John Parry will be the referee in Saturday's game.

John Parry will be the referee in Saturday's game.

I just found out that John Parry will be the head referee in Saturday's game. The name didn't exactly jump out at me, much in the same way Tony Corrente's name didn't jump out at me last week. This is probably a good thing. If it had been someone incompetent like Ed Hochuli or Jeff Triplette, I would have been worried.

Incidentally, John Parry is loathed by 49er fans for calling a chop block penalty on Frank Gore which negated a Ted Ginn Jr. touchdown when the 49ers faced the Ravens on Thanksgiving earlier this season.

Here is a link to an article about John Parry on espn.com:

And here is a link to an article regarding the evaluation of refs in general (from 2008):

Rating refs touchy subject for NFL coaches - NFL - ESPN

As you can see, John Parry is rated as the best referee by only one head coach, but he is not rated as the worst by anyone.

Btw, everyone should be praying for Tony Corrente. In case you didn't know, he is currently battling throat cancer.

Tarell Brown was also called for pass interference that game on a 50 yard bomb which the Ravens turned into a field goal. Even with that TD they still lose. SF commits a lot of penalties. Parry has got his work cut out for him.

I would be worried if Mike Carey had been given this game. He's a good ref, but something strange always happens to us when his crew is calling the game.

Not me.....I know he's ranked #1 on that list, but Mike Carey absolutely hates the Saints. Just glad it's not him.

Well it looks like another call back of a Sproles kickoff/punt return TD.
The inevitable illegal block / clipping / chop / going too fast penalty.

So we will beat them other ways.
