I agree completely. There are numerous examples in NFL history where human error led to blown calls that ultimately affected games. There is no doubt that officials are not perfect, and that human element can impact games.

But, that's a far cry from those asserting a back room cabal of NFL commish, league execs, and numerous referees conspiring to fulfill an agenda that panders to network ratings. The NFL is a cash cow already, so risking all of that continuous success by allowing some nefarious plan seems far fetched and ludicrous. Eventually, game film would prove a trend and coaches, GMs, and owners would be sure to make a big deal out of it. No way are any of these cats (coaches, GMs, owners) in on any kind of alleged conspiracy. It just does not make any logical sense at all.
