Illegal kick by R 15 on Redskins onside kick at end of game not called. No focus by crew and clearly missed it. Very poor.
In the Green Bay vs Dallas game at the end, why did Green Bay have to call a time out to get the replay official to review the play? It seems that the replay official is on the take. He wasn’t going to review the final Dallas interception. The clock was stopped so why didn’t he review? I don’t think that replay official should be permitted to do anymore Dallas games.
Bengals’ punter is out with what was reported as a jaw fracture gif of hit.
Aren’t punters considered defenseless during and after a kick? (12-2-7a-6) “Players in a defenseless posture are…(6) A kicker/punter during the kick or during the return”
Hey, what’s the deal on the new rule on peel back blocks? Nick Foles got called for an illegal peel back block, negating a TD today in Eagles-Vikings game. GIF here: http://thebiglead.com/2013/12/15/nick-foles-got-called-for-this-personal-foul-negating-a-4th-and-1-touchdown-on-a-reverse/
It is unreal to me the actions of the officials in response to the last Williams interception. The nearest official emphatically motioned incorrectly that it was an incomplete pass and not one of the other officials seemed remotely interested in correcting the call on the field. It is inexcusable that McCarthy had to call a time-out to force the reply booth to take action and do their job. Equally as troubling is the amount of time it took to reverse the call on the field since it was clearly an interception. It was as if the officials were looking for ANY possible justification to validate the incorrect call on the field. In the end, the official who had to announce that the call was reversed did so with such deep despair that you have to wonder what “arrangement” from Jerry Jones was just utterly lost.
The Steelers getting away with a personal foul on a return? What a shocker.
And Matthew, I can sum up all that happened in the 4th quarter of the Packers/Cowboys game with this: Walt “Tuck Rule” Coleman.
Wow….bad officiating among the deep officials tonight. Missed an illegal block in the back against Detroit on a punt return. Snap at the 13:35 of 3rd Qtr. Foul occurs exactly at the 30 yard line mark right on the number 30 itself. Detroit player pushed the Balt. player (#41)with arms extended clearly in the back sending #41 right past the ball carrier. At the end of the play (13:23-13:22 on game clock) you see #41 turning around looking for a flag.
2. Good call for hit to head by BJ on incomplete pass in 2nd Qtr., but where was the DPI from the FJ (he’s always weak).
3. Blatantly missed arm bar/grab DPI at the 1:57 mark of the 3rd Qtr.(nice montage on bad DPI no-calls of regular, not REPLACEMENT, officials who got a nice, new FAT contract).
Boy, the Umpire and Field judge in this game do not move very well at all. Three times I have seen FJ get run up on by receivers, and a few other times when he’s on the field of play signaling complete.
Well, The obviously missed DPI seems big, doesn’t it? Good thing no replacements were on the game, or else we might be listening to the commentary for another 20 minutes about it.
What about the great Ed Hochuli’s missed call on the hit that put the Bengals punter out of commission for lord who knows how long? What the heck was he looking at? In fact,wtf was the U looking at? I don’t want to hear the excuse the R was transitioning to the GL this illegal hit happened right at the point of attack and you can see the R and the U looking right at it (or they should have been where else should they have been looking???). Ridiculous miss of huge illegal hit, by two officials looking right at it. Missed IBB last nite’s game in Detroit? Missed illegal kick (R blatantly kicks ball away from certain K recovery) in Falcons game onside kick situation at end of game when the focus had better be intense for any situation? It can go on and on and on every single week, Also notice when they F up they no longer say that “The call is reversed?” They just announce “Receiver had both hands under the ball blah blah blah and the result of the play is a catch” What’s up with that? Announce the call was reversed! LMAO we have “confirmed” or “stands” but the word “reversal” is out of the language now. What about all the big bellies we see every week on TV? I thought these guys had to pass a physical which included some very intense running and display of movement and if you couldn’t cut it you were out? Oh, wait – that was just a requirement for the guys who helped out at the beginning of last year’s season. The officiating this season, ever since the contract was signed, has been horrendous. No accountability on being overweight. I mean, the guts are disgusting on 1/3 of these officials. These guys would be getting the annual “fat letter” that officials in college ball get at the end of the year. The officiating has been an embarrassment this year, the worse ever seen and that includes the replacement time. Yet the media remains silent. What a joke.
You are a fucking pussy. The Redskins are the Redskins. Call them by name.
