    RAVEN RANT:

    "The quality of refereeing in the NFL has come into question in the past several weeks with some very strange and controversial calls with enormous ramifications. NFL commissioner Goddell has been scrutinizing and fining players for everyday occurances (DUI, etc) to which it is the resposiblity of the law to administer justice. He has done nothing to address the serious questions that have been brought to light by some very strange calls by many refs including Walt Coleman. I have never in my life seen more flags picked up and replays simply gotten wrong every week in almost every game. It has become standard practice for the league to send apology letters to teams when errors are made by the refs, and many of these letters have gone out recently. When do I get my apology letter? When will Goddell clean up the obvious credability problem the NFL is headed for, the appearence of any inpropriety must be addressed now before we have another Donaughy on our hands. To think it happened in the NBA and that was completely isolated is simply being unrealistic. The amount of money being wagered nowadays on sports it requires commissioners like Goddell to do his job and protect the public by keeping his sport free from any possible perception of inpropriety. He seems much more interested in the personal life of the players then he does in making sure his refs are without reproach. I am calling for everyone to cut and paste this letter and send it to NFL headquarters as it is commissioner Goddell's job to make sure these games are being played on a "level playing field", which he has not done and is neglegant in not pursueing these issues. Do your job Goddell, and clean up the obvious appearence of outright bogus refs, Walt Coleman needs to answer some very difficult questions. If you don't ask these questions then you have no right to fine one single player for anything, you are on a pulpit of ethics yet you allow this complete appearence of inpropriety in how games are being called. DO YOUR JOB!"

    rf- You are absolutely right, the technolgy in Tennis has eclipsed that used in the NFL. When was the last time someone walked into a casino to bet on a Tennis match, yet they are extremely careful to get the calls right. What is wrong with the commissioner and his failure to address these issues? Serious questions are coming up every week and the NFL offices must be spending a fortune in postage sending out apology letters. Why we don't have some type of electronic device that clearly can prove whether the ball breaks the plane of the goal line as it calls for in the rules of the game is a complete mystery to me and negligence on the commissioners part.

    Re: Class Action Case against NFL !!!

    This is pathetic. Why don't you get everyone to start a chant at the next home game? Something like "Better Refs Now! Better Refs Now!". You can do it at the start of the second quarter right after "Put Art In!".




    Why do I even read this board anymore?

    Re: Class Action Case against NFL !!!

    I will still read, but I agree with Losac 100%.

    Hey, you know what champion teams do?

    THEY DONT LET A GAME COME DOWN TO ONE CALL!

    I know this is a news bulletin for some, but the officials are HUMAN. Maybe the quality has dropped, maybe it has not. That's for much smarter people then I to decide.

    What I do know is dynasty teams like the 49ers, Cowboys, Steelers (yes, I said it) and the Pats all have set the bar high so this presise situation does not happen!

    You go ahead and file some silly law suit that will make us look like a bunch of whiners..

    Me, I will continue to hope Harbs takes this team to a level where one call, good or bad, does not determine the game (or season).

    I am more proud then ever of our team.

    I knew the Stoolers would need help to win the game, but I never expected it to be from the officials. This game was so reminiscent of the Tennessee game, it's ridiculous.

    UNLEASH THE BEASTS!!!!

    Losac,

    Yes this was for real. Yes I was and am serious. I am a FAN and a very loyal fan at that! Listen if you pay for seats you should expect a honest game. Ok so maybe I am also pissed at our team. Yes we should have never let them go from the 8 to the goal line. Yes we should have score more then field goals! YES YES and YES !! I agree 100% that the win or loss should not have been only due to the officials !!!

    However, as a Fan and as a paying customer to the NFL I expect the level of the officiating to be correct. I due and will always expect that they should have the same goal of only making the correct call and overturning mistakes when challenged.

    Are we a better team then most people thought at the start of the year? Yes !

    Now TRAP? Yes I know how much money the NFL has and yes this can be done for $20,000 total!!!! Here is what we know will happen.

    #1) Case will be filed in Baltimore City
    #2) NFL Will Defend
    #3) We will call Mr Coleman as a witness
    #4) NFL will send a lawyer on his behalf and a letter from Coleman.
    #5) NFL will ask for an injunction to stop the case
    #6) We will ask for a settlement that includes policy changed to prevent poor officiating.
    #7) The NFL will work a simple solution and offer no payment to settle the case

    Now what good does this do for us? It shows the NFL that FANS care and Demand the TRUTH !!! That is simple as it gets!

    Now for the money !!! $20,000 is less then 29 Cents per Seat !!! I know I can afford that ... Can you???

    Re: Class Action Case against NFL !!!

    Forget it. You have to show some type of real loss / damage. Unfortunatly, the only thing we loss was the game and that damaged our egos. Fuck the Stools and their fans. Oh, yes.... fuck the refs!!

    Re: Class Action Case against NFL !!!

    Real loss was the true face value of the game tickets .. However we moved on from this idea and changed to using the State of Maryland Consumer Protection Service and the letter to the NFL and Congress!

    It is free and will take less time to get any action.
