Refs: Home Cooking?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Yeah, I know we won at Chicago and maybe it's because the women around me are making me "sensitive" this time of the month, but it sure did seem like the Head Linesman et al were given the Saints some ...

Refs: Home Cooking?

Yeah, I know we won at Chicago and maybe it's because the women around me are making me "sensitive" this time of the month, but it sure did seem like the Head Linesman et al were given the Saints some "home cooking" on some of those second down spots with the football and "no calls" on the tackles...

Pats are tough enough, we don't need to be "against" the refs as well...

If we'd been a lesser team, they'd had a huge impact on the game outcome...

You used "et al". I just used "et al" in another thread. We've probably reached our quota for the year.

Yeah they were, PT easily got a first and the refs moved the ball about a yard backwards

I thought the spots were good. We got close but from what I can tell we did wind up a bit short and they were good calls. It frustrated me how many times we came up a yard short so consistently. I cant in good conscience blame the refs for that.

I thought the same, but also felt the bad turf contributed. Several times during the game we lost potential yardage because of the turf giving way.

Doesn't it seem like we've been against the refs for atleast all 5 games. Missing obvious holding calls vs ATL and alot of these games. But long as we win.. dont matta!

Re: Refs: Home Cooking?

just say it. the nfl league office does not want the saints in the driver seat going into the play offs. would they call and have an indirectly ask th/tell the refs to influence game? mmmmm i would not be surprised

I think the grass played a big part in some of our difficulties in Chicago.
We seem to do a much better job planting and pushing off on turf.
Hopefully we gain back 1/2 a step this week and it shows in our timing and execution.
Referees can change the whole dynamic of a game with 1 or 2 irreversable judgement calls.
Endzone or 3rd down pass interferences and the like.
Ticky-tacky or let'em play... I just hope it's called equally so the guys can make the adjustment.

Remember the shovel pass Brees got off to PT, but the refs called it a sack and ineligible to challenge? How can they stand by that status (ineligible to challenge) when the replay CLEARLY shows some of these calls are flat wrong?
