  1. It Is the Football Zebra website, not NFl.com, if it is important to them to make a distinction live with it or see if you can make them change their minds. I think I like where they stand on this issue: 🙂

  2. I agree it should be the team name (and I’m an Eagles fan)- minus the language of course – he was out of line with that. Wasn’t the Redskins given their name way back when by Jim Thorpe, an Indian himself, as a tribute??? Correct me if I have my history wrong…..

  3. Hopefully Walt Coleman and Crew will call and even handed honest game on Sunday and not over penalize the Hawks while under penalizing the Panthers as his cronies have done in the last few games. I would like to finally see the refs call a fair game this season where the Seahawks are concerned.

  4. Roger – I wouldn’t worry about the Hawks this year too much. They’re playing like they’re off the adderall… Lol

  5. Clocks went back to GMT this weekend, so there was a 4 hour difference. Much better for all involved. This will need to be the default KO time if the “London franchise” happens.

  6. So the Red Mesa High School Redskins and their football team is a racial slur. I don’t think so. Ask the predominantly Native American high school in Arizona if “Redskins” is a racial slur. It’s the name of the team and of Washington’s team. Get over it. Redskins.

  7. Morelli’s crew botched the London game…delay of game called on last play?…Stafford had three different snaps with zero on the game clock during the game and never called…..team doesn’t execute play, misses field goal, gets penalized, oh wait here try another kick….wow…..flag should have never came out…not even close to the three other plays that were clearly delay of game…

  8. John Parry crew did the Colts-Steelers game. There were many defensive holding calls on both sides. Is this crew leading the list in this category?

  9. Have seen MULTIPLE questionable calls over past several weeks, including today’s Cowboys-Cards game. Some of these calls have definitely impacted numerous games.
