I’ve been watching NFL games for the past 30 years or so. It’s hard to complain when in that span my team (NY Giants) get to five Superbowls and win four of them. However, as long as I can remember, it’s hard to find a game where officiating was as bad as this past Thursday night football game between the Giants and Eagles where probably two refs had it out for the Giants all night with multiple bad penalties called against the Giants and obvious holds and pass interference penalties not called against the Eagles. It’s not that I think the Giants were far better than the Eagles that night, but these penalties eventually led to the Eagles winning the game and would likely represent a 14 point swing, meaning the Giants would have 26 points and the Eagles 17. These are some of the reasons why fans like me are beginning to think about not watching the games let alone going to games. Fans deserve better than watching refs get paid 4 figure sums for making bad call after bad call, and basically making many games determined by the refs. It’s time the NFL comes clean and admit their were many bad calls made rather than insult us by defending the bad calls. The replays will not change what they already show. The NFL is run by billionaires and mega millionaires and admitting they made a mistake, God forbid many is less likely than being fortunate enough to find a needle in a haystack. I am comple tely disgusted with the NFL including them changing the game of football into a game where players are playing to safely stop the progression of the quarterback at the expense of giving up extra yards and being called on anything that appears more dangerous than a gentle game of two-hand touch.
