    I think the tea bag will be much more effective without the pain of a broken leg to deal with

    I'm old. I grew up watching sports with my dad and four brothers. My dad coached basketball and baseball and almost every year went to some kind of post season playoffs. I was schooled on how games are played and how refs react. Refs DO play favorites, based on who the team is, who the is player flavor of the week, who the coach is. They try not to-maybe-but they are human and humans play favorites. It's in the makeup of what we are. And because the refs have favorites, they see the play based on their mindset. . Perception is all there is in this existence and we all perceive things differently. So, by nature, refs cannot be neutral. It is what it is.

    And this your lesson for the day. Use it wisely:p:cj:

    I've had my fill of Mike and the Munchkins, whole staff needs to get bounced. That being said, he gets screwed all the time on challenges. The Colts first down and Jags touchback were clearly called wrong. It's painful at times.

    4 feet? Luck needed binoculars to see the down marker he was that far away.

    He lets the crowd dictate his challenges. And at least half of our fans are morons who don't fully understand the game of football.

    Every time Munch throws the challenge flag I cringe and say bye bye timeout.

    To be fair... I think it's pretty clear that the Refs don't really pay much attention to anything Titans' related - I.E.: Jake Locker's first injury and Walker getting headbutted.

    I don't think Locker's first injury was that bad, he is just brittle and they did call a flag on the play. As for the headbutt, I agree they were nowhere to be seen there!

    I don't think they threw flag on Locker's first injury against the Jets. The Ref told that first defender he was fine and it was a legal hit - which is was EXTREMELY borderline. MY problem is the SECOND hit that actually caused the injury and was EXTREMELY late and not borderline. Not called at all because you can literally watch the play happen and the Ref that is supposed to be watching the Play around the QB wasn't. He watched as the ball left Locker's hand.

    You can literally see the Ref watching the ball, and not the QB, as Locker is getting hit by both players.
