NFL Refs Suck!
Ever watch your team get screwed? Notice how 95% of the time, when an official blows a call, the league stands by the official and the issue is dropped? It's time the league starts listening to fans! Let's send a message to the NFL to stop hiding, to stop covering up, and start addressing mistakes made by officials!
Mike Perreira, NFL Director of Officiating;
We the undersigned petition the National Football League (NFL) to publicly address concerns of fans with regards to officiating. We believe the NFL fails to seriously consider problems with NFL officiating and intentionally chooses to overlook and suppress officiating mistakes. As such, we ask the NFL to implement the following:
1. publish in advance the crew assignment schedule for NFL games
2. publish performance statistics of all NFL officials
3. publicly acknowledge mistakes made by officiating crews each week
We believe an open review of NFL officiating will improve overall performance and will aid in enhancing the current image NFL officials have with fans. Our ultimate goal is to improve the game by increasing accuracy and identifying officials with a pattern of poor officiating.
