TONS of recently added younger, inexperienced officials, are a huge factor and impact to games. They continue to want to show “who they are”. Make a name for themselves. Get noticed. Add in, the recent promotion of more seasoned offcials to the head official position, adds more incompetency. It is sickening.

Payton said during the postgame newser that ever penalty he saw was legit.

Our penalties were not because anyone was trying to prove a point or make a name for himself or because the game was fixed. The flags were thrown because we repeatedly committed crucial, legit penalties.

Just call it equally.

Do we have any evidence they didn’t?

They missed what should have been a PI that Apple drew. Beyond that, I didn’t see anything obvious they missed against Atlanta.

Officials didn’t contribute to this loss.

No one said anything about fixed. Where does that come from? Officiating is mostly interpretation of given rules and cause and affect on a play. In other words. If an offensive holding takes place, on the opposite side of the field, far removed from a successful play, (IE; long run), why is the need for the holding to be called, as one simple example?

I would not agree with that. Did you see the entire field, on every play, with the Falcons? Maybe they happened to interpret better, with regards to the Falcons.

And I never said any of the penalties called agsinst the Saints, was not legit. But keep spinning things the way you want.

I respectfully disagree. Agree to disagree. I won’t ignore the fact that we were also bad today.

No. But I doubt anyone here did, either. And people are making assumptions that the Falcons were committing blatant penalties that the officials missed whereas we were just unlucky that they caught the ones we committed (and didn’t miss others we committed).

There just isn’t evidence that the officiating was called improperly. Certainly nothing beyond a normal game and certainly nothing one-sided.

Neither of the false starts should have been encroachments. They were both correct calls.

And I did see Cam pointing at the Falcons player. But I didn’t see any actual foul (and they didn’t show the replay).

How about the elbow and throat punch on one of ours after the play? No call.
