Trogan-to-English: Lame Excuses

 

Once again Lane Kiffin, the gift to linguists that keeps on giving.  Read his article at the url below and its translation.

The officials at Stanford didn't start the clock after Troy took the lead.  "I expressed myself to them, my disappointment at that."

Those around me are quite accustomed to disappointment.

"It's such a game-changing moment."

Like an unnecessary roughness call can be.

He wondered about the discrepancy in calls -- Stanford 3 penalties, SC 8.

The calls are supposed to be even, even if we commit twice as many offenses.  We are SC, and we are entitled to special treatment.  Especially when we pay above market prices.

"I'm going to have to ask Coach Harbaugh..." how his team doesn't get penalized.

Yo, Jim, what's your deal?  You're kidding me, you recruit students and they are smart enough to not make dumb penalties?  C'mon, man, tell me how much you pay the refs.

He filed a complaint with the Pac-10 about a number of calls...

This conference has always awarded controversial calls to SC, in fact calls that weren't even controversial.  We are entitled.  We own the police, I mean the refs.  It's all the officials' fault.  Don't blame me or, more accurately, Dad, for letting the scholars race down the field in one minute to win the game.  (Like we did at home in the Huskies revenge game -- we are consistent.
