Do the regular refs make mistakes? Sure. Is there a HUGE difference in competence between an NFL ref and a high school ref? If you don't think so, you're not watching the same game. The flow and speed of the game is so much better. The calls are generally right. Think of our MNF game. Was the push off by Decker crap? Yes. But they got the Rivers fumble right. Imagine if we had been Hocculied on that. It was a bang-bang play and they got it.

The reviews are shorter, the calls are more correct, the ball is even spotted faster. Do they miss some? Sure. They're not perfect, but they are much better than the crap we had. One bad call for the Pats isn't enough for me to say they are the same.

No ****. One group sucks balls, blind, deaf and you can tell this is a weekend gig for them. The other group was worse than this and lost their temporary jobs a few weeks back.

Jeff Triplette should be removed along with his entire crew. they aren't very good and the very type of incompetence a Union tries to cover for.

Only time holding is called is when the defender is tackled to the ground...how many times have we seen the tackle strangle Doom with his arm?!

I think the best replacement crew could be better than the Triplette crew...

The same could be said about the replacement refs...they blew some and the stats proved they had more calls on the field correct when they were reviewed.

And I also find it ironic that you wonder aloud "what if we got Hochulied" (which I'm assuming is your humorous reference to a team being ****ed by a ref)

Isn't he a union ref?

No surprise that Ozo does what he does best and starts a whining thread. That is all that guy does is call fan police or whine.
