I'm not saying the referees were looking for an excuse to toss Mayo, but some refs are better then others. Umpires are the same way. Some of them love the attention. Theres one guy in the Ohio High School Circuit that calls pitches as loud as he can while telling the batter where the pitch actually was.
Instead of "strikkkkkkeeee one". It's "strikkkkkkkkkeeeeeeee that ball was on the inside corner right at the knee number 7." EVERY SINGLE TIME! Then when its a ball he doesnt say anything! Talk about distracting for players! He must have pictures of somebodys daughter.
