    possible reasons seem to be that Boger is black? but nothing else really seems to be special

    maybe all 8 downgrades were wrong? unlikely but possible

    If they wanted a black referee, why not just use Mike Carey? He's bad, but he's not 8 downgrades bad.

    What are the chances of being wrong eight out of eight times?

    I was about to write, "It's not Booger, it's Goober." Never mind, close enough.

    If they needed a black ref for the Super Bowl, why not Mike Carey?:/

    I am dubious of the NFL's claim that he didn't make a single mistake all year...

    After watching the officiating today, I agree with you.

    I fully gave up on trying to criticize the NFL. They are going to do whatever they want and the only way to second guess them is with a lawsuit. If the Patriots weren't such an awesome team I probably wouldn't even watch football.
