Twice they walked off the wrong yardage on penalties and missed a fumble recovery when the Broncos came out of the pile with the ball. They almost lost total control of the game. Looked a lot one sided in their calls. Ticky tack PI on defense yet some receivers got away with push offs.
I was thinking the same thing after reading your original post Buds. The game last night was a total embarrasment and a total officiating failure. The Broncos and the Failcons both had their fair share of bad calls.

Even the networks are noting the failures each week. After week one, I saw on TV (I cant remember which one, ESPN I think) the "Top 5 Worst Officiating Calls of the Week". I didn't see it this week. I'm sure RG shut it down immediately.

Now, I'm not blaming the Refs for our losses, far from that. But I do believe we are under a much heavier officiating thumb than the rest of the league.

That Falcons game was brutally called. It was nearly impossible to sit through, and not just because the Falcons were winning. The refs were god awful and everything took forever.

However, the refs aren't ruining the NFL. Roger Goodell's punk ass is. This is just a part of his work.

JMO... The regular officials made just as many bad calls, but they made them faster.

I completely disagree that the scabs are doing ok.

They are horrendous, THE DON'T KNOW THE RULES.

Last nights fumble in the Denver/Atlanta game is a perfect example.

They also CAN NOT CONTROL THE PLAYERS OR COACHES.

Those guys have to go.

It's also an integrity issue. No red should ever tell a player
"hey, I have you on my fantasy team"!
