How about Cal Lepore while we are at it?

Michael, Cal Lepore hasn’t reffed in several years. You maybe shouldn’t post on this board if you don’t know something as basic as that.

Reply

Michael December 4, 2013 at 1:11 pm

Top Gun, I was being sarcastic in reference to the fact that Lorenzo posted just about every eligible Referee for the BUF@NE game in the hopes of finally getting one right this year. If you do not have a sense of humor maybe you shouldn’t post on this board

Yeah I will do the same. Sorry Top Gun…oops, I mean Lorenzo. TopGun, on the other hand, is legit. And until Mickey bans me (which he won’t, cuz I’m not a troll), I will continue to post on this site.

Mark December 17, 2013 at 12:00 pm

And I would just like to add that I was right, because Nita says Hochuli will be in NE this week. Further proof that Lorenzo is a stupid troll. #troll #getlostlorenzo

Anderson is working San Fran vs Arizona this week.

Reply

Michael December 4, 2013 at 1:49 pm

Depending on how the rest of the season goes that is one of the games that I could see being flexed to SNF (the other possibilities being PHI@DAL or BAL@CIN)

Reply

Mark December 4, 2013 at 2:27 pm

Yeah I agree. But Anderson also has the SNF game for Week 14. I don’t know if that matters with the scheduling, etc.

Reply

Michael December 4, 2013 at 2:48 pm

CAR/NO was flexed in so it is not treated like a SNF game for purposes of scheduling. Under the new system any game in Week 17 is eligible to be flexed so not something they can really plan for far in advance. Looking at the schedule even when the assignments were first made for this season there were certain games like JAX/IND and CLE/PIT that were not realistically going to be flexed so the league may try to make sure that someone who had not been scheduled for SNF before flexing took place are not assigned those games

Reply

John Ross Howell December 20, 2013 at 4:01 pm

don’t green bay or Chicago game be flexed next week

Reply

Michael December 20, 2013 at 5:26 pm

It is definitely possible buy I think some of that will depend on the results this week. If Green Bay loses to Pittsburgh I doubt you see it flexed. If Dallas wins and Philly loses the winner of that match goes to the playoffs and the loser goes home plus it is Dallas/Philly so you know NBC is going to like that even though the NFC East has gotten the Week 17 flex pretty often

Reply

Avi December 26, 2013 at 2:32 am

Actually once Dallas won it didn’t matter what Philly did since the Cowboys won their first meeting, but of course the Eagles blew out Chicago.

Eddie December 26, 2013 at 2:34 am

Yes, Philly beating the bears did matter. If Philly lost to the bears and beats dallas, they would’ve been the 4 seed. Since they beat the bears, if they beat dallas, they will be the 3 seed.

Reply

Avi December 26, 2013 at 10:40 am

Well that’s true-that can be important if the top 2 seeds lose in the divisional playoffs, like 7 years ago when the Chargers and Ravens both lost and so the Colts got to host the Patriots in the AFC Title Game.

As of this post, JAX @ IND and NYJ @ MIA each have the fewest eligible referees (4):

*Eligible under a five-week rule.

Also, with only 4

BAL @ CIN – Boger, Corrente, Green & Vinovich

However, HOU @ TEN only has 3 – Blakeman, McAulay & Steratore

Reply

David December 20, 2013 at 1:02 am

You forgot that Leavy is also eligible for BAL @ CIN, HOU @ TEN and KC @ SD. I doubt that Carey would work KC @ SD, since he’s from San Diego. Certain referees prefer not to officiate games involving teams from their hometown, including Carey-Chargers, Anderson-Texans and I believe Boger-Falcons.

Reply

John 2 December 20, 2013 at 12:46 pm

You are right about Leavy being eligible, except I had him on bye since they are the only crew that has not had a 2nd bye week which is why I did not include that crew.

Reply

Michael December 20, 2013 at 1:00 pm

Walt Coleman’s crew also has had only 1 bye week and I have it from a trusted source that Coleman’s crew will have its 2nd bye week in Week 17

Tuxman22 December 22, 2013 at 6:30 pm

Jeff Tripplettes Umpire Butch Hannah was injured during the Jets-Browns game (he was subbing for Pete Morrelli’s ump who is out). More than likely they wouldn’t have scheduled him to work the Jets game 2 weeks in a row

Reply

Michael December 26, 2013 at 9:55 am

Just because he worked a team previously does not make him ineligible. A crew cannot work a team more than twice during the regular season and if a crew works a team twice it has to be no more frequent than the opposite ends of a 6 week windows. For Week 17 that means officials are only disqualified from teams they have officiated twice during the regular season or from teams they officiated in Weeks 13-16

His SJ, Larry Rose (#128), who also has a Super Bowl to his credit is also retiring

Jim Nantz announced on the Balt-Cin telecast that Scott Green was retiring after this game. Unlike the NHL, don’t retiring NFL officials still get to work the playoffs?

If eligible they will but if they do not rank highly enough they will usually get the Pro Bowl as a going away gift

Sitting in the stadium in New Orleans watching Cheffers and his crew do a terrible job. It’s hard to say who is worse, Cheffers or Steratore. Too bad Scott Green is retiring. He is one of the good ones.

I’ve seen much better crews than Cheffers and company work high school games.

Scott Green is a mediocre ref. Cheffers is no good. and I find it hard to believe Leavy gets a playoff game after the messy San Diego game this past weekend.

I left a prior message that seems to have been removed.

Since Scott Green may be retiring, does this increase his chances of being named Super Bowl referee? Also, Ron Winter has been a referee for many years. Do you folks think he finally deserves to be referee at a Super Bowl?

It does not increase or decrease anything, if he was not worthy of a playoff game they will probably give him pro bowl. But he could get a game. Winter had a decent year, but is one of the more controversial guys in the league.

Ron Winter doesn’t deserve to referee a turkey bowl of over-40s playing half-lit on a frozen high school field, much less a Super Bowl. Are you kidding, or related to him?

No Im not. My theory is that we have 11 playoff games and the pro bowl which means 12 of the 17 guys will get a game. So many other people have made ridiculous mistakes.. Leavy, Tripplette, Blakeman that he may get a playoff game. I dont want him in the super bowl.

Yahoo Sports News reports that the Chargers should have been assessed a 5 yd penalty on KC kicker Succop’s missed FG at the end of the game, and he should have had a chance to re-kick. That would potentially have made a very big difference in the outcome of the game, and the playoff picture. If this is true, Bill Leavy’s crew made a major error.

They did and I doubt they will be getting a playoff game after that

First of all, there was definitely an error there. Leavy’s had a tough year with several major mistakes.

However, for Mike Tomlin to be irate about this is something I’m not so sure about. He is quick to forget his little sideline dalliance in Baltimore. That should have been a penalty as well.
