I hope you follow the link and read it if you haven't seen it already. It's about the ridiculous state of the non-calls by NFL Refs and how it's designed to assist the offense. It really bears on many, many things we discuss here pertaining to how the game has changed and cross-generational comparisons of players.

In a nutshell it isn't your father's NFL. Please comment if you will.

The officiating was a travesty today,” Garrett said during his post-game press conference. “It was honestly awful. And the fact that they’re letting them get away with hands to the face, holding, false starting — I know they called a couple, but damn, they could have called it all game. And [there was] the one that cost us down on the 2-yard line.

I mean, respect to those guys, it’s a hard job, but hell, we have a hard job as well. You can’t make it harder by throwing holding and hands to the face out the rulebook. And like I said, I got a lot of respect for those guys, but we get scrutinized for the plays that we don’t make. So someone has to hold them accountable for the plays or the calls they don’t make. And they need to be under the same kind of microscope as we are every single play.

    Reid and Mahomes fined for “undisclosed amount “
    WTF? You wear the wrong socks and the NFL announces the fine.
    $5000.00 each to the nfl referees retirement fund?

    It doesnt seem like too long ago that people were complaining that too many penalties were being called. Now it's not enough?

    "Which will only make some on the outside wonder whether the fix is in."

    I wonder what the fine would be if a coach or player uttered that? 😲

    Probably a suspension. Gambling and game fixing is the one thing they dont mess around with or tolerate at all

    Selective enforcement of the rules/law. One sees it in many aspects of everyday life.
