You staters are unbelievable cry babies possibly worse then holes fans

A ref threw out 2 legends from state for doing absolutely nothing any worse than what he would hear from a regular fan, if laettner would have gotten tossed im sure you would sit there like a good little schoolboy.

Because it involves the program, if refs were randomly tossing fans in cameron duke fans would be the same way.

Debbie Yow's statement:

"Throughout this afternoon and evening, I have been seeking clarification from the ACC office regarding the reason for the ejection of two fans today during our men's basketball game against Florida State. I have spoken to Commissioner John Swofford and Karl Hicks, Associate Commissioner for Basketball Operations, regarding our concerns and our need for clarification as to why this occurred. We expect fair treatment of our fans at State athletic events.

Although ACC rules prohibit coaches, players and administrators from publicly taking exception to officiating, the ACC Office has agreed to issue a statement regarding the ejections and the circumstances surrounding them later tonight. We will not have further comment regarding this situation until we have had a chance to review the statement issued by the league."

Followed by this nugget from John Clougherty (ACC Supervisor of Officials):

"Under Rule 10, when circumstances warrant, an official has the authority to request home game management to eject fans when the behavior, in the officials' judgement, is extreme or excessive. It's unfortunate in this instance that ACC protocol of communicating directly with the home game management was not followed, and instead, a building security officer was solicited. We will re-communicate this policy with all officials to ensure proper protocol is followed."
