    I am just wondering what calls would he bitch about? They are all pretty legitimate calls.
    All 3 calls were warranted.
    You can't tackle a guy that's going to make a tackle.
    You can't hold a guy on his pattern.
    You also can't grab a guy's face mask when making a tackle.
    These were all within the rule book.
    Not sure where his gripe is other than the fact they lost.

    I do understand his frustration.
    I watched the game and saw a few times he was held without a call.
    We as Viking fans see that all the time with Allen.
    Now throw in the non-call on Berrian in the Eagles game.
    Then you have a gripe.

    Re: Freeney whining about officiating.

    I still don't think it comes down to the refs......

    Did the ref throw the INT?
    Did the refs call the screen when we had the blitz on?

    Sure it hurts to see a call not go your way, but ultimately one can go back and see lots of plays that the team inflicts on itself which causes the game to go the other way.

    I wasn't trying to say the ref lost the game for us.
    I was just pointing out the fact we didn't get a call that should have been and this guy is complaining about right calls.

    As with all sports sometimes you have to play better then the officials. You would think as professionals they would know this and just suck it up.
