    Not sure if that would help or not BLV, but in their defense, I believe alot of the bad has to do with the fact that the game is so fast these days and the players on the line are so dam big, sometimes they just don't see what is there to be seen.
    Bad angles can make a world of difference in how things look also.
    I believe the refs are trying their best and are honest and try not to be biased for one team or another.
    Now QB's and protecting them, thats a whole other story and ball game, one I believe should have never came to be, withing reason that is.
    Some QB's are protected more than others, just because of who they are.
    But back to the refs.
    They have a hard job and a job that is mostly based on judgement and sight.
    Again, I think they do their best most the time, but sometimes that isn't enough.
    Overall, I think they do a decent job, and I don't ever see them being perfect.







    Personaly I like to see the game flow at a good clip and to many calls can cramp that easily.
    But today, there wasn't that many calls, but easily could have been more than there was.
    Also, look at the start of the game.
    That was clearly a fumble and should have been a Viking recovery with TD at the end.
    Totaly blown call on that play, period.


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    No kidding.
    I remember getting a gift from the refs when they called PI on Charles Woodson after he intercepted Favre in the first game.

    Since the game is so fast, should guys in their mid 50's and 60's
    be doing the job? Shouldnt someone with younger eyes be in there?

    *all current refs are at the bottom of the page

    I do agree that they should look at going to full time refs.

    Some of the call the refs have made this year make my head spin. The no call on BB's TD for a terrible facemask, the late hit call on rogers this week amoung a few other. And I wont go into last week. Isnt there some type of panel that watches consistantly bad calls?
    Yes, there is.

    The NFL grades each officiating crew on each game.
    They don't publicly reveal the grades, but from all accounts, they are harder on the refs than any fan is.
    It is, after all, a multi billlion dolalr business, and bad officiating makes for bad PR.

    The grades that each official gets determines two things:
    1) Whether or not they officiate the playoffs (a big $$ bonus, plus eligibility to officiate the superbowl)
    2) Whether or not they are employed the following season.

    And bad calls happen to every team.
    You just remember them more when they go against you...

    To answer your question simply, no. The refs do not hate the Vikings.
    Yes they do.
    Is this just opinion or do you have facts to back this up?

    I still marvel that people believe that NFL refs would go out of thier way to carry out a vendetta against a team and to call things another way for another team.

    Maybe those people don't watch any other games than Vikings games.

    Seriously, go out on the boards, you will see fans from each and every team pissing and moaning about how the refs are out to get them
    Totally agree. Complaining about the calls that "always" seem to go against your team is silly. I can bad calls that were made for BOTH teams. It happens. It the human element of the game.

    With that said, I seriously doubt an official hates a team.
