One thought on “Wild Card liveblog: Raiders at Texans

  1. I’m astounded at the lack of mention or criticism of Torbert and crew. This was a horribly officiated game. A well officiated game according to Schultz? You must not have watched much. Missed calls, bad calls, many against Oakland. Gives Raider fans fodder for their beef with the NFL and this time they are right. In 4th quarter Cook took a blow to the head and a face mask on the same play with no call. And it was not a continuous action but two separate actions within the play and neither was called. Cook was visibly isolated and the penalties were obvious. There are more examples but why bother. Your site basically just gave a play-by-play of the game with no scrutiny of the work of the officials. I can get play-by-play anywhere. There were several PI and defensive holding calls that were missed or called wrong. The PI on Amerson giving Houston the ball at the one leading to their last TD? Hopkins had hands extended while holding Amerson firmly with his left hand and then pushing off and it’s PI against Oakland? Rivera of oakland was just called for an invisible offensive PI yet the Amerson call was called on the wrong player. Where is your objectivity and criticism of poor performance by officials? The officials are a big big part of the declining ratings in the NFL. I’m embarrassed for officials and referees of all kinds of which I was once one. Integrity and the NFL clearly don’t go together.
