Good luck to John Hussey who is officiating his first regular season game as Referee.
Good luck to all!
Good Luck to Sarah Thomas for her first regular game in NFL
Jeff Triplette is the best ref in the NFL. He should be calling Super Bowl 50 this season.
Alec Barnett is spot on. Jeff Triplette is one of the finest officials and deserves that big game
Bill Vinovich getting the big SNF game again! He is the best referee in the NFL the amount of high profile games he has had the past season he excelled!! And now opens with one of the biggest clashes on SNF wow!
as usual the cowgirls get the first SNF game. and another year of dumb fox blondes.
Good Luck to the Steratore Brothers The two best NFL Officials that i know
We get your opinion Nick. No need to keep saying it. Enjoy the games
Thank you refguy! It is old…..
Alex and Tim- you can’t be serious……
Triplette’s the best? Are you high? He’s the worst referee I’ve ever seen. Screwed over my Redskins on many occasions. Believe me, we can lose on our own. We don’t need his help. Redskins/Giants last year with RG3’s TD run reversed. Questionable personal foul call vs NE in 2011. I could go on. He’s sucks. I pray he doesn’t officiate any of my team’s games this year but I know they won’t be the case.
So Joe, I guess the Patriots cheated by paying off Jeff Triplette.
I’m taking my father to his first NFL game this weekend in Tampa Bay. Excited to see John Hussey white hat his first NFL Regular season game. He will do well as he has his entire career.
Good luck #35. The first of many games.
Who is the oldest referee in the NFL currently?
Are you guys at Football Zebras going over to the political correctness BS? if your going to use team names, then you use them all! There called the Redskins!,,,
Walt Colemand ???
Anyone know why Jim DeBell isn’t working this season
Who retired to have John Hussey promoted?
Seabekid is right. It’s the Redskins..as in “Walt Coleman will be doing the REDSKINS-Dolphins game”. Is that to offensive for FB Zebra to type? The “we’ll call them Washington” nonsense makes them hard to take seriously. I keep seeing anti-Redskins PC garbage on TV & online, yet I’ve yet to meet even one football fan in real life who is in favor of changing the name. Talk about a media manufactured non-issue.
John Hussey officiated like a rookie to the point where it was embarrassing. The entire crew made mistakes. I would be interested in seeing their ratings.
Nick, you must only know 2 officials total if that is your opinion of the Steratore’s. now, the most arrogant and cocky, then I am on board. I’ve met them both, BTW.
JEROME LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING THAT YOU DON’T KNOW
GENE IS ONE OF THE NICEST REFEREES IN THE NFL BIZ THAT YOU WILL EVER MEET
Not unless you work the clocks at his games (his brother is even worse). They act entitled and as if the operators are ‘below’ them.
Bill Leavy is no longer a referee making room for Hussey. I saw the Titans/Bucs game and thought Hussey did just fine. There was one rather funny part. He was on the defensive side of the ball away from the line of scrimmage explaining a call (don’t remember exactly what) and I guess the players and other refs weren’t paying attention, lined up, and nearly snapped the ball. He had to stop mid-explanation and say “Hey, hold on a minute….”
Cmon. Lets be real here. Hussein blew at least three calls in the game. If that is your perception of fine you don’t understand football. They were reactive and threw flags just for the sake of it. Awful performance and their evaluation marks will show that. He is over his head. Mark my words.
Thank You. Ready for week two.
