First, and foremost, of course I will start this off with my beloved Eagles. From a completely non-biased standpoint, I have to say that yesterday's game against the Ravens was probably, by far, the best live game I have ever seen. Beerham and I have gone to some of the BEST away games together, and to be at one at home, and have an outcome like this, was amazing. (Yes, we went together... and it was a blast. We had a great fucking time.)
Now... I know this has been the talk of the NFL since preseason started, but GOD DAMNIT THESE FUCKING REFS. I can't take it anymore! I reached my boiling point yesterday. First of, as an Eagles fan, of course I will take that shitty call against the Ravens in the end zone, which should have been a touchdown, but due to the penalty, resulted in another down. You can't fucking do that! You can't call a solid call in a clear grey area (which wasn't even that grey, there was really no hold) to cost a team the game in a shootout! Again, I am happy that it happened. But it was unfair.
Where I reached my boiling point... the Eagles' last drive that ended in Mike Vick's rushing TD. Are they fucking serious? That fumble call. That is where I nearly lost my shit. I am sitting in the fucking club level, which is a level above lower level, and I can clearly see an arm go forward. You are on the FUCKING FIELD, and you rule that a FUMBLE?! I understand some things are better seen from above, but why is there no ref standing directly in view of the QB?! It's our last attempt to score a touchdown... our last attempt at winning this game, and you don't think crazy shit might go down right where the fucking QB is?! I am not even going to go into the position of the ball bullshit, because that is just embarrassing...
Anyway... what do you guys think of this year so far? Do you feel these refs are potentially turning games?
Also, what do you guys think about TB charging the Giants while they were taking a knee? I mean, I understand anything can happen, but with 5 seconds left in the game, that's nothing short of a dick move in my opinion, no?
