Etsy Shop Is Selling A "Duke Got Robbed" Tee Shirt After The Kansas Loss

If you're a Duke fan, then you already have your credit card out to cop this t-shirt, but if you're not... well, you're probably crying foul.

File this under peak Blue Devil fandom: There's a shop on Etsy.com selling a "DUKE WAS ROBBED" shirt for $14.00.

The shirt is in reference to a questionable call during Duke's overtime loss to Kansas in the Elite Eight. With the Blue Devils up by one with a little under three minutes left on the clock, Jayhawks guard Malik Newman drove to the basket and collided with Duke's Wendell Carter. Carter was called for a blocking foul, which also caused him to foul out of the game.

Carter's feet were clearly outside the restricted area, but he appeared to lean back, which may have been the reason why Newman wasn't called for a charge. However, a defender doesn't have to be completely motionless in order to draw a charge.

Despite the controversial call, the tee can be seen as a little ironic given that Duke is often criticized for always having calls go its way.

In fact, during that very same game, fans were up in arms after Grayson Allen wasn't called for an apparent travel on a jam that put the Blue Devils up by three in the first half.

Given that Kansas is still dancing, do you have sympathy for Duke concerning the questionable late call or do you think the shirt is over the top?
