Default Replacement refs and the Texans....

One thing I have noticed about these refs and knowing how terrible they are. Our team need to understand when it comes to game time, do not put the game into the refs hands. If we win, win with at least 2 scores because these refs will screw somebody next and I hate for it to be us....

We are not going to win by two or more scores every game. They just need to play the best they can and not think about the refs.

Default Re: Replacement refs and the Texans....

What worries me most about the clueless replacement refs is the calls the DON'T make. Players are going to get hurt if these refs don't make the calls right.

Now I'm not saying the regular refs are always right, because we know that's not the case. But the regular refs don't let the games get out of hand or allow the types of things to go on we've seen so far this season.

I wish the NFL would settle this crap soon.

Eh...We've been getting screwed by the refs for years. To me, there's no difference. All the teams complaining are the ones that got nursed by the refs and NFL and of course the Harbaugh brothers.

Confirmation bias. The product on the field is significantly worse with the replacement refs. The games are taking longer, it resembles amateur hour when they are telling which team got what penalty and how it will be enforced, timeouts and challenges have been a huge issue, and all sorts of weird crap is going on in way more games than what used to happen with the guys who had been reffing for a decade or two.

Im not sure that the Texans have been getting screwed at any higher rate than the rest of the nfl maybe thats fan biased coming out in post but Im pretty sure fans tend to think their team gets the worst of it all.

If this lockout drags on any longer, it's only a matter of time until a player gets seriously injured due to the replacement ref's incompetence. Goodell should shut his trap about player safety when it's obvious he's doesn't give a crap about it.

Not worried.

Our team is built to avoid these situations. So far, they've been getting out to fast starts and stonewalling the other team for most of the game.

These refs are pandering to the crowds, probably subconsciously, and it will likely favor us @ home. Somebody could get hurt, though.

There was a good article about home field bias in sports about a year or two ago in either ESPN or Sports Illustrated and how it exists. If regular refs are influenced by it, I'm guessing it's 10X worse with the replacement refs. I'll try to find it during my lunch break.

In TexanChicks latest blog, there is a link to another article stating that, yes, it has gotten emphatically worse with the replacement refs and home teams are winning a very high percentage of games right now. I posted the link in one of the threads yesterday--don't remember which one; maybe the main one complaining about the refts.

Kubiak needs to tell players quit going off side; blocking in the back and grabbing or pushing a WR. I am much more concerned about our stupid penalties than the opponents. I understand new guys on Oline but there would not have been a Schaub beat down if the defensive players had been blocked. Real refs or "I can't believe it's not butter", flags were thrown.

They pander to the players as well, and I noticed that our players didn't take advantage of it in the Denver game.

The refs have been visibly moved when players make a scene. There were several times in the Denver game when our receivers felt they were interfered with, would throw their hands up after the play, but then let it go. They could have worked the refs and there was a good chance the refs would have thrown a flag in response.

I know it's probably the "wrong" thing to do, but they should have done it, nonetheless.

Default Re: Replacement refs and the Texans....

After watching 3 weeks of the refs just screw up the game, I am not nearly as excited as I normally would be about Texans football or the NFL in general. Does anyone else feel this way? I'll still watch the game, but it'll become harder and harder to root with the same passion as before until this situation is resolved.

No. I'll be rooting with the same passion and enthusiasm as with the real refs.
