    So the Refs are human too

    We ,as Cyclone fans, have been conditioned to expect the worst...Turns out the refs feel the same way. On any judgment call, they just assume we are at fault. The whole country just figures the Cyclones are gonna screw things up... so they call us for more penalties. Heck...Bruns still has feelings about him getting screwed on plays a decade ago.

    these refs were a bunch of bozos. even a blind man could do a better job of refereeing than these bozos..

    They are trained to do their job, and tonight they failed to do that. Repeatedly. If I was that ****** at my job, I'd fire myself.

    Re: So the Refs are human too

    I think I heard on the call-in show that at least one of them lives in Des Moines. I don't expect to be getting all the calls but there is no way that a team can go 1 penalty for 5 yards. No matter how good you are, there is always a mistake somewhere. Maybe a horse collar or a intentional grounding........

    and the facemask that was overturned....absolute bull ****. glad to see CPR was able to overcome another mistake filled game and pull out a win. we are 3-0 right now but we could easily be 0-3 as well so ill take the wins no matter how we get them right now

    The facemask really got me going. How does a ref throw a flag for something he obviously saw, then have another ref tell him he didn't see it? They could claim to have missed a few of the other calls, but pick up a flag makes no sense.
