    NFL officials to have conference call

    It appears that the NFL has had enough with a strain of controversial on-field officiating calls.

    FOXSports.com has learned that the league is having a conference call Friday for every member of every officiating team. The purpose of the call is twofold, according to one officiating source to serve as pep talk, but also to clean up mistakes by the officials....

    Not sure any good will come of this but as the officials have been horrible this year, it probably couldn't do any harm.

    The ones from the Vikes/Pack game should be smacked upside the head at this conference.

    Only in the NFL can a referee fuck up a call & if coach or player calls him on it publicly, the ref making the mistake has nothing happen to him, while the coach/player gets a hefty fine.

    Only in the NFL can a referee fuck up a judgement call on a player that made a good hit & because of his fuck up, the player that made the clean hit gets nailed for a $75,000 fine, while the ref doesn't get held accountable at all.

    'Bout time they start taking some responsibility. The NFL officiating is a joke!

    Plural. WTF, Does GB have a contract where the league needs to give them "X" number of bogus calls every game or something? My guess is they will look at the tape, admit that they fucked up and then fine a vikings player for it.

    I know this matters not a jot now but it looked like Peterson was short when scoring against the Patriots (who lost the challenge) on Sunday. Maybe these things do even themselves out over the course of the season.
