Agree. These refs are just an embarrassment to the Nfl. I mean they always preach the integrity of the game.  And this is what they put n the field.

A lot of "reversed" calls on the challenges, and they are forcing head coaches to unnecessary use their respecting challenges.

Goodell is a friggin egomaniac.

He will not budge an inch for the real refs until he's this "" close to getting run by the owners.

they watch 20-30 hours of film each week, too.  and travel to the games.

but this is not the issue.  the owners are trying to kick the refs off their defined benefits pension plan, which many companies have done to their workers.  except in the case of the nfl there appears to be no financial hardship which is causing it.  the owners see it happening to other unions and decided they should be able to keep a few extra thousands for themselves.

i expect they'll make a deal this week.  the "good" teams aren't getting all the calls like they usually do. that ought to open the eyes of some owners.

Some non-profit organization the NFL is. Can't even take care of the refs who's true value are being revealed in recent weeks. The bad calls are whatever to me, because there's always gonna be bad calls either way (just not as many) replacements or vets. Plus, I'm sure nobody complained when the replacement refs calls helped their bet.


The true fucked up part about it is that the game is going WAY to slow now. Too many skirmishes are breaking out during the game and the non-calls are making players susceptible to injury. And probably the worst part is that you KNOW that many of these guys are fans these teams and they seem confused about the rules of the game at times.

This is a bad look for the NFL right now. I wonder how much have the veteran refs been enjoying this.

Looks like the imaginary illegal contact calls are being distributed evenly this year...Even the Raiders are getting a fair shot !
