Is officiating getting worse?

I don't know if anyone watched the Monday night game, but Minnesota was down a bunch of points but finally started moving the ball. A pass was thrown, completed and then fumbled out of bounds (initial ruling). Then Belichek starts bitching, the refs gather in a huddle and remarkably change their mind - incomplete pass. The review shows it clearly was a catch - even Joe Theisman can see it was a catch. And we have to endure Joey T saying it was a catch for the next 2 minutes. The refs come back and say - no catch. ??? That took all the wind out of Minnesota's sails and the game was clearly over at that point. There were also several ticky-tack PI calls during the game that went against the Vikings.

I find myself slowly losing interest in watching NFL games (not the Chiefs, just other games). To me there is nothing worse than watching a poorly officiated game - especially one that for all purposes changes the outcome of the game (ala the Jets this weekend).

I don't get the same level of frustration from watching college games and IMHO I think college games are better officiated.

Is there any way to improve the calls? I thought after last years Super Bowl that officiating would be under scrutiny, but the league continues to worry about silly things like fining Chad Johnson and Rooney.

The officiating in that Monday night game was disgusting. That group should be suspended.

When they do a review and get it wrong...just inexcusable. And later this week that slimy head of officiating spinmeister will be on the NFL Network telling us it was the right call.

Yes, Mr. Chiefnj. It is.

The NFL has more money than they can count. There is absolutely no reaason why they can't field more officials at each game, and train them adequately. It's a travesty fostered by the gooey pus that seeps endlessly from Satan's anus.

The guy that allowed Bellichick to talk him out of the call should be f**king fired. That's just retarded. Did you or did you not see the play?

If only Mark Cuban owned an NFL franchise. He would scientifically prove who the worst refs are.
Look, refs are always gonna make bad calls. Its an eternal truth. You can only hope that th refs actually review their mistakes and try not to make them again.
The one thing I hate most is if the end of a game is determined by a call by a ref. Other than that, you just have to deal with it, and if the refs are screwing you, find a way to overcome it. One week their calls could be going against you and the next week they could be in your favor.

You could also spend some of your giant wads of cash on full time refs who aren't 900 years old.

Or is that just dumb?

I also hated how on the same series toward the end of the game, Corey Dillon celebrated a run by chucking the ball across the field and then Ben Watson celebrated a catch by spiking the ball in front of the defenders. If that was the Chiefs, we would have been penalized and possibly removed from the league, but when the Patriots do it, its a cute display of emotion.
