Officials Erred on Punt Return Call

I didn't see this posted anywhere yet, but according to a Washington Times source the officials admit they screwed up the call on the Jackson TD:

Washington Times - Help is likely on the way

Quote:
A Redskins source said the NFL admitted that officials erred in picking up a penalty flag that would've negated a first-quarter punt return for a touchdown by the Eagles' DeSean Jackson.

The officials apparently were confused over which No. 50, Washington's Khary Campbell or Philadelphia's Tank Daniels, committed an illegal block in the back. It was Daniels.

Not surprising to hear this. I felt like throwing my redskins gnome through the tv when that happened.

Not only have there been a lot of screw ups, but they've been game changing or potentially game changing screw ups.

Re: Officials Erred on Punt Return Call

well, it doesn't take the points back, but it actually does make me feel better... the eagles know we really beat them 23-10

Re: Officials Erred on Punt Return Call

yeah, something should definitely be done, but the problem is the nfl doesn't hire any full time refs. All these guys work different jobs (lawyers, judges, etc.) all week and then come in and ref games on sunday, therefore it makes it nearly impossible to punish them in any way.

I think a good idea would be to put more cameras up at different angles and have a panel of refs monitor them from a booth, while keeping constant communication with refs on field. Coaches should also be able to challenge more calls than they are allowed. For example, we should've been able to challenge the "picked up flag" in the eagles game. Sean Payton should have been able to challenge the no-call on Bush's facemask, etc. Ultamitely, it is not fair to have the game dictated by somebody who is part of the nfl for only one day a week.

Re: Officials Erred on Punt Return Call

Get rid of coaches challenges, put someone up in the booth with the ability to challenge ANY play. This "whistle was blown" and "Down by contact" bullshit pisses me off.

Re: Officials Erred on Punt Return Call

WOW someone on hear said that in their opinion, the ref who threw the flag was having trouble getting the numbers right and since a td hanged on his call and the home town fans were screaming the ref was on the hot seat and decided to just pick it up instead of taking the self embarrassing time to figure it out and get it right . . . . .

whoever you are i think you hit it right on the button, i wouldnt think a ref would succumb so easily to alil pressure . . . . . what a F*$K$# joke.

i would rather have a ref believe in his call even thoo he saw it wrong then have a ref see it right, throw the flag then pick it u cuz he doesnt want to look like an idiot who got the numbers mixed up . . .

Heyer penalty - i havent heard the nfl's response but i did see it was categorized as "unnecessary contact otherwise not in the play" . . .even thoo dockett is a pass rusher and JC was just releasing the ball . . . . oui vay

go skins!!
ps - weve had 3 tds either allowed or taken away from us this year due to bad calls, is my count correct? heyer, jackson return and ARE (which is bit of a stretch imo) . . does rabachs phantom holding call count?

Re: Officials Erred on Punt Return Call

idk what they could do about the "whistle is blown" thing, you cant tell players to play after the whistle that would open up the pandora's box imo. the only accomadation i think they could make is to tell officials to err on the side of caution and not blow the whistle and let the play play out like they're supposed to do with questionable fumbles but im not if that is a viable option.

seems refs are having a tough time finding consistency with the facemask calls. since they got rid of 5 yarders everything is 15 now to allow players to initially grab the face mask then let go without a penalty. i think this was a good move because it was ridiculus to not expect inadvertant facemasks in this game of tackle the ball carrier.

the more they try to un-ref the refs the more problems were seeing. i guess like hockey a few years ago where they tried to open the game up by clamping down on holding/interference this is going to take a few seasons to find some balance and consistency.

go skins!!

I still am amazed that they blew that call, it was so obvious and one official was standing right there watching when it happened.

Re: Officials Erred on Punt Return Call

I mean it doesn't take away from the fact that we won, so it doesn't matter to me. Had it cost us the game, the apology wouldn't have mattered either, because we wouldn't get that 7 pts off the scoreboard. I realize that there's human error in anything we do, but it just seems like the refs are really screwing up this season
