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. 

I hear you.  Tough call.  Problem is the league only hires rich people to become refs, so rich they’re beyond the point of bribing.  And they’re in a union which combined won’t allow for fines big enough to make a difference.  At least if they don’t qualify for the post season everyone knows they suck

Good point, then for every bad call they must agree to a 10 minute online interview apology interview to go with the with a fan of the team they screwed . I choose @kevinc855as our interviewer,

It’s not stars and scrubs get called though.  Sauce isn’t a scrub.  JFM isn’t a scrub.   

KC are stars, Jets are scrubs.

Mahomes is a star, Zach is a scrub.

So KC gets the calls, Jets don’t. Even a fledgling star like Sauce.

Jordan Rules. Especially when it comes to roughing the passer.

The NFL is so closely associated with gambling that going back to its founding :

 

 

 

football and gambling has been chronicled thoroughly in the book Interference: How Organized Crime Influences Professional Football, by Dan E. Moldea (Morrow). In the early 1920s, one George Halas turned to Charles Bidwill, a bootlegger, gambler, racetrack owner, and associate of Chicago’s Al (Scarface) Capone’s mob, to finance the Chicago Bears. Later, Bidwill bought the Chicago Cardinals. The Bidwill family now owns the Arizona Cardinals.

In 1925, bookie Tim Mara bought the New York Giants. His heirs still have half the team. Notorious gambler Art Rooney took over the Pittsburgh Steelers. His family still controls the team; the Rooney empire is purportedly breaking up so that the racetracks and casinos won’t be mixed with the football team.

In the sport’s first half-century, one team after another was owned by high rollers, often with sordid connections. The Cleveland Browns were owned by crime syndicate bookmaker Arthur (Mickey) McBride, head of the Continental Racing Wire, the mob’s gambling news service. The U.S. Senate’s Kefauver Committee called that news service “Public Enemy Number One.”

 

Combine that with ratings revenue and influence and you just have to face the fact that the NFL influences outcomes. 
 

 

heck Joe Namath grew up hustling in pool halls and retired after he was forced to sell his interest in bachelors III, a bookie hangout

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

Seriously though - at some point you can't blame anyone else but Woody.

The next time a Jets QB's head get hammered and its not called - Woody needs to do something about it.  If it means publicly saying something and pissing off the owners frat - so be it.

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. 

Yup. Said so many times. NFL uses draft comp for several reasons, FA's walking away, hiring a minority coach. They should award points to teams throughout the year based on how bad the calls were and how it effected the outcome. More points a team accumulates, the better the comp pick becomes. At least fans would have SOMETHING to point to when they get screwed over by the refs.

Woody worships the Mara and Rooneyfamily, and the Mara family never airs their grievances publicly… unlike Jonathan Kraft, Jerry Jones and Steve Biscioti. They try and get an advantage for their team and players.

I was thinking about this last week at the game.   This is totally on Woody IMO.  You know other owners (ie Kraft) would never settle for this.  He should be at the game with the NFL on speed dial bitching about every bad/non call.

I’d like to see some type of stat breakdown of how many sacks and hits our QBs have taken in this time period.

Its not like we have been sporting the leagues top oline or like we have had very mobile qbs that can escape.

I would be willing to bet we’re near the top 1/3 of the league in qb hits/sacks allowed, but evidently our opponents just do so completely cleanly and by the rules every single hit….every game.

Here’s what I am seeing when I open the thread. Is anyone else seeing it the way @Dunnieis? If so, my apologies!

Anybody with dark theme on has this problem. I do, but since we chose to turn it on I feel like we should have to deal with black text formatting, and not expect others to format their text specially for us. You're all good.

Jordan Rules. Especially when it comes to roughing the passer.

So you pick and choose which stars get calls and which don’t.  
Jordan rules on penalties designed to save a QBs brain cells and health is a silly take and id bet one that most don’t agree with.  
 

What did Zach have to do with the penalty on Sauce or the non holding call against JJ?

Reality. Jordan rules are a thing. I didn’t invent them.

The Jets aren’t a basketball team.  A phantom foul call in basketball is two points and are nothing in the grand scheme of things.  A blown call like the one on Sauce May have cost the Jets a win.  The call on JFM last season was the losing margin vs the Pats.  

Late hits on the QB, hits to a QBs head can lead to losing a QB for the game, for multiple games and could cost a team a season.  How does that equate to foul shots by Jordan?  

Jordan rule should have no place in a football game and pointing to Jordan rules is lazy

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

I can think of so many against every QB who has played but Rodgers (never thought about it on his hits).  It’s open season on Jets QBs  and everyone knows it.

I’d prefer we get rid of the refs and have AI referee the games. It can instantly scan the All-22, know all the league rules and you don’t have to worry about the ref getting in a receiver’s way.

I would love it if they could make it work.  
Tennis is cool but it’s WAY less complicated.   Baseball is dumb to still be using umps.
