    If these were replacement refs??????????????????

    It just goes to show how the mind works. The officiating in yesterday's game was horrible! If they were the replacement refs, people would have been calling for their heads. It just goes to show how quick we are to reject change and how complacent we've become with poor officiating in general.

    There were countless bad calls and non-calls for PI! (I'm convinced this is the new "offensive holding".....could be called on every pass play.

    There were countless bad calls and non-calls for holding!

    They struggled to get the ball spotted in the proper place!

    They missed numerous blocks in the back during returns!

    There is always human error. Yes they missed some calls here and there and weren't very good overall, but there were no game changing calls, or calls that made you turn the TV off. I get the point you are trying to make, but the real refs are still doing a much better job than the replacements did in weeks 1-3

    Yes they are better overall, but they were not any better yesterday than the replacements.

    I was just happy to not have a 10 minute conversation about every penalty. In all seriousness we're always going to complain about the officials. They miss calls and will continue to do so. They'll also jump the gun on penalties that shouldn't be called.


    Yesterday they weren't much better than the replacements but overall I guess maybe we have been jaded to the point of just accepting their bad calls.

    I have never seen so many illegal contact/holding penalties on a secondary go uncalled. It was crazy..worse than usual. Especially with the multitude of penalties they were calling

    Exactly. So many flags thrown, but so many blatant/obvious ones not called.

    These guys look like professional refs for the NFL Vegas Line...

    Holding our WR's evrywhere,, throwing our shoes. stomping on pouncey...

    What happen to Cassell was there a flag? Did see the hit.
