    I am not just talking about Pats games, There were a lot of BS calls today.
    The call towards the end of Skins-VaGiants game. The face mask call on the Vikings which negated the winning FG, Cardinals getting robbed....... One can go on and on about how bad the officiating has become. I wonder what Roger "NY" Goodell will do to correct this problem.

    Your right. They need full time professionally trained referees. Its a billion dollar business that needs full time professional regulation. Not my friends uncle that does it part time.
    Its very out of hand.
    They are wrongly changing the playoff map and teams futures. NE should have been 11-1 and top seed and NO should be 10-1, maybe. Very disapointed.
    I know no fan in NO or NE that mines loosing by being beaten by a better team that day. But when the refs change games it can be infuriating, because we all just want a fair game.

    and it makes all our fans look like we are poor sports, when we rant about legitimately bad calls. Because the other fans just make fun of us and take the win.

    Triplette “I feel like we signaled third down. The stakes just got moved incorrectly.”

    I feel like? lol What a load of garbage, Obviously they were moved incorrectly because 1st down was signaled.

    Triplette is the worst. He's the one who made the infamous "face guarding" penalty, and then did not call a touch back when Ben Watson punched the ball out of Champ Bailey's hands through the end zone in that infamous Denver playoff game at the end of the 2005 season. Incredible that he still has a job. Every time I see him I expect some major screw up. He invented the term, "Adventures in Officiating."

    I think the worst call of the day was the made-up intentional grounding against KC when Alex Smith was two yards outside of the pocket.

    The facemask call against Minnesota was legit. The TE got his hands inside the facemask and ripped the defender's head. Good call!

    Nothing, because there are no problems.

    At least in prior years, the League would leave bad calls in the public domain or acknowledge mistakes. This year seems to offer after-the-fact public statements attempting to justify and explain the calls that are incredibly lame. Say nothing or own the mistake.

    When you hear announcers saying "Oh, that was pass interference but the refs are letting these teams play playoff football" there is a problem. why wont the refs just call ALL games like playoff games and "let the guys play" because they clearly suck at regular season refereeing.

    The league will sweep it under the rug and do a everything was 'the right call" media campaign.

    On a side note, I felt the fact that the refs kept the flags in their pockets in the Pats/Texans game yesterday was about as bad as these awful penalties. There were two penalties called yesterday (a helmet to helmet roughing the passer on Brooks Reed on Brady and a blatant offensive pass inteference), but there should have been a bunch more on both sides most notably the interfering with the returner when the defender ran into Edelman when he signaled a fair catch.

    I think there is a point where "letting the players play" is counter productive. This was the reverse of some of the bad officiating we have seen, but about as bad.

    Then you blow the whistle, stop the play and get it right. When the yard markers are moved and the down sticks are incorrect, your job as an official is to make it right.....

    Why do I have a feeling we'll probably see him on Sunday?? Better then, than in a playoff game.....

    The fair catch thing has been a pet peeve of mine for about 2 years now. They were letting guys get close and now that everyone has gotten used to playing 'close' to the punt returner; the coverage players are pushing the envelope and there is NO REF PUSHBACK.

    The old college halo rule needs to be put back in or one of these days a returner is going to get killed by having his neck bent looking in the air while somebody who didnt bother to see the fair catch is going to spear him.

    The NFL goes on-and-on about WRs being defenseless; when the PRs really most are. WRs get a little bit of choice about their route and can juke the defender w/ dbl moves etc. The PR HAS TO GO WHERE THE PUNT IS LANDING.

    Since bad officiating goes all the way back to the leather helmet era, it appears that Goodell is happy with the status quo.

    Nobody else has tried to fix it, why would he ? We'll keep watching, and he'll keep counting the money.

    Triplette is just making his case for the Super Bowl. Gotta be the worst if you want to work the big game.

    The rules are too subjective to officiate consistently and there are just way too many ways to commit a foul in football, so much so that getting/not getting a call is as much a part of the game as the actual play. There is really no objective defining line between blocking and holding, physical play and interference, incidental contact and leading with the head and so on. I don't think they can do much about it other than dramatically redesign rules to make it less subjective. For the time being we just have to hope that we get more calls than the other team.

    The fact that Fox employs Pereira and advertises during games that he''ll go over all the "controversial calls" of the day really tells you all you need to know about this.
