Quite true. I think we've seen the worst officiating in YEARS across the board (it's not only Pittsburgh fans complaining anymore...)...yet there's almost zero reprecussions or accountability from the "refs" (and its so bad now i use that term very loosely..).
I think the rules are so unclear and punishment is not fairly distributed anymore that even the refs have no idea what to do much of the time.
