Kentucky fans cross the line by trashing referee John Higgins’ business on Facebook | For The Win
We always love the passion of sports fans – and college sports fans tend to be fiercely loyal and vocal during March Madness, but there comes a point when it just gets too personal.
As Chicago roofing contractors, we are grateful for every good review that we get, and it’s too bad that one game will affect Higgins’ business for a long time to come.
In every close game, there are moments that fans can pick apart as major swings. In the case of Kentucky fans, the officiating from referee John Higgins had Big Blue Nation up in arms. Higgins made a series of questionable foul calls that certainly came back to bite the Wildcats. But after the loss, Kentucky fans took their anger too far. They went after Higgins’ livelihood.
Higgins owns John Higgins Weatherguard, Inc., which is a roofing company based out of Omaha, Neb. Since NCAA officials aren’t paid full-time, many of them hold regular jobs when they’re not officiating. In the case of a roofing company, reviews are a huge tool for prospective clients as they hire a roofer. Well, Kentucky fans have spent the past couple days trashing the review section of Higgins’ company Facebook page.
