    For a team it's weak and takes away from what really needs to be addressed.
    As a football coach I do not like bad calls, but they are going to happen.
    Get a little pissed and make an adjustment.

    First off, a team needs to take care of business so that if they get a bad call it's not going to be a game changing call.
    Like the 4th and 1.


    A lot of our penalties are fricken stupid ones that should not even happen if the team were properly coached and disciplined.
    Totally agree with you.
    That's why I thought that call was more the coach's fault.
    He wasted 2 timeouts and to me he didnt even challenge the right part of the play.

    Yeah but your missing something, some of those calls are completly phantom. I have a phylosphy as a coach and player to move on mentaly regardless of any call, nobody gets anywhere argueing with the ref on the field or on the court.

    But as a fan I think we have done enough bashing of our players and coaches in every facet to finally blame someone else for something, I'm glad this thread was created and its not like its untrue, its flat out rediculous period.

    I understand what your saying but at the same time, calls that bad take away momentum especially when you are barely gaining momentum for the first time in the game, as far as him challenging the play I was under the impression when you challenge a play, you challenge the entire play. Unless they changed a rule this year im pretty positive its still the same way

    I don't really agree with what your saying, i understand what your saying personally i think refs should be fined for each

    They wouldn't let him because of "foward momentum", that dictates the end of a play.

    Thats the way it needs to be, that ref needs to get under the hood and do whatever it takes to make it right period. He needs to evaluate the whole situation.

    Let me repeat this, you should not have your team in a position that if you do get a bad call it is going to aid in you losing the game.
    I would be willing to bet this is a coaches mentality.
    This is mine (and my staffs) as well as others that I have talked with.

    You cannot fine a ref for bad calls, its going to happen.
    Do you expect a human to be perfect?
    We have the luxury of watching it on TV from different angles and broadcasters helping us out.
    They have plenty on their hands and may have seen it from a different angle.

    Come on, get the lead and hold the lead.

    The same exact kind of stop that won the game for the Chicago Bears Vs the Philedelphia Eagles on SNF.

    How many times can a ref be expected to get under the hood in a game?
    Do you want the game over reffed?

    Yes, we have had some iffy calls this year.
    But what if we get lucky and they go our way.
    Do you really want the call reversed?
    Hell no.

    They do have a camera on the goal line from the side.
