Fans and Vegas wantnit right when something doesn’t swing in their favor, no one is standing up screaming at the TV “holding my ass, they earned that first down”.

Officiating is like drugs and violence in the respect that nothing has gotten worse in the last 30 years.... Thanks to the internet and ‘super slow motion drone insta review multiple replay 3D cam’ there is greater exposure.

Other than offsides or encroachment, let them play.
I don’t care nor do I want it to be 100% right as long as they are throwing flags or not throwing flags consistently between the two teams. I’ve seen several games this year where the refs seemed to have “just let them play” philosophy for one team but called every little incident on the other team.

Re: Officiating

They didnt want the Jags in the superbowl because they wanted to get the patriots another ring. That was very apparent the moment Minnesota got the "miracle". Now you left with 2 teams with 2 backup QBs, despite what the record is and the fact Minny beat us which shouldnt of happened, it was very apparent what was going to happen. Then more icing on the cake, Philly probably wont even score a TD in the Super Bowl if they even score at all.

No doubt, this was the clearest example in the first half of tampering in the Vikings. The 2 PI calls, the one where the WR was holding the DB's wrist was ridiculous, but let's call it the ref's angle, whatever. A 2 foot spot for the 1st down, was total BS, and speaking of why in the world would we not challenge?
It makes sense that the refs are told to make calls to try to keep the game close, to display a better "product", who wants to see a 40-3 superbowl? Me if the saints were up 40.
But no way should we lose to the Vikings, and that was obvious yesterday. There has always been suspect calls, like someone said earlier, but it seems like this year they have been over the top.
Someone showed me a video of Jordan pulling off the edge pressure on the same play Williams whiffed, could some the players be in on the take?

We didn't challenge because there was an issue with the replay monitor in the Saints coaching booth. That is also the reason given for the second half challenges that should not have been made. They were flying blind.

Re: Officiating

IMO yesterday's game between NE vs Jags ... lot's of non calls for the Pats. I'm never one to blame the officials, but damn call the game evenly. I don't believe Tom Thumb's team was penalized the entire game.

Side note - I'll be curious to see if the Jags exercise Bortle's 5th year option.

1 pentaly for 10 yds vs 98 yards.

IMO, pass interference needs to be 15 yards, automatic first down. Judgement calls similar to "defensive holding" (5 yards + 1st down) already do that.
