I am going to jump in head first, the NFL officiating of the Texans versus Colts Thursday Night was atrocious. I can take getting my ass beat, I mean I'm a Texan. What I cannot take is being jabbed by the refs. NFL Referee Jerome Boger, he is enemy number one and I don't care about letter of the law and rules. Jerome and his crew flat out determined the outcome of a win or loss. I just wanted to key on (2) plays in particular, the Chaon full nelson on Joseph and the Glover Quinn breathing on a Colt receiver. Below is the video.

As far as the Local Media, I don't know if there is an unspoken code of not calling officials out but I swear if I hear someone say "I am not the one to whine about officiating, BUT". Man what's the deal, y'all have eyeballs, y'all seen what America saw. It's nothing wrong with blowing a gasket on BS calls. You are not whining, in fact you may garner more love from your audience. All day Friday I listened to a media who tried everything in their person not to elaborate on the officiating determining the outcome of the game. Hear me out, they talked about officiating but it was like a sidebar when to me that was the main story. Man we are talking about a playoff bye and media trying to analyze the game when we were cheated. I am not singling anyone out because I understand professionals trying to conform to objectivity. I am not advocating anyone writing a letter to the NFL but man, they could have simply been a fan. All Thursday night I was retweeting National sports pundits echoing the officiating of the game.
Last but not least, I have been one of the loudest opponents of this new NFL officiating. I don't see how you tell 2 to 3 hundred pound barbarians to become tinkle bells. The Subjectivity in NFL officiating is making the game a football an event not a sport. It's almost like they are marketing this great game to females and men are a bonus.
