Default These refs are disgusting.

The roughing the passer call against the Packers right now is the ref's penalty calling in a nutshell. Complete bullshit.

That was just a terrible call.

Jeez, I hate to add fire to the conspiracy theorists but every single call went the Hawks way - everytime the Packers looked like getting on top - stopping a 2nd half drive - sure enough a penalty was called - roughing the passer (total BS) and numerous illegal contact penalties.

That was possibly the single worst call I have seen all year.

Wouldnt surprise me if Polian was behind most of these rule 're-emphasis's'

I won a bunch of money by taking the Hawks but this was total incompetence.

I have a feeling that this is the reason V. Young was not sacked in the game vs. the Giants. The defensive players are too worried about being penalized!

They need to do something about that rule. Cant just leave it up to the Individual ref to call it, leaves to much leeway in either direction. Its needs to be clarified better as to whats a penalty and whats not.

No, that was a horrible call, though. The league has gotten so rule-crazy about hitting the quarterback that you might as well not even have a pass rush anymore. Any time you make a play, it's a personal foul and an automatic first down.

Having said that, I watched tonight's game with glee, because the only team I like less than the Cryhawks is the Packers. Brett Favre can go get his media slurp job some other time.
Cant belive you were rooting for the suckhawks, thats just nasty

Chris Mortensen said in the ESPN pre-game Monday that the competition committee is going back to the drawing board on what constitutes roughing. The current rule combines elements of flag football with requiring too may judgment calls by the refs.

Of course any fix waits until next year unless NFL HQ has a sitdaown with the refs prior to the playoffs - If a dubious roughing call goes in favor of a perceived NFL golden child such as Peyton or Brady that affects a playoff game there is going to be some serious screaming.

Good, because these roughing calls are ridiculous. They make me want to turn off the TV and forget about football...so does our season at times.

I think this is a case where instant replay should have been used to overturn the officials call. This call was so blatantly bad that it was just sickening. That alllowed the seahags to have the winning drive to put the game away and no game should be decided by an officials really bad call. Just my .02 worth.
