6 thoughts on “Week 5 referee assignments”
Ron Winters crew in Indianapolis performed poorly today, especially the back judge calling interference penalties. Several penalties called on Seattle were phantom penalties, giving the appearance that this particular judge was biased. One call in particular on Golden Tate was of real concern. The ref was not in position to make the call and Tate, the offensive player, did not touch the Colt defender andwas called for offensive interference. Replays from all angles proved the call was incredibly poor. This ref is not young, and perhaps should not be officiating. He made several key calls during the game, notably to the Colts benefit.
The blocked punt for a safety should have been called a touchdown, again proven by all replays. The officials even had the opportunity to get that one correct and blew it.
Ultimately, when I see such poor performing referees I am sure the outcome of the game will be in question. Ron Winter, get a grip on your crew! You guys sucked today!
Didn’t see the pass interference calls, so I can’t comment on that.
In our Quick Calls, we found the punt block was ruled properly. The player did not maintain control of the ball long enough for a recovery to be ruled.
