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.

 WOW!!!! Where do I sign up? Do you know what the qualifications are? A pulse? Good “vision?” I’m at 20/20 so I have that going for me!

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 mean like being instantly fired. Losing the civil immunity cops usually need to do their job. And then being charged with murder. All within 96 hours, before the riots even started? The entire country; white, black, cops, non-cops all agreed that this was unacceptable behavior for the police and the world responded. That kind of accountable?    And THEN after all that, they burned down their city. And 140 other cities along with it.   Cops are fired every. single. day. Cops go to jail every. single. day. Cops speak up about their fellow cops every. single. day. They just do it properly and appropriately through their chains of command. You don't hear about it because its not a fun soundbite.   Can we go back to talking about football, please?
    • Yup. Purely my opinion, but I think Blackmon  is more well rounded than Willis. I think Willis ends up the #3 guy, and the guy who plays Nickel or Dime S in some personnel packages. I'd be happy if they just let Willis play on run downs at SS, and Blackmon play SS during passing downs to start off.   Tell is an interesting project. He's got the body/speed of a tall CB but doesn't have the tackling physicality needed for SS. I could see him moved back to FS though. The experiment to CB last year might be over sooner than later. It's really his make or break year. If Rodes and Carrie do well at CB, they could move him back to S early.   Did you see Blackmon put that hit on the WR the first play when Utah was on D?
    • Yep...the more I see...I see SS...or a nickel S close to LOS. Ballard did say he saw him as a FS in the NFL...but he is still really raw in terms of ball tracking and covering deep zones.     This defense needs 3 legit starting Ss...and then depth. So Ballard might see him and Willis as the SS and nickel S going forward...with the better of the two starting in the base defense...and perhaps he will look to find a more dynamic coverage guy to replace Hooker (unless they re-up him)...or maybe Tell transitions back to FS (my personal preference).   Right now...I think Blackmon has to compete with Willis and Tell for snaps. After what I saw from Tell last year...he should be getting more snaps.
    • 40. Tua Tagovailoa 39. Dwayne Haskins 38. Mitchell Trubisky 37. Justin Herbert 36. Taysom Hill 35. Jarred Stidham 34. Tyrod Taylor 33. Jameis Winston 32. Case Keenum 31. Nick Foles 30. Gardner Minshew II     Updated with latest addition.
    • All reports Ive seen he is doing good and expected to be ready early to mid season.   I hope they don't intend on rushing hom back. Hopefully there is no injuries that force him in before he is ready.   I don't think he will be brought back till 100% though.
