The official "refs screwing the Patriots" thread

You're not trying to have a discussion. You're trying to incite a an arguementative response. Any questionable play in game and you're on this thread bantering.

You can't argue the Brady fumble. Whomever has it by the time the refs get there, wins. That's universal football knowledge. Hell the Eagle player ran 30 yards downfield even while the refs were still pulling people off.

Yet you still want to bemoan it.

I'm surprised that bagobonez hasn't mentioned the 'pick' that was set for TO, causing for two Eagles receivers to be taken out of the play.

I just don't understand why the refs find it inconceivable for any call to go against the Eagles unless a challenge flag is thrown.

Look at the major plays of the first half so far. McNabb's gets sacked, yet the ref doesn't see his knee down. If McNabb had completed a long pass instead of fumbling, New England would have been screwed because that's an unchallengable play if I'm not mistaken.

On Givens' fumble, his knee was down for at least 5 seconds before he fumbled, yet the refs can't see this for some strange reason, and furthermore they let the Eagle get up and run with it even though Givens was rubbing all over him after the supposed fumble. The Patriots had to throw a challenge flag to keep themselves from getting the shaft.

I'm not trying to be a "troll" I'm just genuinely upset about the way the refs have Eagle-green colored sunglasses on this whole game so far (although I shouldn't be surprised)

Why haven't there been any strange calls that have gone AGAINST the Eagles that the Eagles have to challenge in order to keep THEMSELVES from being screwed?

I'm not "trolling" I'm really not. These are legitimate complaints if you ask me.

totally! I thought that was a terrible call. Just missed though, not some big conspiracy.

Considering that all of the plays have been correctly called, regardless of before or after a challenge, there's just not a lot of "getting screwed" going on.

So tell me again why this thread needs to be open? Seems self-indulging if you ask me.
