    Washington/ Packers. Horrible calls.. Seriously. We can only stand so much. The learning curve is over people. If you cant call the game properly, you need to find another profession.

    After the last Clay Matthews call in the 3rd quarter of the Redskins game…I am 100% done with the NFL. Will NEVER again watch any NFL game (because of the refs and your stupid rules which you can never call on both sides). DONE done! I will never use my Discover card again because they advertise on the NFL. You have totally ruined the Professional football experience for the fans. The NFL is completely out of control. Bye! NEVER again. I was a fan for for 50 years and I am D-O-N-E. That last call on Clay Matthews during the Redskins game on Sept 23rd was the final straw. You ruined the game. Bye!

    The overall officiating this season has been horrible. Thou I am a Cleveland Browns fan I watch quite a few games every week and can not understand how a side or back judge misses a player moving 3 yards before the snap. With all the talk about hits to the head the ref in Cleveland on Sunday said because the QB was beyond the line of scrimmage the hit to the head was allowed. Really? He should be unemployed as well. At the very least he should get a hit to the head like that. If, we the fans, performed like that at our jobs we would be terminated. Unions always stick up for the dead weight in any organization, better clean up your house before you wreck the game. Your getting closer to doing just that every week.

    The refs are ruinine the game. Letting the helmet to helmet hit during saints and Cowboys game is inexcusable. Players get hurt and they are to blame because they are afraid to call it. Good live and games being lost.

    Can someone explain the ruling on the spot of the ball on the Bronco’s successful 2 pt. try in yesterday’s game?
    If I found the right section in the rule book, here’s what the NFL says:


    If a foul results in a retry, Team A will have the option to enforce the penalty from the spot where it attempted the try (previous spot) or from the yard line for the other try option.

    So after the Bronco’s had the 5 yard delay of game penalty before they tried original the 2pt. conversion, they had the chance to try for two points from the 7 yard line, or try for 1 pt, snapping from the 20. As you know, they tried for 1 from the 20, but the Bears were offside – another 5 yard penalty. They now opted to go for 2. Why was that 5 yard offside penalty not enforced as 1/2 the distance from 7 yard line (where the previous try would have been had they been going for 2)? That should have put them at the 3-1/2 line for a 2 pt try. Instead, they got the ball at the one yard line – half the distance from the original 2pt spot – and converted. Am I missing something? Seems like a mistake. Please explain if you can.

    How is it possible that Gary Colliveto is an alternate ref in the Houston-Buffalo game. He missed the biggest call in playoff history. He should not be a ref at all much less be an official in a playoff game.

    Alamo Bowl CU v Texas
    No targeting on 0 in third quarter? What a joke. That was plainly targeting. This type of non-call that could have paralyzed a defenseless player is going to kill the sport we love. Someone should do something.

    Are there any number amongst NFL officials that have been retired?
