It isn't though.....


If he really wants to protect the integrity of the game, he'd get a deal done.


Why is the blame on Goodell? It's not like it's actually Goodell who is bargaining with the refs, he's just a spokesman in a sense.

On top of that, why is the onus on goodell/the nfl to cave? Personally, I believe their requests to be very reasonable. Just bc they "can afford" to give into ref demands doesn't mean they should. Not how good businesses are run.

its because hes the head figure. anytime someone is the "head" of something they will get all the blame when anything goes wrong. people dont take the time to realize how anything works and just blames the person they assume have the job of running everything everywhere.

Just another example of union pricks thinking they deserve far more than they really do. Go officiate a CFL game and see how that pays. I actually enjoy the new refs...from what I've seen so far they seem to understand that fans come to watch the players play the game, not flags thrown.

You didn't watch the games I was watching because there seemed to be a flag on every other play.. but in most cases, it was deserved.. Wink

To be fair, that could be any referee. You can't really tell anything from that picture, the guy is 100 feet away and not even facing the camera. And being tipped by a reader doesn't sound that legit tbh. Not saying it's not true, it could very well be.

IMO, the replacement refs did a great job in Week 1. Certainly this puts pressure on the Refs union to get a deal done.

Plenty of bad/missed calls in the Saints/Skins game.

The GB/SF game was absolutely riddled with bad calls both ways. That crew was about as bad as i've seen since the replacement refs took over.

Seriously what?

In Cardinals - Seahawks they gave the Seahawks a 4th timeout on their final drive, that was extended to about 8 minutes due to utter incompetence. Thankfully the Seahawks muffed the opportunity.

In Chargers - Raiders they didn't give the Raiders a final play from the og team downing a punt, preventing them from running an (extraordinarily unlikely) final play to possibly tie the game.

In Rams - Lions, they stopped the clock inexplicably on the final drive, allowing the Lions to save a timeout and run their hurry up totally differently to score the game winning touchdown.

These were three end of game results where the refs directly screwed up and could have or did affect the outcome of the game.

On top of this you have many, many other situations such as, for example, in Steelers - Broncos, they allowed a challenge to take place after another play had run, AND failed to reset the game clock, so over 30 seconds of the game disappeared.

This is ignoring the many, many egregious missed false starts, inexplicable PI's and uncalled PI's and holding calls as the above posters and many others can mention. Not worth whinging about, when there's just so many direct screwups of the basics by them however.

If you think they did a fine or great job, you should really petition your team to save some cash and sign Curtis Painter to start, because he's close enough to what a NFL starting caliber quarterback does. I mean gosh, he'll obviously get better with more opportunities.

Really? I assume you only mean in favor of the Redskins, because I doubt you can name 3 that leaned in favor of the Saints. I saw 3 plays in favor of the Saints during the game: 1 A blatant missed hold on Orakpo in the 4th quarter, I believe. 2. The "forward progress" call, which certainly should've been a fumble, on Jimmy Graham in the second quarter. 3. Some BS pass interference call in the 3rd quarter that was pretty much non-existent. Replays didn't even show anything was wrong.

I saw plenty go both ways. The Graham fumble and the PI called on Harper in the endzone were the 2 that stuck out to me, but there were plenty more both ways. It wouldn't be surprising if you noticed more in favor of the Saints, and I noticed more in favor of the Skins, it's part of being a fan. Just a poorly officiated game all around though, I wasn't saying 1 way or another, nor was I complaining that the Skins were helped by the calls.
