mikemoto: I can't believe they didn't mention the 4th timeout that Seattle was granted in their game against Arizona. That was probably the most obvious mess up yesterday.


I'm thinking the fact that it had little impact on the game may have something to do with it. Had the timeout been burned properly by the Baldwin injury, Carroll would not have called a run play there and even if he did, there was still plenty of time to stop the clock or run another play. That said...yeah it looked terrible and then it got worse when they created a rule to fit what happened.

Yeah, that was by far the most glaring one. Perhaps the writer simply doesn't care about either team.


Gratified to see the Saints/Redskins game on there, although really the reffing wasn't at all terrible. I do wish that the author had tossed in that Brees was once sacked by his facemask and no flag was thrown; of course, the real refs miss facemasks fairly often, too, so perhaps it's not worth pointing out.

I don't understand how the NFL, the most profitable sports group, who have a VERY VESTED interest in keeping their players as healthy has possible based on the amount of cash invested in them, seems so darn stingy on refs.

It got its own post last night because it was such a ridiculous error. It's linked in the second sentence of the article.

There's bad calls for play on the field that any ref could make but then theres the bad calls a non-ref wouldn't make, yesterday was full of the latter.

gameshowhost: The Pack-Niners game was an utter clusterfark of failed officiating. I'm not sure how the NFL can even put that game on the books.

/the free market in action: lowest-paid = best ... right?



In a sick way I'm so glad that was a national, prime-time game.
