Re: Refs?

I try really hard to side with the refs. They miss some. It's a fast game and Roger keeps on adding BS stuff they are asked to make split-second determinations on. Their job is subjective. There will always be controversy.

The hit on Drew that negated the INT. That's Roger's NFL. They're calling them for and against every team. That's just the way it is now. It sucks. Sometimes it's BS. Doesn't matter. That's just how Roger wants the games managed.

I do side with the Bolts on the Offensive PI call on Gates. That was a complete crap call, but it's not why the Chargers lost.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

According to the rules, it was the right call. The defensive player launched himself to the head of the QB, leading with the crown of the helmet.

Now the offensive pass interference on Gates, welllll it's a lot like holding -- it's a judgement call by the official.
The call on Gates, I thought it was a combination of the angle the judge was looking at the play, Gates extending his arm, and Harper going to the ground.

I don't think it helps when your QB whines incessantly to the refs during the entire game..

Re: Refs?

That imaginary Pass interference call against Gates was just as bad as the In-Field fly call against the Braves................ And that call was the worst call ever in Baseball. Just say-in.

Well, consider this our lone opportunity to agree, kinda. The call on Gates was not a good one, but it was not the epic fail that the infield fly call was. THAT, was EPIC FAIL.

And the one-game wildcard playoff game is stupid. Makes me wonder if Roger Goodell is involved with baseball too.

Turrible. Just plain turrible.

Wow Saintfan we do agree! If you got two Wild card teams they should play 3 games not just one! Stupid as h-e-l-l

Re: Refs?

Drew Brees was very outspoken on Twitter about the scab refs after the Seattle/Packers game fiasco. He called out Goodell on it and really raised hell. Now the regular refs are back, and whattaya know, we've had two games in a row with calls "going our way" including one call directly related to Drew himself that negated a sure interception. Heck, I'll take it.
