View Full Version : NFL issues warning on conduct

The NFL reached out to the owners, general managers and coaches of all 32 teams this week to advise them that the type of on-field behavior it witnessed last weekend will not be acceptable this weekend.

Coaches including coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio of the Denver Broncos, along with San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, were spotted berating officials in a way unacceptable to the league office.


If someone were to make that mistake, he would be flagged on the field and he would be hearing from our office in a very firm way.

-- NFL executive vice president Ray Anderson, on if a coach berates a replacement referee this weekend
"We contacted them to remind them that everyone has a responsibility to respect the game," NFL executive vice president Ray Anderson said Thursday night. "We expect it to be adhered to this weekend and forevermore."

The last time the NFL reached out to so many teams on an in-season issue it felt this important was an October weekend in 2010. There were multiple helmet-to-helmet hits on unsuspecting receivers, including a violent hit from Atlanta Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson on Philadelphia Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson that got him fined $50,000.

After watching coaches' behavior with replacement referees last weekend, the league determined it was unacceptable and put everyone on notice.

Ridiculous... league should also determine the refs performance is unacceptable. This is a cut throat business where everyones jobs are on the line everyday, yet you want them to chill out when refs **** over your team? How about when the refs give teams free yards on simple placements of the ball?

Had Broncos won the game, I know the Falcons would be all over that **** up at half time.

Check out this pass interference call... you can go to 0:50 to see it better. It was called on Ike Taylor 24...

The NFL would have a point if the coaches were wrong. In most cases, they are not. The officiating has been awful.

If the officials make the correct calls, the coaches wouldn't go off on them. Problem solved?

I agree, the league made it very clear before the season they wouldn't tolerate coaches badgering the refs, but John Fox spend the better part of the 4 hours the game lasted yelling at the refs and he didn't get fined for it. The league knows the refs in that game were horrible and they know if they fine Fox they are going to get into a situation where the head coaches may turn on the league office.

However, this entire fiasco has moved my tolerance needle slightly. I'll continue to watch football, but if Denver is eliminated from playoff contention and the replacement officials are still working games, I won't watch.

This makes it painfully clear (as if we didn't already know this) that the NFL is more concerned about the "appearance" of the game than whether the game is played right. Yelling coaches, and long delays are not good for ratings, and therefore advertising revenue. Better to muzzle the coaches, let the calls be wrong, and move the game along. Make it LOOK like everything is peachy keen, and in theory no-one will be the wiser. The cash register still rings, and you can hope against hope that next week will be better.

As long as the fans keep buying the product, watching the games, and staying in their seats, not much is likely to change. And that... is exactly what is going to happen.

Its ok...when they flag Fox for screaming they will accidentally add 15 points to our score instead of marking the ball back 15 yards.

Now people have gone from watching for the love of the game to watching the train wreck happening 16 times a week. People will not stop watching, no matter what happens.

I know it'll be ineffective, but it's better than sitting around saying, "Man people should stop watching...while I watch". <~That's the queue for the ellipse police.

I spoke to a few people who turned off te Denver Monday night game because it was "boring".

I understand the smart ass " turn it off" I won't but people who watch a Monday night game or a Sunday night that are not mega fans will and do "turn it off".

This is getting ****ing ridiculous. It's like they see Soccer with its high level corruption, poor standard of refereeing, lack of replay technology and zero accountability for the same refs and think "hmm, we might have something to learn from this"

You criticise a ref in soccer for making a call that potentially screws your team out of winning a trophy, even when its blatantly the wrong decision, you're punished for it and the decision stands anyways, because **** you. If this **** starts to filter through into the NFL i'll go mad. :chairhit:

It's been mentioned that fans will never leave the game and this may be true. But the NFL might want to invest in some added security.

I remember watching a Browns game about 10 years ago where the officials appeared to blow a call and the Cleveland fans went nuts! They started throwing beer bottles (plastic but some were full), trash and all kinds of other stuff. Serious stuff, not just dog biscuits. They weren't just throwing it at the opponents bench either, it was coming from all sides and all the players had to crowd into the center of the field. Think some fans even tried to rush the field.

