    I just hope the queens don't cruise through the plauoffs like that. I noticed that the refs are a lot more fair in the postseason b/c big brother goodell is watching.

    I still think the dumbest pro Viking call was against San Francisco for a late hit against Favre when Favre still had the ball in his hand.

    I don't want to say the NFL is influencing games by coercing refs to be more lenient in calls on a particular team like the NBA does. But, in the Arizona game, Farve is basically body slammed and no flag. How that was not called I have no idea. Incidentally Arizona goes on the win that game. Just the more I see of these BS calls the more I wonder.

    Time to get some professional Ref for the NFL. Ridiculous they use part time refs who spend the rest of their time doing tax returns or something.

    The refs are partial to home games and and hate to say it, but to some quarterbacks. But most of the time the games that are decided by questionable calls, the losing team can look in the mirror and know that if they had played better it wouldn't have mattered. Take care of business first and one or two bad calls ain't gonna matter. Then again sometimes they are so blatant it's ridiculous.

    But, in the playoffs where a game can come down to a last minute field goal. Both teams are playing their hearts out, a blown call that costs or gives a team 7 points is HUGE. Or calls that stall drives.

    I feel bad for players who play their guts out, and then get jobbed by a Ref who is star struck or slightly more favorable toward the home team.

    There was a study done on soccer referees that showed the Ref were biased toward the home team. I guess that is where the home field advantage comes from.

    Believe me, I feel you're pain, but at least instant replay helps some. It's just too bad they apply the rules sometimes and sometimes they don't. If Jenning's catch wasn't a TD, I don't know what you have to do to get one. But my point is that the Pack should have kicked the Bear's butts, especially with Cutler's two picks. IMO the game should not have been that close. I agree though that it sucks when a team plays out of their minds just to keep up and it's handed to the home team.

    Yeah..I would have to agree...

    The Packers had some "home cookin" at quite a few home games so far this year....
