In this game, it's not a case of being flawed. Two refs were standing 5 yards from the Reggie WIlliams TD and chose not to throw a flag, but they throw a flag on Witten's TD. Keep in mind this is a Jacksonville home game.

Could somebody get Parcells a manzierre or a bro? Good Lord.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

Exactly. There is no way one was a penalty and the other wasn't. They are right there, 2 of them. If you call it one way one time just be consistent. Had they been consistent The game would be tied.

Weird. In all three of those examples (Heath, Lewis, Reggie, and Witten), the home team was the beneficiary of the call.

Your point? Matt Jones had a catch that got reviewed and overturned despite it being quite clear he'd caught the ball. Unless you've got a list of all refs, who is at which game, and where they live, you've really got no basis to even make the insinuation that the refs are clearly bias to home teams.

Heck, as I'm typing this, the refs clearly made a call in Dallas's favor, big call overturning a game ending INT, when there was no evidence on replay to justify overturning the call on the field.

Look, anyone whose paid attention knows you have a serious ref conspiiracy theory thing going on, but the simple fact is Dallas did not play well enough to win tonight.
