Even with the number of flags, I thought the game was well officiated from the little I know about football officiating. The officiating did not decide the game one way or the other, as usual.

I did hear an interesting comment today on the sports radio shows - McAuley's (?) crew threw more flags this season than any other crew. Just thought that was interesting and can use it to try to convince the average bonehead fanboy that just because you throw a lot of flags, it does not mean you are a bad official.
I agree with you really can't whine about the 50/50 calls in the game....those are judgment calls and how can you argue with an impartial opinion? You can't. So you attack the guys position by saying it was rigged.
