They are letting stuff go big time and then the weirdest flags come in that should not be penalties.
I don't like saying this, because it sounds like a cop out - but assuming this lockout continues and these scab referees are here for the rest of the season - even if the Steelers would win the Super Bowl, I might be inclined to put an asterisk next to 2012 (the first I'd mark since the Patriots taping seasons). The penalties are so hit and miss and utterly bizarre that - if this continues - it would be difficult to view this season as being in any way credible. Regardless of how the Steelers fair, it just may well end up being one of those seasons. It's definitely been a turn off to me as a football fan so far.
