    So, who here thinks that the refs are going to be a deciding factor in this game like they have been in previous match-ups between these two teams? The officiating in last year's game was among the worst I have ever seen in an NFL game, with the refs seeming to do just about everything in their power to hand the game to the Colts. The fact that we won just goes to show how great our team was last year. Am I the only one who is worried that this might be the case again this year, especially considering how shoddy the officiating has been throughout the NFL this season?

    I hope the Krafts mailed their check to the refs before the deadline.

    I just hope Bills check was bigger then Krafts. seriously I hope the refs don't decide this game, I know we got our fair share of calls over the years, actually probably more then our fair share, and lately they have been making up for it this year..

    My theory is that along with the crowd noise BP was pumping in subliminal messages to the refs to make calls against the visiting team. Those apparently didn't move from the RCA to the LOSer Dome.

    I was about to say the same thing. I watch a lot of Colts games every year and far to often they seem to have the game called in their favor, in particular the lack of PI called against and for them.

    But I haven't noticed anything that I would call egregious for or against them. All though I did have the luxery of listening to the Colts home radio broadcast via Sirius while watching it on my laptop (no sound on the laptop) when they played the Jags in week 3. I have to say that those radio announcers where the whiniest b*tches I have ever heard. And had I not watched the game and only listened to the broadcast I would have thought that it was the worst officiated game in the history of the NFL.

    And for the record every call they *****ed about was in fact the correct call!

    OMG you had to listen to Lamey..he sucks most of us can't stand listening to him. I agree that all the calls in the Jags game were correct.

    The pats always seem to get bad calls when playing the Colts.

    I'm hoping it may sometime even out soon.:eek:

    I'm sure it will be a phenomenally officiated game just like all previous games in Indianapolis.

    The fact that the above statement can not be taken seriously says a lot.

    Let's not be like these other whiny fans when it comes to officials. We've gotten a few lucky breaks with late hits and such not being called this season. Plus, the Pats still won last year even though they got the most penalty yards in franchise history.

    Of course, I'm sure said whiny fans will ignore it if the Pats get a lot of penalties this game, and will go on saying how we pay the refs off.:rolleyes:

    COLTS always get the good calls.

    Remember when Polamalu intercepted Manning and they somehow called it back after the review even though it was ruled an INT on the field and was clearly an INT.

    Christ on a bike. I'd forgotten just how biased the refs were during that game, and we still managed to win.

    Thanks for bringing it all back :(
