honestly I think the regular refs make as many terrible mistakes. I'm not trying to say that these refs are better, but I don't think the regular refs are that much better

Yep, but the five other calls on Ike were legit.

I swear they cost us the first game. That play where Thomas scored was an absolutely clear holding call against our CB who had a bead on Thomas. And the spotting of the ball is atrocious. The only good thing is that the calls seem to be really bad going both ways for the most part. A lot of head scratchers.

Personally I do no think they are that bad. Ike provided piss poor coverage, he deserved every flag he received. We made some stupid plays, and we got some calls back to us.

With that said, the call on Ike was crap, no doubt. But again, Ike was still out of position and would've allowed the catch. Perhaps if Ike actually played football and covered the guy like a shutdown corner does, the penalty doesn't ocurred.

My biggest issue with them is that they clearly don't know the rules. When they called grounding on Ben, they had to have someone on the sidelines explain to them that it comes with a loss of down. Who watched last weeks game when they simply gave the Seahawks extra timeouts because they had no clue they were supposed to take one away? Half the plays you get conflicting calls, and they need to call up to the booth for a popcorn vendor to straighten the call out for them. And this goes for all the games I've watched so far, but these guys couldn't spot a ball if they had a SEAL team popping smoke to mark targets for them.

I agree. nothing drastically wrong that changed the game. I say that Ed Hochuli and his buddys can take the rest of the year and go work out at the Y, because they aint much better than these retired refs from the WAC or Mountain West that are working.

Darkstorm: But they still got the grounding rule down. I don't think asking questions before Fing it up is a bad thing. Especially if its going to F it up more. The NFL should have some added input on the penalties to aid these guys in the results of the call. Overall a side from running the games longer, they haven't been bad. Well unless you ask that POS Flacoo, than the whine birds would probably see it a little different.

Millers the shit: Agree there, they nailed the others on Ike.. lol
