Why are NFL refs this bad?

That doesn't make any sense. The NFLPA did not institute nor advocate these rule changes.

Safety in the job doesn't incentivize performance.

You know, I was more pissed off at the officials after last night than I have been after my own team’s been hosed. That was the most abominable performance by the refs I can remember in a long time. Also up there is yesterday’s Cowboys Jets game with those 5 straight flags to keep the Cowboys alive when they were all but dead and buried  

The lions got straight up robbed last night. 

It’s one of 2 things:

1. There’s league or outside influence on the outcome of games - either to do with maximizing drama for TV ratings or due to the amount of sports betting money at stake

2. The officials are downright incompetent and prone to blowing calls  

I don’t know if either one is supposed to make me feel any better watching this game.  Either way, I continue to be a sucker for tuning in on Sundays.

I wasn't able to watch the game but I saw the 2 illegal use of hands calls that were both on #90 Flowers. Huge phantom calls in crucial moments of the game lol.

My hatred for the NFL refs has already reached its peak since way last season. At this point I'm at acceptance of what the refs are now, which is sad, because I hate them so Fing much and I love football. They are so bad this year, good god.

I don't believe that the game is rigged. I think the rules that the league created are just horrible and the terrible inept 60+ year old men in zebra stripes don't know how to interpret them in real time. That being said, even if the rules were clear and obvious about what to call, these idiots still wouldn't be able to call a game correctly.

Its going to be very interesting to see how they fair once playoffs come around. (We all know what happened last year) The entire nation will have their eyes on these games, and we all know they are going to colossally F some of these games up.  

Also, in the Cowboys Jets game, they called 6 penalties in a row on that final Cowboys drive...6, and most of them were obvious non calls because it was the final 2 mins of the game.

If they do I hope it's against the Saints so we get to hear their fans whine all off season.

Its simple really... 

 

No accountability 

Pretty much. It must be nice having no repercussions for blatantly Fing up while doing your job. Not to mention the ref's F ups have direct repercussions on other peoples jobs and money that is invested through sportsbook gambling.

Even as a huge football fan that is a huge Eagles fan , I get pissed even when the Giants, Cowboys or Redskins get hosed on a call. I feel like the fact that the refs can continuously get away with blowing calls makes them think that they have more of a right to be the centerpiece of each game on Sunday. Its a fixable problem that the NFL is afraid to touch because they keep making things worse
