    Even thought I don't think that Hochuli was "on the take" he should acknowledge publicly his HUGE mistake and I want to see the NFL publicly reprimend him, NO superbowl for him :tdown:

    Petition for the immediate removal of Ed Hochuli and the officiating crew

    let's not get carried away here, it was a BAD call for sure, but he's not being removed from anything, he'll probably own up to it, apologize but that's it

    Wow, such a way to treat one of your own fellow fans. You seem to have a problem with people who come on here wanting to support our team. Doesn't make much sense, if you ask me. I came on here looking to vent like a lot of others because, I too, am uspet about the game. I am a Charger fan and a native San Diegan.

    Welcome to the forum. Please understand that some Denver Trolls have passed this way and people are on edge because of the ugly wins.

    If you are a Charger fan, post away, the truth will out!:tup:

    I know he wont be removed. I signed it anayways.

    I would just like for the referees to be held accountable for making crap calls like that.

    The petition we really need is to investigate the Donks like they did the Patsies.

    It is not going to happen. Imagine if the NFL let fans demand the removal of refs. By the third game there would be none.

    We got screwd and tatooed. Time to move on.

    That I get, it's kinda fishy that the replay equipment didn't work, kinda like the helmet communication equipment doesn't work at times in Foxboro :icon_shrug:

    ed hochuli

    watching the replay on ESPN, I noticed that the ref didn't start waving his arms to signal "incomplete" until the Charger player was almost ready to recover the ball. It seemed like once he saw what was going to happen, (the ball being recovered by a Charger), that's when ol' Ed started waving his arms.

    I don't care what that tool says, he's too good of a ref to blow a whistle that fast on an obvious fumble. He had to have a motive. Sorry, I know it sounds sour grapes, but this was just too obvious. An official of his stature doesn't miss those calls. Unless he's trying to....

    Signed it. Probably won't lead to anything, but I feel just a little bit better.

    The replay of the bailey interception was not Hochulis fault. If it doesnt work, it doesnt work. There's nothing he can do about it.

    He missed a call that would have sealed the game for us.

    The facts are that Crow got his *** handed to him by Marshall and Denver beat us with the SAME FREAKIN PLAY TWICE!

    It's time for the Cro Mancrush to end.

    It wasn't even close to being an interception, replay be damned. It shouldn't have even been questioned.

    I signed it too just because it made me sick. What a great game otherwise with the Charger's making a great come back in the second half. They won in my mind but that won't show in the standings. Time to go for it next week.

    Petition for the immediate removal of Ed Hochuli and the officiating crew

    “I’ve been cheated, been mistreated. When will I be loved?” – Linda Ronstadt

    I signed it as well, I know it won’t amount to anything but it did make me feel a little better just to speak out against this B.S.!

    I almost feel sorry for the Jets, because they're going to be made to pay for everything that has happened to us in the past two weeks, as long as fat Teddy can find a way to get some consistent pressure on Brett Favre - that would be a refreshing surprise because for us to let opposing QBs drop back to pass 91 times over the past two games and only get 1 sack out of it is a subtle indication that whatever we're doing right now just isn't working! :no:

    Petition for the immediate removal of Ed Hochuli and the officiating crew

    Yes, the officiating crew drove the final stake in our hearts yesterday. Yes, they blew 2 calls, one of which could not be reviewed due to faulty equipment (but would have surely been overturned in our favor), the other which was a mistake of game-costing proportion. Will I sign the petition? No - it serves no purpose other than to cast our fan base as a bunch of whiners.

    That's right, I said whiners. Football is a game of funny bounces. One of those bounces is the sometimes subjective & always human aspect of refereeing. Did Hochuli & Co. screw the pooch yesterday? You betcha. And they'll be hearing about it from all angles this week. But it won't change a thing. The refs won't be gone, the final score will still leave us on the short end.

    Bottom line is this, folks, whether you like the taste of it or not. We may have lost on 2 last-second plays, but the Donk offense, particularly Cutler & Marshall, shoved us around all day. Our offense played an admirable game. Our defense, for the most part, sucked *** again.

    So blame the refs all that you want. If signing the petition makes you feel better & relieves your angst, go for it. Just remember this - if we had played a good game on both sides of the ball, the blown calls would not have cost us this game.
