  1. Was this the worst call in NFL history?

    Hilarious https://fox8.com/2019/01/21/louisiana-eye-doctor-offers-free-exams-to-nfl-referees-following-controversial-no-call-in-nfc-championship-game/

    You are correct - this never would happen in a million light years. The point of my post was not whether team A or team B benefited from the incompetence of the officials - it is the incompetence itself. Something that blatant needs to have an avenue to be reviewed and corrected if necessary. If the jerseys were reversed, I am sure you would agree.

    Too bad the league left the sand in the Vaseline for the Saints before this.......... (The only right thing to do would be is for the Commissioner to step in, reverse the call, and play the rest of the game out from there. Your move, Rog........) https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2816858-nfl-rumors-league-to-discuss-making-pass-interference-reviewable-at-length
  4. Was this the worst call in NFL history?

    I get SOOOOOO tired of hearing - Oh we just have to play better or We shouldn't have put ourselves in a position to allow the referees to determine the game or good and bad calls even out through the season (Please don't circumvent the language filter). You giving the referees carte blanche to do whatever they want with no repercussions. They are hired to do a job - do it correctly or be replaced. If I screwed up that bad at my job over the course of a season (and it hardly would take a full season) - I would be out on my backside so fast........... These are (cough, cough) PROVEN PROFESSIONALS (cough, cough) paid very handsomely to officiate these games. And do you know why this mockery of the application of the rule book continues???? Because there simply is NO ACCOUNTABILITY for piss poor performance. Become an NFL official? Have a job for life...... I heard Rex Ryan on Greeny's show this am - If the referees want to watch a game - buy a ticket. It is true that I am a Browns fan. We have endured more than our share of ridiculous calls/noncalls/make the rules up as you go since 1999. But what happened in the Superdome yesterday was downright criminal. When did it go out of style that an employee is required to do the job he was hired to do AND IS BEING PAID FOR IT?????????????? With all the technology available in 2019 - why is the NFL still in the Dark Ages? Screw it if it takes a little longer to get the call right. They allow PI reviews in the CFL, WTF - NFL. Either step up, end this buffoonery, and change the rules and implement the technology - or just come out and say "We pick the winners of each game". Until that happens. Bill Vinovich and his henchmen have NO BUSINESS ever being in an NFL stadium again unless they drop some coin first.

    The only way the league saves any shred of credibility (probably too late) is they fire that entire crew. If a linesman is fired midseason over a missed false start, how can the league say they are consistent by allowing this crew - that CLEARLY cost a city a shot at a Super Bowl to stay on staff ??? I will tell you how - one of Murphy's Laws. He who has the gold makes the rules. NFL ratings were sagging last year, so that rulemaker decided that he wants the LA media market in the Super Bowl. No, the NFL is not rigged..............
  8. Rams vs Saints - part II

    FIFY
  9. GDT - NFCCG Rams (13-3) @ Saints (13-3): Get loud.

    In a season full of HORRIBLE officiating calls - that missed PI was the WORST. If they don't call that one - burn the damn rule book. It was: Faceguarding on the DB PI on the DB Hit to the helmet on a defenseless player Take your pick................

    Agreed. But he didn't have them at Ohio State. That being said - each one you get makes it easier to get the next one. Hopefully he learns a way to avoid them.

    This still doesn't stop me from pursuing a above average corner either FA or the draft. Thinking about closing off another deep third to the offense is appealing.
  12. 2019 Draft Prospects

    @Fatgerman I just did - You are right. He is active and disruptive as hell. He appears to be Larry Ogunjobi v2.0. I am sure this can be coached out of him - but the only thing that concerns me is the way that the NFL is being officiated today, Daniel comes high and violent on the QB many times, Personally - I love it. But I wonder if he is a 15 yarder waiting to happen. It's funny you mention him in the third, and I mentioned Larry Ogunjobi............ Pick 65 - top of the third round WalterFootball has him ranked as DT prospect number 16 - going in the round 3-5 range http://walterfootball.com/draft2019DT.php
