What it wants and what they do are two different issues.

I don't think the NFL is manipulating games for TV ratings.

I think stars do get some special treatment.

I think some crews, Ed Hochuli's in particular and I have said this since before the Texans existed, tend to "when in doubt call it for the favored team."

Even on those issues I don't think the refs ever get together and decide to call it that way.
