    NFL Refs are so bad or the fix is in.

    The last play tonight Giants at Redskins..
    PI by the giants that was not called…was all over the receiver before the ball got there…There has to be special flag to challenge penalty at least in the last quarter or some time frame before end of the game….Either NFL refs suck or the fix is in with Vegas and the NFL…

    The call on the TD challenge in the game between the Pats and the Raiders was clearly wrong. Even the announcer saw it and circled it on replay; so it was that clear... Fortunately, the Christmas Eve game is in Pittsburgh, so the Raiders' "home cooking" fix won't be in as far as venue... Something to be aware of... Pittsburgh needs to avoid even the APPEARENCE of contention...

    That missed call cost a friend of mine $400 dollars. He is pissed and said the same thing.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    Your friend's addiction to gambling cost him $400. And therein lies the real problem behind suspicious calls and the appearance of impropriety, it's just too easy for anyone with a phone to bet on live sporting events.

    Including men and women in black and white striped shirts.

    Not my place or yours to make diagnosis on addiction.

    They didn't want Washington winning that game

    League punishing Dan Snyder when they get the chance

    I could have swore the WR was wearing a backpack that looked like a DB

    It's almost every game now, and expected that refs will make a game changing call. It started with the Vikings getting ripped off on Saturday. Let's see what's they have up their sleeve for Monday night.

    Challenging PIs was an experiment that the league already ran. And it was a horrible decision.

    I hope they never go back to it.

    I don't the the addiction part is the point he's making.

    When you lose any amount of money on one play, it's easy to think the fix is in.

    Heck, you don't even have to have money on the game. Look at the Jesse James play.

    Refs are human and miss calls.

    But it's really easy for us to put a narrative on that when the calls they miss impact our wallets (or our hearts )

    It was tongue-in-cheek, but bets don't place themselves. It's called "gambling", not "winning", and the odds of doing it well over an extended period are not good.