The refs actually ended the game with like 40 seconds left on the clock, and when they tried to exit, they were pelted and doused from above as they entered the tunnel. They looked like they were running for an air raid bunker.

Home town crowd that's pumped up, and drunk, seeing a bad call cost them a playoff game, or a shot at the playoffs? Could be some ugly incidents.

While shabby officiating certainly blows, allowing coaches to berate the refs is inviting on-the-field, bench-clearing BRAWLS... which would reeeeeeally not be good for the game.

No fan wants 50% of the players on his team suspended, which is what could potentially happen.

Maybe the broadcasters can get on board the protest bandwagon. When the coach is ready to snap the ref, they could just pan away. Kinda like when a streaker hits the field.

Will the league start warning the commentators when they get over critical about some of the bs calls?

Broncos4tw
09-22-2012, 06:38 AM
All refs will make some bad calls. The "real" refs will make a hell of a lot less bad calls. The fact that some 30% more penalties are being called this year by visiting teams show how star-struck these replacements are, not to mention susceptible to changing a call or calling one late based on the team / crowd and the noise and all.

Get the real refs back.. this is getting utterly stupid.

I was at that game against the jaguars. It's the reason all bottles are made of plastic at games now. It was because the jaguars challenged after the play was run by the browns and they gave the jaguars the call. It was raining cups/food/beer bottles from EVERYWHERE.

pay me now, pay me later.. if they lose ten grand in 3 weeks how long does it take to make that money up either in salary or in pension money..

mostly likely longer than the life f the upcoming contract..

some (lots if you look at these guys) of these guys are making 100K a year so double the TEN grand they have already lost, for them and frankly they are the closet ones to retirement..

The NFL would have a point if the coaches were wrong. In most cases, they are not. The officiating has been awful.

If the officials make the correct calls, the coaches wouldn't go off on them. Problem solved?

And really, it goes beyond just making a wrong call. When these officials are trying to use college rules for enforcing penalty yardage, and several other things of this nature, it doesn't give the coaches very much confidence these refs have the slightest clue.

I hope for 2 things this season. Obviously the Broncos winning the Superbowl. 2, I hope these refs **** up every single game to the point that the league starts to lose some of it's luster. **** these greedy owners that can't work this out.

which is just putting a huge bullseye on his team this week..

whether he is right or wrong he just butt ****ed himself and his team for this week..

YOU NEVER EVER embarrass someone in public.. nothing good can come out of it..

you take them aside and talk to them or send the protests to the league on monday..

It may not even be fines it could wind up as being thrown out of the game or maybe even more games...

the replacement refs are here to stay until the old refs buckle on the contract and maybe not even then.. the NFL could pull their offer off teh table and then they start all over..

The league may be able to fine the coaches... but it really should get their attention when a full stadium on a prime-time broadcast is chanting "Bullsh*t". And today the media's joining in; devoting a significant portion of Monday Night Countdown to "the horrendous officiating of the replacement refs". They're not going to be able to pretend that nothing's wrong; the longer the lockout goes on, the more the bad calls/non-calls are hurting the integrity of their product.

Until the tv ratings drop or a marquee player like Brady goes down
Godell and park ave will not do anything

Tickets to games have already been sold so not showing up in person had zero effect on bottom line

How many of you turned off the Sunday night
Because of the 30 penalties

Probably none

Actually I missed part of the game because I forgot it was on.. but watched the end of it.. would have watched it all if I could..


The extra few minutes a game that new refs add to the game does not bother me in the slightest..

I find in ludicrous that some of y'all whine about the games being to long and spend hours on here weekly..

Sup lonestar. Remember I said I wouldn't watch a game this week? Well I turned on the MNF game to see the last 2 plays of the game. Hahaha so glad that disaster was on primetime. That was the worst sequence of officiating I have seen in any sport. That tops donaghys gambling calls. Tops the kings lakers 4th quarter.

That was embarrassing and the NFL is already in damage control mode after this week.
