Sure...no problem.

We're getting used to officials missing calls to decide games this season.


What was wrong this week? Everyone agrees you guys were screwed in Seattle.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

What happened, gentlemen?

INDY by a field goal at the end...but it was really decided earlier when INDY was allowed to hold PACK receivers or else defensive lineman the entire 2nd half without any call.

In other words...nothing new. ;)

It's getting easier each week to "predict" how various games will turn out - almost like someone is "controlling" the outcomes.

By the way...I've seen 3 games so far and the same holds true for all 3 games.

Sounds like whiny Packers fans to me. They can't accept mediocrity, so they blame the officials, the NFL, & soon, probably George W. Bush. :P

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

So, your kicker was "controlled" to miss? :lol:

really...the whole country saw (and almost all announcers on every sports channel) already saw 2 games that were horrendous...1 by the rent-a-refs and 1 by regular refs. No need to whine, it's quite obvious what's happening. It's not just the Packers either.

Nope.

The were controlled to look the other way on no less than 5 holding calls that even the announcers saw...2 of which led to scores by INDY. It's getting to be the 2012 Mantra - physicality wins games, not rules.

I guess the NFL figured a "feel good game for the Coach" was a better headline. If it was just one game that would be something, but I saw 3 other teams in the same boat today - games decided by refs asleep that led to winning scores.

Woodson got away with a few today too so stop belly aching. Accept your team as is. That's really low to bring up Paganos illness too. Poor taste.

Quite true.

But you missed the point. It's not with just one team or one game. It seems like a number of games have some rent-a-refs based on some of the stuff they are missing. Maybe they're just rusty.

Still complaining about officials? Color me unsurprised. Why did I know the complaining wouldn't change a bit when the "real" refs came back?

Meanwhile...

Green Bay...

I'm not a hater.. but let's be honest... Watching Green Bay ALL last season, and now thus far this season... Can you honestly say they are doing anything differently?

Think about it...

Yeah, they were 15-1 last season... but every single week most of us were watching and saying... man... Rodgers plays near perfect and they squeak by... IF he ever has a slight drop in performance to reality... they lose. ALL last season, they had shootout games most weeks... and honestly, could have just as easily lost probably half of the games that they won.

This season? Rodgers isn't quite as perfect as he pretty much was last season... the defense seems in some ways to be worse... so there you go... all those games they won in spite of themselves last year... they are losing.

Green Bay is pretty much the same team from where I sit... they didn't fix any of the flaws that they got away with most of last year.

I'll argue much of the same thing for Detroit... Detroit won some shootouts too last year... they are losing them this year. Detroit didn't suddenly turn to crap either... they just aren't getting the breaks they got last year.

Detroit and Green Bay both need to look in the mirror and realize there are a lot of little things they simply are not doing week-to-week...

New Orleans (currently playing) is pretty much in the same boat. Still got a good offense, but still not playing defense for crap... and their thus far 0-4 record shows it... whereas last year they won some of these games.

Who knows how tonight will play out... but I don't think New Orleans is suddenly playing dramatically worse this year either... just a hair worse... and that is making all the difference.

The really good/solid teams? Those teams aren't necessarily impressive week to week... but they are strong in key areas AND seem to improve as the season goes along... instead of just winging it and getting a few breaks until the chips stop falling.

Certainly that's true of a couple of teams.

As a reminder of "things will be better when the real refs are back"...

How 'bout that 49ers v Rams game today?

Some odd ref v clock situations that weren't corrected during that game, eh?

I've seen several things now that I haven't posted about since the real refs returns that frankly would have been expected from the replacements, not the "experienced" guys!

Tim Tebow and Chad Johnson Tweeted heart felt condolences to the Cheifs organization, the fans and the Belcher family. Not so much for the victim or her family I guess. Unreal.

The game should not have been played.

In related news, Bob Costas went on a brief rant advocating gun control. Costas said that if Belcher hadn't had a gun, his girl friend and himself would still be alive. Uh, Bob, if he was hell bent on killing his girl friend and himself, the lack of a gun wouldn't have stopped him from killing. Numerous other methods could have been used.

What got me was all the "he was a heck of a teammate" and "this didn't seem like him" comments from the players.

I would have liked to have heard even ONE comment of "I guess I didn't know him if he was capable of this atrocity".

All good choices - it's amazing some of them lasted as long as they did.

Now the only question is how many of those coaches get recycled in a new city with a new team, in contrast to totally new faces appearing as replacements.

Jim Schwartz needs to be next.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
