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.

    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      We can go around and around about this but its going to all come down to that we disagree. That's fine. That happens. Your right I look more at what an O Lineman is in the moment (In this case a college prospect) and give my opinion based on what I see rather then looking at measurables and projecting how good he will be off of those. I mean that's a risk I'm just not willing to take in the 1st 3 rounds.   Granted sometimes It works out...But overall the odds are against it. I mean I don't want to land another Lance Louis(Yes I know he was in FA but going back to his pro day he had great measurables to) because staff liked his measurables and that he was big and could move....None of which helped Louis look like anything that remotely resembled an O Lineman that belonged on a roster   Take Jack Mewhort for example: He was a superior prospect coming out who do did not show all the athletic pro day/combine measurables and was our best O Lineman last year by a wide margin from start to finish because of fundamentals but athletically he is not in the same ball park as Clark minus Mewhorts better bench press numbers
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      There's been a change over the last decade or so.    Coaching staffs are now huge.    They're roughly twice the size of college coaching staffs.        More teaching is done on the pro level now because such poor teaching is being done on the college level.    So many colleges have gone to some version of the spread that lineman aren't coming in prepared for the NFL.  That's why there's been a change.      That's why Arizona basically gave Humphrey a complete redshirt year.   And the Colts may do the same with Clark.     It's what we did with Good last year.    He missed the first 10 games and only got in because Costanzo got hurt.       But more and better coaching on the NFL level has been happening and you've been completely unaware.   And the more you fight this,  and that's what you've been doing this entire thread,  the more it looks like you don't understand scouting.     Which is ironic because you like to think of yourself as a scout.     But, again,   there's more to scouting than looking at tape.....    
    • im not sure if I want to support football anymore...
      I haven't seen the movie personally, but I think there's more to the early retirements than simply concussion awareness. I believe the increasing prevalence of Internet access (esp. with cellphones) means it's easier than ever for someone to learn a new hobby for free in the comfort of their own living room. If I wanted to learn gardening (heaven forbid), I could go to YouTube, search up instructional videos, read non-bias authentic reviews on gardening products, post on gardening forums, download e-books, and watch live gardening videos on video streaming sites. I could even make some money off advertisements and sponsors, if I'm good enough.

      Check out Walter Thurmond -- he's retiring and plans to go into video/directing.
      http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000665832/article/walter-thurmond-28-retiring-after-six-nfl-seasons

      In that clip, the guy speaking for Walter mentions this is a trend we will start seeing -- young guys who spend a few years in the NFL, grab a few millions, then run with it to pursue a new passion. It's a scary slope and NFL scouts will have to take a hard look at 1st round young prospects to figure out if they really want to play football or if they're in it for quick cash.

      We're also seeing similar trends in millennials across the board -- young people who bounce from job to job. There's something about today's youth where they're more open to trying new things than content like their forefathers. Show me a millennial who is prepared to work 15+ years for a company; it's a rare thing! Hell, I worked 3.5 years at Burger King and my friends always ask me how I didn't go crazy (I'm 30 btw).

      As for concussions, there's a lot of jobs that have risk involved. These guys get paid millions. They're athletes. It goes with the territory, so I don't mean to sound cruel but I could care less about concussion awareness. There are a lot more dangerous jobs out there that pay far less.
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      History favors prospects that come in having a feel for fundamentals over those that don't. That's one of the reasons why so many fail. Poor fundamentals....which most coaches will say they don't have time in the pros to teach. They are in the business of winning football games or being fired sometimes the very next day, They are NOT in the business of teaching fundamentals. Most O Linemen have to have outside help these days because Fundamentals are not taught much at all in the pros...Multiple O Linemen have came forward and said that
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      I know.   And that's why I think you really don't understand scouting.         You understand looking at tape and evaluating.     But you seem unwilling to do the rest of the part of the evaluation.      And if you're not doing everything else,   then you don't understand scouting.   There's so much more than just looking at tape.     And please don't respond that you understand that.    Because in most every post your evaluation of a player --- any player --- consists of what you see on tape.   And you don't seem interested in everything else.....       That's your right.      But it doesn't make it right.     In fact it makes it wrong.....     And that's your right too.....   Oh well.....

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
