There’s a reason why Clevelanders have an ingrained aversion to referees—more so than nearly all other NFL fan bases. For starters, see December 16, 2001, otherwise known as BottleGate.

Needing a win against the Jackson Jaguars in order to keep hope alive for a postseason, Cleveland was down 15-10 with only 1:08 left on the clock. And at fourth and two, the Browns had no choice to go for it. Quarterback Tim Couch lined up and delivered what appeared to be a three-yard reception to receiver Quincy Morgan, giving Cleveland the crucial first down. Initially ruled a completed pass, referee Terry McAulay attempted to call for a review, but Couch had already gotten to the line for the next play and spiked the ball to make it second down—thus, under NFL rules, preventing the referees from revisiting the catch, now two plays in the past.Regardless of guidelines and to Cleveland’s dismay, McAulay reviewed the play and ruled it an incomplete pass, and with it, came a Cleveland turnover, which all but sealed a Jaguars’ win. The officiating, some of the worst in NFL history, incited pure pandemonium. The Dawg Pound responded by launching a tsunami of empty bottles and trash onto the field, and the hailstorm of debris forced the teams to evacuate. McAulay called the game, but 20 minutes later, the NFL commissioner rang up the locker rooms and informed the teams the game had to be played out. Terrified to take the field, the Jaguars ended up running out the clock for the win and cementing one of the most infamous endings to any NFL game.
