Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

I think it's interesting seeing what's happened the last couple weeks with the refereeing, how good the experienced referees really are.

I'm not exactly a shining example of good sportsmanship in that regard either, but maybe it'll lead to a little more patience/tolerance for honest mistakes in the future when/if the old refs come back.

During the Sunday night game, the commentators indicated that the league and the refs were still far apart on some aspects.

The only other thing I've heard about is that letter the league sent to the owners, coaches and players telling them to respect the game and lay off the scrub refs. How dare the people on the field disrespect the game by questioning the replacement refs! I can't believe the NFL could issue such an edict with a straight face.
Well, there was the 15 yard penalty on John Harbaugh for trying to give the refs a hard time (he claimed he was just trying to get their attention to call a timeout). Either way, things are bad right now.

Unthinkable that Houston is the favorite to get the #1 seed in the AFC right now. And that Arizona is battling Atlanta for the other one...
I wouldn't put to much stock in anything right now, we're only three weeks into the season. I'm a Texan fan myself, and I don't buy the hype. It's nice the Texans are now a respectable team and all, but there's still a LOT of football to be played. And there's no way Arizona stays on top for to long, and likewise the Saints will come alive start beating people up very soon.

No way AZ stays on top for long? Their next three games: home against the Dolphins, at St. Louis, and home against Minnesota. Then it gets tougher, but they seem like a decent team from what I've seen of them this year.

The Saints are kind of a rudderless mess. A trip to GB is up for them next, and I think that Saints defense is going to be just what the doctor ordered for our sputtering offense if we still don't quite have it together against Seattle tonight.

It's pretty good.

I imagine Bill Belichick will be hearing from the league offices this week....

Yeah, it's just a bonus that it happens to be on topic to this thread (the plot revolves around a professional football game in Baltimore). If I recall, the book featured a Super Bowl in Denver.

Yes, the league is playing a dangerous game here, and they are demanding that the coaches and players participate in that "game" (against the refs union) by not putting added pressure on the owners by complaing about and showing up the replacements.

The Raiders' Darrius Heyward-Bey took a helmet to helmet shot in the end zone Sunday that left him unconscious. Nothing was called. Now, even there had been a flag thrown it obviously would not have helped Heyward-Bey, but it might have helped some future defenseless player going up for a catch.

Other DB's watching this play might say to themselves, "hey, they aren't calling that, huh". Next game, a DB decides to see it they're calling it and takes a shot at a receiver going up for a ball. A flag is thrown, but too late. The another receiver is laid out.

Goodell loves to get on guys about "hurting" the league by doing things like going to strip clubs. But apparentely, "hurting" the league by deliberatly hiring barely competent officials doesn't count. Such hypocracy.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Oh yeah, and the Raiders get their first win of the season, a sweet little upset of the Steelers in the Black Hole. Up to this game, the only offensive player who has looked consistelntly good this season, was Carson Palmer, a surprise considering how he looked during the exhibition season.

The rest of the offensive team joined the party Sunday -- and not a moment to soon.

Eh it just sucks to see your team thoroughly out play the other team in almost all aspects of the game and still lose cause the refs are awful.

I'm sure its not as rough as the day after the AFC championship game though.

Oh, c'mon, now, I just signed an offer sheet to relocate across the country and work there. At least give me a few months to move out there and realize that I hate it.

The replacement refs just stole that game from my Packers.
