When Officiating hits all time lows

4 posts in this topic

Of all the serious issues that threaten the fat-cow NFL, the piss-poor officiating is at the top of my list. Always sub-par, the last few seasons have only seen the officiating go from abysmal to abominable. The players are so sick of being jobbed by the inept officials they're accepting the fines for complaining to emphasize just how ridiculously inept the officials are.

Replay has been a failure because the NFL officiating brass have abused the whole purpose of replay. It was implemented so the calls could be more accurate. Instead replay is more or less a rubber stamp of what call was made by the officials on the field. Only when the mistake is so blatantly evident there's no way to avoid over-turning it does a call get changed.

The NFL's perennial policy of providing inept, unprofessional and biased officiating crews and then fining players when they complain about their incompetence is a disgrace to the league. It shows they not only don't give a dam about the quality of the officiating, they will even stoop so low as to fine players to enforce the status quo rather than fixing it.

The NFL keeps these fools because they assist the league in keeping the games in favor of the league's preferred teams.
