“Mark Bradley from Down in Atlanta” . . . when we was playing ball one time ESPN talked about “Sonny Clusters from down in Lilburn” it sort of put us on the map.

Boy, what terrible officiating. I took several naps during the first quarter, waiting for the refs to make a decision…SOMEONE (either the refs or the NFL) NEEDS TO MAKE A DECISION ON THE LOCKOUT…big time game, prime time showing on a national level beween big time teams, played by big time players…BUT officiated by not even big time refs (div II and/or div III stand-ins)…pitiful, pitiful, pitiful!!! These officials will not be ready after 20 games (4 pre-season, 16 regular season) to call playoff games…those games means MONEY, MONEY, MONEY…need I say more.

Considering how times the Falcons offense got the ball I thought they were pretty unimpressive. When are these superstar wideouts going to actually produce anything besides potential on paper.

BTW – Interesting how the whole Michael Turner “situation” is being ignored.

The Michael Turner ’situation?’ that I am concerned about, is the lack of yardage that the running game produced.
If you are talking about his DUI, let me say this, a person can drink two beers and pull a .08 on the alcohol monitors. Not to mention that the devices that the law uses in Ga. are inaccurate.

the actual statistics on the refs so far compared to last season are
0.4 less flags/ game
30% reversals vs. 48% with the regular refs.
games are avging 15 min longer, (which is bad),
but the numbers indicate they’re actually doing a good job.

Its punks like Fox & DelRio goading and abusing them because they
think they can, and thug teams like the Eagles taking advantage of
them in the secondary, and that serial punk Finnegan & his punk coach.
Give them the power to eject & fine punks on the spot,
and let them eject a few.
Having said that, I’m pro union & i hope the refs win & get back out there

Mark Bradley, what’s the deal with your tight filter?

If you’re throwing less flags, of course you’re going to be reversed less… Doesn’t mean you’re observing or calling the plays correctly… What’s the “source” on your stats?

Hey dog fans: I see your team is still running away from playing real competition. What a weak schedule; no, what a pathetic schedule. FAU? What a joke. But go ahead a pretend the dogs are a top 10 team. We know better.
Overrated.

That’s like being called stupid by the village idiot. Doesn’t have as much sting to it.

The weakest team on the Dawgs schedule is Tech.

I really don’t think the refs are doing that bad. It’s kind of fun watching the kids pick on the substitute teachers.

[...] which was radical in its conception and implementation, failed at the moment it was needed most. Anyone who watched the Falcons-Broncos game of the previous Monday night grasped that the on-field officials were so cowed by the setting that they were scared to call [...]
