Showed some pretty atrocious decision making by the refs such as Lynch being stopped what appears to be more than a full yard away from the marker on 2nd down and yet they spot the ball entirely in front of the marker. All the while Fox's TV crew had changed the scoreboard indicator to 3rd down.
It could be something but it seems like a fan just grasping at straws really.
Maybe not grasping at straws more just pointing out human flaws that happen in pretty much every game they just get magnified in a higher profile game.
Football has been on TV for years...the calling has gotten worse over the years it is visible. Now it is expected..before it was a fluke. I don't know if it is intentional or not...but it certainly has become a bigger problem in today's game than it was 10 years ago.
Also, 10 years ago it was harder for us as fans to pinpoint errors. These days with super slow motion and super HD TV's, its easier to watch a replay and see an error. Fans forget these guys are seeing things in real time and limited angles.
I think they main problem is they keep adding and changing the rules. And the rules are so convoluted and open to interpretation, they are just inconsistent. The same play can be called 3-4 different ways depending on who makes the call and that is very
annoying as fans.
