If you fine refs for missing plays, then, I think you'll see them just call a lot more questionable close calls to cover themselves.

I get that, that's why I think they should be disciplined for bad calls either way, missed calls or phantom calls.

Fine them, sit them or demote them, I don't care how, but there needs to be a lot more accountability in the officiating.

Man, I'd heard the rumors about this guy being a dirty player, but after Sunday...there is no doubt in my mind he is a dirty, cheap player. Every time I saw him hit/or attempt to hit someone he absolutely led with his head.

I don't understand how Goodell wants to enforce/create strict rules to protect players but doesn't fine the sh1t out of a repeat offender like this.

Weight it by yardage. 75+ yards worth of bad calls, you sit the next game.

I think that is a great idea, but for players. If you accrue 75 yards off penalties that are in the game to protect the players(helmet to helmet on receiver, low on QB, chop block, etc) then you should miss a game. It has worked well in soccer to deter players from just committing one "bad" foul per game that could potentially injure a player. Now if you get 5 yellow's in league play, you are suspended for the next game. I think something like this could actually work in the nfl.
