NFL thread

Are the officials this incompetent or are the games being fixed either for betting or to get the right teams into the playoffs to max out ratings?

Everything including penalties needs to be reviewed by separate teams of refs becuase this is now a total farce.

Re: NFL thread

Which game are you talking about specifically.  Not sure if you saw the Pats vs Bills games.  Now that was f-up of the century from a ref perspective.  I am not sure whats going on in this league anymore.  I started to think that this might be fixed but if that can't be because if it ever got out this league would done for.   So my thinking is that they are incompetent.

Re: NFL thread

In Last nights game it was very clear that the NFL wanted the Packers to win Farve's homecoming game.  

The other thing lately us the definition of a catch changes several times a Sunday.  

The incompetence is stunning lately to the point where fixing seems more likely.  If they cared about making sure out comes were true making all penalties reviewable would be a good start.

Re: NFL thread

I totally agree with you on that one Coach Z.  I saw some PI on the Bills this year that made me throw the remote against the wall.   If they were reviewable then there would be no doubt that they would be overturned.  Its making a mockery of the game.

Re: NFL thread

The NFL continues to use 50 and 60 year old men who cannot keep up with the speed of the game. Most of the refs also have full time jobs during the week. This leaves little time for their recovery from the game and travel. The NFL needs to get some full time refs in the 30-40 age group, not part timers with other jobs during the season.

They also need to simplify the rules, run the replay system like the NCAA (just get it right) and eliminate the coaches challenge. The nonsense with catches in the end zone needs to end.

Re: NFL thread

If they fix it so that the jets win I'm OK with it.

Re: NFL thread

So from today's Pitt Seattle game we learned you don't have to take the catch to the ground if rolling out of bounds.  No one not even The Commish knows what the the hell a catch is anyone.  My take is the NFL wants Seattle not knocked out of the playoff race so that call goes to Seattle.  It's all fixed not for gambling but to fit a narrative which maximizes ratings and thus the money the NFL makes.

Re: NFL thread

Check the Bills game where Hogan caught it and took 3-4 steps while controlling the ball and still it was called incomplete after the tackle....WTF?

Re: NFL thread

This one is the one from about about a month ago is the most screwed up one of all.  It cost the Bears the game.  It was ruled a INT on the field so to overrule and change the call is just crazy
