But if they don't, I just hope that they call it consistently, instead of allowing us to bump and rub on first and second downs only to bail out the other team on the money down.
They were really eating the whistles on pretty much all of the games I saw. Bodes well for us.
Exactly. Refs are told to keep it quiet unless it's blatant, because NOBODY wants to be the ref that makes the call that changes the face of the playoffs. They would be the figurehead held up for what has been a crap year of officiating.
That said, I felt the game calling was very balanced. Fans on both sides I'm sure will pick out a million examples of their team being wronged, heck I know we do, but that was a well done game.
