View Full Version : Ron Winter is the official for Steelers vs Broncos

01-07-2012, 09:21 PM
Referee Ron Winter, who was an alternate for last year’s AFC Conference Championship, has the weekend’s final Wild Card matchup.

R — #14 Ron Winter (17th year, 14th as referee)
U — #49 Rich Hall (8th year)*
HL — #52 Julian Mapp (3rd year)
LJ — #108 Gary Arthur (15th year)
FJ — #88 Scott Steenson (21st year)
SJ — #62 Ronald Torbert* (2nd year)
BJ — #83 Richard Reels (19th year)
Alternates — Ed Camp (#134, HL from Walt Coleman’s crew), Dyrol Prioleau (#109, FJ from Scott Green’s crew)

*Substitutions: Hall fills in for Tony Michalek and Torbert is substituting for Tom Hill. Both substitutes are from Ed Hochuli’s crew. Torbert is a second-year official, so this is his first year of postseason eligibility.

Hall was an alternate at last year’s Super Bowl.

Winter’s last postseason game worked was a divisional playoff in 2009.
Winter’s crew officiated away games for both teams: a Week 6 Jaguars-Steelers game and a Week 10 Broncos-Chiefs game. From our friends at FootballZebras.com (http://www.footballzebras.com/)

Personally I like when either Mike Carey or Ed Hochuli calls a game. There group of officials is generally solid and get the game right even if it takes a little while longer.

I don't know refs at all. But, one bad call is one too many.

Winter will throw at least one roughing the passer call against us. Write it down.

Doesn't he always? Let's just hope it isn't at a crucial time like we saw yesterday in that Bengals/Texans game.

You can say the officials don't cause you to lose the game and they didn't today either. The Steelers did that on their own with poor play in the secondary. In all seriousness though I lost count on the amount of holding against Harrison and Woodley, the bogus call against Harrison for roughing the passer was beyond terrible.

Even Mike Pierara himself said it was a bad call, as you're allowed 1 step after the QB throws it.

Bad calls for both teams as per usual. Holding goes uncalled the entire game as per usual. Harrison got his one bogus penalty call as per usual. Etc etc etc.

It is what it is but you hope they make the right call more of the time than not in the playoffs. It's the story of our lives.
