The NFL referees came under scrutiny this week after they decided to pick up a flag thrown for pass interference at the end of the Patriots-Panthers game.
Glenn Ordway, Fred Smerlas, and Steve DeOssie gave their opinions of the no call on New England Tailgate.
“The refs disgraced themselves with the Patriots game down in Carolina,” Smerlas said. “And they’ve been disgracing themselves in other games talking trash to players. Should refs be allowed to use foul language to the players in games? What a disgrace.”
Ordway believes a call a referee makes at the beginning of the game should be called at the end of the game.
“Well if you’re going to call it in the first quarter, or the second quarter, or the third quarter, it should be called in the last minute of the game because it has the same impact up on the scoreboard,” Ordway said. “I want consistency with the officials.”
