A thought for those fans who are near the field next week. Please - before the game Toss flags down in protest and cite " ILLegal scabs on the field". Unbelievably terrible calls for both sides. The officiating really took the fun out of this one.
Sure bad calls happen and the ref's are only human. Their is an old adage of "Sure their is a holding penalty every down" or " contact on the receivers', but the over rigorous flag toss is not the way to conduct the game. I was initially satisfied until a couple of holding calls came up against both teams and then the rag toss fest began. The officials appeared as overzealous as possible.
