    How many bad calls did we have on Sunday? When is the NFL going to employ full time refs instead of the part time, sorry a**, attorney's! How in the hell can we get called for face mask when Liuget only touched A. Smith's shoulder?!?! We need to be able to challenge bad calls with fake rubber dog sh**!

    Seemed like it evened out in end. There were bad calls against them too. The striped shirts are human. Maybe the game is so fast now that video surveillance would be more accurate. It would certainly remove some of the character from the sport. I am sure MLB could have instituted an electronic home plate umpire years ago.

    The phantom face mask was brutal, but overall, bad calls on both sides.

    Yeah the defensive PI penalty against the Chiefs in the 4th was pretty brutal for them.

    It's a two-way street... welcome to the wonderful world of collective bargaining. Fans complaining about the quality of refereeing right now need look no further for blame than the fans who made such a big stink that the replacement refs were SO TERRIBLE that they were "ruining football" and the "real refs" had to be brought back "immediately." Ironically, many of these people are one in the same. We the fans cut the legs out from under the league and gave all the leverage to the Referees Union after the Fail Mary incident and the league had no position to bargain from to get the concessions necessary to actually hold officials accountable. Not saying the league doesn't bear some responsibility in the matter, but they can't opt out of a CBA barely a year into it and not expect to have litigation filed against them for failing to bargain in good faith. There are lots of people to blame, but the fans are just as culpable as anybody.
