    This guy is the definition of no class. Putting his hands on the ref after the game. I can't stand him.

    To be honest he only tried to stop him, not like he shoved him down on the ground, the officials are HORRIBLE.

    It doesn't matter. You don't do that. Kubiak would never do that. And they got the call right anyways.

    He tried to stop the ref by grabbing on to his arm.

    Yeah... he should have kicked him to the moon instead! I saw it as the ref being classless here as opposed to Belichick. I guess your mileage may vary.

    I don't know. Maybe it's no big deal. But I was always taught to respect the officials when I played any kind of sport. You can voice your displeasure but putting your hands on them is crossing the line in my book. Different strokes for different folks.

    We decided in the control room to keep a tally on how many calls we felt were made that better refs wouldn't have screwed up on.

    We counted 17. 17 plays where it was clear the inferior refs either blew a call or missed a call. The integrity of the game is being messed with now and for people like Belichick that spend 100 hrs in the film room and dedicate their lives to this, I'd be just as pissed too.

    The NFL and refs need to sit down, get this down and do it NOW. Someone is either going to get paralyzed or killed.

    Forget the fact that some team is facing a real possibility of getting screwed out of a legit win that ends up costing them their season, and it will all have hinged on the refs, and this time it won't be a bull**** excuse.

    Did you catch Steve Young's take on the ref's last week? He sums it up perfectly. The best quote is people in the league "don't feel that the officials are on field personnel, they feel like it's a commodity". The NFL replacement refs can continue to blow calls but the NFL knows that people will continue to go to watch the games regardless of the officials. They're basically trying to break the referee union, to show them up because Goodell and Co. are the big, bad NFL while the ref's are just an insignificant part of the entire process. I would not be surprised if the lockout lasts throughout the entire season and playoffs no matter how much people complain.

    Here's the link to Steve Young talking about it

    I'm not sure here. I think the integrity of the game has been damaged more by the reaction of the players and coaches towards the 'replacements' opposed to the 'replacements' being in the league.

    Belichick was out of order - you never put your hands on an official - regardless of who it is.

    The refs are who the refs are. Screaming and intimidating isn't going to make a non-professional NFL official, an NFL official.

    He won't be around in Boston much longer if NE keeps losing games.

    What? New England made the Super Bowl last year. He hasn't had a losing season since 2000. I think Belichick's job is safe.

    1. The reffing is horrible. No debate about it.

    2. Steve Young's rant was spot on.


    The Goodell run NFL is going to come down hard of Bellichick, I wouldn't be surprised to see a suspension, at the very least a stiff fine. Goodell doesn't like to let anyone show him up, and that is how he will view it after sending around the "play nice with others" memo last week.

    I would encourage all of you guys to sign up for TASO (Texas Association of Sports Officials) this season. It's late and the season's already started, but I can assure you that they're short-handed and would be more than willing to have you.

    Find out what it's like for yourselves. And once you're trying to play catch-up in a 7th grade B-game...let me know how easy and obvious the plays are that you missed.

    Btw...
    These refs didn't ask for this. They're doing the very best job that they can, to have been dropped in the mix. I can't imagine the pace of an NFL game. College and High School can't hold a candle to it. Not to mention the difference in rule enforcement in the pros as opposed to college.

    Can they turn the NFL down?

    Nobody's denying that. But that's separate from saying they are doing a terrible job.

    My 3-year-old tries her best to draw Mickey Mouse.

    But it looks like crap.

    Touch a ref and prepare to be fined and /or suspended. The ref's job isn't to discuss the call with a coach after the game is over.

    He'll coach the Pats as long as he wants to, he's pretty well earned that.

    Same for my three yr-old. Of course Daddy's doesn't look much better. :)

    People expect folks to be as good or better at their job as you are at yours. The NFL took shortcuts with these refs and it shows...glaringly.
