5-5 You're nuts dude! And so bitter! The refs aren't trying to hand anyone any games! You must be joking. If there is a bad call, I guarantee you it is not because the ref is wearing purple. The refs suck this year, which means both sides get s**t calls. If you seriously think that the refs are actually on anyone's team (especially during an away game . . .), then you are beyond stupid, you are delusional.

I also do not like the penalty yardage either (as has been stated), and I don't like that on a number of occasions they've called PI when the ball was completely uncatchable. I don't know if it's part of a new rule to call it regardless...but I have yet to see one go uncalled because of that.

I know missed and bad calls are going to happen...but I think NFL refs are second worst only to NBA refs. And I'm not trying to whine about any one game specifically, I just feel overall they do a poor job and it's something that has been increasing over the years. That's just how I've seen it, and I think there are many others who have the same frustrations.

*For the record, I don't like it when the Steelers get questionable PI calls either...and though I guess I do like the points if they get them, I don't like the placement of the ball when they get endzone PI calls either. I'm just bitter about the where the NFL is right now on a lot of levels...so maybe that underlying anger makes me even more pissed at the refs.
