Actually, if you have watched a bunch of games over the course of the short season so far, you might not have been surprised at all.
There were defensive pass interference calls when the defender didn't even touch the receiver, there were others when the ball wasn't even remotely catchable, there were obvious cases of intentional grounding completely ignored. There were flags so late that you weren't sure which play they were on, there were missed TD calls that later got rectified by replay review, and there were non-TDs that were originally called TDs.
Basically, this game was about as bad as it could possibly get.
Shockingly, that's not even the most ridiculous thing about the replacement referees.
On the same day that a ref was pulled from a Saints game after being revealed to be a Saints fan, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy says that a referee told him that he needed McCoy for his fantasy team.
McCoy also said that the refs appeared starstruck, and even afraid of guys like Ray Lewis, and that influenced their calls.
Keep in mind, the Eagles WON that game against the Ravens. So this isn't a case of sour grapes from a player after a tough loss.
There's nothing wrong with referees playing fantasy football, or being NFL fans. In fact, I would assume that most referees, original and replacement, are guys who grew up loving the NFL. You don't get that involved without some sort of passion for the game.
The thing is, you still need to be a professional, and these refs are demonstrating a complete inability to pull that off. They're also showing a complete inability to simply do their job.
Time to stop messing around, NFL. Get us the real refs back. I'd much rather complain about them than these clowns.
