Refs were horrendous

25 posts in this topic

I don't remember seeing that many horse manure calls since the replacement refs were in there. Ticked me off til no end. I wanted to reach through the TV and strangle someone.

They definitely did their best to keep the titans in the game. I understand there will always be a couple bad/questionable calls every game, but today was a pathetic attempt at officiating. I hope they all get reamed new ones.

I said my peace on them in another thread but at least the replacement refs had the excuse of being replacements. This is why I didn't really care about the regular refs back yes some of them are really good but honestly the only difference between some of them (like the ones today) and the replacement refs is the spotlight that was shined on the replacement refs.

Well the refs do get rated/evaluated each game and the least missed calls are used in the playoffs and they get the extra paychecks, so there is incentive to get the calls right, but I saw 4 terrible calls go Titans way, I thought also they wanted to keep the Titans in the game...not like days of old, replays are in HD and super slow motion and stopped pics you can see everything, even the huge stadium screens so there is no excuse to get turnovers and scores wrong...No excuses!!!!!

Anybody here watch Nascar? Even when the cars are running 100 to 200 mph depending on the tracks they can show the wheels barely moving around corners and clear as in normal speed, HD and flat screens have changed sport to like unbelievable!!!!! So with the technology all calls should be gotten right in review, everybody sees it. In 08 I bought a 32" samsung 720 LCD flat screen "was and emergency and was 900 bucks and that's all I had" I can get a 60 inch now for what I paid back then for a 32 :}LOL and went from a 27" RCA tube TV that burt out and it was like going from the 50's to 2008 :}LOL

True, but don't forget McAfee's punt inside the one yd line that led to C. Vaughn's pick 6. There was a false start on us that wasn't called that play. Lots of bad calls, majority (but not all) against us.

We overcame them, like a team is supposed to do.

Refs will make mistakes and dumb calls. No excuse, the better teams find ways to overcome "circumstances"

This is true, but how many refs make on the order of 6 or 7 really bad calls in a game? This game was rank with terrible calls.

also dont forget the penaltie on bethea which was ridiculous, the penalty on Foukou which was agian ridiculous...on 3rd down both of them.

I though while the first Arians challenge was premature, it was a drop IMO. Also wasnt TY knee down before the feet touch out of bounds?

the only call that went our way was the false start on special teams i think

And these are the "real" refs ... LOL! As I said from the start of the season the media created and fueled a story about "replacemen" refs ... least they had a valid excuse for missing a call or two - those guys out there right now are pathetic and without an excuse, yet the media is mummmmmmm.

I was screaming at the TV about that catch by TY. He had the ball secured with a knee down before he went out of bounds. I can't be too upset about Arians throwing the flag on Wrights reception but unless it could be a turnover or something like that you HAVE to hold on to that challenge especially that early in the game. That lead to TY's reception being not being challenge-able nor Chris Johnson's fumble. Those are possession changing plays, Wrights was not as I'm pretty sure that play was on 2nd down. Arians baffles me at times with his management "calls".

While I agree that yesterday's game was as badly officiated as I have seen in awhile, remember that Seattle is in the hunt for the playoffs and could even get a first round bye because of the replacement refs. Even if we had lost as a result of the bad calls yesterday, we still could control our own destiny.

Well Mortinsen on ESPN just took up for the refs. He said they were never shown the repay shot that clearly showed Luck's knee down. While I agree the refs were bad , the producers (CBS) get to decide what replays to show the refs. This should be changed. It has cost us for years. CBS has an agenda.

Calls that could have killed us yesterday.

1. Wright dropped it and they reviewed still missed it

2. TY's catch they missed. Caught it in bounds

3. CJ's obvious Fumble

4. Luck's pick 6

5. 41's PI that was great D

So CBS has it out for the Colts? Please.

Not CBS per se, but I can tell you from my time of watching the Colts (every game) the producers have not shown the correct replay many many times. coincidence? Does not happen on other networks. Just an observation. My main point was TV producers should not be handling this. why not an official?

The point about a producer handling the replay, I can appreciate. The rest is absolute nonsense.

    • Okay, you're right. I incorrectly flipped it. I will own that. It was still a boring game IMO probably because I knew the fins were gonna suck & they lived up to my lowered expectations.    I just don't see the need for TNF except for the owners to rake in more dough. If INDY's on will I watch it? Absolutely. I accept TNF is here to stay, but I hate it because it accelerates injury risk if INDY just played Sunday & now must get ready for a short week to hit another player a few days later.

    • I appreciate NFLfan & Gramz's well written posts on paying proper respect when the Natl. Anthem is bing sung. All I ask is that fans stand & listen in silence when the Star Spangled Banner is being performed. Taking off a hat & placing your hand on your heart is not mandatory to me. Just stand & give the song it's proper reverence IMO.    I guess I cut fans slack on other gestures [hat & heart] because to me all that matters is giving our veterans & active service men & women as well as the fallen your respect & undivided attention. JMO.    I admire parents & relatives that instruct family members to remove their hats of course, the the heart gesture or placement itself isn't all that significant to me because when I grew up with the Pledge Of Allegiance in school as a little kid you get to a point where it feels like you are going thru the motions rather than a personal belief in what you are doing by virtue of repetition & routine.

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
