Default I guess the refs need pre-season too.

I don't like to scapegoat, but these officials are awful.

Yeah, they're leaning a bit towards the home team... but our guys really aren't helping ourselves too much either.

Illegal use of hands.

Receivers can not be touched at all after 5 yards.

What happens when the receiver runs into the defender to draw a penalty?This is a BS rule. I would have my receivers run straight at the defenders, forcing them to touch them and move the ball 5 yards a play down the field.

Ticky tack ticky tack both ways.

They better be consistent throughout the year or there will be loads of complaining.The ref crew tonight isn't popular with a lot of teams.

One of the talking heads on ESPN was saying earlier this week that there will be a fan revolt several weeks into the season if they keep calling this rule like this. The delays in the action (especially for TV viewers) will be ridiculous.

It's a horrible rule... this is football not patty cake.
Last year, during the playoffs, they allow the defenders to absolutely mug the receivers... so to fix it they go to the complete other extreme and allow zero contact? Genius!

how do you figure I balme the refs for the score? I blame them for blowing the facemask on Gaff that put us in 4th and 1 and the poor spot they gave Thomas that killed a 4th and 5. That killed 2 drives, not to mention that over spot that Rothlesbet got. I would have like to seen our O get a few more chances. I don't care that we lost, I do care that we got run out of the building. The ilegal hands was a little excessive too, IMO.

The refs have been awful so far this preseason for the majority.
