QUILLIN-JACOBS REFEREE LESSON

QUILLIN-JACOBS REFEREE LESSON

I am not sure if much was learned about either Daniel Jacobs or Peter Quillin on December 5.  I do know that referee Harvey Dock is definitely not ready for the big time.  He is a trigger-happy stoppage ref, who is robbing fans of the finis...
