Passing the buck on video scoreboard clip

From the East Valley Tribune, an article about the rivalry between Arizona and San Jose of the Arena Football League:

"During the 2002 ArenaBowl in San Jose, the Saber-Cats showed on the JumboTron a play from the regular season finale between the teams.

When the sack was replayed on the JumboTron, the sound of a referee’s whistle was heard well before Evans got to Grieb. The inference: Evans" cheap-shotted Grieb.

"It wasn’t a cheap shot," Nudo said. "That (the video replay) was a cheap shot. We asked the stadium operations guy about it, and he blamed the owner. We asked the owner, and he blamed the stadium operations guy. Nobody wanted to own up to it."
