  1. Craig Wrolstad with another well-deserved prime time game. He’s got to be the odds on favorite for SB50 at this rate, am I right fellow Zebras!?

  2. Alex K: my gut says that whoever draws the Packers/Broncos game in 2 weeks is the favourite for SB50. But Wrolstad should definitely be included in the discussion.

  3. please…Steratore (his crew) has already made several poor decisions (missed a 12 man on field for example), and GS is so damn arrogant. Ask ANY clock operators/head table workers in the Big Ten about his “presence” on the BB court.

  4. Alex: It is Wrolstad’s second season. He has never had a playoff game (as a referee) so I don’t even think he is eligible for the Super Bowl. He is a very good official and his time will come.

  5. But it will not be Wrolstad, Anon. He has already done games featuring the Broncos and Packers.

    I predict Tony Corrente will do the game.

  6. Jerome! Come on buddy, really? Week after week after week I read your comments sliming the Gene. Are you jealous, perhaps a man crush. You have way too much time on your hands. Find something productive to use your football talents for. How about you see how much money you can make on fan duel, etc. Give it a rest already! Steratore is just as qualified and experienced as his fellow refs, as well as any past refs.

  7. It’s time to get rid of Gomer Pyle, I mean Triplette to be canned. Enough is enough of his bad crew…..

  8. I can assure you it the officials for SB50 will not all be from the same crew. I also can say for certain that no rookie officials will be assigned . Playoff and super bowl assignments will be made based on season long grades given to each official. There will be 28 officials assigned for the wild card,and the divisional rounds. While 14 officials will be assigned to the championship round

  9. Steratore is cocky and arrogant…that’s all. Oh, and he needs to pull his long sleeves ALL THE WAY down to his wrists like everyone else, not half-way down his forearm.

  10. Steratore (or as he is known by some mean folk in PA “Ichabod Crane”) could improve his on field appearance by standing still when announcing a foul.

  11. Wrolstad and Torbert are not eligible for the playoffs or suoerbowl. Refs need at least 10 years experience. Someone correct me if I’m wrong

  12. Wrong Greg they do not need 10 years to get a super bowl. Generally as a rule rookie officials are not assigned to playoff games however all playoff officials are assigned based strictly on the scores they receive throughout the season in the games they call. The playoff crews are not regular crews for an example Jeff Triplett may the referee for the Saturday AFC Wild card game while the umpire may be from Torbet’s crew and the head linesman may be from Walt Coleman’s crew and the line judge may come from wrolstad’s crew and the back judge from morrelli’s crew
