    I have to ask due to the horrible memories from last year in Denver. All I want is quality, even-handed officiating for this game. Hopefully we get a competent crew instead of a bunch of morons.

    If it's Triplette again, you will find me Sunday morning on my floor, dead. The autopsy will reveal I swallowed my entire silverware drawer.

    Hope its not Ed Hoculi a.k.a the Buff ref . . . he and Merriman probably have some mutual friends.

    Reiss usually has that info the day before the game.

    I can almost see the logic in not wanting the best referee in the NFL to ref our game. :confused:

    I'd love Hochuli. He's got a bit of an ego, but he can control a game and he's fair. He'll slap down both sides equally if they get out of hand. I loved his call in the Titans game where he called out the Titan player for a personal foul for first contact and didn't just lazily bust both players. He's the NFL version of Earl Strom.

    He's also one of the best at explaining challenges to the crowd. Each time he thouroughly explains how he reached his decision. Here's one from a JAX/MIN game a couple of years ago;

    "The issue on a play like that is whether the ball was firmly gripped in the quarterback's hand when his hand starts forward," Hochuli said through his stadium microphone. "After reviewing the play, the ball had been knocked loose and was on the palm of his hand and pushed forward. Therefore, the ruling on the field stands as called. It's a touchdown."

    Tony Corrente and crew. They've worked zero Pats games this season...and 1 Charger vs 9er game (16 penalties). They're considered middle of the pack (not highly rated or poor). Look out for defensive flags...

    I just hope the back judge isn't Greg Sneed.

    You guessing or you know this how? And if you do, you mean the couldn't find a crew chief from outside Southern California???

    Corrente resides in La Mirada, California and teaches high school social sciences outside of his NFL officiating duties.

    Corrente's 2006 NFL officiating crew consists of Steve Wilson, John McGrath, Ron Blum, Craig Wrolstad, Doug Toole, and Don Carey.

    I would think it's very unlikely to be Hochuli's crew. He's got the superbowl next year (I think he deferred this year so that he could have it in his hometown next year), which almost certainly means he'll have a league championship game this year. Not necessarily, but probably.

    Triplette, Anderson, Vinovich, and Morelli's crews are all done for the year, unless one of them has the Superbowl. (Unlikely for anyone but Anderson.)

    Corrente was the standby referree for last year's superbowl. He was also promoted to ref extremely quickly, so he's a rising star and it would be surprising if he did not get one of the next 7 games, so he's as good a guess as any.

    I would also think that Carey, Austin, Nemmers, Coleman, and McAuley get work this year. Winter may still be in the doghouse. I'd like to see Winter get another chance in the playoffs. Morelli got another chance this year despite last year's issues, so it's time to let Winter back. If the poster who suggested it was Corrente knows that for a fact, I can live with that, but I'd also take Winter. If he comes back, he's not going to be looking to make headlines, which is just fine with me.

    Steratore and Bogers, the rookies, probably get to watch on tv this year. Leavy got the superbowl last year, so I'm not sure whether he'll get a game this year.

    Boy did Vinovich do a nice job in his rookie playoff game. I'd take him again.

    Mike Carey would be a good choice, if we miss him here he'd be good for the AFCCG.
