I don't know much about him as a ref though I'm sure I've probably seen him a 100 times, probably a good thing I guess. Anyone have any info on him/ his fairness?

all I know about him is he has an awful case of flabby arms where his triceps should be. It'll be too cold for short sleeves on Sunday so you prob wont be able to see it.


Dont know much about his rep as a ref

This bothers me a bit, but it is better than it being Triplette again that's for sure:</P>

We're just just gonna run out of refs to make fair and right calls for the Giants at this rate...

That guy that officiated today looks like he smokes 10 packs a day. Think he was just catching a smoke under the hood during the Jennings fumble review.

Any word on the crew this weekend? I just don't want Mike Carrey and his crew. He's so inflammatory with the way he calls his penalties. The guy seems to have such a low IQ though, even though he had to have been successful to get the the gig in the first place. He just seems to screw everything up. Honestly, still can't believe he called a fair Super Bowl. Could have been called for roughing Brady once or twice that could have altered the game.

The Giants are going to run out of referees at this rate.

Mike Carey or Ed Hochuli should be good Refs for the Giants in terms of calling a FAIR game. I don't think either has been perfect, but we're just asking for a !@$#@% dam FAIR game for crying out loud!

Hoculi and Carrey are screwups though. They've altered divisions and games. Carrey is just asking to be punched in the face with the inflammatory way he calls his penalties too.

Please, not them!!!

Come to think of it, I can't think of a crew I like. I used to like the older, sort of pudgey black head official. http://moogie.info/football/nfl/ref/023JohnnyGrier2001.jpg

Im fine with Carrey. Way he calls penalties doesnt bother me in the least.

Jerome Boger's crew calls the most penalties, but his delivery always cracks me up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvA4qXssXk0

LOL. Thought he was going to be the ref for the 49r's game this sunday... Until I saw the date posted. I was like there is no way he is going to be the ref again after the Greenbay fiasco/or more like scam.
