|Dr Tarzan| Posted September 12, 2012 Report Share Posted September 12, 2012 Honestly, I don't see a whole hell of a lot difference. I here teams complaining about calls and non-calls, but none of them were any different than we've seen from the real guys. One thing I actually like is the way they are calling holding, neutral zone infractions ( lining up offsides), delay of game ( Peyton didn't get his customary extra second), and not letting OT's "cheat" by lining up more than a yard off the LOS or get the extra few milliseconds before the snap. Here's an NFL.com link about Aaron Rodgers complaints; http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000061357/article/aaron-rodgers-replacement-referees-were-frustrating?module=HP11_headline_stack Rodgers griping about how screwy the rule book is interpreted? Has he ever played in a game chiefed by Mike Carey? A big deal is being made about the non-call on the punt return by GB, but we know the real guys miss the obvious, too--witness the PR TD in the Pitt game last year--he wasn't even buried in the congestion--it was all alone for everyone (except the ref) to see. Bottom line--I've seen the real guys with years of experience make the same stupid calls and non-calls. I can't say a single crew genuinely infuenced the outcome of any of last weeks games. If nobody had let us in on the fact that they are replacements, never would have noticed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
