    I will not watch again till the real refs get back..At times I felt embarrassed for the replacements…Sad day for the game I love…

      Seriously again a person complaining about the refs.  Nothing to with the refs its patriots fault.  They loss, get used to it, there season will end 11-5  By the way what type of coach (except the patriots) pushes a ref.

      • The refs were horrible in every game I watched yesterday it’s a disgrace.

          I watched three, like i said its the not the refs, they did not like that last call, the last throw of the game, as always the patriots wine and you got a coach pushing a ref, if i was the owner i would fire him for that, poor sportsmanship

            it’s not the refs?  have you ever actually watched a football game or any sport for that matter?  sure calls are missed in every game regardless if it’s replacement refs or the professional’s but what the players and coaches look for the most is consistency.  right now there is none and it wasn’t just last night.  the game last monday night was just as bad and other games I watched over the weekend left me shaking my head.  i’ve watched the NFL since childhood, but am done until they get the real officials back.  While I’m just a single person and the NFL isn’t going to miss me, the NFL will not be on in my house until this matter is resolved.

            The replacement refs are horrible.  It is not their fault though…they were thrust into a bad situation with minimal training and zero experience.  That being said, they DID NOT cost the Patriots the game last night.  The Pats had the ball and the lead with around two minutes to go in the game.  Because the offense failed to move the ball enough to gain the final first down that would have sealed the game they lost.

            No they are quite a few teams i do not like, patriots is just one of them.  I hate a team of grown up men that cry when they lose.  Alot of people were blaming it on the refs last night, facebook, everywhere i saw it.  Pats lost because of the two minutes

            J I agree that the refs didn’t cost the Pats the game last night. They had a chance to finish it off and failed. I’m not basing the officiating on a single game but all the games I’ve watched in the past three weekends, which has been every one of them. It’s not the news officials fault…for the most part but if the owners refuse to produce the best product possible I’m going to find other things to do with my Sunday afternoons. I like to watch good, entertaining, competitive games. While many of the games are competitive (3ot games yesterday alone) they’re not entertaining with all the stopages and they haven’t been that good on the eyes with all the issues.

        One of my all time favorite NFL memories was watching Bill Cower running over to a ref at half time and shoving one of those faxed pictures they have during the game into the front pocket of the ref’s shirt.  The ref had called 12 men on the field on the play just before the half and it was very obvious he was wrong and there were only 11.  So Bill Cower is the answer to your question…and I am sure there are more examples.  You just love to demonize the Patriots at every opportunity.

        The players are getting what they deserve for not standing with the refs union.

        There was one call I will agree the Pats did not deserve on the holding near the end, other then that, majority was their fault. The teams are trying anything to take advantage of what they think of as “Rookies” when they have been calling some right calls too. Look even though it is not as common, them seasoned refs the fans want back so bad make some pretty bad calls too. You are going to find on here typical Pats fans that can’t accept the fact “their team” is actually able to loose.

          Yea i know i went through this with the superbowl last year, quite a few commenters blamed the loss on the ref.  Pats fan just can not get over that there team is not good as it used to be, brady is getting older, yea he can run fast but he is not that good anymore.

          • Anonymous

            Seriously?  Brady has NEVER been able to run fast.  Also, I am a huge Pats fan and will never blame the outcome of a game on the officials.  Not this past Super Bowl and not the game on Sunday night.

      • What game were you watching? The Pats were clearly the better team and the refs made some bad calls…the interference prior to the field goal was bush league, IMO. You’ll eat your words when the Pats are hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in February.

    The FG was wide to the right. The 4th and a yard did not need a measurement thus giving the Harbaugh team enouhg time upstairs to review the play and throw the challenge flag. The pass interference that lead to the first score for the Raven was not correct.  The personal foul on Harbaugh was bogus. This was worse than pro wrestling was years ago…But again the F in the NFL stands for Fixed.
