenced by crews that fail to correctly do their job.

LET IT FLY CHRISTOPHER!!!
Bout time you guys get fired up about something!
I would take the fine, and just go off on a rant on the officials. They are making milions, so a little thousand dollar fine should not hurt them
Can they be fined by the ACC?
I know it's universally thought (among head coaches) that blaming the refs = makes you a whiny puss...
I believe they can be fined. I also understand the idea that you bite your tongue, but this game is being broadcast to a national audience and being officiated by a crew not deserving pee wee.
There is no question the ACC refs have been going downhill, compared to the first 10-years we played in the conference. It's really making the conference look amateur... Between the crappy teams and crappy officiating, the teams in this conference are likely to start having some major recruiting pains.... if they don't reel this in.
To suck this bad after the Miami game last year... it's unbelievable.
It really is embarrassing and one of the reasons why the ACC is not taken seriously. It's looks like a Mac game on Friday night with teams componsating with the refs. Still wondering about waisome's pass int and smiths offensive pass int
Saban would be ripping someone's ass over this.
What's worse are the announcers. Why do they bite their tongue, when they see obvious bad call after bad call. I mean sometimes they'll say something about it but they never truly call out refs. Even in the NFL with the replacement refs, the guys in the booth would always stop short from out right calling them out even though they were drastically affecting the game.
We got to see the first hip check offensive pass interference call tonight. Be glad you could witness it.
I know ... what the crap was that call - Total garbage
and FSU will AGAIN send a tape to the ACC with the numerous bad calls....and again the ACC will call and apologize off record......and it will happen again next week. Rince repeat.
The acc as a football conference and their refs are absolute garbage. Both Jimbo and Golden were pissed at them because they sucked so bad. We absolutely HAVE to get out of this horrible conference it is like an albatross around our neck. Back in the Jeff Bowden days we felt like we were fighting with one hand tied behind our back because he was such a liability...is this not equally as bad?
Now the acc refs are pulling us down, down, down...they have cost us in every single acc game this year and it is getting to the point of exasperation.

I've been screaming this forever. Throw a knockout on live tv. Bring up Swofford too and let it be known that this is inexcusable. Just Go Big and take the Fine.
