So on today’s episode of Turtleboy Tuesdays on 100.1 FM the Pike, Radio Turtleboy and Cruisin Bruce were discussing the debacle that was the Patriots-Broncos game. Here’s the condensed podcast. I disagree with Radio Turtleboy that the Patriots weren’t better off losing a game during the regular season. The best thing that would’ve happened to us in 2007 was losing that last game of the season against the Giants. No way we lose to the same team twice.

But I gotta agree with RT on one thing –  the outcome of that game isn’t really gonna end up mattering. The Patriots schedule the rest of the way is ridiculously easy and there’s probably a 95% chance they finish 15-1 and get home field throughout the playoffs. By that point everyone will be coming back healthy and there is no way Denver or any other team will be able to come into Foxboro and beat us.

Anyway, a major beef I have with the refs is that they’re too damn old. Think about it. They’re out there with some of the finest conditioned athletes in the world. When the players turn 30 their careers are basically a ticking time bomb unless they play kicker or quarterback. Tony Carrente, the 64 year old schmuck who reffed the game, was like your confused grandpa out there:

So my question is, why are we letting old people on the field? I love old people, don’t get me wrong. But they shouldn’t be driving cars or reffing NFL games. That’s just science. It’s not like you get better  at reffing as you age either. These are human beings, not French wine.

Well it looks like the NFL is kind of getting the message. This weekend’s 49ers-Cardinals game was a huge joke too. Just like the Pats game, this matchup was officiated by a 64 year old man named Pete Morelli. And he completely ruined the game with this roughing the passer call:

Yea, a 35 year old man isn’t making that call. But your grandfather is. And for that reason his crew has been taken off of the upcoming Sunday Night game:

Oh yea, and guess which game Grandpa Morellis is gonna be reffing this weekend?

I mean, they’re not even trying to hide the fact that they’re trying to fuck us, are they? This has become scorched earth policy for Goodell and I love every minute of it. We started off 10-0 and he had no choice but to schedule the guys from Old Balls’ bridge game for all of our remaining games.

Here’s my question – why is he doing any games at all? I wouldn’t want this guy reffing Turtleboy Jr’s Pop Warner game. Check out his Wikipedia pageThe guy has pulled many a boner in his illustrious career as an NFL ref. And why is Tony Carrente not benched too? The bottom line is that football is probably the easiest sport of the four major sports to officiate. Basketball is the hardest because it’s insanely fast, and it’s almost impossible to differentiate between a blocking foul and a charge sometimes. Balls and strikes shouldn’t even be called by human beings anymore, because it’s so inaccurate and difficult. And in hockey there’s so much gray area about what’s a penalty and what’s not because they just let you beat the shit out of each other.

But football isn’t that hard. You have a flag in your pocket and you only throw it if you see something blatant. That’s it. But these old guys can’t control their bladders, never mind controlling their flags.

    The NFL is a microcosm of the world today. Success is frowned upon because if someone, or some team, is successful it shows that those who aren’t as successful have failed. And that makes people feel bad. So the NFL is doing their damned best to make sure a superior team like the Patriots doesn’t shine. Otherwise it’s too obvious that the rest of the league COULD succeed if they just tried.

    Sad world we live in isn’t it?

    My coach used to always tell us good teams don’t win close games they avoid them. As bad as the officiating was you are white washing the fact the Pats blew a 14 point lead with less then a quarter to go. Blame the officials all you want. Was it the referee who went three and out on the first drive of OT? Was it the Referee who muffed the punt? Blame Bill for putting a rookie out there to catch the punt. Chung has a ton of experience returning punts. The weather was atrocious, a rookie shouldn’t have been out there. On a side note I referee hockey HS and College D1 & D3. I find it funny when people boo me. I’ve had coaches and players get in my face. The funny thing is the more you yell at me the less likely you are to get those close calls. Maybe Brady should think about that before he gets in the referee’s face. Just a thought
