So for everyone saying he should have battled the ball down, I take it you missed the Lions game yesterday

Didnt watch the game, slept through it. Saw the highlights, but how many games can we say last year the real refs screwed us over wit some stupid calls.

These replacements do seem to be having a harder time getting the calls right than the regular refs, not to say there weren't numerous bad calls last year too.

This league makes more than enough money that they should be able to meet the refs demands. Are the demands really that unreasonable to justify all this grief?

It goes beyond money. The refs don't want any sort of system of accountability. The NFL doesn't want to wait til the year is over to be able to hold a referee accountable for the sort of BS calls we've been seeing since long before the replacements took over. The NFL also wants to have a secondary group of officials so they're not so dependent on the same group of guys every time but the good ol' boys club doesn't want to let anyone else in.

Even beyond the other things, just strictly talking about the money side of it, the NFL is a business. There's no such thing as "they have enough money to just cave in to the employee's demands so they should just do it". It sets a bad precedent.

The referees are looking for increased salaries, improved retirement benefits, and want to make some changes to various operational issues. The NFL, not surprisingly, doesn’t want to spend more money on officials. The financial difference between the two sides amounts to around $4 million per year. To put this figure into perspective, the NFL makes over $9 billion in revenue each year. The NFL has locked out its referees in order to save about 1/2250 of its yearly revenue — approximately one twentieth of one percent.

So I guess you missed the other phantom calls like the PI on shields and the roughing the passer that negated the interception that would have led to at least a green bay field goal, effectively ending the game.


Homeboy went low on the Quarterback. And he did it after the ball was thrown. No disputing that one. Roughing the passer. It wouldn't be a penalty had the injury to carson palmer not happened a few years back.

How are they coming up with these refs? Every fuging person who watched this game knew that wasn't simultaneous possession.

Give these fools some sort of review committee or something.

Nothing like this has happened that I can ever remember. The closest possible thing I can think of was the 07 cowboys game at home where that douche made a horrible call against smith and then ejected him for making contact with an official. As egregious as that was it didn't cost us the game. The next bad call in that gamewas the "roughing the kicker" on the tipped field goal that was replayed and not corrected. I still don't think that rises to the level that we saw last night and thats one game in 17 years where I question whether we actually lost bc of the refs.

This is a comparison between a bad holding call here and there to costing an entire game due to incompetence. It's an embarrassment.

Didnt watch the game, slept through it. Saw the highlights, but how many games can we say last year the real refs screwed us over wit some stupid calls.
