Yeah but at least it draws attention to a major problem. It’s unbelievable with the Jets. 

I agree, you’re right, at least the powers that be have to realize how bad this looks.

I’d bet that in light of reports like this we get a call.  Of course it would just be a coincidence, would have nothing to do with this report and others before it.

NY Jets fans haven't exactly been too pleased with the state of officiating in Jets games this season. The team has oftentimes found itself the victim of some questionable referee decisions this year, only for the NFL to apologize after the game.

That was the case again this past Sunday in the Jets' Week 6 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat hit Zach Wilson low for what should have been a roughing the passer penalty late in the second quarter.

Instead, the play did not result in a penalty, and the Jets would soon after have to settle for a field goal. Less than a week later, the NFL fined Sweat $16,391 for a low hit on a quarterback that should have resulted in a flag.

But this is the Jets we're talking about. They don't receive roughing the passer calls. In fact, the Jets haven't been the beneficiary of a roughing the passer penalty since 2021 — easily the longest such streak in the NFL.

This has become a troubling trend for the Jets this season. The team is the victim of a missed call in the game, and the NFL apologizes or admits their mistake days later. Of course, that doesn't change the outcome of the game, however.

The NFL continues to screw over the NY Jets with bad refereeing

The NFL issued an official apology to the Jetsfollowing their Week 2 loss to the Dallas Cowboys after a blatantly incorrect roughing the passer penalty against Jets defensive lineman John Franklin-Myers.

Of course, it's impossible to forget what happened in the team's Week 4 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football. Multiple terrible calls on the Chiefs' final drive, including an egregiously bad holding penalty on Sauce Gardner that wiped out a game-changing interception, altered the outcome of that game.

Then there's the controversial blindside block on Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard that occurred in Sunday's game against the Eagles. The penalty nullified a potential 30-yard gain for the Jets, prompting the MetLife crowd to chant, "Refs you suck."

The Sweat non-call, while it flew under the radar, could have had significant ramifications for the Jets. The play in which it occurred was a nine-yard completion to Garrett Wilson. If the penalty was called, the Jets would have been set up with 1st-and-goal with 0:46 to play.

Instead, the Jets had the ball around the 20-yard line and, following a holding penalty of their own, would be forced to settle for a field goal. Who knows what would've happened if the correct call had been made?

This can't keep happening. It's a frustrating experience for fans who just want to see a fair football game, and it's even worse for the players whose careers are being affected.

I always questioned the validity of these stories. Why would the league say anything? 

Hey, we know that call against Sauce against KC totally screwed any chance you had to win and we admit is was just to make Taylor Swift fans happy.

Or make the ref pay a fine for a missed call. That could clean the real bad ones up, 

They kind of do now.  
The refs are scored and the better ones get more post season games which leads to more money.
Doesn’t seem like money is the motivating factor.

The high ratings for those games really helps. It’s gotten a lot of exposure and all those “new” fans that’s they are trying to target probably saw it and were questioning it. Plus the Jets seem to have some support from the average fan this year because of their situation and everyone love an underdog.
 

It’s one thing to lose to a team but you can’t lose to refs. It’s been pissing people off and getting worse for years and is getting to the boiling point. I hope this year leads to some changes.

yo thats crazy that a roughing the passer hasn't been called against a jets opponent since 2021. that can't be accurate

Wouldn’t that presume we have the league’s best offensive line two years running? How else could this be possible?

Also, and this is big because believe what a Collingsworth or an Aikman has to say, the flags or non flags are so egregious that they are called out when they happen and then replayed for all to see.  Not like these plays are swept under the rug

In the meantime, at the owners meetings, Woody pleads his case

Not really, like at all. Offering someone the potential to make more if they do a better job is one thing. Taking the money back they already planned on having is entirely something else.

The league should start a draft compensation or cap relief program for missed calls. 

An alternative would be to allow at least 1 judgment call per game to be reviewed or similar package. Also, the current referee that oversees every TD play should also have the capability to overturn bad calls on the spot. 

fantastic idea
