This thread is now closed by order of the kommisar!
Oh, the Bills did challenge? I don't remember seeing the red flag, so I guess that made me think there was no challenge. Anyway, it is still atrocious the refs called that a touchback.

I don't like scab refs. they are given to much power with little or no training.

Don't forget a lack of eye sight. If they'd just put the kommisar's number on speed dial when checking on a call, at least they could watch more of the game instead of their phone's number pad.

Re: Some Football talk, Saints vs NFC South this season and Replacement refs..

I like what I see from Spags so far. The defensive players seem to be already better fundamentally. Curtis Lofton will make you look good too. But yeah, I already see the first roots of improvement. There must be a reason so many teams were interested in him.

One thing I dont do a lot of, is complain about refs. It is what it is, and everytime you try to do something to make the officiating better, you get unintended consequences. Replay drags the game down, and adds an element of whining that I could live without. Im the only person in the world who feels like this, but I'd like to see replay done away with, and just get the best refs you can--- and like baseball, quit crying and play ball. or maybe have an occasional blowup argument, get thrown out.... and have some fun.

Thats just me; I dont expect anyone to agree with it.

overall, I think the scabs look like the real refs, minus a bunch of holding calls.
