The replacement officials are a disgrace and they are dangerous. I blame them for that scary hit on Heyward-Bey. The game already was out of control because no one respects these officials. Heyward-Bey got hit helmet to helmet — the officials’ fault.
Bill Belichick grabbed a ref, certainly not allowed, but it’s because he does not respect them.
Roger Goodell keeps pretending the refs are doing a good job. Goodell says he cares about the safety of players. Did he care about the safety of Heyward-Bey?
The knucklehead refs probably cost the Lions the game in their OT loss to Tennesse. They marked off the penalty from the Detroit 44 instead of the Tennessee 44. Tennessee kicked the game winning field. If the penalty had had been assessed correctly, Tennesse would have punted.
The refs gave Jim Harbaugh an extra timeout.
These replacements don’t even know the rules and they are dangerous.
