Refs screwed up again

Recommended Posts

Even with the bogus calls, the Colts are the least penalized team so far with 11 penalties for 75 yards.

Colts got some call too.  One of their drives was extended by a bad PI call too.  It evens out more times than not.

 

With that said the refs have to get these things right.

After what the NFL has allowed refs to do to New Orleans- inc this weekend- anything is possible.  I am constantly amazed by the competence.  I blame the owners: the NFL is a $15B/yr business, but the owners are so cheap that even now most refs are doing a part time job and not performing a serious profession with proper training.  

 

Insecure people tend to make more mistakes. Personally, I think the continued incorrect usage of replay (trying to correct calls to be most perfect ie Ebrons catch) has made refs go from bad to worse.

 

IMHO replay should only overturn calls when there is clear undisputed evidence (like the PO in the championship game) and refs should be properly trained and paid.

You don't think 200k a year is being properly paid?

It's as if we tune in every Sunday and watch the refs dictate the

outcome of games instead of the coaches and players.

It is starting to make me nauseated watching the corruption that

is going on in sports anymore.

Ok wow good point I guess I should have simply said "properly trained" should have looked that up.

It would seem good vision would be a problem so you are probably over qualified.

I quit drinking alcohol when I was 31 but prior to that, esp. the college days, I went through a lot of that! It wasn't just that it was cheap, I actually kind of liked it! :)

Oh no you didn't, lol! Had some run ins with the Mad Dog back in the day, along with Night Train, Thunderbird,  and Old English, those were the days, hahaha! I didn’t really seek out the MD, it just always seemed to find me, lol!

What about the bogus PI called on Wilson also.

Probably making up for the extremely generous spot they have JB on the run to get the first down   He was clearly a yard short and they got the 1st down.  

 

It goes both ways.  And as someone posted earlier the Colts are the least penalized team in the league.  

 

Soooooo.....

I'm old (at least I get senior discounts). My vision was just tested at 20/15 without glasses. I'm a professional referee in a different sport making far less than $200K. I can tell you it takes hard work refining your understanding of the rules and a lot of practice to be good at refereeing. That said, NFL refs need to up their game. It's getting out of hand, and almost embarrassing.

Don’t forget my drink of choice as a youth........Brass Monkey! Had some long mornings following those nights for sure. :) Sorry to mods for not being Colts related*

    • You said nothing wrong at all. There's always going to be people who don't agree with you then try to attack instead of communicate. 
    • No worries here. That was actually how I interpreted what you said...but I can understand how others might have interpreted it differently.
    • Maybe the pass attempts will still be high, but we won't be seeing the Marino, Fouts, Big Ben , Arians/Coryell type of bombs away attacks, IMO.  Its going to be more underneath stuff, which requires DBs having certain skills that are more pronounced than the skills needed to defend the offenses of the past.   Maybe it was an anomaly,  but Watson's ball velocity was like 50 mph at his combine.  Hardly even NFL caliber.  So while he may be able to chuck it with accuracy down field a few times, he doesn't have the arm to run a deep out or bombing attack style of offense, and he has to open up passing game with the threat of his legs and escapability.  Even that also requires DBs with tackling skills. 
    • I think the 3 in a row was in response to what would define the greatest team in the salary cap era. Irsay did say he wanted a team with multiple SB wins when Luck was drafted, and some felt like he was throwing shade at Peyton, maybe yes, maybe not.   There were instances I defended Peyton where it felt like he had little margin for error in playoff games and then instances where I felt he missed some reads and got "happy playoff feet Peyton" in key moments leading to "playoff Peyton" jokes. It was a mixed bag with him but the ultimate stat to me was Peyton's record vs playoff teams in the regular season hovered around .500, against playoff Ds. So, when that record manifested itself in the playoffs, it was not surprising. But people were surprised because a lot of our 12 win seasons were padded with wins against middle of the road teams and the Peyton hype led to higher expectations too.    Plus, the other ignored aspect is with a lot of teams on par at the playoff level, the differences in coaching shined a bit more come playoff time and I do not believe we had a great coaching staff on defense and special teams consistently. Then, they let them play with a little more contact from DBs in the Peyton era come playoff time than the regular season, which was disruptive for a timing offense with a "not so" rocket arm from Peyton, even in his prime compared to a Favre or even Brady.   Factor all of the above factors, our playoff record with Peyton was as expected. The only time we beat a #1, #2 and #3 scoring D was when we ran well, giving our undersized but speedy D a shot to play at max. efficiency and allowing us to minimize our weak special teams.
    • Pathetic division with tough schedule against NFC West and AFC North.. then Eagles and Cowboys have to play top teams of NFC North and NFC South..   WHOOOOOOOOOOOFFFFFFFFFFFF   Forget about it, this division is going to be even worse!   But remember, NFC East never had a repeat champion in a decade or so.   Close your eyes, it's not good for viewing.   Cowboys 8-8. Eagles 8-8. Giants 4-12 Redskins 1-15   21 wins, 43 losses.   Favorite spanked kids of all the NFL.   Redskins at least get the #1 overall draft pick, which they missed last draft to finally replace Haskins.
