Headline makes no sense.  The referees didn't miss a safety call, they made one up out of thin air!

Uh, yeah. It's great to be here, Ref. Um.. listen, I just wanted to know, um.. are you totally blind, or just legally blind.. uh.. so that, you know, you can make out shapes and degrees of light, you know, that kind of thing?

kronicfeld: So the ref could call a safety at the other end of the field and there's no recourse. Yeah, that makes sense.


In the game? No, no recourse. The ref won't have much of a career after a call like that, though.

exick: cameroncrazy1984: AND missed it on replay too, I think. I didn't read tfa to check

No replay. I don't think safety calls are reviewable in the NCAA.


I don't know anything about football, but isn't there at least some kind of catchall "the ref is on drugs" review for when something is blatantly wrong?
