FanPost

Somewhat surprising...

I woke up this morning fully expecting to see a number of segments from ESPN and NFL network hosts regarding the increasingly poor performances from officiating crews this year. Aside from one quick comment made last night/this morning about the possibiliy of exploring hiring full-time referres, not a thing. Because of my bias towards the horseshoe, I was particulary irrate about Triplette's seemingly blind review and reversal, but it wasn't just that. New England essentially was given the win against Cleveland because of a call from Boger that even Mike Pereira was upset by. Ironically, both calls had somewhat of an effect on Cincinatti, having them been given 6/7 point leading into halftime against the Colts, and then NE been given the win keeping the Bengals out of the 2nd seed. These calls are now single handedly having an effect on playoff seeding, and that's not cool with me. I understand this is better than the alternative, being the replacement refs from last season, and this certainly isn't the first time referee complaints have been documented, but for whatever reason it's really getting to me this year.
