Default Re: Editorial: Even Vince McMahon Turned His Head in Shame

Saying refs were in on it only masks the fact that refs are actually blind and dumb when it comes to calling penalties sometimes. They called two penalties on that drive because they "assumed" there was a foul, not because they saw it.

Now, with that, if we all see a penalty, because we have the luxury of replay and 7 angles, and the ref doesnt call the penalty because he didnt see it, I will buy that more so then calling a penalty on a play because you assumed it was. That's what pisses me off with these refs in the NFL and NBA. A lot of times, the ref who isnt even in the direction where he would see something, calls a foul. If you see it, call it, if you dont, dont. That is all I am asking.
