    NFL Offciating

    Is it me or are these officials horrible in the Packers Giants game?

    The horrible non-fumble call, the spot on the last 3rd down for the Giants. Also appears the they are missing holding calls all over the field.


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    Re: NFL Offciating

    On an incompletion by Eli in the endzone that set up a field goal, a Packers D-lineman was all out hands to the face of his blocker. Blatantly pushing the guys face back.

    I don't get too up in arms about missing a hold or a bad spot because they don't have a birds eye view, but how was that 1st half fumble by GB missed? I wonder if they replay official just didn't have the angle that clearly showed it came out.

    Totally agree and the replay booth has been awful - I'm constantly stunned after plays are reviewed and I'm certain the play will be reversed or confirmed and it goes the other way.

    If they in the booth or under the hood don't have the same angles that I have sitting on my sofa, something's seriously wrong.

    Fumble, 3rd down spot, blow to the head on Rodgers... refs did all they could to keep Packers in this one.

    Really bad in this game. Not even a late hit on Rodgers, let alone a blow to the head. And the obvious Jennings fumble. Beyond me how that was not over turned.

    On the 3rd down spot, I couldn't believe NY didn't challenge that or that the announcers didn't question it. The only thing I can think is that the Giants' coaching staff figured there was no way they were going to win a challenge no matter what.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    This has been a low spot for NFL refs. They may go to full time refs. Enough lawyers and business types appear to be ineffectual.

    Full-time refs + age limit and/or physical fitness requirements. Some of those geezers can barely run.
