Remembering Black Sunday, 1980

June 1, 2016, will be the 36th anniversary of Black Sunday, when referee Toros Kibritjian and linesman Gordon Arrowsmith conspired to perpetrate the most blatant fix of a professional sports match ever recorded in the history of guilty man. No, that is not an overstatement  :)

Gary Darrell and Carmine Marcantonio battle Cosmos Eskandarian for ball.
Bill Irwin was one of many to question the competency of the officiating crew assigned at the match.
