First off, i've been a lurker on this website since the 97 season i believe, i check the site everyday and yet never made a account to post along with you guys, its odd cause i know the majority of you on here personality wise and how certain few of you tend to think its a lil stalker'ish? lol Don't get me wrong it isn't intentional but im on this site so much and have read so many threads its as if i was posting on the site. Now back on the reason i made this account, have you guys not missed how many games the refs have destroyed for us?
Last week, on 4th and 1? obviously didnt get the first down, and he actually fumbled the ball on the play and that was obvious and reguardless if they recovered it was still before the first down, you take away that bad call and thats -7 points. We score on the very next drive and we would have taken a 4 point lead. You cant really say what would have happened but we wouldnt have had to force the ball down the field deep down in our own endzone. This isnt the only call either, theyre has been atleast 1 horribly bad call in each game this season, another play that killed us was a touch down by chester which was called back due to a so called hold which obviously wasnt a hold.
I swear it seems like no matter what we do, the refs get involved in the game. No one notices except me and my father who have watched every vikings game together for the past 20 years. I seriously wanna complain to the nfl to check the footage, it almost seems like a ref conspiracy against the vikes since moss squirted em with a water bottle ha, it sounds a little out theyre but i really feel as though we get jipped in ever game.
We shouldnt put ourselves in a position to have 1 play cost us a game, but at the same time a ref is payed to make the right call, and when you have instant replay you should be able to make the right call, its always either inconclusive for us or they just flat out miss the call completely, do we ever win a challenge?
on another note, who the heck takes a time out to think about challenging a play, wtf was that, are you serious its like watchin a 12 year old coach a team. zigi is gonna pull the plug on this hc within this next season unless he pulls a tice and ends up making us a wildcard team where he can barely hold onto his job and do the same exact thing next year.
im kinda rambling so dont judge my grammar haha i know its lookin a bit horrid like a 5 year old wrote this post, im just a grumpy guy when it comes to having a bad season year in and year out.
id like to hear your opinions on this.
