Maryland president: North Carolina scandal merits 'death penalty'

  Maryland president: North Carolina scandal merits 'death penalty' Since 2010, the North Carolina athletic department has had hanging over it a dark cloud of allegations that threatens to rain down severe NCAA sanctions at any time. Since 2010, the North Carolina athletic department has had hanging over it a dark cloud of allegations that threatens to rain down severe NCAA sanctions at any time.

C . B . Bucknor called that an out and had to be overruled by an umpire at the other end of the stadium. It was so bad that Bucknor ’s call on a play that occurred in left field, had to be overruled by the first base umpire .

I started this page last year when watching a game he was umpiring and then another shortly thereafter. C . B . Bucknor is a Major League Baseball Umpire that is known for blowing calls and totally erratic strike calling behind the plate.

C.B. Bucknor must be trying to give us the belief that we can become MLB umpires. Because I have to imagine you or I would be way more competent at the job than this guy.

After almost ruining the end of the Nationals-Braves game Tuesday night, Bucknor came back for night two of his “Incredibly Incompetent Tour” of the major leagues.

While working third base on Wednesday night, Bucknor again bailed out the Braves with a bad call as he ruled a one-hopper hit by Bryce Harper toward Emilio Bonifacio as an out.

Umpire CB Bucknor faces backlash for terrible call

  Umpire CB Bucknor faces backlash for terrible call Umpire CB Bucknor faced some backlash on Tuesday night after making a horrendous call to give the Atlanta Braves a second chance against the Washington Nationals. Chase d’Arnaud was up for the Braves with the bases loaded and two outs in the 9th, with his team trailing 3-1. Facing a 1-2 count, d’Arnaud swung and clearly missed a pitch that bounced in the dirt.

Home plate umpire C . B . Bucknor had called a foul ball on d’Arnaud’s swing. I stayed on a fastball and unfortunately didn’t get a hit.” The Nationals apparently weren’t happy that the Braves got another chance to win the game on a blown call .

It’s now starting to look like umpire C . B . Bucknor has it out for the Nationals, because it’s hard to imagine that he’s this bad of an official. After blowing a strike-3 call behind home plate on Tuesday, Bucknor went back to sucking less than 24 hours later, and made another ridiculous call that went

Yes, that was ruled an out. A one-hopper that fell and bounced a couple feet before landing in Bonifacio’s glove was ruled an out. Forget about the zoomed in replay angle everyone; in SunTrust Park other than the person who made the call thought that was an out. It was so bad that Bucknor’s call on a play that occurred in left field had to be overruled by the first base umpire. That’s when you know you made a bad call.

I have sympathy for officials because they’re human and make mistakes but even I can’t defend someone making two horrific calls in consecutive nights. I mean seriously, if I was as incompetent at my job as C.B. Bucknor is with his, I would hope my bosses would have the decency to fire me. Or at the very least, let me know that I suck at my job and need to improve or else I’ll be fired.

Nastase ejected from Romania Fed Cup match after tirade

  Nastase ejected from Romania Fed Cup match after tirade Romania Fed Cup captain Ilie Nastase was thrown out of the venue hosting Saturday's World Group II playoff against Britain after abusive comments toward players and the umpire led to play being briefly suspended. The 70-year-old former top-ranked Nastase also publicly hurled insults at a British journalist in Constanta, a day after apparently making racially offensive comments about Serena Williams' recently announced pregnancy.The International Tennis Federation launched an investigation as the organization's president, David Haggerty, condemned Nastase for his ''unacceptable behavior.

Clearly blind umpire C . B . Bucknor blows another call . C . B . Bucknor called that an out and had to be overruled by an umpire at the other end of the stadium.

Unsurprisingly, Bucknor was slayed in social media for the bad call.

I’m afraid to imagine what Bucknor could possibly come up with for a third edition. Hopefully when Braves and Nationals players talk about the game and talk about Bucknor’s abilities as an umpire, Major League Baseball takes it easy when it comes to any fines for criticizing officials. Because for what happened over the past two nights, they’re completely justified.
