Actually i thought the crew with the official with glasses (Winters?) threw the most flags. With that crew, i swore the flag was hot, they were afraid to keep it tucked away.

Did you not see the TV replay with the 2 red lines draw back from the 2 tackles and Ben being clearly outside of the box?

I didn't even see the Holmes "Lebron" impersonation when it happened. How in the hell did they not nail him for 15? That is ALWAYS a penalty and they blew it. The whole "It was late and they had quit looking at him" is a lame excuse.

Not reviewing the final play when Warner's arm was going forward was a complete joke. I thought they've always said that the booth just decides if they play is worthy of review and the Referee actually looks at it and reviews it.

You guys can kiss rear end all you want, but the Cardinals got hosed just like the Seahawks.

Are you going to bother answering any of our questions regarding your conduct or? Perhaps you should hang up your basketball stripes, I'm not sure you have the ability to view things objectively.

Yeah, you're right. I'm not able to referee basketball because of the NFL. How silly of me.

My conduct? I'm not the one who got overwhelmed in the Super Bowl last night.

Na, that's okay. Just because someone questions NFL referees, they're considered a "troll".

No, someone that claims they know more than officials, then cannot respond objectively.

From what I understand you are an official that does not work football. You of all people should know better. It is obvious you do not.

Peace

I never said I know more than they do. This is where the disconnect is I guess. I'm saying they screwed up. It doesn't take an NFL referee or even a football referee to figure out when NFL referees screw up.

If you are saying they screwed up you have to give more reasons than, "I just did not like that call." Or "They should have called this a foul."

If they screwed up, explain how. Or better yet, give us the rules or interpretations that show the officials did not do what they should of. You have to do better than, "I have been watching football for....years and I never have seen that called."

Do you think the "average fan" knows the sport you work better than you do, just because of what they have seen?

Peace

Maybe, maybe not. But it sure helps.

You are being very disingenuous now. You've accused NFL officials as a whole as being incompetent and blantantly biased. And you have done so on more than one ocassion.

So shouldn't you stop officiating basketball since I'm sure quite a few fans, coaches, and players have made the same statements about you after watching one of your games? (and don't say they haven't because it has happened to every official who has ever worn stripes.)
