    right? only the best of the best make the league but only one team dominates? when are going to grow up and realize its entertainment?
    I think the NFL wants certain outcomes and the refs are "nudged" a certain way, but the events still need to fall into place. If the NFL wanted the Patriots to win, there is no way they would spot Atlanta a 25 point lead. That pick 6 Brady threw would have had a holding call or something to bring it back.

      I don’t even think it’s ‘nudged’.

      If it were, the Cowboys would not be in the midst of a 21 yr SB appearance drought and the refs would have immense bargaining power over the league, which they clearly do not.

      There was a great study done about coaches “working the refs” and there being a strong correlation with calls going in favor of the sideline the ref is standing on.

      In short, the point is refs are human. They try their best to call fair games, but they’re human. They make mistakes and are also not impervious to intimidation.

        You have to admit, there are some teams who always seem to get the calls in their favor more than others. And there are QBs who get preferential treatment which could be the NFL "nudging" the game in a certain way. Or the ref could of had his buddy Johnny Vegas drop some coin on a certain team behind closed doors. Who friggen knows. But IMO, the game is not 100% clean the way it is called.

          Can you provide a link for that study?

              As far as the team thing goes, that’s mostly just a bias view point along the lines of a “my team never gets calls” kind of thing. When in reality fans just notice calls that hurt their team more.

              That’s a natural reaction from invested fans, because bad calls can definitely hurt your team and sometimes games DO have lopsided officiating. But it’s just conjecture to try and draw a link to a larger agenda from the league like Ram suggests.

              No team enjoys additional aid from refs and the best way to view this is by taking a macro look at micro data—like looking at year to year, per play penalty data.

              On a per play basis, ALL teams benefit from calls between 2.5 and 4.5% of ALL plays.

              There are some outliers, but that range is pretty consistent on a year to year basis.

              What isn’t consistent is where a given team will fall in that range on a year to year basis.

              For example I’ve included how the Cowboys and Giants ranked in the league over the last 3 years.

              2016
              Cowboys 2nd
              Giants 10th

              2015
              Cowboys 25th
              Giants 22nd

              2014
              Cowboys 22nd
              Giants 14th

              There aren’t really any conclusions that I can draw based on those figures. And that’s what’s important. There’s not really a correlation for teams and the penalties they receive or draw to suggest an agenda.


              Now when talking about personnel receiving penalties more often, that’s a different story. But that’s such a case by case, nebulous topic that it’s pretty hard to address in a single post.

                  lol another one who thinks in order for it to be staged,they can only do it in a way that would seem obvious to your simpleton viewpoint.
                  Theres more than one variable going on here. fact is, Cowboys and Giants still constantly make playoffs whether they win first round or not.

                    Wow. Im all about conspiracies, and believe there is fishy stuff going on in this world, and believe the NFL loves to entertain rather than be 100% legit, but this comment is ridiculous. Why would the NFL want Tom Brady and the Pats of all people to win another SB after the whole deflategate saga?

                        This is a practical cautionary post about the stupidity of believing what you read.

                          And a good explanation of a lot of what's going on in the world these days. Too much info for certain peeps.

                            lets not forget they play in one of the most hapless divisions in all of football, almost guaranteed a playoff spot and in most cases, a 1st round bye and home field. Not taking anything away from them but if the pats had been in say the NFC east, or the AFC central the past 16 years those numbers in my opinion would be quite different.
