The NFL is a joke.. They have the worst officiating of any major professional sport, and it's not even close. Don't tell me the game is too fast either. It's like slow motion compared to the NHL The NHL refs catch a lot of heat and screw up as well, but they're far more consistent than the NFL jokers. The NFL has referees that don't even know the fucking rules.

NBA is the worst officiating in sports. The system they run in the NFL is garbage. All these damn replays and horseshit stoppages from that fucking moron and all these stupid ass owners who agree with everything this asshole puts on the table. They have over complicated every god damn play and call to the point where no one knows what the hell anything is.

I think the article kind of clears the refs names a little. It is a new rule. People shouldn't forget that.

I know I know....I give the refs shit a lot to but in all fairness Goodell and the competition committee don't exactly make it easy on them by adding 10 new rules each season and completely altering how the game of football is played and officiated.

I think it is on the league to add more officials, add more training, add them full time or whatever. The refs are making some huge errors this season and that just isn't good for the game.

All the stupid new rules are part of the problem. If they want to dumb down the rulebook, that would be fine by me. But if they put the fucking rule in there, you expect them to enforce it. It's not even a judgement call. There's nothing to interpret. It's a black and white, cut and dry rule violation. The Patriots lost to the Jets on a brand new rule enforcement earlier this year. You have to figure at least some of the NFL refs would have caught it.. But because there is so much inconsistency from one ref crew to another, we are out of the playoffs.

Isn't it their job to know the rules?

That'd be like a surgeon saying: "Sorry about your mom, Johnny. There's all this new equipment... so much new technology to learn."

the refs are terrible league wide. Any team can point to any number of plays where the refs screwed them or helped them. It was just a few weeks ago where the refs let the steelers coach interfere with a run back and didn't flag the team. The refs are a joke. I personally liked the replacement refs better.

And the Steelers were penalized a draft pick, and had the Ravens won, Goodell said he would have awarded the Ravens the victory.

Will Goodell award the Chiefs the victory? Will San Diego be fined a draft pick?

No & no... so, stop complaining.

I agree with you. I am just saying that the league doesn't exactly make it easy on them either.

They aren't full time like surgeons so it isn't the only thing they do or study or what have you.
