My issue is that there seems to be no repercussions for missing calls or making bad calls that have major affects on the game. A ref can completely blow a call then the next t week they trot on the field to call another game. No fine, no 15 yard penalty, nothing.
The NFL doesn't give much of a s**t about officiating. Remember this is the league that trotted out amateurs to ref games because they were being cheap. We didnt lose because of the refs, but there were 4 very bad calls in the game 2 of which eventually led to 10 Seattle points. Another bad call affected our ability to get into FG range before halftime. We still had the chance to win, but the calls that were missed weren't difficult and pretty routine. But these guys still get paid and still ref games and this was supposed to be an 'all star" crew. There is no penalty for being a s**tty ref. At worst you lose your part time job but I dunno even how much that happens.
