    Hate to bring it up. But does anyone know the crew yet for this weekend? It's an allstar (whatever that means) crew. Many refs keep fu..... surfacing in these games and I'm compiling a list of the most consistent offenders.

    Jeff Tripplet was the ref during that game but I think it was Gregory Steed (Back Judge) who called the bogus penalty against Samuel. The gamebook does not show which ref called the penalty. There has to be more accountability and a PUBLIC record of WHICH refs make these horrendous calls.

    Steed and Triplette will both be in New England this weekend for the game.

    These guys better not screw up again. Two years in a row the Pats have lost to the Broncos/Colts/Officials. Hopefully not this time.

    Lets say you were a terrible employee. Always screwing up. When given simple instructions, you can't finish the job without having problems. Yet, despite everyone knowing how useless you are, the boss seems to like you. If you were given a name for being this incapable, it would be:

    Jeff Triplette

    In my opinion, he's one of the worst referees in the NFL.

    All I ask is that he doesn't try to blind some of our offensive lineman.

    "The Pats led 3-0 when Jake Plummer threw deep from the New England 40 for Ashley Lelie. Asante Samuel, who had already picked off Plummer, was running stride for stride with Lelie. He turned his head back as he ran and maintained perfect position. As the ball came down, Lelie put his right hand on Samuel's shoulder pad and tugged, pulling the smaller defender into him. Still, Samuel kept his feet as the ball landed harmlessly in the end zone seven yards beyond the players. The official right on top of the play correctly called nothing.
    A thousand one.
    A thousand two.
    A thousand three.
    And then from out of nowhere a flag flies into the frame. The officials confer and one seems to be trying to talk the other out of making a terrible mistake. But, alas, he can't. The yellow has been thrown — obviously in error — and instead of rectifying the mistake, the officials basically award the Broncos the game's first touchdown by giving them first-and-goal at the one. From where the flag came from, I assumed it was thrown by the back judge, a suspicion confirmed by CBS analyst Phil Simms. So I would like to ask Greg Sneed what he saw or thought he saw that would make him so confident in his call that he would be willing to give a team seven points in a 3-0 game. Why, Greg Sneed, why? And if you were so confident in your call, Greg Sneed, what took you so long to throw the flag?"

    why can we not have Ed Hochuli? I don't get it. He is by far and away the best ref in the league and yet we never have him (have we had him once this year? I thought maybe once but I can't remember). The reason = NFL is a game of complicated rules with underlying reasons that lawyers understand better, and call the game better. I really do not understand the system under which the NFL assigns its refs.

    Mike Carey is really good too. I'd feel pretty good if it were him or Hoculi.

    If we win on Sunday, you'll get your wish for the next game.

    At the risk of repeating myself too many times, the ref is not the guy you care about. These are all start crews, so just because it's Hochuli in a game doesn't mean it's his crew, etc.

    Some stats on triplette's crew this year:

    Chargers at Patriots: Jeff Triplette. Tied for 5th out of 17 for best ref for the home team's winning rate (67%). Near the bottom in penalties per game (14th) and yards per penalty (15th) so of course near the bottom in penalty yards per game (15th). 4th-most for percent of penalties called against the visiting team (55%). Middle of the pack (9th) in total points scored per game and near the top (4th) in home team points scored per game. Near the bottom (16th) in amount of penalty yards called against the home team at just 36.8 per game. Tied at the top in the percent of his games in which the visiting team had more penalties than the home team (70%). Overall, home teams did pretty will in Jeff's games during the regular season with not so many penalties called per game -- especially few called against the home team.

    As a college football official I like these stats, in particular the low number of penalties. The philosophy of the officials I respect is "get the trainwrecks", we don't need ticky tack calls. Pats are playing the Chargers, not the refs anyway.

    I wouldn't mind penalty calls being reviewable with a challenge only. The coach's would understand that they would have to only challenge the most obscene calls as overwhelming majority would not be overturned, but those phatom calls might be - or at least it would open the officials to further scrutiny if they didn't overturn these %#@ calls.

    How do you get info like this? And is it based on his crew or him individually?

    NFL 2007 Referee Statistics (including all regular season games)
    Here are the final NFL referee statistics for the 2007 regular season, including all regular season games:

    Possible relationship between the number of penalties called and the rate the home team wins for a particular referee. The strong correlation between the number of penalties per game and the rate the home team wins as usual came out with a positive correlation -- it decreased a bit toward the end of the year but ended up with 0.216.

    Referees by penalties accepted per game (followed by home win rate):
    Ron had a huge lead and kept the top spot to be the 2007 leader in penalties per game. Notice many of the referees who call lots of penalties also have a high win rate for home teams.
    Ron Winter (14.3, 40%)
    Tony Corrente (13.3, 73%)
    Walt Anderson (12.7, 60%)
    Jerome Boger (12.5, 73%)

    and at the bottom, Gerald locked up the title and kept it to the end:
    Jeff Triplette (10.6, 67%)
    Bill Carollo (9.8, 63%)
    Pete Morelli (9.7, 33%)
    Gerald Austin (8.9, 50%)

    Referees by home win-rate: if you believe the referee has some influence (perhaps an unintentional tendency) on whether the home team wins, then use this list. Here's the list, again with the penalties per game followed by the home team's win-rate. Terry McAulay kept his lead and home teams did the best in games where Terry was the referee:
    Terry McAulay (12.1, 75%)
    Tony Corrente (13.3, 73%)
    Jerome Boger (12.5, 73%)
    John Parry (12.1, 73%)

    And at the bottom, Green Bay broke through the Peter Morelli curse by winning as a home team one of his games. The home teams went 5-10 in Peter's games this year, winning the first two, losing the next seven, winning two, losing three, and winning the last one.
    Bill Leavy (12.1, 45%)
    Ron Winter (14.3, 40%)
    Mike Carey (11.8, 40%)
    Pete Morelli (9.7, 33%)

    So, if you like the home team, hope for Terry McAulay, Tony Corrente, Jerome Boger, and John Parry. If you like the visiting team, hope for Pete Morelli but also good are Bill Leavy, Ron Winter, and Mike Carey. Of course, this is only if you think particular referee crews are better for home teams than others.

    And here is some end-of-year extra data for you -- in order are the following statistics for each referee -- penalties accepted per game, penalty yards per game, average yards per penalty, percent penalties called against visiting team, total points scored, visiting team points, home team points, home team win rate. Post a comment if you request other types of data or want any particular theory investigated or calculations run!
