Asp Berger

Some of my US focused readers may be familiar with controversial College Basketball referee Karl Hess. A couple of years, he achieved some notoriety, and later a telling off, by ejecting a couple of former North Carolina State players from their seats in the stand for "excessive demonstration on several calls".

This season, he has continued to piss off home fans, leading the category of Largest Home Foul Margin at -4.1 points a game - not the kind of statistic to trigger a bet, but it's a check mark that it doesn't hurt to have on your side.
Last Sunday, Hess allegedly said to a Wake Forest fan - a former board of trustees vice chairman:
"When I'm older, I want to sit in your seat & watch your Egyptian ass ref a game" 
during a home loss to Louisville. Never mind that the gentleman in question is actually Indian.
Uncle Rudolf, coincidentally born in Alexandria, Egypt, would have been proud.
