the flow of the game is not being hindered. Which is very important. That was the maiin complaint of the replacement refs since they didnt know the rules very well. No one ever said the reg refs got every call.
Measure Twice......Cut Once"
The replacement refs were getting ripped every damn week but we could easily do the same for the current ones too. Ill give you an example of this bias...People were quick to rip a ref who had McCoy on his fantasy team. We don't know if that affected the game whatsoever. But in the SB last year, on the Wilfork penalty, the ref ASKS him if there was a penalty. Basically he didn't even see one but he threw the flag. That play may very well lived in infamy if we had lost that game. But since we won we can just laugh about it right?
yeah these part timer refs are horrible and have been for years
i was hoping the replacements wouldnt totally blow a game, so the lockout could continue and maybe we could have gotten to the point of having all full time accountable officials
Apologize to Melo 5
Colin Cowherd had said it since day one. We complain about the regular refs, so what's the difference?
I actually felt bad about the replacement refs. Without them, we wouldn't have had football, but they got ripped by the fans, press, and the league.
Refs will always stink!!!!! Replacement or real!
League wanted the Saints to win last night on Brees record breaking night. I was blown away when SD was in NO territory driving to tie it & the refs throw like 4 straight flags on SD to put em back on their 26yd line & 3rd & 37! That was total BS!
