When your team is getting beat up by the refs in the regular season you complain in a civil way because it won't effect the rest of your year. When your team gets manhandled by the refs in a the playoffs all bets should be off. I wanted nate to not just imply he was unhappy about the disparity of calls. I wanted him to come out an call it what it was "bull $%&@" . This comment would certainly come with a penalty and fine, but it would also solve your ref problems. It forces the refs to call it more even because if they don't they look like they are spiting you and that is not what the refs want. By putting the pressure on the refs to call a game that at least appears fair you make them choose between looking biased or angry and actually just calling it more fair.
Now I know thats just my opinion, but if the attempt by nate after the game was to get results then I really think he should have gone the extra step just to force the issue.
