Everyone knows I dislike Shanle, but I will say that he played well in this game and the PI on him was crap.

Replacement officials aren't just bad for the Saints they are bad for every team. Just watch a few other games and you'll see the same bad calls.

Right. That's what he said that I didn't understand. I've never seen penalties enforced in that manner at any level from y-ball up to the NFL.

Re: Better ready yourself, Officials are ahhuuugh!!!!

They were beyond awful. I counted 3 questionable pass interference calls and one that was blatant. yea Shanle got away with one too but they were horrible for both teams. i heard one ref say it was 3rd down when it was first down. I would like to think it was just a slip of the tongue but the way these guys were calling plays I wonder. Something has to be done.

Re: Better ready yourself, Officials are ahhuuugh!!!!

Field goal kick where they spotted the ball on one hash, teams lined up, then the refs came running in and moved it to the other hash mark, everybody moved over, then the refs huddled, then they moved it back to the first hash...Saints players were pointing and gesturing and telling them where it should go...it might have even been the one that Hartley missed, but I really can't remember. Come on guys. WHICH HASH DO YOU PUT IT ON. It ain't rocket science. We're not landing on the Moon here. Spot the %^%^ ball and get out the way.

Re: Better ready yourself, Officials are ahhuuugh!!!!

Did everybody see the play where it was suddenly blown dead and Drew threw a laser bullet pass to the Umpire back by the linebackers. THINK FAST! It was awesome. I've never seen that happen before in a real game. I mean it's kind of borderline disrespectful to the refs, if you think about it. Drew really kinda rifled it at him, HARD, almost at game speed, and the dude wasn't really expecting it but he caught it. I loved it.

This thing with the refs and the NFL is a train-wreck. The way the NFL presented the new refs, and also the forced gender issue with the female ref at the same time, is a double disaster.

Yes the players probably don't respect the refs as they've been told NOT to complain about them via coaches who had this info exposed by media outlets.
  • Scab refs already sucks
  • girl scab refs is FORCED and do we seriously need to go through this right now?
  • Goodell getting busted putting out memos to not complain about the refs sealed their fate in the halls of player respect

- illegal touching? Im guessing he ment illegal formation. Wade Phillips was even puzzled.
Isnt that otherwise known as the Ben Rothlisberger rule?

I cant remember what game it was i watched the night before,i think it was either the Seatlle or Arizona but the rusher got on the inside of the guard and the guard wrapped his arm around the rushers neck and pretty much dragged him down causing contact with the QB. These refs called roughing the passer.
The sooner this issue is sorted the better

Re: Better ready yourself, Officials are ahhuuugh!!!!

The officiating last night was deplorable. Beyond the pre-snap shenanigans, the clock gaffes and the pass interference fiascoes, the replace-a-refs tried to let a Houston WR get by with a catch after stepping out of bounds! I dunno what it looked like on TV, but they didn't turn the play over until everyone in the Dome went ape-$#!t ... it was awful, I swear little old ladies in my section were cursing!

And to think I've tried to defend these clowns ... jeez.

What about when Collins was running the ball and got hit and was pushed back for like 5 yds and fumbled. That would have been a decent gain but no forward progress was called. He literally was being driven backward for 4 seconds. Whistle should have been blown.

Late whistles -- That is how people get injured!
