Count me 100% on board with Belicheck! So far, the officiating in the HOF Game and the first preseason games has been deplorable. I watched the Pack and the Chokers last night and couldn't believe the quality of officiating that occurred,or, in most instances, didn't occur! I, personally think "Celebration" is a BS call, but, be that as it may, the NFL defines "Celebration" as a choreographed or planned demonstration in which the player "leaves his feet" (except in the instances of the Lambaugh leap) or otherwise is extreme in his celebration. An overzealous ref called a Packer player, for "Celebration" because he made a muscle
...bam!... fifteen yard penalty...CHILD PLEASE
Meanwhile "Holding" is going on all over the field on both sides but nobody is watching because focus is all on tackling! C'me On Man!
Jon Gruden talked extensively about the importance of getting the referee dilemma solved without further nonsense before the regular season begins, and even sooner, as player safety and integrity of the game is at stake. YEAH CHUCKIE!....You tell 'em...hope da Fur was paying attention !
Everybody is fed up, and sick to death, of The League's off season drama and just wants football back in it's unadulterated form!
...and, while we're at it, can we keep da wimmins confined to refing da wimmin's sports?
It's bad enough that we have to suffer the token bimbos the Networks feel obligated to insert in the pregame/postgame analysis. Guess they haven't received the 411 that women are responsible for the way the majority of household budgets are spent
