Patriot Officiating calls

What's with the refs always pushing for the Patriots. I cannot believe the crap calls that they've made just in the fourth quarter?

I wonder how long the Seahawks will maintain the pace. 108-17 in two games. YIKES.

When my teams used to blame it on the officials, I always responded...
play better, don't ALLOW them to influence the games and take it out of their hands...

but what do I know. I root for America's Yo-Yo champs. the cowgirls

I try to be a football fan but sometimes the refs make that very hard to do.

I have no loyalty except to the Packers and then I try not to comment if the refs go hog wild.

The refs usually make bad calls if it affects my team. Think there might be a
correlation there?....Go 9ers

My point was in the game the other night I cared not who won. I was just making an observation on a game involving two teams. There was a helmet to helmet call that had no helmet contact, a pass interference call when all both players did was get the feet tangled running down the field. A roughing the passer call where the ball was about a 1/4 inch from the QBs hand. Two missed and very obvious intentional groundings so I think the refs are not living up to their new contract.

I'm also a Dallas Cowboys fan, and of course Cowgirls. Have been since the early 70's. Ah! Those were the good ol' days.

How would ya'll like to be in my Son's house. Son is Houston Texans's fan, Daughter-in-law is from Cheetowaga, NY and is a Buffalo Bills fan. My 12 year old Granddaughter is a die-hard Patriots fan. The youngest GD just wishes they were playing soccer or dolls. There are some anxious moments around the TV when any of those teams oppose each other.

Yeah! I have seen what can be described as bad calls. It would be nice to go back to the old days and not have that giant screen capable of instant playback. Then it is in the eye of the beholder. Then, everyone rooting for a team is against the call, and all those who want the other team to win are applauding the call.

I have never refereed football, but I have umpired many a game from "T" ball to High School Base Ball, and I can tell you that you call them as you see them. You may not always be right, but you will be right more times than wrong. It is pretty easy to get the parents to heckle to a minimum extent. Just warn them twice, then forfeit the game if it continues. Word gets out, bad and good calls are made, life goes on.

I have all the respect I can muster for professional umpires and referees.
