"You'll know how I feel about the officials and tonight I really have no faith in them," George told the IndyStar. "I've been warning them all night what (Henderson's) going to do, stuff he's doing and they allow the (expletive) to go on. He was throwing jabs and punches at my stomach all night and I didn't retaliate until late in the game when they weren't doing (expletive) about it."

"So he pulled me down, I get double technical for doing nothing and then he throws an elbow at my neck and I get another tech for nothing?" George said. "I really don't have no respect and nothing is there for the officiating. (Expletive) officiating job. I don't care about him. It's the fact that they let him do that. That's the problem I have."
