I am about done with the NFL
 
I love my Saints and always will and will continue to watch them forever win or lose, but the NFL is turning to ****. The officiating is getting worse and worse every year and now its to the point where you can't tell they are blatantly trying to manipulate the outcome of games. In the first quarter before we started to pull away the refs were doing everything they could to keep us from reaching the end zone. You know why? Because Cam Newton is a good story, and the NFL can see the marketing potential in him. He will bring in tons of ratings and that is exactly what the NFL is turning to. They keep changing the rules and it is to the point where defenses are not even fun to watch anymore. The NFL is putting themselves in position to manipulate games enough to give teams who bring in the most ratings a better chance to win. Hoculli has been a horrible official for years and he's getting worse. Unless the NFL starts holding some of these officials liable for these crappy calls it is only going to get worse. If this keeps up I am going to only watch the Saints and go back to watching college ball in spite of how ****ed up the BCS is.

Hey did you see those pictures of him maybe the NFL could market those.

Dude, couldn't have said it better myself. Hock-a-loogie needs to go, end of story. The supposed horse collar tackle in the first half was ridiculous and don't even get me started about the fumble recovery. He needs to just retire, obviously the steroids are starting to affect his brain.

These calls when called should be reviewed/challenged cause the edge are calling anything close to the head

I have to say when you compare the trigger happy refs in the game against the Titans versus the refs today it seems like these guys were gun shy.

I did not agree with the horse collar. But, the refs littered the field all day in Nashville. Today, it seems to me they backed off in general (except on a few bad calls against us). Seems like they missed a pass interference call against us and a bunch against the Panthers.

Just what I saw.
