Playoff officiating

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

Playoff officiating

Postby SkinsJock » Sun Jan 05, 2014 5:21 pm

watching the 49ers at Packers - these officials are letting a lot go and not making calls they should make

The NFL should kick these bad NFL officials out after this season
It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive in the near future, the problems here are complex - we'll win some games but it will take years to be good again

I actually don't mind letting a lot go, AS LONG AS it's consistent.

That's a fair comment - for the most part I'd agree - it's fun to 'let the players play' ...

the thing is that the 'rules' are in place and while nit-picking stoppages and penalties are annoying there are some significant penalties that are not being called because the refs are not good enough not because they have judged the 'infraction' to be 'fair' to both sides

there are a number of very good officials but there is not enough accountability My 2 cents

It's always been the case that they don't call as many fouls in the playoffs. Good teams know this going in, and will take advantage.

I am all in favor of them letting things go ...

I also wish the NFL would 'punish' those refs that are not calling blatant fouls by taking them out of the playoff roster

we have a number of good refs and we have a few bad ones - Ed H needs to go
