Default Refs were in pre-season mode as well.

Just came from the seahawks game tonight and I see not much has changed for referees this year still f'in us on calls like in the Ravens game.

Hillman broke the goal line should been a touchdown. (also I feel like people are being too hard on him and M Ball they ran hard tonight, the blocking was horrible)

Aaron Hester (who sucks badly) touched that backup seahawks reciever down by contact before the TD clearly yet it still stood as a TD.

Von Miller was being held all night, he pretty much made Okung his you know what.

there were a few others I got to watch the replay of the game.




Oh btw Bronco nation was strong in attendance at Century Link tonight it was an awesome turn out.

We're all a little crusty this morning...

Don't worry 'bout him..."Bronco Nation" is fine. Thanks for the update on the turnout. I bet the fans in Seattle are a little more tolerant of other fans. (?)

Going to Gillette wearing Orange is somewhat dicey. Not Eagles fans dicey, but dicey none the less. Regular season can't get here soon enough.

Why didn't fox challenge the TD call
These are things that make you mad.
With better coaching and decisions we could have won Ravens game last year.
I just hope he realizes his mistakes and improves this year.

As far as a gameday coach goes Fox can't hold a candle to Mike Shanahan but than who can.

Because you can't challenge a scoring play.

This. And Bronco Nation is a sin. The Raiders came up with Raider Nation, and it is their title alone.

I saw a lot of Bronco fans on TV, I'm glad it was a good turnout

If you're talking about the fumble return for a TD, Fox could have challenged the fumble. I thought it was clear that half his body was across the line with the ball in front before it came out. But in preseason ball, they don't have all the great camera angles at the goal line.

No you can't. It's auto reviewed.

You can't challenge scoring plays. You can't challenge turnovers. They are automatically reviewed.

I would like to think in the regular season the Hillman fumble into the end zone would've gotten more than a 2 second (if even) review like in last night's game.

I thought Hillman was in by a fraction before it came loose, but he's gotta learn to hang onto the damn ball and remove all doubt!

Do they not consider the turn over and the TD two separate instances? I know the fumble ended in a TD, but I thought they were considered two separate instances. I thought I saw a few plays like that get challenged last year.

I'll make this easier for you. Did someone score during the play?

Grumpy much? I just asked if they were not considered two separate instances. I figured that the ref would only look to make sure that the Seattle player had possession of the football and actually scored. I didn't think he would verify if the ball was actually fumbled before the score. Which is why I thought they viewed them as two separate instances and that the fumble could be challenged.

Every Seahawk game I've been to over the years theres always been a ton of Bronco fans in attendance.

This year had to have been way cool with Manning and all our big names coming to town.

Living in their territory I really don't like their fans in general... but it's always been a good experience with friendly banter back and forth at their games.

I remember in the middle - end of the 4th the announcer was saying how it was a new ref. The announcer said they had new refs doing the first two weeks of preseason to get experience and knowledge. Supposedly they are getting graded and if they do good they will be brought along and gain experience to eventually be actual refs in the league.
