Re: Refereeing in general
it's been terrible.
I think the league office has the ref's so confused with rules and fines that they're like bumbling idiots out there, not sure what to do half the time.
ALSO, i think the league has the crew paralyzed with fear that if they must throw flags on certain hits, certain teams, certain players, while also protecting other big names as well, that its just a complete mess out there.
The ref's remind me of typical employees or contractors anywhere.......so fearful of p***ing off their supervisors, that they do their job in paralysis and fear.
