To play devil's advocate, they did get some critical calls right. The Sproles reversal, sure it was wrong at first but it's hard to tell in real time, did he have control as he went down? I couldn't tell. Same goes for a couple of Panther catches. They looked good initially, but the control wasn't there when they hit the ground. Then the timeout call that gave us 3 points.


I do agree they made mistakes but I think it's overall a wash. As for grooming Cam, I think without question they are hyping him way too much. That TD to Smith was all Smith, and the interception was a complete boneheaded throw. It's going to be interesting to see if they keep chasing the ambulance if they wind up with 5 wins because right now Cam's confidence is clearly shaken and that option gimmick is going to start getting crushed behind the line.

Since the calls are truly unexplainable, and I hate to say it, it lends credence to the refs having a direct say in regards to the outcome and the final score.

Same topic, new question:
did anyone else think they should have reviewed the interception off Graham's hands?
To me he doesn't have the second foot down when he secures the ball

I agree with you.

The officiating just made me ill. I finally look at the hubby and just laughed, and said, "Obviously there are about 18 players on the field for the panties in every play, because the zebras have on white, black and turquoise underwear!" I agree with the above statement. I have seen some horrid officiating over the years, but so far, this season is taking the cake! Where do they find these idiots??? I remember back in the day when the Forty Whiners used to win, win, win, and all the calls went their way. I had this gut feeling there was some serious "payola" involved. Well, years later I met someone who actually worked for the organization, and confirmed it. Also said that the "mafia" was present on a daily basis there, and he (this person) never made eye contact with the men in the pinstriped suits! With that said.....I am betting we can look "forward" to more bad officiating in the future!

Life is too short to be miserable....make changes while you can!

I thought the exact same thing, but the replays were not very good of that play and there was no way to say whether that second foot was inbounds when he had secured the ball. I don't know if they would've had better angles at their disposal "under the hood."

The INT was legit. Both feet mad it down in bounds...

It wasn't close to even being reviewed.

One thing that was really bad about the officiating in that game, was that various bad calls they made, or non-calls, actually CAUSED or inflamed the unsportsmanlike conduct type garbage behavior on BOTH teams. They continually missed stuff and allowed it to escalate, instead of nipping the garbage in the bud early on...at one point the refs were very dangerously close to losing control of the game...but things like that ridiculously late Roman Harper hit, they don't happen in a vacuum...not saying he was right to do it, or it should be excused, it was a penalty, but something was obviously going on there that caused it to happen...which the refs did NOT see.
